- Users can leverage LayerZero’s Ultra Light Nodes (ULNs) to lend assets across any blockchain.
- The integration also means borrowing and lending on LEND Finance is easy and cost-effective, all with single click capability.
- LEND Finance says it settled on LayerZero after Multichain shuttered its operations.
Cross-chain lending protocol LEND Finance has announced an exclusive integration with omnichain interoperability platform LayerZero.
The LayerZero team said in a blog post that the decision to choose the “omnichain interoperability protocol,” was down to its innovative and lightweight cross-chain messaging. The original plan was to launch LEND with cross-chain protocol router Multichain, the platform that recently announced it was shuttering its operations.
As CoinJournal reported last week, Multichain said it had come to the unfortunate decision of shutting shop after events that left the team with funds and access to key servers. Multichain founder and CEO as well as his sister have reportedly been detained in China.
