Swing, a cross-chain liquidity and bridge protocol, has raised $6 million in a strategic funding round led by Republic Capital at a $60 million valuation.
- Other participants in the round included layer 2 scaling network Celer, Bitcoin.com and Morningstar Ventures, among others.
- Formerly known as Polkaswitch, Swing helps traders and yield farmers move crypto across a number of layer 1 (base layer) and layer 2 (companion network) blockchains, including Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, Binance Smart Chain, Arbitrum and Moonriver.
- The Swing token is a governance token standardized with ERC-20 and native to the Swing network and its decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) of traders, liquidity providers and stakers.
- “Unlocking cross-chain liquidity is essential to the continued growth of the blockchain and crypto industry. Crypto capital will travel across chains to the protocols that are best positioned to serve the multitude of new users entering the space, regardless of what ecosystem they’re currently invested in,” said Swing CEO Viveik Vivekananthan in a statement.
