We are excited to announce that Celer cBridge now supports bridging to the Astar Network using the Open Canonical Token Standard. The Astar Network community will be able to use cBridge for a fast, low-cost cross-chain bridging experience between Astar Network and 18 other supported blockchains and layer2 networks. Additionally, the underlying Celer Inter-chain Messaging Framework (Celer IM) will enable cross-chain function calling, cross-chain dApp composability, and general message passing on the Astar Network very soon.This means that users from other blockchain ecosystems will be able to use applications built and deployed on Astar Network through Celer IM once it has been fully integrated.
In this initial integration, users can bridge ETH, USDT, USDC, DAI from Ethereum and BNB, BUSD from BSC to Astar Network.
The token addresses for cBridge bridged tokens on Astar Network are:
- USDT: 0x3795C36e7D12A8c252A20C5a7B455f7c57b60283
- USDC: 0x6a2d262D56735DbA19Dd70682B39F6bE9a931D98
- DAI: 0x6De33698e9e9b787e09d3Bd7771ef63557E148bb
- WETH: 0x81ECac0D6Be0550A00FF064a4f9dd2400585FE9c
- BNB: 0x7f27352D5F83Db87a5A3E00f4B07Cc2138D8ee52
- BUSD: 0x4Bf769b05E832FCdc9053fFFBC78Ca889aCb5E1E
We plan to support more tokens on the Astar Network very soon and will integrate with other DeFi ecosystem partners as fast as we can! So stay tuned for more announcements in the near future.
Astar Network (previously known as Plasm) is a dApp hub on Polkadot that supports Ethereum, WebAssembly, and layer 2 solutions like ZK Rollups. Astar aims to be a multi-chain smart contract platform that will support multiple blockchains and virtual machines. Polkadot Relay Chain doesn’t support smart contracts. That’s why it’s important for the ecosystem to have a parachain that enables this for all developers who want to build in the Polkadot ecosystem. Astar is here to provide the best solution for all developers by supporting EVM and making a parachain where EVM and WASM smart contracts can co-exist and communicate with each other.
