Mode of operation
Transacting Cartesi CTSI on Polygon involves several steps. This method is important because it is impossible to send funds directly from an Ethereum address to a Polygon address.
- First, funds need to be transferred using the Polygon bridge. It is important to note that interested persons also need to hold CTSI tokens in a Metamask wallet to be able to use the bridge.
- Next is to connect with the right network on Metamask (Matic Network).
- Once connected, users need to send the funds to Matic Network.
Once completed, users will be able to make use of Polygon’s Matic PoS Chain as well as connect with DeFi and DApps on Polygon. Polygon ensures users enjoy low fees with the top-notch security associated with the Ethereum blockchain.
Cartesi CTSI now on QuickSwap
Next-Gen DEX powered by Matic Network has added support for CTSI. Facilitating real-time trading alongside near-zero gas fees. QuickSwap is also rapidly rising as the DEX of choice.
Moreover, the listing of CTSI will provide more use cases for both CTSI tokens and the entire Cartesi ecosystem. CTSI can now carry out transactions with BSC, Ethereum, and Polygon.
