Deep dive into BIFROST Ecosystem

The current state and future plans for expanding the ecosystem

About BIFROST

BIFROST was founded in 2017 by two professors and another founder with extensive experience in finance and computer science, Dohyun Pak, Jonghyup Lee, and Changhyun Yoo with the goal of developing a multichain middleware platform that enables developers to create Decentralized Apps (DApps) on top of multiple protocols.

BIFROST ecosystem today

BIFROST ecosystem in its current state represents a set of products, all of which are focused on enhancing cross-chain user experience but are not necessarily connected to each other. BIFROST Network will be a link between existing products and the platform for developers to build the next generation of cross-chain applications.

BiFi

BiFi is a lending and borrowing platform developed by the BIFROST team in 2020. Focusing on interoperability, BiFi is deployed on Ethereum mainnet, Avalanche, BNB Chain, and Klaytn. Furthermore, BiFi was among the first DeFi protocols to integrate native BTC. Currently, BiFi has more than $17 million of TVL and offers above-average yield for investors across multiple markets. Bifi has its own token $BIFI.

Biport Wallet

Biport wallet is a natively cross-chain Web-3 wallet. With extension already available in Chrome Store, it provides users with frictionless chain-agnostic user experience in five networks — Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, Klaytn, and Avalanche, as well as BIFROST Network testnet. With just one recovery phrase, users can access these chains, all the assets on apps on top of them, without a need of changing networks or wallets manually. A mobile app is currently in the beta testing and will soon become available for everyone.

ChainRunner Q

ChainRunner Q is a comprehensive DeFi aggregator that interconnects DeFi applications on different chains. The goal of ChainRunner Q is to make it easier to use DeFi, eliminate the need for browsing over different websites and apps, and have everything users need in one place. Chainrunner Q currently supports spot exchanges and lending markets, namely Compound, Aave V2, BiFi, BiFi X, and SushiSwap. By using aggregator and not the official interface of these apps, users will always benefit from the best possible prices (on AMMs) or rates (in lending protocols), as well as reduced gas fees due to gas optimization built in the contracts.

BiFi X & Owly

Both BiFi and Owly are tools for DeFi portfolio management. While BiFi X provides users with leveraged yield farming and margin trading with up to 4x leverage, Owly offers curated trading strategies. With Owly, anyone can build out a winning trading strategy and a complex portfolio with minimized trading steps, in-app swaps, and asset management functionality.

BIFROST Ecosystem post-mainnet launch

BIFROST Network

BIFROST Network is an EVM-compatible layer one blockchain based on a Substrate development framework that enables cross-chain communication. From the beginning, it will enable cross-chain actions across Ethereum, Klaytn, BNB Chain, and Avalanche, with more chains to be integrated in the future. You can find more information on BIFROST Network in our blogpost.

BIFROST Ecosystem

Existing applications developed by the BIFROST team will be migrating to the BIFROST Network, and the new products are under development. BiFi, the lending/borrowing market, alongside the Cross-Chain DEX will be pillars of the BIFROST DeFi ecosystem. ChainRunner will play the role of the router for the trades across chains in the DEX. Having these natively cross-chain products on BIFROST Network will enable the next level of user experience due to synergies and composability that becomes possible. You can find more information about the incoming decentralized exchange in our blogpost.
