Questions received last month:

How do I transfer my AXS and SLP tokens to the Ronin sidechain?
As Axie Infinity reached new peaks in user activity, we've also reached new peaks on support tickets about bridging to its sidechain. You need to interact with the Ronin bridge, not transfer to its contract address.
