Optimism is a Layer 2 (L2) network for the Ethereum blockchain. Using an L2 network can provide quicker transactions with lower fees. You can read more about the difference between Ethereum and Optimism here.
We recently launched our new feature which gives users a way to bridge ETH to Optimism natively on Sound.
What you will need:
Step 1: Sign in to your Sound.xyz account and click on your profile in the top right
Once you have navigated to the drop down menu, select "Bridge".
Step 2: Select how much ETH you would like to bridge
Once you have entered in the desired amount, select "Bridge" at the bottom and sign the transaction that pops up in your wallet.
Once confirmed, the bridging process will start. You will receive a popup in the bottom right of your screen that has the Etherscan transaction which you can use to monitor the bridging process.
Once the bridging is complete, you will see the funds in your wallet whenever you switch back to the Optimism network.
You are now able to use your ETH on Optimism to collect songs uploaded on the Optimism chain. Enjoy the low fees!
