RenVM Integrates Polygon

A direct bridge for BTC and more is live on Polygon

We are excited to announce Polygon as RenVM’s very first chain going live from the Blockchain Blitz!

Polygon has a burgeoning DeFi ecosystem with some obvious benefits for users including faster transactions and significantly lower fees. With Polygon x RenVM Bridge support, anyone can mint and burn the below assets on Polygon. This is a direct bridge so users do not need to go through Ethereum, allowing direct deposits/withdrawals to and from Polygon with minimal gas fees.

Native Assets on Polygon

$renBTC | Bitcoin (BTC) on Polygon
$renBCH | Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on Polygon
$renDGB | DigiByte (DGB) on Polygon
$renDOGE | Dogecoin (DOGE) on Polygon
$renFIL| Filecoin (FIL) on Polygon
$renLUNA | Terra (LUNA) on Polygon
$renZEC | Zcash (ZEC) on Polygon

Bridging Assets to Polygon | RenBridge & MetaMask Support

Now that the integration is live, users can bridge assets through RenBridge. BTC, ZEC, BCH, and DOGE will be supported initially with the others to go live soon after. Prior to bridging these assets through RenBridge, users should:

1) Add the Polygon Network to their MetaMask, with these instructions.
2) Get a small amount of $MATIC to get started with this faucet.
3) Bridge the assets with RenBridge by following the prompts:

4) Add Ren assets as a custom token in your MetaMask (optional). Token Contracts 👇

Polygon (mainnet)
BCH 0xc3fEd6eB39178A541D274e6Fc748d48f0Ca01CC3
BTC 0xDBf31dF14B66535aF65AaC99C32e9eA844e14501
DGB 0x2628568509E87c4429fBb5c664Ed11391BE1BD29
DOGE 0xcE829A89d4A55a63418bcC43F00145adef0eDB8E
FIL 0xc4Ace9278e7E01755B670C0838c3106367639962
LUNA 0x7c7DAAF2dB46fEFd067f002a69FD0BE14AeB159f
ZEC 0x31a0D1A199631D244761EEba67e8501296d2E383

Once bridged you can put these assets to work. To learn more, keep reading 👇

Putting Ren-assets to work on Polygon | Curve Finance, QuickSwap, Varen, and BadgerDAO

Both teams will be pursuing the addition of Ren-based assets on all dApps that exist within the ecosystem but some favorites that we’ll be pursuing immediately are:

QuickSwap | Given its permissionless nature, users can start creating renBTC, renDOGE, and many other pools on QuickSwap right now and earn yield for doing so. To get started go here.

Curve Finance | Curve Finance has proven to be a staple in DeFi, so as with all other chains, we’ll be pursuing a renBTC like-kind assets pool on Curve. Once this is live we’ll have an announcement to follow.

Varen Finance | One of our long-standing bridge partners will be building UIs for bridging ALL Ren-assets to and from Polygon. Once this 3rd party bridge UI is live, we’ll have an announcement to follow.

BadgerDAO | As we continue our long-standing partnership with BadgerDAO, we’ll help add Polygon support to Badger Bridge. Once this is live you’ll have even more opportunities to earn yield with your BTC.

The above are just a few but many more will be added over the summer. As always, any grassroots community support for Ren-based assets is very useful. So to help out, please lobby for Ren-assets to be adopted throughout all various dApps on Polygon.

Building Cross-Chain dApps on Polygon with RenJS

Third-party developers can now build Cross-Chain dApps on Polygon with the RenJS SDK. This will be updated over the coming weeks with tutorials to make the process as smooth as possible for developers.

Looking Forward | Growing the Polygon Ecosystem with RenVM

The addition of Polygon support to RenVM will greatly benefit all stakeholders, providing more utility to Polygon and even more velocity through RenVM.

We could not be more thrilled for this to go live, so spread the word and stay tuned for more to come!

Onwards and upwards,
— Michael Burgess, COO
