Updated over a week ago

Embarking on the journey of Ramp's integration requires a firm grasp of cryptoasset prefixes, which play a pivotal role in simplifying the process. These prefixes uniquely identify tokens across diverse blockchain networks, ensuring a seamless and transparent experience for users.

Understanding Blockchain Networks

Blockchain networks serve as the foundation for cryptoassets. They are the digital ecosystems where these assets are created, moved, and managed. Examples of prominent blockchain networks include Ethereum, Polygon, and Binance Smart Chain. Each network has its distinct characteristics, and these differences can affect the way cryptoassets operate.

The Significance of Asset Ticker Symbol Prefixes

Cryptoassets often share similar names on different blockchain networks, which can lead to confusion. To address this, asset ticker symbol prefixes, such as "MATIC" for Ethereum tokens (MATIC_ETH) on Polygon, come into play. These prefixes serve as an additional identifier to ensure the unique recognition of assets and to prevent mix-ups in the crypto world.

In essence, comprehending and leveraging cryptoasset prefixes within Ramp's integration is the key to a seamless and transparent experience within the blockchain space.

Staying informed about the supported cryptoasset prefixes is vital for a smooth Ramp experience. Please check the available Ramp resources for an up-to-date list of these prefixes.
