Several projects have now released their own versions of a blockchain bridge.
The Syscoin-Ethereum bridge, launched at the start of the year, enables trustless interoperability between Ethereum and Syscoin’s network. Syscoin gives ERC-20 tokens access to an interactive, instant settlement protocol called “zero-confirmation directed acyclic graph” that’s capable of processing over 60,000 transactions per second, verified by an independent auditor.
RSK, the second-layer smart contract platform operating on the Bitcoin blockchain, also released its RSK token bridge early this year. The RSK bridge allows assets to travel between RSK and Ethereum, effectively introducing interoperability between Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Wanchain was one of the earlier projects to enter the interoperability space. In January, it launched the fourth version of its mainnet, introducing the T-Bridge framework, which enables the transfer of data and digital assets between blockchains.
