How to convert ACME to WACME

Learn how to convert ACME to WACME using the Accumulate Bridge

Wrapped Accumulate (WACME) is an ERC-20 wrapped version of the native ACME token on Ethereum. WACME allows users in the Ethereum ecosystem to use ACME across an array of DeFi platforms, such as Uniswap and Curve.

The Accumulate Bridge offers a simple and user-friendly method to convert ACME to WACME for use on Ethereum. This article will explore the steps in minting wACME with the Accumulate Bridge, providing a comprehensive guide for beginners and experienced users. Whether you are a new or a seasoned user, this guide will help you navigate and empower you to mint wACME with confidence.


Note: If you would like to test the Bridge on the Goerli Testnet, you can follow the same instructions with the following differences: 1. There is a faucet to get ACME on the Accumulate TestNet 2. The bridge address you are sending ACME tokens to acc://bridge.acme/5-ACME 3. The contract address for importing WACME to MetaMask for the Goerli Testnet: 0xCD08505D03B6bc1a84A5E706536562546A9c99f9

How to add Accumulate to Metamask

6. Send Tokens to the Bridge Token Account, displayed in the Mint Instructions, and add a Memo field containing your Ethereum address.

If you're using the CLI to send the tokens, add --memo to the end of the command, followed by your Ethereum address wrapped in quotes (e.g. `accumulate tx create myAccount.acme myKey acc://bridge.acme/1-ACME 100 --memo "0xF61872468a3b87F5954DeB3b94Ba47a6f63FgK985"

WARNING: Do not send tokens without including a memo with your address, or your tokens will be lost.

If you would like to display WACME on your Metamask, follow the below steps:

1. In the Metamask window, click on Assets, then click Import tokens

2. Click Add Custom Token

3. Paste this contract address in the Token contract address field: 0xDF4Ef6EE483953fE3B84ABd08C6A060445c01170

4. Finally, click Import tokens to add WACME to your tokens list.

Ensure you have Eth in your Wallet to Sign Transactions on the Mainnet. Use Goerli Eth on the Testnet to Pay for Transactions:

If you are signing transactions with a Ledger Device connected to MetaMask, you will need to enable blind signing.
