OpenOcean Integrates Chainlink CCIP To Power Cross-Chain Token Swaps

Chainlink’s Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) is the industry standard for cross-chain digital asset and data transfer. Leading DeFi protocols and decentralized exchanges as well as traditional financial institutions are integrating CCIP to unlock new use cases and markets for tokenized assets with unique onchain utility.

This week, OpenOcean, a decentralized trading platform for swapping tokens across blockchains and protocols, announced its CCIP integration on the Arbitrum, Avalanche, BNB Chain, Optimism, and Polygon mainnets. OpenOcean is employing CCIP’s Simplified Token Transfer capabilities to facilitate cross-chain transfers of USD-pegged stablecoin, USDC, as a highly liquid intermediary to fuel seamless cross-chain token swaps.

OpenOcean already utilizes Chainlink Automation (formerly Keepers) and Price Feeds across multiple chains to attain seamless and secure limit order functionality. By integrating Chainlink CCIP as its interoperability solution, OpenOcean can secure cross-chain USDC transfers without introducing any additional trust assumptions. 

CCIP achieves the highest level of cross-chain security by utilizing Chainlink’s time-tested oracle infrastructure, which has enabled over $10 trillion in transaction value, and a separate Risk Management Network that independently monitors cross-chain functions for erroneous activity.

In an official announcement, OpenOcean co-founder Lenny described CCIP as “undeniably the most secure cross-chain solution on offer in the blockchain industry today.”

“The Chainlink platform already serves as a fundamental piece of infrastructure for OpenOcean, so it was a no-brainer to use Chainlink CCIP for OpenOcean’s cross-chain swaps,” he said.
