Connext powers fast, secure bridging between blockchains and rollups for composable, trust minimized value.
Connext Bridge (xPollinate) is a cross-chain liquidity bridge that transfers between EVM-compatible chains and L2 systems. Currently, Connext Bridge connects nine EVM-based chains with each other, then provides a layer 2 token conversion solution to help solve problems such as network congestion or high fees.

Supporting many blockchains: Connext Bridge supports a total of 17 EVM blockchains and 9 different tokens.

Saving your time: From my experience when using this bridge, the time to convert assets between chains is faster than usual. A normal transaction takes no more than 5 minutes.

Connext Bridge has its own Explorer that supports integrated chains.
  • Security — User funds can never be lost or stolen as Connext’s security is equal to the underlying protocol it is bridging. Thus, it reduces the trust assumptions involved.

  • Speed — Connext can execute transactions at high speeds because it utilizes locally verified systems. For instance, in the data set, we found that out of the 50,732 transactions conducted on Connext using Li.Finance’s infrastructure, 91% have taken below 1 hour to be finalized.

  • Connectivity — Connext has good connectivity as it supports a wide range of destination chains.

  • Capital Efficiency — Compared to other solutions, Connext is very capital-efficient considering its significant amount of economic throughput.

  • Statefulness — The trade-off of capital efficiency is statefulness. While Connext can pass around calldata, it is limited in its ability to transfer specific assets and execute cross-chain contract calls. However, it’s important to note that NXTP and Connext still allow for some statefulness.
