Bridge External Tokens to Agoric

Note: We strongly advise that you use Axelar and Gravity bridge UIs to bridge your assets onto the Agoric chain instead of using IBC transfer functionality on Keplr due to the complexity and risk of user error.

A Note on Supported Assets and Denoms
Once each IBC stable asset is voted in by governance - it's denom (unique identifier) is added so it can interact with Agoric smart contracts.
The denom of each bridged IBC asset differs depending on the path it's taken to arrive on the Agoric chain.
For example, USDC that has been bridged from Ethereum to Agoric via the Axelar or Gravity bridge will have a different denom to USDC_axl or USDC_grv that has been sent from the Axelar/Gravity bridge directly to Osmosis. If you bridge USDC to Osmosis initially, you will need to use Axelar's UI https://satellite.money/ to bridge from Osmosis to Agoric to ensure this asset appears as USDC_axl and it's denom is recognized by the Agoric Smart Wallet and be able to traded in the PSM. If you don't, it will still appear in your Keplr wallet but you will not be able to interact with the Agoric ecosystem.
Follow the pathways above to avoid these compatibility issues.
