Connext, a level-2 interoperability protocol for Ethereum, today announced that it has formed a new partnership with Nomad, an interoperability protocol without header verification, to accelerate the adoption of trustless, fully generalized cross-chain communication.
This partnership enables the world’s first modular interoperability stack that provides users a fast, cheap, and trust-minimized way to bridge assets between chains.
Overview of Nomad
Nomad is an implementation and extension of the Optics protocol short for “OPTimistic Interchain Communication.” It is a new design for cheap, fully generalized cross-chain communication that can easily be deployed to any chain or L2 that supports user-defined computations.
As part of its protocol. Nomad utilizes an optimistic pattern. Messages that pass through Nomad have a latency of 35–60 minutes, within which fraud can be proven if message relayers are dishonest.
Particularly, Nomad is an ideal protocol for more generalized cross-chain operations that are typically performed by DAOs or other organizations, rather than end-users. For example, Nomad allows for migrating USDC from Ethereum L1 to other chains with lower trust assumptions than other bridges.
Some of the inherent problems with building cross-chain communication systems include:
- Trust-minimized: Do not involve trusted 3rd parties.
- Extensible: Can be quickly and easily deployed to new rollups/chains.
- Generalizable: Support sending arbitrary data across chains.
“Similar to the Scalability Trilemma, the Connext team proposed that it could solve this trilemma through a modular architecture where different communication protocols are layered on top of one another. Our work with Nomad is the first live example of the modular interoperability thesis in action!”

Connext + Nomad
Connext’s protocol enables trustlessly sending value and calling contracts across blockchains and L2s. However, unlike Nomad, Connext does not allow for fully generalized communication but it does have much lower latency.
Additionally, Connext doesn’t mint tokens on a destination chain — rather, it relies on liquidity minted by other bridging systems like Nomad, thus absorbing their trust/risk assumptions.
The synergies between Connext and Nomad run deep. By using madTokens (as opposed to assets created by Multichain, Celer, or other trusted systems), Connext significantly reduces the trust/risk requirements for its users on any given chain.
At the same time, Connext provides a way for Nomad users to have “fast liquidity” on a given chain, leveraging Connext’s low latency liquidity pools to allow end-users to do transfers in minutes rather than with a latency over 30 minutes.
Already Live on Moonbeam
Users bridging via the Nomad app will be dynamically routed to Connext or Nomad depending on available liquidity and the size of the user’s transfer.
Further, Connext reports that whales and institutions will take the longer 35m Nomad bridging time, while end-users quickly trying to use Moonbeam apps will be routed via Connext. As liquidity on Connext grows, the use of Nomad can shift towards institutional capital and rebalancing Connext liquidity pools.
“The Connext ecosystem is already working on integrating Nomad into interfaces like xPollinate. We also plan to heavily advocate for and support Nomad’s growth as it rolls out to other chains and L2s. Longer term, our goal is to work closely with the Nomad team on shared offchain infrastructure and a combined onchain interface for developers. This would mean that, in a single integration, apps can leverage fast, limited Connext-style or slower, general Nomad-style communication depending a project’s context-specific needs.”

I dugg some of you post as I cerebrated they were handy extremely helpful
Hello! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
I saw a lot of website but I think this one holds something special in it in it
Thanks for this post, I am a big fan of this internet site would like to proceed updated.
Thanks for helping out, fantastic info. “Job dissatisfaction is the number one factor in whether you survive your first heart attack.” by Anthony Robbins.
As soon as I observed this site I went on reddit to share some of the love with them.
Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.
You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely huge for me. I am looking forward to your subsequent submit, I will try to get the hold of it!
Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.
Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

Good day! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
It’s laborious to find educated people on this topic, however you sound like you already know what you’re speaking about! Thanks
Some times its a pain in the ass to read what blog owners wrote but this internet site is really user friendly! .
