Messina Bridge

FAQs on Bridging

How does the Bridge actually work?
When you bridge assets, Messina does not "convert" or "swap“ it. The asset is locked in a smart contract on the source chain and a similar designated asset on the destination chain is unlocked.
Can I send tokens without connecting a wallet?
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.
What are the fees for Bridge?
Depending on the token sent, a bridge fee may be applicable for each transaction (please refer to this page for more details).
Network (gas) fees are incurred are:
  • The source chain gas fee.
  • The destination chain gas fee.
These fees are fees the chain charges to process transactions and may vary depending on the chain.
How long does a bridge transaction take in general?
The bridging speed depends on the source and destination chain, the number of active transactions made at that time, etc. - it may take up to a few minutes, so some time might be needed to allow 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.
What happens if I didn’t receive my tokens after bridging?
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 the source chain - you can go to the Resume page on the Bridge to resume the affected transaction.
  • Bridging was successful but the asset needs to be added to your wallet for it to be visible.
