To use the bridge will you need to have IQ on EOS in an EOS account with Anchor. If you hold IQ on EOS on an exchange like Binance or Upbit you will need to create an EOS account using a service like EOS Account Creator and then import your account into Anchor. You will also need Ethereum in the Ethereum wallet Metamask to use the bridge and go onto farm IQ you'll probably want to have at least $50-$100 worth of Ethereum for gas fees.

To swap your ERC20 IQ back to IQ on EOS you will use this bridge https://iq.braindao.org/dashboard/bridge - our ETH to EOS guide walks you through the steps.

  • Head to IQ bridge link: https://iq.braindao.org/dashboard/bridge and connect your Anchor wallet and your MetaMask wallet.
