Axelar powers the Cross-Chain future
Add interoperability to your dApp
Now, dApps can communicate across chains using Turing-complete calls and messages on a permissionless Proof-of-Stake transport layer.
Universal Asset Transfer
Send your tokens across-chain via any wallet, CEX.
GetDepositAddress(src chain, dst chain, asset, dst address)
How Axelar Works
Axelar goes far beyond sending wrapped assets with General Message Passing, which carries any payload securely cross-chain. Applications can call any function on any connected chain, and deliver a one-click experience for users on any other connected chain. This is a new kind of dApp development that puts users first and lets developers build on the platform best suited to their use case.

Secure cross-chain communication
Cross-chain communication is easy. Secure cross-chain communication is hard. Most solutions today are permissioned multisigs, based on proof-of-authority, which has lost hundreds of millions in security exploits. Axelar network security is based on delegated proof-of-stake: a permissionless, dynamic validator set applies a consensus approach that is similar to the networks Axelar connects.

Build via API
Atop of the Axelar stack sits an application-development layer, used to compose across any number of chains. Developers go cross-chain without new programming languages or added complexity. They focus on building the functionality that differentiates their dApp.
A new generation of decentralized super apps will break down silos and span Web3. Native cross-chain dApps go way beyond bridges.
Create a cross-chain DEX or AMM that connects liquidity from multiple chains.
DAOs can coordinate activity anywhere on Web3.
DeFi: use NFTs as collateral on other chains. Gaming: any asset, anywhere, becomes currency or credential.
Build a 1-click experience: enable users to interact with any asset, any application, from any chain.
