In the 6+ years since its launch, Ethereum — the world’s largest smart contract-compatible Layer 1 blockchain — has consistently faced issues of scalability. Current transaction times and gas fees make Ethereum entirely unsuitable for many use-cases, like blockchain games. The need for a scaling solution is clear yet this solution cannot come at the expense of decentralisation or reduce the security of the Layer 1 blockchain network.

While potential solutions like sharding, sidechains, parachains, and hashgraphs all purport to solve Layer 1 scalability in some way, Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum, has recently been advocating for a particular type…


How to crosschain your assets using WanBridge Web

Step 0: Make sure you have the appropriate wallets.

Before completing decentralised crosschain transactions using WanBridge Web, you need to ensure you have access to the correct wallet(s). You must have wallets for each network involved in the crosschain transaction. In other words, if you are moving $BTC from Bitcoin to Ethereum, you need to use Bitcoin and Ethereum wallets. Similarly, if you are moving $LTC from Wanchain to Moonriver, you need Wanchain- and Moonriver-compatible wallets.

This guide demonstrates a crosschain transaction moving $ETH from Ethereum to Wanchain and uses Metamask. Metamask is a fantastic wallet that grants you access to any EVM-compatible blockchain network.

Wanchain and Avalanche are delighted to announce an integration of Wanchain’s innovative decentralised, non-custodial crosschain infrastructure with Avalanche’s C-chain. Additionally, the two industry leaders are teaming up to further the development of truly decentralised crosschain applications to power the future of DeFi.

This collaboration marries Wanchain’s unique, decentralised, non-custodial crosschain bridges and Avalanche’s unmatched ecosystem of projects and applications. Avalanche and its ecosystem projects will use Wanchain’s crosschain blockchain infrastructure to create new value and use cases for their users by harnessing the power of crosschain technology.

Earlier this year, the Wanchain testnet was successfully integrated with Polkadot’s Westend testnet. Since then, the Wanchain R&D team has been hard at work testing crosschain $WND transactions between Westend, Ethereum, Wanchain and other EVM-compatible network. $WND is the native token of Polkadot’s Westend testnet.

With Wanchain’s Polkadot mainnet integration around the corner, the Wanchain Foundation has decided to launch a Bug Bounty Bonanza (aptly named the Bug Bounty Challenge)! The Bug Bounty Challenge is open to everyone and is focused on finding bugs impacting the Polkadot integration as well as improving the new WanBridge Web. All users are welcome…


The highly anticipated upgrade to WanBridge Web has arrived! This new release introduces a new simple, intuitive UI design and streamlined operations. Additionally, multiple new public chain integrations are lined up to join Wanchain’s industry-leading decentralised crosschain infrastructure that already includes Bitcoin, Ethereum, Wanchain, EOSIO, Binance Smart Chain, Litecoin, XRP Ledger and, most recently, Moonriver.

The new WanBridge Web is also the first with planned mobile support. The mobile-optimised interface will be released soon!

The new WanBridge Web can be accessed here.

Developers on Kusama Will Be Able to Access Wanchain’s Decentralised Blockchain Interoperability Solution to Build Crosschain Applications

Wanchain, the world’s premier decentralised blockchain interoperability solution, and Moonbeam, the Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform in Polkadot, are pleased to announce an integration of Wanchain’s industry-leading decentralised, non-custodial crosschain infrastructure with Moonriver. Moonriver, Moonbeam’s community-led sister network on Kusama, completed its final launch phase last Thursday and is now fully functional. Wanchain is one of the first projects to deploy to Moonriver. In the future, Wanchain will also deploy to Moonbeam and access Moonbeam and Polkadot’s fast-paced growing ecosystems. This integration will strengthen…


Wanchain and CyberFi are pleased to announce that they have partnered to add crosschain compatibility to CyberFi’s $CFi. As of today, users can move their $CFi freely between Ethereum, Wanchain and Binance Smart Chain using Wanchain’s industry-leading decentralised bridges. In other words, $CFi holders can now own and stake $CFi on different chains.

Geralt, CyberFi CEO notes:

“We are extremely excited for this partnership with Wanchain. They are creating a multi-chain superhub so projects like CyberFi can easily bridge to other networks and operate in the cross-chain environment of DeFi today. …


Please note: This guide may be periodically updated to reflect changes in the WanBridge UI.

What is a crosschain $LTC?

With the rapid rise of blockchain technology, there are now thousands of public and private blockchains deployed around the globe. However, these blockchains exist largely in isolation; unable to communicate or exchange information with one another.

Making your $LTC crosschain-compatible allows you to take advantage of DeFi protocols on all blockchains to earn rewards and make your $LTC work for you! Crosschain-compatible $LTC is also called $wanLTC.

How to crosschain your $LTC using WanBridge Web

Step 0: Make sure you have a Wanchain wallet address.

Crosschain-compatible $LTC are stored in Wanchain wallet addresses. Any wallet that supports Wanchain will work. This guide suggests…


As announced in Wanchain’s recent AMA with the Bitsquad, Ben Armstrong, a.k.a. BitBoy Crypto, has launched a Wanchain Storeman node. Wanchain Storeman nodes are responsible for performing and verifying crosschain transactions. They are an integral part of Wanchain’s industry-leading decentralised crosschain architecture.

Delegation means staking your $WAN in someone else’s node. By delegating to the BitBoy Storeman node, the entire Bitsquad can earn rewards together while helping to build the crosschain DeFi world!

Below is a written guide outlining how to delegate your $WAN to the BitBoy Storeman node. A video walkthrough is also available below. …


Wanchain and Epicenter DAO are pleased to announce a strategic partnership leveraging Wanchain’s industry-leading crosschain blockchain infrastructure to enhance the capabilities of the Epicenter ecosystem and its cryptocurrencies. This collaboration marries Wanchain’s unique decentralised, non-custodial crosschain bridges and the Epicenter ecosystem’s triumvirate of digital assets: $EPIC (fungible p2p electronic cash), $EUSD (soft-pegged stable coin) and $ECR (governance token).

Wanchain recently completed the crosschain integration of $ECR, the Epicenter ecosystem’s governance token. This means $ECR is now crosschain compatible and usable on both the Ethereum and Wanchain public blockchains.

Max Freeman, President of Epicenter DAO says:

“We are thrilled to announce…
