Chains that speak IBC can share any type of data as long as it's encoded in bytes, enabling the industry’s most feature-rich cross-chain interactions.
IBC is completely open-source: Anyone can build with IBC, and there’s no in-protocol rent extraction or hidden fees - ever.
IBC’s light client-based interoperability removes the need for a trusted third party in cross-chain interactions, securing tens of billions in annual value transfer without a single exploit since launch.
Send data cross-chain and asynchronously receive receipt confirmations for adaptable workflows leveraging multiple smart contracts & applications.
Extend existing applications with flexible middleware, resulting in endless possibilities for your cross-chain workflow.
Perform actions on a different chain without leaving the origin blockchain, meaning your users never leave your front-end.
Read state and verify data from other blockchains, enabling workflows harnessing information from the wider network.
Send and receive fungible tokens and NFTs cross-chain without relying on third party trust assumptions.
