BOND [bETH]
Minting and redeeming bETH is a cross-chain operation, requiring interactions from both the Ethereum and Terra blockchain. The below web interfaces are used to achieve certain types of actions on corresponding blockchains.
For holders of ETH, bETH can be acquired by staking ETH on Lido's bETH WebApp
Alternatively, bETH can be minted by going through stETH. This process requires the steps of:
As for redeeming bETH tokens back to ETH, the following process can be taken:
bETH tokens on Terra accrue rewards in TerraUSD, funded by staking rewards of Ethereum 2.0. Accrued rewards can be claimed with the use of the BOND page of Anchor's WebApp.

Connecting with Lido's web interfaces

1. Navigate to Lido's stETH or bETH WebApp and click [Connect wallet].
2. Select the Ethereum wallet of choice that contains a balance of stETH / bETH and ETH.
3. Wallet connection complete.

Minting bETH by staking ETH

bETH tokens can be minted by submitting ETH to Ethereum-side bETH smart contracts. The process is achievable via Lido's bETH WebApp.
1. Navigate to the To bETH page of Lido's web interface.
2. Click on the dropdown and select Ethereum.
3. Enter the amount of ETH to use in minting bETH and the Terra address to receive the resulting bETH tokens. Click [Convert] to proceed.
4. Metamask should prompt you to sign a transaction that contains the mint operation. Confirm the details presented and click [Confirm] to sign.
5. Mint complete. After the transaction is processed by Shuttle, the specified Terra address will now hold an increased balance of bETH tokens.

Minting stETH by staking ETH

bETH tokens are backed by Lido's stETH tokens. stETH can be created by staking ETH via Lido's stETH smart contracts, which can be accessed through Lido's stETH WebApp.
1. Navigate to the STAKE page of Lido's web interface.
2. Enter the amount of ETH to stake and use in minting stETH. Click [Submit] to proceed.
3. Metamask should prompt you to sign a transaction that contains the stake operation. Confirm the details presented and click [Confirm] to sign.

Converting stETH to bETH

Unlike bLuna, bETH tokens are minted / redeemed through Lido's web interface for bETH.
1. Navigate to the To bETH tab in the Convert page.
2. Enter the amount of stETH to use in minting bETH and click the [Unlock token for conversion] button to confirm. This process authorizes Lido's web interfaces to interact with you stETH tokens.
3. Metamask should prompt you to sign a transaction that contains the authorize operation. Confirm the details presented and click [Confirm] to sign.

5. Metamask should prompt you to sign a transaction that contains the convert operation. Confirm the details presented and enter your password to sign.
6. Conversion complete. After the transaction is processed by Shuttle, the specified Terra address will now hold an increased balance of bETH tokens.

Redeeming bETH to stETH

bETH tokens that reside on the Terra blockchain should be first transferred to Ethereum before they can be redeemed for stETH.
Redemption is a two-step process, first requiring a cross-chain transfer, which is the followed by a redemption to stETH.

1. Transferring bETH from Terra to Ethereum

Shuttle applies a fee of 0.1% (with a minimum fee of 1 UST) for Terra to Ethereum transfers. Transfer requests below a transfer value of 1 UST are ignored.
Cross-chain transfers between Ethereum / Terra can be achieved through Terra Bridge.
1-a. Navigate to Terra Bridge.
1-b. Select bETH as the asset to Transfer. Specify the amount to transfer, as well as the Ethereum address to receive transferred bETH tokens.
1-c. Click [Confirm] to proceed.
1-d. Station Extension should prompt you to sign a transaction that contains the mint operation. Confirm the details presented and enter your password to sign.
1-e. Transfer complete.
After the transaction is processed by Shuttle, the specified Ethereum address should now include a balance of bETH.

2. Converting bETH to stETH

2-a. Navigate to the To stETH tab in the Convert page.
2-b. Enter the amount of bETH to convert to stETH and click the [Transfer] button to proceed.
2-c. Metamask should prompt you to sign a transaction that contains the conversion operation. Confirm the details presented and click [Confirm] to sign.
2-d. Conversion complete.

Swapping stETH for ETH
