Make any token natively multichain

Native Token Transfers (NTT) framework enables seamless creation and transfer of multichain tokens, maintaining ownership and contract upgradability across blockchains.

Unified multichain user experience

Tokens maintain their inherent properties on each chain, resulting in a natively authentic multichain token without altering their intrinsic characteristics.

No need for liquidity pools

NTT enables token transfers without the need for liquidity pools, eliminating associated fees, slippage, or MEV risk.

Integrator flexibility

Maintain ownership, upgrade authority, and customizability of a token. Integrate with any token contract, standard, or protocol governance processes.

Broad composability

NTT is an open-source, extensible token transfer framework built to be adopted widely across the ecosystem to build unique, customized functionality.

Multichain synchronized token

Wormhole Guardian infrastructure and Global Accountant enable multichain token balance integrity checks, giving access to a global, synchronized token state.
