4 min readOct 24, 2023

Blockchain technology has consistently shown potential to evolve digital interactions and transactional frameworks. However, a persisting challenge has been the fragmentation across different blockchain networks. Addressing this key issue, Telos is proud to announce we’ve integrated with LayerZero to facilitate seamless interactions within the blockchain space.

Telos: A Benchmark in Decentralization, Security, and Scalability

The Telos Network has been a significant entity in the blockchain domain for over five years. Our notable achievement, the tEVM, stands as one of the fastest Ethereum Virtual Machines on the market. With an industry-leading capacity to handle 15, 200+ transactions per second while maintaining minimal transaction fees, Telos has emerged as the preferred choice for many developers and blockchain enthusiasts.

Transitioning towards a Layer 0 network, Telos is more than just a standalone blockchain; Telos is actively striving to be the foundational layer where future blockchains and their ecosystems can build upon securely and efficiently.

LayerZero: The Solution for Blockchain Interoperability

LayerZero addresses the challenge of blockchain fragmentation head-on. Their distinct messaging protocol for native cross-chain transactions eliminates the need for traditional intermediaries, streamlining the process. The LayerZero Endpoint innovation allows any blockchain to conduct cross-chain transactions with another blockchain, provided both integrate this endpoint. Such advancements pave the way for applications like cross-chain DEXs, multi-chain yield aggregators, and interchain lending. LayerZero also provides guaranteed scalability and enhanced security, while presenting unparalleled ease of use.

  • Scalability: LayerZero offers inherent scalability, leveraging the existing infrastructure of interconnected chains rather than necessitating supplementary frameworks. This means LayerZero can scale at the pace of the underlying chain.
  • Security: LayerZero prioritizes security through its utilization of a decentralized Oracle system, which diligently monitors the state of all integrated blockchains. This decentralization of oracles minimizes susceptibility to third-party breaches. Furthermore, the Relayer system promotes transparency, as Relayers are both incentivized and rewarded for successfully executed transactions.
  • Ease of Use: LayerZero is designed for seamless integration, allowing projects to effortlessly incorporate its capabilities, and enabling users to adeptly transfer assets across diverse chains.

Building a Cohesive Blockchain Ecosystem

Telos’ LayerZero integration promises a future where developers are not bound by the constraints of a single network. Leveraging the robust infrastructure of Telos and the interoperability provided by LayerZero, developers can access resources, applications, and systems across various chains efficiently. Additionally, Telos’ expansive network, including over 100 partners, 250 dApps, and 1.2 million accounts, will benefit from LayerZero’s integration, allowing for broader interactions across the blockchain domain.
