Some exchanges support an ERC-20 version of the AXL token, which can be easily converted into versions compatible with many other chains.
This tutorial covers how to bridge the EVM-compatible (ERC-20) version of AXL (coded wAXL) to other chains, like Fantom.
If you are holding AXL and first need to convert it to wAXL, click here.

Note: Some exchanges that list AXL will list the ERC-20 version of the token. Most of these are assigning it the ticker wAXL. Other exchanges are listing the native AXL token, which gets no prefix: the ticker is just AXL. (A limited number of exchanges are using other conventions, due to technical limitations -- including WAXL in some cases and, in others, simply AXL to denote the ERC-20 version of AXL. Please read listing information carefully on each exchange, to understand which version it supports.) Throughout this post we will use wAXL to refer to ERC-20 AXL.
It should be an EVM chain.
In this example, we are bridging to Fantom.
Click the [Connect] button with the MetaMask logo. It will change to read [Autofill]. Click it again to populate the address field.
Confirm the address you are sending to and click [Confirm]. Click [Send from MetaMask].
MetaMask will generate a transaction window. Hit [Confirm].
After a few minutes, your transfer is complete. A confirmation screen will appear. To view additional details about the transaction, click [Visit Axelarscan for more information]. (Here is a link to Axelarscan.)
AXL is a chain-agnostic token, meaning it can be represented on various chains. The ERC-20-compatible version of AXL, used on EVM chains, is called wAXL. This tutorial shows how to convert
