What is hashport?

hashport is a public utility infrastructure that empowers users to move representative versions of their digital assets between decentralised networks in a easy to use, reliable, and cost-effective way. Users are then free to explore new DeFi, Gaming, NFT platforms across any hashport compatible network

When will hashport go live?

The Portal is expected to launch in early November 2021

Who can use this service?

Anyone, anywhere in the world holding the assets that hashport supports

What networks are supported by hashport?

hashport will initially connect the Hedera, Ethereum, and Polygon networks. However, hashport will actively add new networks

How much does hashport cost?

Our pricing is clear and simple. There is just one fee for any Portal Execution, a flat 0.5% Service Fee which is charged in the same token that is being ported.


Networks will also charge a fee, the amount and token required will varying depending on their requirements

How secure is hashport?

hashport has passed a rigorous audit from Omniscia on the smart contract functionality. Additionally, hashport continuously performs DDOS tests and security reviews to ensure we adhere to the highest industry standards for security

How long does it take to transfer funds?

The actual speed can vary depending on the networks involved, but given that the Validator Swarm uses the Hedera Consensus Service, transactions are among the fastest in the industry


What are Native Tokens?

Tokens which are original in nature and are not a reproduction of another token

What are Domestic Tokens?

Tokens with which a user is initiating the Porting Execution. The only exception to this is when a representative version of a token is being burnt on the portal to unlock a native network token


For example:

  • A user sends HBARs from Hedera to Ethereum generating HBAR [eth]: HBARs are the Domestic Token & HBAR[eth] the Foreign Token
  • A user then sends HBAR[eth] from Ethereum to Polygon: HBAR[eth] are the Domestic Tokens and HBAR[0x] are the Foreign Tokens
  • A user then sends those HBAR[0x] back to Hedera: In this one specific instance, when porting back to the originating network, HBAR[0x] is a Domestic Token residing on the Polygon network but is also a Foreign Representative Token of the HBAR Native Token residing on Hedera


Native Tokens are ALWAYS Domestic Tokens

What are Foreign Tokens?

“Foreign Token” means the projected representation of a Native Token onto a Foreign Network via hashport

What are Foreign Tokens called?

Foreign Tokens keep the Native Token’s acronym with an abbreviation of the foreign network in [ ]


For example:

  • MATIC that has been ported over to Hedera is called MATIC[hts]
  • HBAR that has been ported over to Ethereum is called HBAR[eth]

What does it mean to "port a token across hashport"?

Porting tokens across hashport is the process of projecting Native Tokens from the originating Domestic Network to the Foreign Network in the form of Foreign Tokens


See our "How it works" page for a step-by-step of what is happening


What is the Validator Swarm?

The Validator Swarm is a decentralised group of organisations from different industries and regions of the world contributing to the operations, governance, and security of hashport

Who are the Validators on hashport?

hashport has assembled a group of industry-leading organisations to act as the Validator Swarm. These partners have proven their reliability, performance and trust in their respective markets over the years, and we are thrilled to have them join hashport. We will be announcing the Validators in the first week of November


Who can I speak with about a potential use case?

The team is always interested to hear about potential use cases for hashport. For all inquiries please contact info@hashport.network

How are tokens added to hashport?

In order to begin the review process, you will need to fill out this application. For questions please contact info@hashport.network

Who should I contact if I have questions or issues?

Please email us on support@hashport.network

My asset is stuck after speeding up my transaction.

Metamask currently does not provide a way for us to query whether a user has triggered the speed up button. As such, there is no direct way to recover funds through hashport. In this case, please email us on support@hashport.network so we can investigate further.

What is the Domestic Network?

Domestic Networks are the DLT network which the Native Tokens that are being locked in the Porting Account in a Porting Execution originate from (e.g. Polygon is the Domestic Network if the End User is porting MATIC to the Hedera network, or MATIC[hts] to the Ethereum network)

What are Foreign Networks?

“Foreign Network” means the destination network that Native Tokens are projected onto via a Porting Execution (e.g. the Polygon network is the Foreign Network when an End User sends ETH to Polygon, and both the Polygon network and Hedera network are Foreign Networks when the End User then sends ETH[0x] to the Hedera network);

What is a Portal Execution?

A Portal Execution is the sequence of events coordinated and approved by the Validator Swarm, resulting in the locking/unlocking or minting/burning of Native Tokens and Foreign Tokens. You can find more information on our How it works page.

Is there a minimum or a maximum value that can be ported over?

Users should ensure they have a large enough token amount to cover all associated network fees and still receive their desired amount of projected tokens on to the foreign network of choice


There is no maximum amount that can be ported across the bridge and the minimum amount depends on the token:

  • HBAR: 150 HBAR
  • ETH: 0.1 ETH

What do I need to do to start porting my assets across?

You will need the following:

  • A Domestic Network Wallet
  • A Foreign Network Wallet
  • Enough tokens to cover the Portal Execution costs and receive the desired amount of projected tokens

How do I setup an EVM wallet?

You can follow the video here to set up a MetaMask (EVM) wallet.

Why do gas fees change?

Gas fees fluctuate based on the volume of transactions that the Ethereum network is experiencing at a specific moment.
