xChain Monthly — November

Welcome to the xChain Monthly, Wormhole’s monthly update about everything xChain.

This November, we put our heads down and kept on building, more determined than ever. We’re seeing some great progress and innovation coming out of the space:

⛓️ New Chains

⚬ We teased a new chain — did you solve the puzzle? We kinda gave it away a bit later, though…

⚬ Arbitrum went live on Wormhole! Here’s the full announcement, the blog post “Wormhole Chains — Arbitrum,” and a ”Wormhole in 60” video about Arbitrum.

⚬ Time for a Twitter Space! Pyth and Wormhole sit sat down with Arbitrum to discuss scaling Ethereum, cross-chain oracle data and the xChain future.

💻 Building

Github stats for October showed record activity numbers in Wormhole’s repo — devs are actively (and openly) building & improving the Wormhole network.

⚬ During market events on Nov 10th (and following), Wormhole integrators have seen an increased demand for transactions between Ethereum and Solana. During that period, Wormhole has been operating without any downtime and has continued processing all transactions as usual.

🤝 Powered by Wormhole

Cross-chain swapping & bridging within a wallet — how cool is that!? Made possible by XDEFI Wallet and Wormhole.

⚬ Full blog post & Twitter thread about XDEFI Wallet integrating Wormhole.

Bonfida teased the idea of using Wormhole to bring SNS (Solana Name Service) cross-chain. That means you’ll soon be able to use your .sol address on all supported chains the same way you do now on Solana! We’re as excited as you are — so stay tuned!

⚬ Thanks to Pyth integrating with the Wormhole Network, Pyth’s data feeds are now available on Ethereum and Optimism.

⚬ Aries Markets, the biggest lending protocol on Aptos, built their own bridging solution with Wormhole! Now, users can easily bridge tokens from Solana to Aptos without leaving the Aries app …and EVMs are coming soon! Check it out here.

👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 Community

Great to see a 94% approval from the HUMAN community to use Wormhole for bringing Human Protocol xChain!

⚬ Cetus Protocol ran a highly successful “Cetus x Wormhole Bridging Giveaway” on Twitter.

⚬ “The Illuminate/22 Hack by Moonbeam” is in full swing! Check out @spacemandev’s Wormhole workshop on how to get started with xChain development.

More hacking! Do you think you got what it takes? Complete a bounty challenge at “The Illuminate/22 Hack by Moonbeam” and win some of Wormhole’s $20k bounty prize!

⚬ Our core contributor, Chase M., joined Moonbeam Ambassador @jx_block for the Wormhole x Moonbeam Community AMA on Binance LIVE.

Curve Finance went live on Celo — that’s great news because users can now swap USDC & USDT bridged from Ethereum to Celo!

🪄 Rando

⚬ We spent a weekend in Lisbon at Solana Breakpoint, and Csongor K. gave a great workshop: “dApps Without Borders: How to Build With xDapp Frameworks
