Prime Protocol Partners with Moonbeam

Published on:

Prime Protocol partners with Moonbeam. Prime Protocol has announced its upcoming cross-chain connected lending and borrowing application, which will be deployed on multiple blockchains and use Moonbeam as the nexus point for unifying functionality across the many chains.

This architecture is a significant departure from today’s multi-instance approaches. Many siloed implementations of an application exist across chains but aren’t able to communicate with each other. With connected smart contracts on Moonbeam, Prime can allow users to borrow against their existing portfolio of assets on other remote chains. It doesn’t need to bridge those assets to Moonbeam.

PARTNERSHIP BENEFITS FOR EACH COMPANY

This represents a major shift forward for Web3 usability. Teams can now offer unified access to assets and services from a single application. Preventing the fragmented user experiences, liquidity, and functionality that is inherent in decentralized applications today.

“Current multi-chain deployments with isolated smart contracts result in a fragmentation of liquidity, features, and user experiences. The connected contracts approach that the Prime team has taken directly addresses this fragmentation. IT gives them the ability to provide superior protocol efficiency and user experiences. I believe we are at the beginning of a big shift in how DeFi protocols are built to handle multi-chain requirements in a unified way. Prime is a leading example of this shift.”—Derek Yoo, Founder of Moonbeam

“Moonbeam has positioned itself to be a gateway for cross-chain connections, joining functionality from remote chains within the EVM universe and the rapidly-growing Polkadot ecosystem. We are extremely excited to collaborate and join the incredibly strong community Moonbeam has built.”—Colton Conley, founder of Prime Protocol

Cross-chain connected applications like Prime are part of the Moonbeam team’s broader vision to create more compelling user experiences by removing the constraints of solo chain development and unlocking true interoperability. Ultimately, built-in interoperability reduces the reliance on traditional bridges as a means of moving assets from chain to chain. Instead, it allows users to tap into functionality from many blockchains through a single application.

This initiative comes on the heels of Moonbeam’s announcement of Harvest Moon, a campaign designed to expand DeFi activity and attract the next wave of connected applications to come build on Moonbeam. The Moonbeam Foundation has indicated that it has allocated up to 1.5% of its native token (GLMR) genesis supply to fund grants as part of the Harvest Moon campaign.

ABOUT Moonbeam

Moonbeam is an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform on the Polkadot network that makes it easy to build natively interoperable applications. This Ethereum compatibility allows developers to deploy existing Solidity smart contracts and DApp frontends to Moonbeam with minimal changes. Moonbeam is expected to accumulate developer and user activity from the 80+ projects building DApps and protocols on the network.
