Orion has recently partnered with Cardano to bring it’s on-stop crypto marketplace solution to the Cardano community. Through it’s terminal it allows access to major CEX, DEX + swap pools directly from your wallet.
Lets get right into it …
- Unlock your Ledger and select the Ethereum application.
- Click “Connect Hardware Wallet” and select an account
Your Ledger is now connected to Metamask ready to authorize transactions on the Ethereum Mainnet. This isn’t what we want however, instead we’d like to use the Binance Smart Chain.
After selecting the source asset on the Binance Bridge web page, we click “Add network” and switch to the newly added BSC network.
Then we connect Metamask with the Binance Bridge. In my case, I already have some BNB on this Ledger account, which we’ll need to pay fees on BSC.
Now we send some ADA to the bridge address
After sending those 15 ADA to the given address, we should be seeing a confirmation screen. While we are waiting for those 300 confirmations (which will take a while), we can head over to the Cardano Blockchain Explorer and later to BscScan by clicking the given transaction id
Although we can verify on BscScan that we received the 15 ADA as pegged Cardano Token, it is unfortunately not added to Metamask automatically. Lets do that real quick…
The ADA Token Address is: 0x3ee2200efb3400fabb9aacf31297cbdd1d435d47
We can now head hover to the Orion Terminal and connect the Metamask wallet
In the Dashboard we should now see our 15 ADA which we need to Deposit before we can start trading.
Other than on Ethereum we pay moderate transaction fees (in BNB) on BSC.
We could now sell those ADA on Orion, which according to them will always offer the best prices across a number of CEX, DEX and swap pools.
I of course would not want to do that , but I think it’s really cool that I could with no pesky KYC and those tokens always securely locked by my Ledger.
