Messina Bridge

Frequently Asked Questions

When you bridge tokens, Messina doesn't "convert" or "swap“ assets. The source token is locked in a smart contract, and a new wrapped token that is pre-minted is issued on the destination chain. You can swap those for other tokens on the destination chain if Exchanges on the destination chain support those tokens.
Unfortunately, you cannot send any tokens without connecting wallets on the source chain. For certain tokens, there is a Relay function which can send the tokens to the recipient without connecting the destination wallet.
Depending on the token sent, a bridge fee may be applicable for each transaction (please refer to this table for more details).
Network gas fees are incurred on two chains:
  • The source network gas fee.
  • The destination network gas fee.
These fees are gas fees the network charges to process transactions and may vary depending on the network.
The bridging speed depends on the source and destination network, the number of active transactions made at that time, etc. - it can be up to a few minutes so users will need to allow some time for the transaction to go through.
Once the transaction is verified and confirmed, the bridged assets will show up in the recipient’s wallet.
Occasionally, a transaction may not go through. The error will appear on the Block Explorer page if the transaction fails.
If you don’t receive your assets after bridging, it could be due to one of the scenarios below:
  • The bridging didn’t go through so the tokens weren’t deducted. Please check your wallet transaction page to view your transaction history. If your transaction cannot be found, it was likely not initiated at all.
  • Bridging went through only on one of the Blockchain - you can go to the Resume page on the Bridge to resume the transaction for the affected transaction.
  • Bridging was successful but the token type needs to be added to your wallet so it is visible.
