Axelar delivers secure cross-chain communication for Web3. As a universal overlay network, Axelar supports general message passing and composability of decentralised programs via a proof-of-stake transport layer. Developer tools and APIs make it easy for both protocol and application developers to integrate interoperability. See our cross-chain sandbox for a taste of the developer experience.
Axelar has raised capital from top-tier investors, including Binance, Coinbase Ventures, Dragonfly Capital, and Polychain Capital. Partners include major proof-of-stake blockchain s, such as Avalanche, Cosmos, Ethereum, and Polkadot. Axelar’s co-founders are founding team members of Algorand and award-winning graduates of MIT, where they received notable recognition as part of their graduate studies.
The Axelar network mainnet has been live since January, 2022. It supports cross-chain asset transfers across over 30 networks, with more networks and assets added regularly.
Axelar has developed a sample cross-chain asset transfer application called , which provides a simple, efficient user experience to transfer assets between chains. Other applications building multichain experiences on Axelar include cross-chain NFT marketplaces, liquidity routers (like ), yield aggregators, privacy services and gaming guilds.
