Aurora Information

Aurora is a Layer-2 built on the NEAR Protocol Blockchain. With the goal of being an Ethereum-compatible scaling solution, Aurora allows developers to deploy and operate their decentralized applications and smart contracts in Solidity as well as easily port existing dApps from Ethereum. They can do this while taking advantage of the high-throughput, highly scalable, and future safe platform at a lower transaction costs, so there’s no need to rewrite the codes. As one of the most advanced EVMs on the market with high throughput and low transaction costs, Aurora offers a wide range of features for development ranging from its core SputnikVM, full tool-chain support, all the way to gasless meta transactions. The native Aurora Bridge facilitates the trustless transfer of ETH and ERC20 tokens between Ethereum and Aurora. cBridge is able to support more bridging options beyond the Aurora bridge scope.

Ether / Ethereum (ETH) Current Information

Ether (ETH), also referred to as Ethereum, is the main decentralized cryptocurrency used when dealing with Ethereum Mainnet and its various layer-2s like Arbitrum and Optimism. Simply put, it is the currency of when interacting with Ethereum Mainnet or its layer-2s. Whether you want to simply transfer some ETH between wallets, use ETH as collateral for creating an entirely new token, receive some bridged tokens from another chain like Polygon, or use an application someone had built on Ethereum; anytime you interact with Ethereum you will be required to pay a small fee in ETH.

Our cross-chain bridge, cBridge, supports the cross-chain bridging of Ether (ETH) between multiple chains with the fastest speeds, lowest costs, and most secure transactions available. The full name of this asset is Ether and the ticker of this asset is ETH.

Fantom Information

Fantom, a layer 1 blockchain, is a “high-performance, scalable, EVM-compatible, and secure smart-contract platform.” With over 200 dApps launched on the Fantom mainnet, Fantom’s consensus mechanism, Lachesis, enables the delivery of fast transaction speeds, low transaction costs, and deterministic finality, while remaining permissionless, decentralized, and open-source.

Similar to other Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible platforms, applications that are built using Solidity, the Ethereum programming language, developers can deploy on Fantom with minimal modifications. Fantom envisions a more connected and efficient blockchain ecosystem and is expanding its blockchain technology footprint.

Fantom (FTM) Current Information

FTM is the primary token on the Fantom network, and is used for securing the network (as the main utility token) through staking, for governance, for payments, and for fees. With a total supply of 3.175 billion FTM tokens, FTM is available as native mainnet tokens, as ERC-20 tokens, and as BEP-2 tokens.

Our cross-chain bridge, cBridge, supports the cross-chain bridging of FTM between multiple chains with the fastest speeds, lowest costs, and most secure transactions available. The full name of this asset is Fantom and the ticker of this asset is FTM.

What is a Blockchain/Crypto Bridge?

Blockchain or Crypto bridges work just like the real thing, but instead of connecting physical places together, they are used to connect digital ecosystems together. These bridges can pass both information and assets between the bridged blockchains. We call this a cross-chain transfer.

As an example, if you have a need to use USDT on Fantom, and you have USDT on Aurora and not on Fantom, you could either deposit more USDT specifically on Fantom, or you could find a Fantom bridge that will bridge your USDT from Aurora to Fantom so you do not have to spend more to get additional USDT just because it is on Fantom.

There are also different types of bridging in terms of how the cross-chain transfer is done from a technical standpoint. There is liquidity-based bridging where there are liquidity pools of an asset on both the source and destination blockchains. There is also canonical-based bridging where an asset is locked on the source chain and a new asset that represents that locked asset is created on the destination chain.

Bridging and cross-chain transfers are not limited to just normal assets or fungible tokens either. Bridges can transfer and move non-fungible tokens (NFTs) between chains as well. cBridge supports 2 main models when it comes to NFT bridging, pegged NFT bridging and multi-chain native (MCN) NFT bridging. Pegged NFT bridging is similar to the canonical-based bridging mentioned above. The NFT is locked on the source chain and a new NFT that represents that locked NFT is created, or minted, on the destination chain. In the MCN NFT bridging model, however, a MCN NFT does not have the notion of “origin chain” or "original NFT". When transferring an MCN NFT from chain A to chain B, the only pattern is "Burn-and-Mint" so that there is always only one NFT across all of the chains.

Then there are the different levels of “trust” you can have in a crypto bridge. The two main types are trusted and trustless bridges. Trusted bridges depend on a central system or entity and require you to put your trust in them if you wish to use their bridge. Trustless bridges, like our own cBridge, are completely controlled by and run on automated smart contracts and algorithms that have the same security and stability as the blockchain itself.

Things start to get a more complex from there so if you are interested in learning more about the different types of bridges and the tech behind them, you can read through our documents here:

What are the Benefits of Using a Blockchain/Crypto Bridge?

There are many reasons you may want to use a bridge to do a cross-chain transfer between different blockchains:

Lower transaction fees

You can take advantage of platforms with lower transaction fees and higher speeds when compared to more congested chains, like Ethereum Mainnet. Especially when exploring different decentralized applications (dApps). You can look at alternative chains, like BNB Chain, and bridge your USDC, or whatever other asset you wish to bridge, from Ethereum to BNB Chain. You can then get some of that chain’s utility token and will be able to enjoy the lower transaction fees and higher speeds afforded to chains like BNB Chain.

Take advantage of other dapps and opportunities on different blockchains

If you’ve been providing liquidity for lending out USDC on Aurora, but see that the interest rate for lending USDC on Fantom is significantly higher; you can use a cross-chain transfer to move your USDC from Aurora to Fantom in order to take advantage of that higher interest rate.

Explore other blockchain ecosystems

The Web3 world is growing fast and you now have more options than ever before when it comes to different blockchains and dApps on those chains. There are many different compelling reasons why developers are building on the chains they are and with all of this diversity it makes it difficult to select a chain to invest in. Bridges and cross-chain transfers help solve this issue. By giving you the ability to bridge assets like ETH, USDT, USDC, and BTC to different chains, this opens up your options when it comes to being able to explore alternate L1 chains and the native dapps and services that they provide.
