Ethereum, the foremost altcoin of the global crypto market, has been surrounded by many a controversial sentiment regarding its 2nd generation platform, upgrade, and ETH coin price. However, with 2nd generation crypto lacking the power to be one of the best DeFi platforms of the market, Solana is launching a bridge to Ethereum widely known as “Wormhole.”
Solana, a scalability-focused blockchain, today informed about the cross-chain bridge—Wormhole to Ethereum, which will let a project move backward and forward to take complete advantage of the projects impersonated with “high speed and low cost” to resort back to Ethereum.
In common parlance, the current activity, and the launching of this bridge aim to facilitate DeFi to allow everything from margin lending to tokenized asset trading. DeFi more amplifies the crypto space, and this development in crypto space majorly attracts the investors. This will lead to a massive amount of capital but may face a confirm limitation such as congestion and high gas fees resulting in aborted trades or slippages.
Alongside, the Ethereum mining hash rate is now hitting an All-Time High, which clearly shows an increase of 85% when compared to the rate marked at the beginning of the year.
