Manta Network Partners with Axelar for Bridging Private Assets

Manta Network, the privacy hub for Web3, is proud to announce its official partnership with Axelar for bridging crypto assets to privatize within Manta Network’s L1 privacy solution. Axelar is the universal overlay network, securely connecting all blockchain ecosystems, applications, assets and users to deliver Web3 interoperability. This strategic partnership will enable privacy for assets on other chains, including Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche and Terra.

By bridging over the Axelar network, Manta Network will be able to privatize crypto assets from networks and dapps existing beyond the Polkadot ecosystem. Leveraging this access, Manta Network intends to expand the adoption of its ZKP privacy technology to the entire Web3 ecosystem of projects and networks.

“On our mission to bring privacy to Web3, we are focusing on broadening Manta Network’s privacy capabilities to other chains and projects,” said Shumo Chu, Co-founder and core contributor to Manta Network. “Axelar’s decentralized bridge provides an excellent solution for us. They achieve decentralization, high-performance, and security at the same time. Their bridge-hub design (instead of P2P bridge) can bridge Manta to a wide variety of chains. I have been working with Axelar founders during my time at Algorand. I have a lot of confidence in their engineering team’s execution, which is exceedly important to bridge security.”

“Allowing developers like Shumo and the Manta Network team to focus on their core functionality, and build on the blockchain that is best for their users’ needs, is what Axelar is all about,” said Sergey Gorbunov, CEO and Co-founder of Axelar. “Manta Network has taken a leadership position in Web3 security and we look forward to seeing that value proposition extend across chain.”
