Bridge Developer: Harmony
Brief description of the bridge
Horizon is a cross-chain bridge that allows exchange of crypto assets (e.g., fungible/non-fungible tokens, stablecoins) between Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain and Harmony blockchains.. Horizon’s main purpose is to enable transfer of assets from Ethereum (or Binance Smart Chain) to Harmony. Users holding assets on Ethereum (or Binance Smart Chain) can exchange them to corresponding assets on Harmony (1:1). Horizon also allows redemption of the exchanged assets back to the user's Ethereum (or Binance Smart Chain) account at any time.
- BSC Assets
- Ethereum Assets
The Horizon bridge has still the lowest cost for Ethereum to Harmony transfers, however Harmony to Ethereum transfers will be expensive (at high Ethereum gas price). The Ethereum gas cost for Horizon bridge is comparable to every other bridge that is currently on Ethereum mainnet.

I donâ€™t know, but I donâ€™t like the interface of this service. He's not exactly friendly to newbies like me, which was repulsive at first. You will have to spend some time to figure it out, and it is not always enough. Many bridges have a simpler interface. However, I transferred the funds, so everything is okay!
To work with this bridge you should have installed wallet extensions, such as MetaMask or Harmony One Wallet.
The Harmony team has prepared a separate section for Horizon users in their knowledge base. It contains detailed instructions for interacting with the bridge. Here's the link to FAQ section.
1. You need to have installed wallet extensions for each network you plan to interact with. For this bridge it is MetaMask and Harmony One Wallet.
2. You need to have some amount in the native network token yo pay the network fees.
3. Connect wallets to the bridge site.
4. Make sure this bridge supports the token you want to transfer and only then do it.
