Transfer ACRE from Acrechain to Osmosis with IBC

Introduction

What is IBC?

IBC is a protocol that allows for the transfer of tokens between different blockchains. IBC allows independently developed blockchains to securely and consistently send data (such as tokens) natively to each other. This is different from cross-chain bridges, which are typically developed by third parties, and the security and reliability of these can vary greatly depending on the protocols they interact with. With IBC, a trustless relayer is used to send data over a dedicated channel, ensuring a secure and consistent experience.

What does this guide cover?

This guide shows you how to transfer ACRE from Acrechain to Osmosis where you can, for example, provide ACRE liquidity to the Osmosis pool. The process is similar for other Cosmos chains that support IBC.

A full list of all supported IBC channels can be found here.

Requirements

To follow this guide you should have the Keplr wallet installed and connected to the Acrechain blockchain. This guide will help you to connect Keplr to Acrechain.

You should also have some ACRE tokens on Acrechain. If you already have ACRE on Avalanche, you can use this guide for the Arable Bridge to transfer ACRE from Avalanche to Acrechain.
