Unwrapping Assets

When it comes to unwrapping assets in the Milkomeda Cardano Sidechain (C1) ecosystem, there are two main options: using the Flint Wallet or the Milkomeda Cardano Unwrap Bridge. In this tutorial, we'll guide you through both options so you can choose the one that works best for you.

Flint Wallet

To perform the asset unwrapping, use the SEND function on the wallet screen.

Flint Homescreen

To begin, toggle on the Milkomeda Mode (Beta) and choose Milkomeda C1 asset from the token select dropdown. Next, input the recipient's Cardano address in the designated box, followed by the desired amount. Lastly, click on the CONTINUE button to proceed to the confirmation screen.

Flint Input

The confirmation screen provides an opportunity to review critical details, including the "from" and "to" addresses, as well as the network fee. It's worth noting that the total fee comprises both the base fee and Milkomeda fee since the transaction occurs on both the Milkomeda C1 chain and Cardano. Take a moment to double-check the information before proceeding.

Confirm Transaction

After entering the wallet spending password and pressing the SEND button, the transaction(s) will be sent.

Transaction Submitted

If you need more information, there are two ways to access it. You can follow the link on the confirmation screen to view the transaction on Blockscount explorer or navigate to the "Activity" section in the footer to find the transaction on the list. Clicking on the transaction will provide two links, one for viewing the transaction on the Milkomeda chain explorer and the other for Cardano.
