4 min readOct 25, 2023

We’re extremely excited to announce that Telos DeFi is officially back with the most trusted cross-chain messaging solution in the industry — LayerZero. With the new Telos Bridge, and 17+ dApp partners being onboarded, we’re entering a new era of user experience for the Telos Ecosystem, enhanced by the support and security of LayerZero Labs.

What types of dApps can you expect?

  • DEXs: Concentrated Liquidity DEXs, Solidly Forks, Balancer Forks, DEX Aggregators
  • Money Markets
  • Launchpads
  • Yield Aggregators
  • Derivatives & Synthetics

Phase one of our DeFi relaunch features Swapsicle V2 with Algebra delivering concentrated liquidity, and Jump DeFi hosting their IDO. Our goal has been to build a composable DeFi ecosystem, to enable users to utilize different platforms and build strategies and we’re doing just that. Each dApp has its own unique highlights, incentives, and rewards. As the rewards become available to the Telos Community, we’ll be sure to let you know; keep an eye out for more information on their respective offerings!

Glancing Back while Charging Forward

Over the past few months, our DeFi ecosystem has shown signs of robust growth, which is a testament to the hard work of our colleagues at Telos Foundation, our ecosystem participants, and our community members. Moreover, our aim as Telos Foundation is to ensure that our community and ecosystem get regular updates on the state of our DeFi ecosystem. With LayerZero and our new dApp partners, we’re primed for exponential growth of users, partners and developers. We’d like to extend a huge thank you to our incredible community for your support and patience as we perfected this solution. We wanted to deliver the best for you, and now we are!

So what does the LZ Bridge mean for Telos?

  • 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.
  • 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 Telos Network.
  • 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.
