How to Swap LTO BEP2 to LTO BEP20

Announcement Published on: Jan 15, 2021 Last updated: Jan 15, 2021

LTO BEP20 is now available on Binance Smart Chain

LTO Network has a mainnet of its own, but the token also exists on Binance Chain as BEP-2 and on Ethereum as ERC-20 - to enable better liquidity and make it possible to integrate LTO in various DeFi protocols in the future. As of now we have added LTO BEP20 to the list and is supported on Binance Chain Wallet.

A year ago when Binance launched Binance chain they also announced a feature that allows interoperable deposits and withdrawals. Meaning you can deposit an ERC-20 Token to your Binance account and withdraw as BEP-2 Token and vice versa. For example you can deposit LTO mainnet token to your Binance account and withdraw them as BEP2 token (to Binance Chain) or ERC20 LTO token (on Ethereum Chain). However the address for all the networks are different.

BEP2 – Token on Binance chain starts with bnb132ss6lfw4zs5aq4n89vdthaad7hq5m4gtkgf23

ERC20 – Token on Ethereum chain starts with 0x0w978cea8e5beba6df97354ef7f22b66c5a2

LTO - Token on LTO chain starts with 3JoZ8wv68WsKwfsvzqwb3nktfHFv37uCrUD.

We integrated a bridge within our wallet to make swaps between those chains possible in an easy manner. View our blogpost about the Bridge Toll.

Soon after the launch of Binance Chain, Binance issued several pegged BEP2 tokens that are running on other blockchain networks, These tokens are backed by real tokens locked in public addresses, and have allowed users to benefit from both the volatility of these tokens as well as the fast transfer and trading experience of Binance Chain.

BEP20 Network – Binance smart chain

Binance smart chain is a parallel Binance chain designed to enable smart contracts and it comes with an Ethereum Virtual Machine-compatible environment.

It is never meant to compete with Ethereum or replace ETH. BSC is just an ETH-compatible chain and is designed to give users more options such as fast block times, cheap transaction costs etc.

Users will now be able to transfer the same asset (ERC20 token) in shorter time and at lower cost (low gas price) on Binance smart chain (BEP20 token). These are called pegged tokens.

Pegged tokens

Pegged tokens are a type of token that will have its value tied to the original crypto.

For example LTO (BEP-20) token will be pegged at 1:1 ratio with LTO mainnet token. Not only ERC20 tokens, but even tokenized versions of other popular cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Tether (USDT)  are available on Binance smart chain.

The purpose of these tokens is to allow trading assets on DEXs and benefit from the speed and transactional efficiency of the new blockchain.

These coins and tokens are wrapped and pegged by Binance on 1:1 ratio to the corresponding native cryptocurrency. Which means that there are no changes made to the supply of the token.
