Bridging assets to zkEVM


Check the list of potential risks associated with the use of Polygon zkEVM in the Disclosures section.

Users can deposit assets from Ethereum and transact off-chain on Polygon zkEVM. For moving assets across chains (L1 ↔ zkEVM), you will need to use the zkEVM Bridge. The bridge interface is available for both Mainnet Beta and Testnet in the Polygon Wallet Suite.

The next video is a guide on how to bridge tokens from L1 to the zkEVM Testnet. The same video applies to the zkEVM Mainnet.

Step-by-step guide

Follow this step-by-step guide on how to bridge assets from Ethereum to Polygon zkEVM Mainnet and vice-versa. Or, from an Ethereum testnet to zkEVM testnet, and conversely.
