Product Updates

XSGD is now available on Polygon via the Polygon Bridge!

July 28, 2021

Polygon (Previously known as the Matic network) is a protocol and a framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks.

Also known as a layer-2 scaling platform, the Polygon chain exists on top of the Ethereum blockchain. The Polygon chain boasts lower gas fees and faster speeds in comparison to the Ethereum blockchain. Users can transfer their ERC-20 token (now known as a Root token) to an equivalent Polygon token (now known as a Child Token) via the Polygon bridge.

We're thrilled to announce that XSGD (Polygon) is now available via the Polygon - Ethereum Bridge.

How it works

To transfer your XSGD (ERC-20) to XSGD (Polygon), connect your wallet to the Polygon Web Wallet. As of the time of writing, three wallets - Metamask, WalletConnect and Coinbase Wallet are supported. 

Next, on the wallet home page, search for XSGD. 

Click on the deposit button to begin the swap of your XSGD (ERC-20) to XSGD (Polygon). Please note that you will need Ethereum (ETH) tokens to pay Ethereum gas fees to complete the transaction.

To swap your XSGD (Polygon) back to XSGD (ERC-20), simply click on withdraw to complete the transaction. Please note that you will need Polygon (MATIC) tokens to pay MATIC gas fees to complete the transaction.

To view your assets on Polygon, ensure that your wallet is configured to the Polygon network
