Yet Another Testnet Tutorial for a Bridge

16th January, 2024 · 3 minutes read.

Brief introduction

Yet Another Bridge (YAB) is the fastest, cheapest and safest bridge in Starknet. We are currently offering a fast solution to withdraw ETH from Starknet to Ethereum. The “native” solution takes around 5hs to finalize and we are offering a solution under 30s without adding any additional trust-assumptions.

Setup

Yet Another Bridge is only available in Starknet and Ethereum (for now) so you will need to have an Ethereum compatible wallet and a Starknet wallet. We are live on Goerli and Sepolia so you can use whatever you prefer. We recommend Goerli because it’s easier to access and cheaper.

How can I get a Starknet Wallet?

1. Download a Starknet compatible wallet

  • There are two wallet solutions at the moment in Starknet: Argent X and Braavos (we recommend Braavos).
  • You should download one of them and then proceed with the installation process like any normal wallet (creating a password, saving the seed phrase, etc.)

2. Create a Testnet account

  • Starknet has account abstraction natively, therefore every wallet is a smart contract; that means we will have to deploy our wallet after finishing the installation of the wallet plugin.

3. Follow the tutorials

Braavos
  • Change to either Goerli or Sepolia (we recommend Goerli).
Select GoerliClick Create Account
  • Create a new account in Starknet and follow the instructions.
Set Up Standard AccountCheck Wallet Address
  • Deposit Starknet Goerli ETH to your new wallet in order to deploy the new account (and also to test YAB). Alternatively, you can ask for some Goerli ETH in our Telegram group.
Argent X

After following the initial setup included by Argent you should have a Mainnet wallet, but you’ll need a Testnet wallet in order to test YAB (in Argent, the only option is Goerli).

  • Change to either Goerli or Sepolia (we recommend Goerli).
Select GoerliClick Create Account
  • Create a new account in Starknet and follow the instructions.
Set Up Standard AccountCheck Wallet Address
  • Deposit some Goerli Eth from Starknet to your new wallet in order to deploy the new account and also test YAB. You can ask for some Goerli ETH in our Telegram group.
  • Once you receive the Goerli ETH you will have your account deployed, plus some ETH to test, try and familiarize with YAB. Verify for yourself that YAB is the fastest (and safest!) Bridge on Starknet.

Trying YAB on Testnet

How can I access YAB’s implementation on Testnet?

You will need to visit www.yetanotherswap.com/bridge and choose which bridge you want to try. We are currently offering fast withdrawals from Starknet to Ethereum and deposits to Starknet from Ethereum.
