Sovryn provides the following quick, easy, and convenient methods for acquiring rBTC directly within the dApp.
The SOVRYN platform operates on the RSK Network, and utilizes rBTC for transactions, which is ultimately derived from Bitcoin. As such, obtaining rBTC it requires a peg to BTC.
To simplify the peg of BTC to rBTC, we have implemented the Fast BTC Relay to provide a hassle-free peg method directly in the SOVRYN dApp.
To use the FastBTC Relay and convert your BTC to rBTC, watch the video below or use this step-by-step process.
Currently the fees associated with using the FastBTC Relay are 5000 sats + 0.2% per transaction. Additionally, transactions have the following limits:
These limits are PER TRANSACTION. Users who wish to deposit more than the maximum limit may add more BTC by sending the max limit multiple times over multiple transactions. If you are going to send multiple fastBTC transactions, make sure to wait a good length of time (half an hour) between them to ensure there is no possibility that the transactions are included in the same block.
NOTE: The current fees will be displayed in your wallet while initiating a FastBTC transaction. Be sure to verify your transaction amount is within the minimum and maximum limits. See the “Top Up FastBTC” image below.
To use the FastBTC Relay, you need to engage your Web3 wallet with the RSK Network. (Check out The Wallet Setup Guide for instructions of how to do this)
Use the FastBTC Relay to configure your existing Bitcoin from any exchange or wallet.
