How do I bridge BEP3 assets to Kava Cosmos?

Users can interact with the Kava Chain and Binance Smart Chain using Cosmos-compatible and EVM-compatible wallets. However, we use Keplr and MetaMask wallets for step-by-step tutorial purposes.

CRUCIAL STEP: Before moving your BEP3 assets to the Kava Cosmos, you must first bridge them to Kava EVM.

BEP3 assets will be bridged to the Kava EVM through Squid Router (Make sure you are on the V2 (Beta) page). However, users will need to bridge BUSD to Kava EVM from Ethereum as the pathway for BUSD between Kava EVM and Binance Smart chain isn't supported. Please note that this walkthrough tutorial applies to any BEP3 assets.
