How to Make a Crosschain Swap

Making a crosschain swap is extremely simple, and will likely be very intuitive for users who have used the Sushi UI before. Using SushiXSwap as your crosschain swap choice affords a user the lowest slippage possible, while staying fast and secure.

  1. Visit SushiXSwap directly. If you are on Sushi Swap, you can toggle to use the cross chain swap.

  2. Connect your wallet using the button in the top right corner.

  1. Select source chain and destination chain. Then select the token and input the amount you want to swap, just like a regular swap!
  1. You will be promopted to approve BentoBox - unless you have done so already, you will need to execute a one-time transaction (per contract) giving BentoBox permission to move your funds around.

Once BentoBox has been approved, you only need to select the Confirm Swap button and voila - you’re done! Wait for the transaction to clear on both chains (time will vary depending on the source and destination chains) and you will see your assets on your chosen destination chain in a matter of minutes - an estimated processing time will be shown to you as well.

That’s all there is to it! Now that you know how to make a quick, permissionless and safe crosschain swap, get out there and explore!
