Welcome to the Phantasma cross chain asset swapping tutorials. These tutorials will guide you step by step through every detail necessary to ensure a successful cross chain asset swap using our wallets Poltergeist and Ecto.
Please note: All cross-chain swaps between Phantasma and other blockchains are currently suspended pending completion of multiple security audits.
Please stay tuned to our Telegram community and announcements channel to catch the latest news on when cross-chain swaps will reopen.
Mind that if you do not have a Phantasma wallet or wallet address yet, we recommend starting out by downloading the wallet of your choice — Poltergeist for a standalone desktop wallet application that’s also available for Android, or our browser extension wallet Ecto which has that familiar Metamask feeling for Ethereum users. For a quick guide on wallet creation, backing up private keys and other basic things, check out the Poltergeist Basics tutorial or the Ecto Basics tutorial.

Before we start — note: 12 block confirmations necessary
If you do not see your swap from BSC to Phantasma in your Phantasma “P…” wallet right away, keep in mind that since BSC is using the Ethereum Virtual Machine, 12 block confirmations are required on BSC before a transaction is considered final (and the swap appears in your wallet to be claimed).
Poltergeist wallet: Phantasma — Binance Smart Chain Swaps
Getting your Poltergeist BSC wallet ready
There are three basic ways to do this:
- Use your existing Phantasma wallet and send BNB to your freshly created BSC wallet in Poltergeist, or
- Import your existing BSC wallet holding BNB into Poltergeist using your private key. This will give you corresponding Phantasma and NEO addresses using the same private key, or
- Create a new wallet in Poltergeist and send BNB to the BSC wallet that is created
Once you have done this, you are ready to start swapping!
