  1. What is Axelar Network?

There are a lot of blockchain systems in the world today. Each blockchain is a separate ecosystem on which dApp developers build their applications. These applications in most cases work only in one ecosystem and it is difficult for their developers to transfer their program to other blockchains. The Axelar Network allows dApps developers to develop their projects on every blockhain while maintaining the security and privacy of their applications.

Axelar allows you to interact with all known blockchains. You can lock, unlock, transfer assets, and communicate with your applications on any other chain through the Axelar API. Axelar is building a unique product that can become a leader in its field. The team opens up new opportunities for developers, that can change cryptocurrency ecosystems forever.
