CEX Routes to Avalanche
The native tokens used on the Avalanche C-Chain are ARC-20 assets. To make transactions and interact with contracts on the Avalanche Network, you'll need to pay for gas fees, which come in the form of AVAX. You will also need the ARC-20 version of any token you want to stake or provide liquidity with on Avalanche.
The most popular route to go about getting ARC-20 tokens is by transferring funds from a CEX to AVAX and withdrawing in the C-Chain (where DeFi takes place on Avalanche).
You can also use the AB Bridge to seamlessly convert your ERC-20 tokens for ARC-20s. Check out our AB Bridge Guide if you're migrating tokens from Ethereum.
