1. Background Knowledge

The cross-chain mechanism of Wanchain actually builds a WAN Bridge between two public chains, so that assets on one chain can be integrated into another chain, and vice versa. At the core of a WAN Bridge is a Storeman Group connecting two public chains. Each Storeman Group is a WAN Bridge, and each Storeman Group contains 21 Storeman nodes.

The entire workflow of a Storeman Group is as follows:

For a cross-chain transfer user, you don’t need to fully understand the whole process of the Storeman Group. The most important part for a cross-chain transfer user is 05, that is, Storeman Group running period. You can cross-chain transfer your coins and tokens such as WAN, wanBTC, wanEOS, Link, FNX to Ethereum, and cross-chain transfer ETH from Ethereum to Wanchain.

2. Download Official Wanchain Desktop Wallet

Download official Wanchain Desktop Wallet test version for Wanchain 5.0 Testnet, and generate a WAN address to receive WAN test coins.

Note: please don’t send your mainnet WAN to this test version of WanWallet.

Note: Considering the compatibility issue between the new and the old wallets, we highly suggest you backup and reset your wallet and clear local data.

Please ensure that you have backed up the seed phrase of your previous wallet.

If the wallet fails to start up, it is receomended to rename the folder Wan Wallet as a backup, and then restart your wallet. Take Windows 10 as an example:

Go to Open Data Folder from your WanWallet menu

Go back to the folder Roaming, and rename the folder Wan Wallet

Finnally, restart your wallet.

3. Apply For WAN, Test Coins

4. How to Cross-chain Transfer Coins & Tokens

If you are a cross-chain transfer user, you would like to transfer WAN from Wanchain to Ethreum, here is the operations

Go to Cross Chain>WAN>Wanchain<->Ethereum. It means that you want ot cross-chain transfer WAN to Ethereum or transfer WAN on Ehtereum back to Wanchain.

Click on Convert, key in crosschain related parameters, and complete WAN coins cross-chain transfer from Wanchain to Ethereum or vise versa.

By default, the wallet ony displays WAN and ETH crosschain. If you want to cross-chain transfer with other coins, you have to make them enable, such as BTC, EOS, LINK, FNX. Check the tokens in More Tokens page.
