Ready for Chaos? Swingby’s Chaos-Mainnet Launches on December 28th



Singapore, Singapore, 9th November, 2020, // ChainWire //

Swingby is the “warp-speed” protocol for inter-blockchain swaps. It allows all DeFi users to move assets between blockchains without a trusted party.

Today, Swingby announces its first mainnet network will be released on the 28th of December; it will bridge native Bitcoins onto Ethereum via Wrapped BTC (WBTC).

The initial bridge will enable the most liquid digital asset in the world (Bitcoin), currently valued at a $300 billion market cap, to be moved onto the Ethereum network to tap its $10b DeFi ecosystem.

“This launch will be pivotal to Swingby. After December 28th, Swingby will have a fully operational Chaos-Mainnet network which will be generating a tremendous amount of value to the world of DeFi and bringing in a large number of new users” – Yusaku Senga, CEO

Why is this big news for DeFi?

On December 28th, Swingby will be launching its first Chaos-Mainnet bridge, allowing users to easily move their bitcoins into WBTC on Ethereum without the need for a trusted party. Similarly, the bridge can be used in the opposite direction allowing WBTC-ERC20 tokens to be moved back into native BTCs.

What’s so special about it?

  1. Trustless: Swingby’s Skybridge will be the only way to trustlessly swap BTC into wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC).
  2. Simple to use: The Swingby bridge has been designed to work with standard transaction types removing the need for complex smart contract calls and allowing the bridge to work with any wallet.
  3. Community rewards: Users willing to provide liquidity and governance to the Swingby bridge will be rewarded a share of the fees for each swap processed.

More news is coming!

Leading up to launch on December 28th, the team will be announcing some key partnerships with projects that have helped deliver the Chaos-Mainnet bridge and some additional venues that will be providing liquidity to the SWINGBY token.

To help spread awareness of this event, which will change Swingby forever, the team will be hosting a series of Q&As and giveaways for our superhero community.

Moreover, Yuan Pay crypto robot can be used to fully automate your trading activities.

Swingby plans to launch its Ethereum MainNet on december 28th, bringing Bitcoin to an ecosystem which already has $10b in capital locked up in DeFi contracts.
