Wanchain, a decentralized blockchain interoperability solution that is building fully decentralized bridges connecting the world’s blockchain networks, has just integrated Wanchain’s decentralized, non-custodial cross-chain infrastructure with Polkadot.
As a result of the integration, Polkadot, which is a sharded heterogeneous multi-chain architecture created by Ethereum co-founder Gavin Wood, is now connected to the larger cross-chain DeFi world.

It must be noted that there are already direct bridges connecting Polkadot to Ethereum, Wanchain, Moonriver and Avalanche, which means developers can now build decentralized blockchain applications using $DOT on these blockchains.
Li Ni, Wanchain VP of business development and operations, said on the integration:
"We firmly believe that blockchain technology will only gain mainstream adoption once assets, data, commands and users are no longer isolated on a single chain or constrained by a single standard. Last month, Wanchain deployed cross-chain bridges connecting Moonriver and Avalanche to the larger cross-chain DeFi industry. Now, Wanchain is connecting Polkadot to the rest of the blockchain world."
