  • Want to dive a little deeper into the benefits of CCTP, or Cross-Chain Transfer Protocol? Check out this talk Circle dev relations & ecosystem manager @corey__cooper gave at the Encode hackathon (YouTube)
  • Sending $USDC via CCTP to and from Optimism is now live! (tweet)

  • Multi-chain lending markets have a few limitations which have led to siloed markets, security issues, & a not-so-great user experience. @terrycflam from @pikefinance explains Pike's solution in his talk at the Encode hackathon (YouTube)
  • It's time! Token bridging to @cosmos via Wormhole Gateway is now live! (tweet)
