wSIGNA: Bridge to the Binance Smart Chain

Signa on Binance Smart Chain


Binance Smart Chain (BSC) is a blockchain network for running smart contract-based applications, NFTs, and digital assets.  Like Signum’s own smart contract platform, developers can deploy native smart contracts on BSC at significantly lower fees than other platforms like Ethereum.

Cross Chain liquidity, pioneered by Signum with the world’s first atomic cross-chain transfer, is a pillar of decentralized finance.  The Integration of Signum with other networks such as Binance Smart Chain significantly increases Signum’s utility and prepares for other assets to find a home on the Signum Network.

Asset wrapping


Asset wrapping allows an asset from one network to exist on and interact with another.  Using BTDEX and smart contracts, SIGNA can be converted to wSigna(BEP-20).  wSigna is the 1:1 representation of Signa on BSC.  Signa wrapped in wSigna remains locked in a smart contract on the Signum Network and can be converted back at any time.

Utility


Cross-chain integration of Signa makes it available on BSC on the same basis as any BSC BEP-20 token.  For example, you can stake it on Pancakeswap, trade it, or even add it to liquidity pools to earn pool fees.

With wSIGNA BEP-20 tokens, you can participate in a growing number of applications that use Binance Smart Chain.  For example, it can be easily exchanged for BNB when needed.


BTDEX is the primary tool for wrapping Signa onto the Binance Smart Chain as wSigna.

 

How to wrap Signa to BSC or unwrap wSigna to the Signum Network using BTDEX


Configure a BSC-compatible wallet.


If you do not already have a wallet that supports the Binance Smart Chain, install Binance Wallet, Trust Wallet, Meta Mask, or another compatible browser extension.  Binance Wallet is used in this example.

Binance Wallet is a web extension found in the Google Chrome Store.  Start with https://www.binance.com/en/wallet-direct, click on ‘install extension wallet’, ‘add to Chrome’, and then ‘add extension’.

  • Open and choose ‘Use existing wallet’ or « Create wallet ».  Follow the prompts to create a new wallet or import an existing wallet.
  • Add the wSigna token as an asset by clicking the ‘+’ under the Asset tab, ‘Custom Asset’ in the upper right-hand corner, and entering the following token address in the Contract Address field:  0x7b0e7e40ee4672599f7095d1ddd730b0805195ba.   When the wSigna token appears, click ‘Add Asset’.

Install the BTDEX software


BTDEX contains the functionality for wrapping and unwrapping Signa.  It can also serve as your primary wallet for Signa, but not all wallet functions are included.  Other wallet functions are available in Signum-Node or Phoenix.

Open BTDEX and follow the prompts to create a new Signum account or import an existing account.

  • On the « Contracts » tab, select the wSigna market.
  • On the « Accounts » tab, select the wSigna market, enter the wSigna address in the wSigna address field, and click « OK ».  The address can be found in your Binance wallet by clicking on the wSigna token (under Assets) and « Receive ».  Be sure that ‘Binance Smart Chain Network’ is selected at the top.  Binance Smart Chain Network and Binance Network are not the same.

BTDEX Procedures


The easiest and fastest way to wrap Signa or unwrap wSigna is by accepting contracts that already exist on the order book.  If the quantities offered do not work for you, you can create your own contract which will be accepted by another party or the Signum Network’s swapping service within 24 hours.

Existing Contracts


To wrap Signa, select a contract from the green side of the order book.  Accept the terms and conditions, enter your PIN, and click ‘OK’.  This locks your payment and security deposit in a smart contract pending receipt of the wSigna.  Accepted contracts must complete within 48 hours.  The other party has the first 24 hours to transfer the correct amount of wSigna.  If they do not, you can claim their security deposit.  When the wSigna is received, you have the remainder of the 48-hours to confirm receipt in BTDEX so that payment can be released to the other party and your security deposit can be returned.  If you do not make the required confirmation and the other party has to open a claim for their payment to be released, they will also receive your security deposit.

To unwrap wSigna, select a contract from the red side of the order book.  Accept the terms and conditions, enter your PIN, and click ‘OK’.  This locks your security deposit in a smart contract.  Accepted contracts must complete within 48 hours.  You will have 2 hours to transfer the correct amount of wSigna.  If you do not, you will lose your security deposit.  When the other party confirms receipt, the payment held in the smart contract and your security deposit will be released.  If the other party does not confirm receipt of the wSigna within the 48-hours, open a claim to have the payment held in the smart contract released.  Your security deposit will be returned, and you will also receive the other party’s security deposit.

New Contracts
