To allow all wallets to enter the Strudel a P2FSH implementation is in the making. Read more here.

Claim vBTC and $TRDL rewards

Once you have entered the Strudel the contract will wait until 6 block confirmations on the Bitcoin Blockchain. The interface provides an update during this process. Once confirmed, you can claim your vBTC and $TRDL rewards.

❗️The longer you wait to claim your tokens, the more it will cost. This is due to the relayer function of the bridge. It relays every Bitcoin block header on Ethereum — the longer it has to go back in history to check the inclusion proof the more it will cost.❗️

Immediate claim: 200.000 gas
2 week claim: 2.000.000 gas
Maximum claim time: 3 weeks!

Start Farming the Flippening

You can put your vBTC and $TRDL into DeFi immediately and support the project by providing liquidity. Strudel makes use of crypto-economic incentives to strengthen the trustless bridge and the protocol. When you put liquidity pool tokens into the Strudel — 🛰 Terra-Farms — you stabilize the peg of BTC to vBTC and earn rewards by taking a short position on BTC dominance and go long on Ethereum. You can read more about that here.

You have now successfully crossed the first one-way, trustless bridge and earn rewards.
