How to cross-chain swap into Linea with WOOFi

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to perform cross-chain token swaps with WOOFi. Cross-chain swaps enable you to transfer assets from one blockchain to another seamlessly. Whether you're new to DeFi or just need a quick refresher, this guide will walk you through the entire process. Let's get started and learn how to move your tokens across different blockchains with ease.

Step 1: Connect your wallet

Start by connecting your wallet. In the top right corner, click on the wallet icon.

If you're using Metamask, select that option. Note that all major wallets are supported.

Step 2: Choose the source chain

Choose your source chain. This is the blockchain where your assets are currently located.

Select your source chain from the drop-down list. In our case, the source chain is Arbitrum. 

Step 3: Select the token to bridge

You can now select the token you want to bridge. In this case, "ETH" is already selected.

If you want to cross-chain swap other tokens, you can choose from the drop-down list or paste the token address into the provided bar.

Step 4: Choose the destination chain

Choose the destination chain where you want to move your assets. In this example, "Linea" is selected.

Step 5: Specify the amount

Specify the amount of the token you'd like to bridge. In the above tutorial video, the amount is set to "0.015 ETH."

Step 6: Initiate the swap

Click the "swap" button to initiate the cross-chain swap.

Step 7: Confirm the swap

A confirmation popup notification will appear in your wallet (in this case, Metamask).

Confirm the swap in the notification.

Step 8: Wait for the transfer

It will take approximately 2 minutes for the token to arrive in the destination chain (in this case, "Linea"). That's it! You've successfully completed the cross-chain token swap.

How to swap ETH for USDC on Linea with WOOFi

Why Linea?

Layer 2 networks have been on the rise, attracting significant attention and adoption within the blockchain community. This surge in popularity is not just a passing trend; it marks the beginning of a long-term shift that could make Layer 2 blockchains even busier than the most bustling shopping malls on Black Friday. In this analogy, the key to success lies in the protocols that offer great products in prime locations. This is precisely why WOOFi has decided to open a new outpost on Linea.

WOOFi's decision to set up shop on Linea is driven by the belief that Linea is on the brink of a major breakthrough, poised to attract both users and applications in large numbers. The project has already deployed ETH-USDC swaps on the Linea network, marking the beginning of a promising partnership.

But what sets Linea apart, and why are they so confident it will thrive? The answer lies in Linea's strong backing, particularly from Consensys, the entity behind the widely-used self-custodial wallet, MetaMask. With over 100 million users and counting, MetaMask has become a household name in the crypto space. Additionally, Linea benefits from the support of Infura, a node provider handling an astounding 2 trillion requests each year. These endorsements make Linea a formidable contender.

There are more reasons to be excited about Linea's potential. The collaboration between WOOFi and Linea is far from superficial. The two teams have been collaborating closely, with Linea even inviting WOOFi to take over their booth at ethCC and Permiossionless, as well as hosting WOOFi Marketing Lead, George Heath, as a panelist at their L'Apéro side event. This ongoing communication and collaboration signal that both parties are committed to the success of their partnership.

The influence of Consensys within the blockchain ecosystem is unparalleled, and Linea is positioned to receive its full support. In fact, MetaMask users may have already noticed that Linea is now included in the wallet's list of supported networks, along with its built-in bridge and swap features. This integration significantly enhances the visibility and accessibility of the budding Linea ecosystem, crucial factors for driving adoption.

One of Linea's notable strengths is its compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). It can support most Ethereum dApps without requiring extensive code rewrites or additional audits. This compatibility has already attracted hundreds of protocols to set up shop on Linea, including prominent names like Stargate and PancakeSwap. These established protocols and projects are likely to bring a considerable number of users and trading volume to Linea, precisely what WOOFi is looking for in an ecosystem.

Now, let's delve into what WOOFi's integration with Linea means for users and the broader crypto community. WOOFi's move to Linea opens the floodgates of liquidity, enabling traders to engage in ETH-USDC swaps on a significant scale right from the start. The revenue generated from these swap fees will be shared exclusively with WOO token stakers, with 20% of the fees designated for brokers, such as 1inch, Paraswap, OpenOcean, and others, as part of WOOFi's ongoing broker program.

This move to Linea is not a one-time affair; it's part of WOOFi's larger strategy to expand its offerings and cross-chain support. As of now, WOOFi has already executed over 3.5 million cross-chain swaps, and with Linea in the picture, this number is expected to increase substantially. The convenience of being able to enter the ecosystem swiftly and seamlessly from a diverse range of assets with just a single click is bound to attract a growing user base.

In conclusion, WOOFi's expansion to Linea is a strategic move with far-reaching implications. The partnership leverages the support of Consensys, the backing of MetaMask, and Linea's EVM compatibility to position Linea as a promising blockchain ecosystem. WOOFi's integration brings liquidity to Linea and offers exciting opportunities for WOO token stakers. As Linea continues to gain momentum, it stands as a testament to the growing influence of Layer 2 networks and the evolving landscape of cross-chain swaps in the crypto world.
