How to Cross-Chain Swap on Drift
This step-by-step guide will take you through how to perform your first cross-chain swap on Drift today. On Drift, all cross-chain swaps automatically include gas drop off (0.05 SOL) for new Solana wallets to help you get you started. You can always adjust this in the settings.
1) Visit app.drift.trade and head to the Deposit/Withdraw modal that can be found at the top-right corner of your screen
2) From this screen, navigate to “Swap or bridge to deposit funds from another chain” at the bottom. This will open up the interface to perform your first swap.
3) Here you will be prompted with which bridge you’d like to use! As a note, you’ll need SOL in your wallet for transaction fees and collateral in your Drift Account for trades

From here you’ll be able to directly swap from EVM chains such as Ethereum, BSC and Arbitrum into native USDC or SOL on Solana. Simply connect your wallet, select the chain and asset you’d like to swap to/for and select your destination wallet.
Once you've input your details, authorize the transaction to complete the cross-chain swap.
4.2) Wormhole Bridge
Bridge USDC from Ethereum to Solana. Bridged USDCet will then need to be swapped for native USDC. After you've bridged your assets, you can swap with Jupiter for native USDC and deposit it onto Drift as collateral.
