** The below tokens and the destination chains ares subjects to change. You can verify on the bridge APP what tokens are bridge-able by selecting the destination chain and view if the token you want to bridge is selectable. Always DYOR for liquidity on the destination chain, especially if you are bridging large amounts. So you won’t end up having high slippage on trading on the destination chain!!
