BASE is an Ethereum layer 2 built and scaled by Coinbase. BASE enables a smooth user experience with 10x cheaper gas fees and lightning-fast transactions. It also allows us to offer free uploads and withdrawals to artists.
What you will need:
Step 1: Visit BASE bridge and connect your wallet
Navigate to BASE bridge to start.
Click "Connect Wallet" and sign the transaction that pops up in your wallet.
Step 2: Deposit your ETH to the BASE bridge
Once you have connected your wallet you can type in the amount of ETH you wish to bridge over and select "Deposit ETH"
Once you click "Deposit ETH" a transaction will pop up in your wallet which you need to sign. Deposits typically take a few minutes to reach the Base network. When the deposit is finished, you will be able to see the transaction here.
Step 3: Withdraw your ETH from the BASE bridge
Navigate to the BASE bridge withdraw tab once the deposit has completed. You will be prompted to switch chains to the BASE network.
Once you have switched networks, enter in the amount of ETH you wish to withdraw (alternatively you can hit the "MAX" button to withdraw it all).
Click "Withdraw" and you will be given a cost breakdown of the fees associated with bridging. Click "Continue" and sign the transaction in your wallet.
You now have your ETH on BASE and can take advantage of the cheaper fees and quicker transaction speeds!
