The Blockchain Bridge That You Dream About

Duration: 00:07:29

Speaker: Martin Derka

Type: Lightning Talk


Event: Devcon 6

Date: Oct 2022

In the times where scalability of blockchains depends on multiple layers, and when interoperability holds for an essential blockchain feature, bridges become critical infrastructure parts. They are meant to hold liquidity, asked to operate quickly, but they cannot benefit from the security guarantees of an on-chain application, because they inherently contain off-chain components. In this talk, we discuss the properties of a bridge that is secure and meets all the needs for it to be useful.
