Celer is excited to announce that we have partnered up with Meta Apes, a free-to-play, play-and-earn mobile MMO strategy game, in order to launch the first BNB Application Sidechain – Ape Chain, on mainnet. For this exciting launch, Celer is being used as the default interoperability solution between the Meta Apes BAS – Ape Chain and BNB Chain, while Celer cBridge, as an integral part of the BAS solution, works as the asset bridge for both fungible and non-fungible tokens between Ape Chain and BNB Chain.
With cBridge, the following tokens are able to be transferred between Ape Chain and BNB Chain in a fast, secure and low-cost fashion:
PEEL – the gas token on Ape Chain and governance token for Meta Apes;
SHELL – the utility token for Meta Apes;
Meta Apes Fighters – NFT fighters launched on Galler.
“As the first project officially launching as a BNB Application Sidechain (BAS), we are amazed by how interoperable this cost-effective and customizable one-stop solution is. We are easily connected with different chains with the help of Celer. Based on our dev experience, we believe BAS will likely become a default deployment choice in blockchain projects targeting mass users.” Meta Apes Business Lead, Taylor Shim said.
For users, bridging is as simple as just one click. To bridge Meta Apes Fighters, you can go to the NFT page on cBridge; to bridge the fungible tokens PEEL and SHELL, you can go to the Transfer page on cBridge. Before making a cross-chain NFT or token transfer, you will need to connect your wallet to cBridge, and make sure you have the correct source chain, destination chain and token selected.
Sending bridge transactions on Ape Chain is currently free. However, if you are using mobile wallets (e.g., Metamask mobile, imToken), you will need to manually set the gas fee to 0 to waive it as some wallets will ask you to pay for gas in $PEEL. Please follow this guide to set gas fees to 0 if you are using a mobile wallet.
