Swing Integrates Multichain to Supercharge Cross-Chain Liquidity for Developers
Swing has added Multichain to its growing list of Bridges, giving cross-chain developers access to liquidity on demand.
Swing is a powerful tool that can imbue even the simplest of apps with superpowers. In a couple of lines of code, it connects decentralized applications to a universe of cross-chain liquidity, unlocking a host of possibilities for creative developers.
As a result, the only limitations are the dev’s imagination – and the quality of the liquidity sources Swing can access. In the case of the former, we’ve never doubted the talents of blockchain devs, whose coding chops and out-the-box thinking are often of the highest order. And in the case of the latter, the quality and quantity of the liquidity Swing can summon on cue is increasing exponentially.
Particularly now that Swing has integrated Multichain (formerly AnySwap), whose cross-chain protocol is linked to the Swing API, SDK, and Widget. For developers and users of cross-chain applications, this is kind of a big deal.
Why We Go Cross-Chain?
In the omni-chain era, developers of cross-chain dApps have an abundance of networks and protocols to choose from. But they can’t integrate them all: doing so would be wildly impractical and the maintenance costs would become exponential. At least that’s the way it had to be done until the emergence of Swing.
Now, dApp developers can build with whatever network, protocol, and programming language they feel most comfortable with and the liquidity can come to them. That’s because Swing’s API, SDK, and Widget can channel liquidity sources to more than 24 supported networks courtesy of the dozens of token-swapping protocols it connects to.
Within this paradigm, the only limitations are the chains and DEXes, aggregators, and bridges Swing’s smart contracts can interact with. Right now, that’s an extremely long list and it’s growing longer by the day. While all of the protocols integrated with Swing are of the highest caliber, we’re particularly excited to have added the name of Multichain to the list.
Their cross-chain tech forms a major artery that routes much of the liquidity flowing through the DeFi landscape. Crucially, it’s not just EVM chains that Multichain links – it also intersects with non-EVM chains, something which is relatively rare within the pantheon of blockchain bridges.
How big is Multichain? Bigger than you thought. The number of chains it supports is dizzying, including networks you’ve probably never heard of. That’s a good thing by the way: in the omni-chain era, it stands to reason there’ll be up-and-coming chains that have yet to gain a foothold. In the interim, they still require access to bridging services to bring liquidity to where it’s needed.
The last time we checked, Multichain supported 88 blockchain networks, more than 3,500 different tokens, and had accrued more than $100 billion in cross-chain volume.
Multichain has a reputation for getting there first, providing the bridging and token-swapping infrastructure when other protocols have yet to catch on. Feeding that unrivaled cross-chain liquidity into the Swing Ecosystem wasn’t just desirable: it was essential. Now it’s done, the value proposition of the Swing has significantly increased. In turn, the power of cross-chain applications built using it has been turbocharged.
Many cogs connect Swing’s liquidity sources, but Multichain is a major one. With its bridge-hopping, chain-crossing, liquidity pool-deepening protocol onstream, Swing and every app that integrates it is significantly stronger.
