August in Review - Swim Protocol

August in Review - Swim Protocol

Education and community continues to be one of the main pillars of Swim as we build out exciting and innovative improvements to our core product, with August really emphasizing how important this is to us.

Whilst we've been hard at work behind the scenes, we simultaneously continued to reach out to partners, educators and members of our community to hear thoughts on how we could improve, pass on the market research and knowledge we've gleaned from building Swim and beyond as well as being transparent and accountable through open community events.

So without further ado, why was August the month of community?

About Swim

Swim is a multi-chain AMM for native assets, designed to make bridging as easy as possible. Our protocol eliminates the need for wrapped assets by allowing users to swap from a native asset on one chain to a native asset on any other supported chain. Swim’s solution reduces the barriers faced by users when performing cross-chain transactions, enabling true interoperability between various blockchain networks.
