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.
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.
If you receive a message saying your swap has failed when claiming tokens in your Ethereum wallet, this is usually because the transaction has been broadcast, but not mined on Ethereum yet. If this happens, give it some time (15–20 minutes) and then try again — remember that transactions on the Ethereum blockchain take longer than you will have become used to while using the Phantasma mainnet.
Poltergeist wallet: Phantasma — Ethereum Swaps
Getting your Poltergeist Ethereum wallet ready
There are three basic ways to do this:
Use your existing Phantasma wallet and send ETH to your freshly created Ethereum wallet in Poltergeist, or
Import your existing Ethereum wallet holding ETH 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 ETH to the Ethereum wallet that is created
Once you have done this, you are ready to start swapping!
1 — Swapping from Ethereum to Phantasma
Important note: Swapping to and from Ethereum is contingent on the speed of the Ethereum blockchain — you may face delays if it is congested, and it will be far slower than you are used to on the Phantasma blockchain.
You can now see the Phantasma mainnet wallet balance. Click “Claim” next to the pending token balance. If there is no claimable balance displayed yet, that means the Ethereum side transaction is taking longer to confirm. You can monitor this by going to your history tab and viewing the latest transactions
Click “Yes” to release your swapped tokens to your Phantasma mainnet wallet
Your SOUL/KCAL has now arrived in your Phantasma mainnet wallet. Mind that this is dependant on the transaction being confirmed on the Ethereum blockchain and may take some time.
Note: If you receive a message saying your swap has failed when claiming tokens in your Ethereum wallet, this is usually because the transaction has been broadcast, but not mined on Ethereum yet.

With time additional assets will be swappable between Ethereum and Phantasma, such as various ERC20 tokens that can be used on Phantasma, Ethereum based and Phantasma based NFTs and other assets.
