Connext Bridge (Previously xPollinate)Go to the website
Brief description of the bridge
Connext is the interoperability protocol of L2 Ethereum. You can use Connext to send transactions of value or calldata across chains and/or rollups. Unlike most other interoperability systems, Connext enables this without introducing any new trust assumptions or external validators. Note that the current version of Connext cannot be used pass arbitrary event data between chains (i.e. prove to chain B that something occurred on chain A) as this cannot be done in a trust-minimized way in the evm except by incurring the 1-week exit window of existing rollup bridges. This means that cases like migrating a token from chain A to chain B are not supported - you can instead only swap/transact over liquidity that already exists on the chain.
What is Binance Smart Chain?
BSC is a dual-chain architecture that will empower users to build their decentralized apps and digital assets on one blockchain and take advantage of the fast trading to exchange on the other.https://www.binance.com/
What is Polygon?
Polygon is actually a layer-2 scaling solution whose main objective is to convey mass adaptation to the Ethereum platform. Polygon brings Layer-2 scalability to Ethereum with its multi-chain ecosystem. It drastically improves the overall efficiency and workings of the Matic network. The main aim is to create more and more solutions to scalability.https://polygon.technology/
What is Arbitrum?
Arbitrum is a type of technology known as an optimistic rollup. It allows Ethereum smart contracts to scale by passing messages between smart contracts on the Ethereum main chain and those on the Arbitrum second layer chain. Much of the transaction processing is completed on the second layer and the results of this are recorded on the main chain drastically improving speed and efficiency.https://arbitrum.io/
What is Avalanche?
Avalanche is the fastest smart contracts platform in the blockchain industry, as measured by time-to-finality, and has the most validators securing its activity of any proof-of-stake protocol. Also is an open-source platform for launching decentralized applications and enterprise blockchain deployments in one interoperable, highly scalable ecosystem. Avalanche is the first decentralized smart contracts platform built for the scale of global finance, with near-instant transaction finality. Ethereum developers can quickly build on Avalanche as Solidity works out-of-the-box.https://www.avax.network/
What is Moonriver?
Moonriver is a companion network to Moonbeam and provides a permanently incentivized canary network. New code ships to Moonriver first, where it can be tested and verified under real economic conditions. Once proven, the same code ships to Moonbeam on Polkadot.https://moonbeam.network/networks/moonriver/
What is Optimism?
Optimistic Ethereum is an EVM compatible Optimistic Rollup chain. It's designed to be fast, simple, and secure. The Optimistic Ethereum network lets you send transactions, similar to Ethereum, but with two important advantages: *Near-instant transaction finality. You know almost immediately if your transaction took place or not. *Much lower transaction fees. Typically between a 1% and 10% of of the cost on L1. *Decentralization. All transactions are posted to L1 Ethereum, inheriting the strong security guarantees of Ethereumhttps://www.optimism.io/
What is Fantom?
Fantom is a high-performance, scalable, and secure smart-contract platform. It is designed to overcome the limitations of previous generation blockchain platforms. Fantom is permissionless, decentralized, and open-source. Lachesis, its revolutionary aBFT consensus mechanism, allows Fantom to be much faster and cheaper than older technologies, yet extremely secure.https://fantom.foundation/
What is Gnosis Chain?
The Gnosis Chain is a stable payments EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) blockchain designed for fast and inexpensive transactions. The chain uses a unique dual-token model; xDai is a stable token used for transactions, payments, and fees, and STAKE is a governance token used to support the underlying POSDAO Proof-of-Stake consensus.https://www.xdaichain.com/
What is Ethereum?
Ethereum is both a blockchain network, an application platform, and a full-fledged programming language. The goal of the project is to create and publish distributed applications that do not require third party trust.https://ethereum.org/en/
