Axelar September update: August Was NFT (& Robot) Month

Axelar Team

There are many upcoming events and opportunities to get connected with the Axelar community, beginning with Friday's Community Call, where we'll welcome a new ecosystem partner, Squid, that is emerging as a key enabler for deFi dApps on Axelr.

The Axelar robot

As the launch of the AXL token approaches, new partners are signing up to build cross-chain. NFT projects in particular are making use of secure General Message Passing, and we launched our own NFT (mint date, Sept. 7) to celebrate the completion of the Axelar Robot, the newest addition to our team. (Humans, visit axelar.network/careers to see other positions on the team.)

Axelar made significant new connections in the Avalanche ecosystem, partnering with several subnets to provide secure interoperability. We also announced integration with NEAR Protocol, via a partnership with Trisolaris, the largest dex on Aurora. Meanwhile, multiple projects are building on Polygon and the Ethereum ecosystem. And, in the Cosmos ecosystem, an integration with Kujira brought increased flows over Axelar network.

For these partners and others we may not even know about yet (Axelar network is permissionless), we’ve continued to ship code and coding tutorials in August. Read the full details, below. And, if you’re interested in building on Axelar:
