Hello, Polygon! Bridges Goes Multichain

3 min readDec 10, 2022

Calling all Polygon Network traders, gamers, and lovers. Bridges Exchange, the DeFi aggregator focused on getting you the most tokens and savings on every swap, is now available on Polygon Chain.

This is the first, but certainly not the last, chain that we have added since our original aggregator launch last month. This means that Bridges Exchange is officially multichain! We have 57 Bridges Approved tokens in the token list for you to swap. Don’t forget, you can paste addresses in the token search box and swap virtually any token on Polygon. You didn’t think we’d really limit swapping to only 57 tokens, did you?

For those of you who gained your initial DeFi experience on BNB Chain, Polygon (formerly known as Matic Network) is a blockchain scalability platform and framework with a specialty in connecting and growing blockchain networks compatible with Ethereum. In fact, they refer to themselves as “Ethereum’s internet of blockchain.”

If that’s a bit much, just know that you can swap tokens on Polygon the same way that you do on BNB Chain. All you need to get started is a bit of MATIC—the native coin of Polygon—to cover your gas fees. Make sure you switch the network in your wallet to Polygon as well if that functionality isn’t built in.

Switching networks on Bridges Exchange

You’ll now find a network switcher on Bridges Exchange next to the Connect wallet button in the upper right corner. Hover over it (or tap on mobile) to see the list of networks, or blockchains.

For now, you’ll only see BNB Chain and Polygon. As we add additional chains—and we do intend to do that soon—you’ll see them shown here.

Please note that some features, such as liquidity and yields, are only available on BNB Chain. You will need to switch back to BNB Chain before using them.
