TL;DR — Metis and Layer 3 launch multi-quest initiative, kicked off by Bridging the Gap. Bridge in and receive a limited-edition NFT.

Decentralized finance (DeFi) offers endless possibilities, from trading tokens on decentralized exchanges to earning yields through lending and staking. However, navigating this new world of Web3 can feel daunting for many newcomers.

For that reason, Metis has partnered with Layer 3 in order to bring a new initiative for both platforms’ users: Bridging the Gap. This initiative intends to bridge the gap in web3 education, as well as the gap between Ethereum and the masses.

Bridging the Gap kicks off a new period of growth for the Metis ecosystem, being the first of a series of quests that will be conducted alongside Layer 3. By completing the quest users will receive a limited-edition NFT, reward points, and other incentives.

Bridge the gap by following the guidelines below.

Bridging the Gap

This activity focuses on learning about web3 and bridging assets from Ethereum and Avalanche to Metis in order to receive a commemorative, omnichain NFT.

Step 1: Start by completing a quiz to test your knowledge of Layer 2 and bridging.

Step 2: Next, you’ll bridge at least $25 worth of assets from Ethereum to Metis.
