LayerZero Unveils Blockchain Bridge Aptos for Transfering ETH, USDC & USDT and Optimism
LayerZero Labs, an on-chain client machine standard, has introduced Aptos Bridge, a blockchain bridge. The company claims that the bridge will let customers transfer Ethereum, USDC, and USDT from Ethereum, Polygon, BNB Chain, Avalanche, and Optimism to Aptos.
The programmers noted that not each of the bridge’s features would be accessible upon the update’s maiden implementation.
“Aptos starting as a completely fresh new environment implies that several functionality that users are used to utilizing on existing chains are not instantly accessible; this includes standard tools, libraries, and native resources provided by organizations such as Circle (USDC) and Tether (USDT).”
Initial activities on the bridge will be restricted in terms of rate ($1 million outward every 24 hours per route) and duration (three days). “There will be no rate restriction and no transfer latency for incoming transfers to Aptos,” the business noted. LayerZero has also launched a bug incentive program that it would provide to “white hackers” (hackers that willingly analyze software for possible faults) should they discover a flaw in the latest bridge. The prize will range from $2 million to $15 million, depending on the sort of flaw. Currently, LayerZero has spent more than $4 million for audits and given $1 million to white hackers.
LayerZero is a mechanism for interoperability that links blockchains. In 2021, it was supported by Binance Labs, which spearheaded a $6 million fundraising round, and Multichain Capital. In addition to Defiance, Robot Ventures, Spartan, Protocol Ventures, Gen Block Capital, and many others, the lineup of investors also comprises Robot Ventures, Spartan, Protocol Ventures, and Gen Block Capital.
