OHM is an ERC20 token, hence you’ll need to deposit to an ERC20 address.
Go to ‘Wallet’ in Gate.io and select ‘Withdraw’
After obtaining the OHM deposit address, you can go to the Wallet tab on Gate.io.
After that, select ‘Withdraw‘.
Search for OHM as the cryptocurrency you wish to withdraw
You will see all of the cryptocurrencies that you can withdraw from your Gate.io wallet, and you can search for OHM.
Paste the OHM ERC20 address from Metamask to Gate.io
This will bring you to the withdrawal page on Gate.io, where you can enter a few details, such as:
- The address that you’ll be depositing OHM to
- The amount of OHM that you want to send
Gate.io currently only supports ERC20 withdrawals of OHM, hence you’ll need to ensure that you are copying an ERC20 deposit address from Metamask.
Confirm the withdrawal and receive OHM on Metamask
After confirming the withdrawal, you should receive OHM in your Metamask wallet.
The transfer may take a while since the Ethereum network is quite congested.
What are the fees for withdrawing OHM from Gate.io?
Gate.io currently charges 0.062 OHM to withdraw to an ERC20 deposit address.
In this way, you do save quite a bit in fees!
Gate.io is one of the few cryptocurrency exchanges that support OHM. If you want to send OHM to your Metamask wallet, you will need to do so via the ERC20 network.
The fees may be quite high on the ERC20 network, so it would be best to transfer a large amount of OHM when you are performing any transfer.
After adding and receiving your tokens to your Metamask wallet, you can consider using decentralised exchange (DEX) aggregators, including:
Since both platforms are DeFi aggregators, they will ensure that you will get the best rates for any swaps that you make!
