InterSwap is live on Optimism!

InterSwap is thrilled to announce the successful integration of Optimism. This marks a pivotal step forward towards a truly global Omnichain future!

A Quick Rundown of InterSwap

InterSwap is an AMM (Automated Market Maker) that facilitates the swapping of any asset across any chain. It is not a bridge, but rather an Omnichain Liquidity Layer (or AMM).

InterSwap aims to resolve issues inherent with legacy cross-chain solutions such as cross-chain bridges, CEXes, intermediary assets/chains, etc., by addressing financial risks, capital inefficiencies, and sub-optimal user experiences.

Built natively on Axelar, InterSwap boasts cross-chain communication capabilities that enable fast, secure, and economical transactions.


The Invite-only testnet, InterSwap Genesis, is live across Six chains, including Optimism.

For current InterSwap Genesis users, this integration will:

  • Allow a 1-click transfer of assets from Optimism to other chains and vice versa.

  • Enable permissionless pool creation in Optimism or in conjunction with other chain assets.

  • Facilitate single-sided (asset) liquidity addition/removal.

  • Allow users to directly send destination chain assets to different wallet addresses.
