Pangolin partners with Axelar to bring New Assets and Trading Options to Avalanche
Pangolin is proud to announce a formal partnership with Axelar. Axelar is a decentralized interoperability network that connects blockchain ecosystems, applications and users. The partnership will enable Pangolin to access assets from major layer-1 blockchains such as the Cosmos Hub, Terra, Bitcoin, and more.
Pangolin is excited to support the assets that Axelar can bring to Avalanche, and will be looking to add integrations with Axelar’s protocol and bridging capabilities. Axelar’s protocol will enable Pangolin to support deep liquidity pools for new trading pairs like Cosmos’ native cryptocurrency ATOM and TerraUSD (UST), a stablecoin built on the Terra blockchain. With this integration, Pangolin will be bootstrapping the use of these assets in Avalanche’s fast-growing decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem.
“We are looking forward to partnering with Pangolin to broaden and enhance the variety of assets and trading options available on the platform. As a democratic platform that has showcased remarkably fast settlements, Pangolin is a fantastic place for Axelar to expand its interoperability mission with decentralized exchanges. Avalanche offers both a strong network and community and we are excited for Pangolin to join the Axelar ecosystem.” — Sergey Gorbunov, Co-Founder and CEO of Axelar
