By now, it’s clear we’re in a multi-chain reality with multifold opportunities for decentralized applications. deBridge is meeting with huge demand as a pioneer in facilitating smooth and efficient transfers of value and assets across different base layers of blockchain. What I’m looking forward to is a very near future where walled gardens have been transformed into fully interconnected decentralized networks. It’s a vision promised by some projects in the past but one that can be truly realized by layer- or chain-agnostic infrastructure such as deBridge.
–Xinshu Dong, Partner at IOSG
deBridge’s core team has known Xinshu and the team for a long time and has been impressed by their energy and vision with IOSG Ventures. We’re ecstatic to have them onboard with deBridge. The team rapidly grasped the intricacy of the problems that deBridge is solving during our first conversation. Right away, they asked the right questions and provided some fantastic observations.
