What's OKX Bridge and why should I use it?

With over 20 chains supported, our OKX Bridge is the best way to move tokens from one chain to another. Here are some of the features that make it so great:

  • Get the best deal: we'll suggest the best available route for your transaction based on speed and cost. This significantly reduces the time that customers need to spend on researching and comparing prices across different offers.

  • Trade with peace of mind: our proprietary security technology helps you avoid loss by detecting unfavorable trading prices, counterfeit tokens, and rug pulls. OKX Bridge also prevents maximal extraction value (MEV) attacks.

  • User-friendly interface: we integrate features that make it easy for users to exchange the required gas fees to complete their transactions, create your list of favourite tokens for easy tracking and even enjoy features such as limit orders that are more commonly found on CEXs.
