Klaytn Information

With the goal of becoming the primary platform for DeFi and NFTs in the Asia market, Klaytn was developed by the team at Ground X, which develops and oversees the blockchain technology of one of Korea’s largest Web 2 companies, Kakao. Klaytn’s Mainnet, Cypress, has been clocked with a high throughput of up to 4,000 transactions per second with one-second block generation intervals and immediate transaction finality.

KLAY is the native utility token of the Klaytn Network, and is used for network transactions similar to ETH on Ethereum, including minting NFTs and yield farming to earn staking rewards.

Klaytn / (KLAY) Current Information

Asset Full Name
Trading Symbol


The KLAY token is the native token of the Klaytn Blockchain and a network of blockchain applications (so-called BApps) that operate across the Klaytn blockchain. Similar to other blockchains. KLAY is used to pay for transaction fees and used for staking for rewards. Additionally, the KLAY token is used as a medium of exchange across the various BApps in the Klaytn ecosystem.

With deep roots with South Korea’ s popular social media giant, KakaoTalk, KLAY is integrated with a number of applications including crypto wallets and a growing list of applications that power the Klayten ecosystem. KLAY is also used to encourage participation through the Klaytn Improvement Reserve (KIR), a reward-based system that utilizes the KLAY token to incentivize commitment to maintaining the growth of the Klaytn ecosystem, namely - submitting proposals, improving user and developer experiences and other activities that support the ecosystem.

Celer’s cross-chain bridge, cBridge, supports the cross-chain bridging of KLAY between multiple chains with the fastest speeds, lowest costs, and most secure transactions available. The full name of this asset is Klaytn token and the ticker of this asset is KLAY.

Astar Network Information

Rebranding itself from Plasma to Astar Network in 2021 with a greater vision to support its ecosystem, Astar Network is a multiple blockchain dApp hub that offers dApps staking, L2 solutions, and a cross virtual machine that supports EVMs.

Astar Network is composed of several major components working together including Polkadot, to facilitate cross chain communication. Astar is considered the Polkadot version of Shiden Network for Kusama. Parachains are also used to connect independent blockchains to the Polkadot ecosystem. Astar also supports crowd loans to help fundraise for a parachain slot within the Polkadot ecosystem.

ASTR token is the native and governance token of the Astar Network. ASTR tokens are used for staking directly on Astar dApps.

ASTAR (ASTR) Current Information

Similar to many popular blockchains, ASTR is the native token for the Astar Network for transaction on-chain fees. The ASTR token has 3 other utilities including (1). Facilitating governance activities like voting and referenda, (2). Staking on different decentralized applications and the network itself, while earning ASTR tokens as rewards, (3) layer 2 networks and applications can deposit ASTR on their respective Layer 1s in creating layer 2 applications that can support omnichain general message and liquidity passing.

Celer’s cross-chain bridge, cBridge, supports the cross-chain bridging of ASTR between multiple chains with the fastest speeds, lowest costs, and most secure transactions available. The full name of this asset is ASTAR and the ticker of this asset is ASTR.

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 Astar Network, and you have USDT on Klaytn and not on Astar Network, you could either deposit more USDT specifically on Astar Network, or you could find a Astar bridge that will bridge your USDT from Klaytn to Astar Network so you do not have to spend more to get additional USDT just because it is on Astar.

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 Klaytn, but see that the interest rate for lending USDC on Astar Network is significantly higher; you can use a cross-chain transfer to move your USDC from Klaytn to Astar Network 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.
