XSwap Integrates Chainlink CCIP To Unlock Cross-Chain Swaps

XSwap Integrates Chainlink CCIP To Unlock Cross-Chain Swaps

We’re excited to announce that XSwap has integrated Chainlink CCIP—the industry standard for secure cross-chain interoperability—across the Arbitrum, Avalanche, Base, BNB Chain, Ethereum, Optimism, and Polygon mainnets. We’re leveraging CCIP’s Simplified Token Transfer capabilities to help enable the secure cross-chain transfer of LINK.

We selected CCIP as our preferred interoperability solution because Chainlink has the most proven track record of maintaining the highest standard of security and reliability in the Web3 industry. Furthermore, CCIP is backed by the Risk Management Network—a separate, independent network that continually monitors and verifies cross-chain operations for suspicious activity. This additional layer of security is particularly important given historical industry exploits and the billions in user funds lost due to insecure and unreliable cross-chain infrastructure.

XSwap’s mission is to support the onchain economy with secure, reliable, and seamless cross-chain payments. We aim to enable payments between various EVM-based blockchains and become the premier cross-chain payment solution. 

In order to help secure our cross-chain asset transfers, we needed access to a highly secure and reliable interoperability solution. After reviewing various solutions, we integrated Chainlink CCIP because it provides a multitude of important benefits and features, such as:

  • Defense-in-depth security — CCIP’s consensus and transport layer is powered by Chainlink decentralized oracle networks, which have already secured tens of billions of dollars for smart contracts and enabled over $8 trillion in onchain transaction value. CCIP also includes additional layers of protection via the ARM Network, transfer rate limits, and the Smart Execution of transactions.
  • Simplified token transfers — Seamlessly scale your user base and benefit from enhanced token composability by securely transferring tokens across chains in a fraction of the time it would take to build a custom solution. In addition to providing fully audited token pool smart contracts, CCIP token transfers have additional security features, such as rate limits that allow you to cap the value transferred over a given time interval.
  • Effortless integration and scalability — CCIP eliminates the need to write custom code when building chain-specific integrations. Instead, we can use a single interface and integrate CCIP with a smart contract on a single blockchain to access all other supported blockchains. Tokens transferred through CCIP are also highly composable, enabling ecosystem partners to easily transfer and build new capabilities around them.
  • Flexible and programmable — CCIP messages are programmable, meaning token transfers and smart contract calls can be one atomic transaction. CCIP also supports multiple token handling mechanisms on source and destination chains (e.g., mint and burn and lock and unlock) to open up a wider range of use cases.
  • Future-proof — CCIP is built to support continuous updates, such as the integration of new blockchains (including non-EVM chains), the introduction of advanced functionalities, and the addition of other defense-in-depth approaches to security. Thus, an integration with CCIP eliminates future switching costs should new cross-chain functionalities be needed.

“Chainlink CCIP provides unparalleled security and reliability for cross-chain asset transfers, which is why we’re excited to integrate CCIP into XSwap. Underpinned by CCIP, we aim to become the premier cross-chain payments protocol.”  –Arthur, co-founder of XSwap
