Cross-Chain Monthly: July 2023


Welcome to the Cross-Chain Monthly, Wormhole’s monthly update on all news, events, and developments in the Wormhole & Cross-Chain ecosystem. In this edition we'll cover:

  1. Wormhole Gateway: Wormhole enters the Cosmos and plans to launch an appchain
  2. Updates for builders: Automatic Relayers are live, the first Wormhole Fellows are here, Encode Hacker House recap
  3. Powered by Wormhole: tBTC redemptions are live, Pike and Synonym  announce cross-chain primitives powered by Wormhole

Let's get into it!

✨ Introducing Wormhole Gateway

On July 21st, at Osmocon, the Wormhole Foundation announced the launch of Wormhole Gateway -  an application-specific blockchain, powered by the Cosmos SDK.

Gateway’s purpose is to help broaden access (and bring liquidity) to the Cosmos ecosystem while also improving Wormhole’s security and sovereignty. Gateway will enable all of Wormhole’s 23+ connected blockchains across 6 runtimes to be connected to Cosmos via one simple IBC integration. This will enable users to bridge funds to any Cosmos appchain with zero additional bridging fees.

📡 Introducing Automatic Relayers

With the introduction of Wormhole’s Automatic Relayers, developers are now able to send cross-chain messages without needing to develop or manage any off-chain components on their own.

💍 Welcoming the first Wormhole Fellows
