Chainflip Report

by Matthew Harcourt

This is our third in-depth Research Report by Apollo Capital on the native cross-chain swapping protocol Chainflip. A project the Apollo Capital Fund invested in during an early round.

Apollo Capital has always acknowledged the future of the crypto asset industry will be one of the multiple blockchains, and interoperability among protocols will be an expectation. Currently, no applications can bridge or swap native assets cross-chain in a secure and trustless manner. Chainflip solves this as a decentralised, trustless protocol that enables cross-chain swaps between different blockchains.

In this 15 page report, we analyse the necessity for interoperability in the crypto asset market, the mechanics behind Chainflip, and the competitive landscape of interoperable protocols.

We want to thank Simon Harman from the Chainflip team for the help and feedback received throughout this report.

We hope you enjoy this Research Report. Please feel free to forward it to others you think might be interested, and we look forward to bringing you more Research Reports in future.
