Put your Avalanche X-Chain address, select network, put amount to send and click ‘Withdrawal’

Using Binance Bridge

Go to Binance Bridge and select AVAX as asset and BEP20 BSC for From network, AVAX network as To network. Likely, it would be direct and simple if ‘AVAX C-Chain Network’ is not suspended.

Go back to AVAX Webwallet and check if the AVAX is correctly transferred. Then,

Now you can use Avalanche C-Chain.

Transfer Assets to Avalanche C-Chain

There are basically 3 ways to send your assets to Avalanche C-Chain.

1. Using Centralized Exchange

One of the easiest ways is to buy AVAX from a CEX and withdraw it.

Currently, AVAX is tradable on Binance, Gateio, Coinbase, Huobi, Kucoin and so on, and is withdrawable to C-Chain directly except from Huobi.
(However, Binance suspended withdraw to C-Chain for some reason now.)

2. Avalanche Official Bridge

2nd is to use Avalanche Official Bridge at https://bridge.avax.network/.

Unfortunately, it supports transferring assets from ETH → Avalanche only.
For some reason, AVAX is not supported but ETH, USDT, USDC, WBTC and surprisingly, BUSD can be transferred.

There’s AVAX airdrop event for a transfer amount over $75, but please be aware that there will be ETH gas fee + bridge fee charged.

3. 3rd Party Bridges

Other than that, there are lots of 3rd party bridges such as cBridge or AnyBridge. Please DYOR to use them since there are fees, lack of liquidity or sometimes exploits happen.

BEE is listed on AnyBridge and can be transferred from BSC to Avalanche C-Chain directly. A guide to how to transfer it will be posted later on.

Expanding out of the cradle is an adventure to all of us.
Adventure is always fearful but interesting and exciting.
“Avalanche” is overwhelming but HoneyBee can fly over the mountain!
