Get FTM from MATIC

Pentesting

I wrote the article about "Get MATIC from ETH" a few month ago.

This time, this article explains about getting FTM (Fantom) from MATIC (Polygon).
Because you're reading this article, you probably know a little about what Fantom is so I don't explain about that. If you're curious, please see the official website.

1. Get MATIC from somewhere

You can purchase it in exchanges or get by swapping from ETH if you own ETH.

2. Set up MetaMask for Fantom Network

If you have not installed MetaMask, please install it to your web browser as extension from here.

Fantom Testnet

After that, you can connect Fantom blockchain with MetaMask.

By the way, about setting up other networks, please see this article.

3. Bridge MATIC (Polygon) to MATIC (Fantom) in SpookySwap

First of all, you must bridge your MATIC from the Polygon chain to the Fantom chain.

By the way, select the MATIC mainnet with MetaMask first.

Go to the SpookySwap and click the Bridge tab.

In the Bridge page,

*For details, please check the official documents.

When opened MetaMask, click the Confirm.

Please wait for a while until Bridging is completed. It takes 10 mins to a few hours.

4. Force the Bridging Tx in the AnySwap

As far as I've experienced, in most cases the Bridging process wouldn't be complete without inform it to the AnySwap Explorer.

After the bridging transaction completed, MetaMask shows the transaction info in the Activity section (selected Network: MATIC mainnet).

Click this and copy the transaction ID.

Go to the AnySwap Explorer and paste the copied transaction ID in the form. Then click the Search icon.

And then, fill each form as following.

After that click the Send button.

5. Get Free FTM for Gas Fee

Perhaps you don't have any FTM. To get the free FTM, please see the official page. You can get it for free from there!

6. Swap MATIC (Fantom) to FTM

Go back to the SpookySwap, click the Swap tab.

Connect to the Fantom Opera (mainnet) with MetaMask.

In the Swap page, select the MATIC in the From, and select the FTM in the To.

Click the Approve MATIC and Confirm in the MetaMask.

After approving, click the Swap.

Finally, you should have been able to get the FTM from MATIC.
