Development

  1. Orbiter Finance Integration

We’re integrating a new cross-chain provider Orbiter Finance into the Rubic App.

Orbiter Finance is a decentralized cross-rollup Layer 2 bridge, supporting zkSync Era, Base, Arbitrum, Scroll, Starknet & other chains.

With this integration, Rubic will offer enhanced routing options on Base, Linea, zkSync Era, Arbitrum, Polygon, Polygon zkEVM, Optimism, BNB Chain, Manta, Mantle, ZetaChain, & Scroll, optimizing your cross-chain trading experience for increased efficiency!

ETA: Next Week

2. Shardeum Testnet Integration

The new incentivised Shardeum testnet is launching soon, and Rubic is prepared to seamlessly integrate it into our App upon its announcement. We’re enhancing Rubic’s testnet feature with the 8th testnet already to enable our users to be early adopters of prominent chains.

Shardeum stands out as an EVM-based linearly scalable Layer 1 Blockchain designed to offer perpetually low gas fees while upholding true decentralization and robust security. It employs groundbreaking technologies such as Dynamic State Sharding and Proof of Quorum, enabling the atomic processing of cross-shard transactions.

With Shardeum’s integration, Rubicans can effortlessly activate their wallets within the blockchain ecosystem, accessing all the advantages reserved for early adopters.

ETA: End of February

4. Ethereum Holesky Testnet Integration

The Holesky testnet is replacing the Goerli testnet for the Ethereum network. It is planned to be the new testing environment for protocol developments, infrastructures, and developments related to consensus staking. Alongside Sepolia, Holesky will become the primary testing environment for developers on Ethereum.

The Rubic Development team has integrated Holesky into the Rubic App, ensuring seamless access for developers and users alike.

5. Enhancing Cross-Chain Capabilities with DLN Integration for Solana

We’re currently in the final stages of integrating DLN for on-chain & cross-chain swaps to and from the Solana Network. This addition aims to diversify transaction routing options, ensuring our users enjoy improved rates and faster swaps. Stay tuned for an enriched cross-chain experience!
