The interoperability between the Elrond Network and the Binance Smart Chain makes a significant step forward. eGold tokens can now be swapped between native EGLD <> BEP20 EGLD versions, using the Binance Bridge.

The integration builds on the already existing swap method through the Binance Exchange and adds a convenient avenue for people looking to convert tokens in a more direct manner.

Users looking to swap can go to https://www.binance.org/en/bridge and select the source and destination network, then follow the instructions to send the tokens that need to be converted to a unique address, and receive the converted tokens in the wallet of their choice on the destination chain.

The Binance Bridge automatically connects to the Binance Chain Wallet, where you can store your BEP20 EGLD tokens.

BEP20 EGLD can be used in DeFi products on the Binance Smart Chain, such as the 🥞 EGLD-BNB Liquidity Pool on PancakeSwap.

This integration is important for the Elrond ecosystem as it enables eGold holders to engage more easily with DeFi opportunities on the Binance Smart Chain.
