In a strategic move toward advancing institutional access to decentralized finance (DeFi), Blockdaemon is pleased to announce a groundbreaking partnership with LayerZero Labs. This collaboration brings together LayerZero Labs’ extensive expertise in omnichain interoperability with Blockdaemon’s robust capabilities in blockchain infrastructure, self-custody wallets, and node management.
Unveiling the Synergy: Enhancing DeFi Landscape
Empowering Institutional Access:
The joint effort aspires to significantly enhance institutional access to decentralized finance (DeFi), with each partner contributing unique capabilities to the collaboration. LayerZero Labs’ protocol is a pivotal component, enabling seamless communication between diverse blockchain networks. This capability proves instrumental for interoperability within the blockchain ecosystem, fostering secure, efficient, and reliable transactions across various chains.
LayerZero’s Vital Role in DeFi:
LayerZero’s technology plays a crucial role in broadening the scope and effectiveness of decentralized finance (DeFi) by facilitating secure and efficient transactions across different chains. Its protocol allows diverse blockchain networks to interact securely, thereby amplifying the potential for innovation and expansion in the DeFi space.
Deepening Collaboration: Security and Efficiency at the Core
Blockdaemon as a Decentralized Verifier Network (DVN):
Blockdaemon’s node-as-a-service platform will seamlessly integrate with the LayerZero protocol as a Decentralized Verifier Network (DVN) dedicated to verifying cross-chain messages. This collaborative endeavor aims to deliver a more accessible, secure, and efficient DeFi ecosystem for institutional players.
Gasless Oracle Development:
The partnership introduces several key features, including the development of Blockdaemon’s Gasless Oracle. Blockdaemon, participating as a DVN with a gasless oracle, contributes to verifying and securing messages sent through the LayerZero protocol. This innovation offers application owners a DVN option within their Security Stack, emphasizing Blockdaemon’s commitment to enhancing Web3 interoperability.
Enhancing Security and Control in DeFi Transactions
Integration of LayerZero into Blockdaemon’s MPC-Based Wallet:
A notable aspect of this collaboration is the integration of LayerZero into Blockdaemon’s Multi-Party Computation (MPC) based Wallet. This integration elevates the security and control parameters of DeFi transactions. Blockdaemon’s MPC-based, self-custodial Wallet, renowned for its on-premise or cloud deployment options and robust security protocols, provides institutional investors with a secure environment for managing digital assets.
Efficiency Across Chains:
Through this integration, institutional investors gain the ability to control, stake, and manage their assets across various chains, including Ethereum, Avalanche, Polygon, Fantom, and Optimism, ensuring utmost security and efficiency in their DeFi endeavors.
The strategic alliance between LayerZero Labs and Blockdaemon marks a significant leap forward in the realm of institutional access to decentralized finance. By combining their strengths, the partners aim to revolutionize the DeFi landscape, providing a secure, efficient, and innovative environment for institutional players to engage and thrive in the rapidly evolving blockchain space.
