What Is Li.Finance?

Although crypto and blockchain technologies are being actively developed and improved, they have come a long way since their inception. We started small with a limited number of options— but that’s not the case anymore.

While crypto and blockchain attracted many people because of the rising prices of crypto assets, the ones who stayed for the technology took a trip down the rabbit hole, to say the least. Developers have been BUIDling, and their hard work has produced a vast multi-chain Ecosystem. After years and billions of dollars in research and development, we are finally in a multi-chain ecosystem with over 100 active public blockchains hosting thousands of users daily!

Due to the expansion of the crypto world and the introduction of many blockchains, users have been bombarded with a plethora of options. While this is great and reflects how far we’ve come in our journey, users and developers must be able to determine which blockchain best suits them based on its features and applications. Different blockchains offer unique applications and features that attract users with varying needs. For instance, Ethereum is more decentralized and thus more secure, whereas Solana is faster and thus allows transactions to be settled more quickly.

Some users and developers may be able to find one blockchain that satisfies all their needs. But as humans, we're constantly exploring and trying to make the best of what we have available. In this case, our exploration means using different blockchains and making the most of the various available features. However, this brings us to a problem: the lack of interoperability between different blockchain networks.

Developers have introduced blockchain bridges to fulfill the need for interoperability and unify the increasingly fragmented crypto landscape. In a nutshell, these bridges help users seamlessly transfer funds from one blockchain to another. Unfortunately, the bridging ecosystem is a complex world. Similar to blockchains, bridges are designed differently and thus have different strengths and weaknesses. Moreover, bridges are affected by the interoperability trilemma. As a result, it’s difficult for blockchains to implement bridges that best suit their infrastructure. In order to offer users a good experience, blockchains usually end up implementing more than one bridge. A single bridge cannot satisfy all of the needs and wants of all users and developers.

So, what’s the solution?

This is where Li.Finance comes into the picture and offers a solution for the fragmenting liquidity in the multi-chain We’re not another bridge. We’re a bridge aggregator with a goal to increase the ease of interoperability within this ever-growing ecosystem.ecosystem.

So, what exactly is Li.Finance?

We’re not another bridge. We’re a bridge aggregator with a goal to increase the ease of interoperability within this ever-growing ecosystem.

At Li.Finance, we aggregate the most important bridges in the ecosystem and offer a one-stop solution for the multi-chain ecosystem. Li.Finance provides a cross-chain liquidity aggregation protocol.  By abstracting away liquidity pools on-chain and the bridges between them, LiFi’s protocol creates a middle layer between the DeFi infrastructure and The DApps.

Being UX Maxis, we are neutral towards any blockchain, infrastructure, or DApp and only want what’s best for the crypto ecosystem. Thus, we offer a product suite to help developers build highly connected applications. If you’re a developer seeking interoperability, here’s why you should implement Li.Finance’s product suite:

  • Bridges bring many problems - The integration of bridges is a friendly gateway that allows users to use any DApp instantly. However, bridges can be complicated to implement and have their own set of problems. With our solution, you won’t have to implement any bridge yourself, and you will have access to our infrastructure, which contains the most important bridges.

  • You will have to implement many bridges - Since bridges have different strengths and weaknesses, one bridge won’t be sufficient to fulfill all of your needs. At Li.Finance, we integrate the most important bridges into one protocol.

  • You may want to add DEXes - As developers, the goal is to offer the best solution to the users. As a result, when developers typically implement a bridge, they also want to add DEX and DEX aggregators. At Li.Finance, we connect the bridges to DEXes and DEX aggregators, which allows for cross-chain any-to-any swaps.

  • We offer a comprehensive solution - Our product suite consists of the following:

    • An upgradeable smart contract - This helps abstract away the communication between different bridging solutions.

    • An intelligent routing backend - This helps determine the best route for any on-chain or off-chain cross-chain swaps.

    • A JavaScript Software Development Kit (SDK) - This integrates the smart contract and the routing backend.

    • A customizable widget - Being UX Maxis ourselves, we want to help developers provide a pleasant user experience through our customizable widget.

However, this is not the only thing that we offer at Li.Finance. We have also leveraged our experience working with bridge builders to create a neat solution that makes their lives easier. To assist bridge builders, we:

  • Wrap their bridge

  • Connect it to DEXes

  • Provide an SDK that is labeled and hardcoded to use just their bridge

  • Offer a great user experience (We’re UX Maxis, after all)

The Li.Finance project has already attracted more than half of the active bridge builders in the DApp ecosystem. This is just the beginning — we're only just getting started! By partnering with some of the brightest minds in the crypto space and maintaining good relationships with all stakeholders in the ecosystem, our goal is to create the best abstraction and aggregation solution available to the market!
