Hello! It sounds like you’re trying to swap BTC on the Bitcoin network for USDC on another network. That is not possible unless using a bridge or cross-chain app. You can learn more here: https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/14601241579021-Understanding-Crypto-Networks-and-Addresses

Hello Evan

And thank you for answer. It makes sense now.

I know that Metamask is offering such bridges in their wallet.

Why not Brave wallet?

When is coming?

Do I have to send some BTC to my Metamask wallet to swap BTC to USDC? I hope not.

And I hope that Brave wallet will offer such bridges soon on its platform.
