The Polkadot network’s Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform, Moonbeam, has expanded its interoperability capabilities with the integration of Hyperlane, a platform for developing interchain apps. Developers on Moonbeam now have access to more networks and improved cross-chain messaging thanks to Hyperlane’s integration. This will let developers build fully integrated applications that can securely exchange data across several blockchain networks.
What does the integration mean for developers on Moonbeam?
If you are a developer on Moonbeam, there’s much to look forward to. The platform is a suitable hub for cross-chain developers because of the extensive protocol support it provides for many message-passing protocols. It incorporates the likes of LayerZero, Axelar, Wormhole, Polkadot’s XCM, and Hyperlane.
Hyperlane’s goal is to facilitate communication between blockchains by providing uniform interfaces for programmers, allowing them to cater to users of any blockchain. Hyperlane is an interoperability platform that allows developers to build interchain applications. These are apps that can interact with users on different blockchains and provide them with the same level of service.
Moonbeam developers now have access to a wide variety of unique features and destinations thanks to the integration of Hyperlane. This provides developers with granular control over their app’s security framework. Developers working with Moonbeam have access to seven different networks: Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, Optimism, Arbitrum, BNB, and Celo. Its compatibility with Hyperlene enables the transfer of encrypted messages between rollups, appchains, and heterogeneous monolithic chains with diverse architectures.
Moonbeam provides builders with complete freedom over the architecture of their cross-chain applications. To do that, it provides a number of message standards and formats. To avoid having to move assets between chains, applications can now use contracts that exist on different blockchains to communicate and interact with one another. As a result, Moonbeam DApps serve as hubs through which users can access a wide variety of tokens and blockchains.
