Bridging wstETH to Scroll

The bridging process lets you transfer your staked ETH to Scroll in around 20 minutes.

Before you get started, make sure you are working with Lido's wrapped staked ETH (wstETH). To wrap your ETH or stETH to wstETH, visit stake.lido.fi/wrap.

  1. Visit scroll.io/bridge and connect your wallet. Make sure you are on the Deposit to Scroll tab.

  2. Initiate a deposit on Ethereum.

    1. Select wstETH in the token list and pick the amount to deposit.

    2. Approve the allowance on your wallet (approving only allowance for the amount you wish to deposit).

    3. Confirm the transaction by clicking Deposit funds.

    4. Once the transaction is confirmed, you can view the transaction details (e.g. status) in the Transaction History.

  3. If your wallet doesn’t auto detect your wstETH, you can manually import wstETH on Scroll using the contract address 0xf610A9dfB7C89644979b4A0f27063E9e7d7Cda32.

Once the deposit transaction status turns to Success, you can view your wstETH balance in your wallet.
