The Switch Bridge to the Ethereum Network is now live. This means you can now transfer your digital rewards from the Switch blockchain to the Ethereum blockchain.
Why do we need the Bridge? The Switch Blockchain is a Layer 2 blockchain piggy backing off of Ethereum's Layer 1 blockchain. Currently these digital rewards we’ve been earning are on the Layer 2. They will have utility on Layer 2 in the future within Switch, but by bridging them to Ethereum's Layer 1 increase their utility.
When you bridge your digital rewards to the Ethereum blockchain, your digital rewards SWITCH tokens now become SWITCH ERC20 tokens. This then allows for transfers from a Layer 1 wallet to another Layer 1 wallet or the ability for potential trading on decentralized exchanges such as uniswap.
