Wormhole to officially rebrand as Helix in pursuit of being a safe community tool for cross-chain assets
Wormhole is pleased to announce that from now on, Wormhole shall be known as Helix! UI will update within 1 week!
Why do we decide to rebrand Wormhole to Helix?
Wormhole was initially positioned to cross-chain token bridge services between heterogeneous chains. With more research and countless discussions, we believe that we should separate the message passing framework and token asset management. This was done to reduce the complexity of Wormhole’s design and improve the security of user assets. For this reason, Wormhole has decided to upgrade the brand to Helix.
What would be the future focus of Helix?
It will focus more on token management and token bridge aggregation while Darwinia will focus more on providing a delivery network for bridge messages. Meanwhile, as a member of Darwinia’s ecosystem, Helix will undoubtedly integrate Darwinia’s message service to build its cross-chain applications and tools to enhance asset security.
The new branding signals a strategic change to be dedicated to becoming an efficient cross-chain aggregator, which provides a comprehensive, easy-to-use interface for users to view, confirm, and inspect transactions.
Helix will maintain the concept of open cooperation, integrating the industry’s best bridge applications for a better user experience. At the same time, Helix will be committed to deep technical research in the cross-chain bridge field to provide users with more secure, reliable, and economical cross-chain bridge services.
