Axelar has entered into a new partnership with Keplr, the largest Cosmos interchain wallet. The partnership will integrate the Keplr wallet into the Axelar network to unlock liquidity within the Cosmos ecosystem and beyond. Kepler allows users to manage their assets, access decentralized applications (dApps) and stake tokens from Secret Network, Cosmos Hub, Kava and many more, all from one place.
Through this integration, users will be able to transact, stake, and participate in the Axelar network governance via the Keplr web and mobile wallets. Furthermore, the partnership will also allow assets to be transferred from the Axelar network to other Cosmos chains and back via IBC, supported by both the Axelar network and Keplr wallet.
“Keplr is the go-to wallet for Cosmos users, and we are excited for them to partner with the Axelar network and support the ecosystem. This integration is a big milestone for the multi-chain future and to connect Cosmos networks with other external ecosystems”, said Sergey Gorbunov, Co-Founder and CEO of Axelar.
Given that the Axelar network will interconnect with other chains, users will be able to move assets from all Cosmos chains to other ecosystems connected through the Axelar network, such as EVM chains like Ethereum, Avalanche, Moonbeam, and others. This will not only increase liquidity for users but will also expand the Keplr’s network of dApps and their utility.
“This latest integration with Axelar network is satisfying a growing demand for cross-chain asset movement support across the industry,” says Josh Lee, co-founder of Keplr wallet. “Axelar network will lead the charge in bringing highly in-demand assets such as Bitcoin to the Interchain, and further catalyze IBC adoption.”
The partnership will also allow assets from external blockchains such as Bitcoin and Avalanche to be available in the Cosmos ecosystem through the Axelar network. This presents a huge opportunity to expand the Cosmos ecosystem, and will allow both users and developers to access tokens that best suit their requirements through their wallet and in their dApps.

Axelar is building a decentralized network and tools that connect users, assets, and dApp across multiple blockchain ecosystems. The network empowers developers to build on the best platform for their needs while leveraging the Axelar stack to unlock cross-chain composability and liquidity. Axelar Network consists of a protocol suite, tools, and APIs, designed to break down the barriers to cross-chain communication. Powered by a decentralized open network of validators, anyone can join the network, use it and build on it. The Axelar Network provides a uniform solution to cross-chain communication, allowing dApps to integrate with the full blockchain ecosystem. Developed by the founding team members of Algorand and their team, Axelar’s co-founders are award-winning graduates of MIT, where they received notable recognition as part of their graduate studies.
