What is Axelar (WAXL)?

Axelar (WAXL/USDT – Trade it Here) is a blockchain connecting blockchains, enabling universal Web3 interoperability. The network is secured using proof-of-stake consensus, and messages are routed and translated using permissionless protocols. In this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about Axelar plus a guide on how to buy WAXL tokens.

Key Features of Axelar (WAXL)

As a Web3 platform that connects blockchains, the ultimate goal for Axelar is to build the underlying infrastructure for onboarding the next billion people onto Web3. In order to achieve this, Axelar have several key features such :

Easy Access Enables blockchain developers to plug in and communicate with other chains.

Cross-chain composability Axelar provides decentralized app (dApp) developers with the cross-chain composability.

Seamless interaction Axelar allows users to interact seamlessly with apps across multiple ecosystems.

How does Axelar (WAXL) work?

The Axelar network has three key components across two functional layers. It provides a decentralized network that connects dApp builders with blockchain ecosystems. Here’s how it works :

A decentralized network

The first is the decentralized network itself, supported by a set of validators that are responsible for maintaining the network and executing transactions. The validators run the cross-chain gateway protocol, which is a multi-party cryptography overlay that sits on top of Layer 1 blockchains. They are responsible for performing read and write operations to gateway smart contracts deployed on connected external chains, voting and attesting to events on those chains.

Gateway smart contracts

The second are the gateways — smart contracts that provide the connectivity between the Axelar network and its interconnected Layer 1 blockchains. Validators monitor gateways for incoming transactions, which the validators READ. They then come to consensus on the validity of that transaction; once agreed, they WRITE to the destination chain’s gateway to execute the cross-chain transaction. The validators and gateways compose the core infrastructure layer.

Developer tools

Sitting on top of the validators and gateways are the APIs and SDKs (the libraries and tools that enable developers to access the Axelar network easily). This is the application-development layer that developers will use to compose across any two chains in a single hop, adding universal interoperability to their blockchains and applications. With Axelar, they can lock, unlock and transfer assets between any two addresses on any two blockchain platforms, execute cross-chain application triggers, and more generally handle any cross-chain requests.
