Solana-based cross-chain bridge Allbridge raises $2M to support growth
Allbridge, a cross-chain bridge that lets users transfer assets between different blockchain networks, today announced $2 million in funding led by Race Capital. Allbridge offers a simple way to bridge tokenized assets between Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and non-EVM compatible blockchains.
In the seven months since launch, Allbridge has bridged over $4.8B in assets, making it the largest cross-chain asset bridge supporting Solana, Fantom, Avalanche, Celo, Polygon, Ethereum, BSC, Terra, and more.
Founded by Andriy Velykyy and Yuriy Savchenko, who have worked together since 2016 on many different crypto payments integrations and non-custodial multi-chain crypto wallets, Allbridge aims to connect all kinds of layer-1 and layer-2 networks to bring more interoperability to DeFi.
Not only does Allbridge enable users to interact with and transfer assets between EVM-based blockchains like Ethereum, Polygon, and BSC, it also bridges non-EVM compatible blockchains like Solana and Terra.
“We want to be the go-to platform that bridges every popular blockchain and digital asset on the market, enabling billions of token transfers on a daily basis. We’re also working on APIs that will enable developers to build dApps on top of Allbridge. Cross-chain swaps built on Allbridge are the easiest way to exchange any asset between any networks, enabling new functionality like cross-chain lending where users can leverage collateral on one chain in order to receive an asset on another chain.”
