Spotting the Next Multichain: How to Evaluate Crypto Bridges
The Multichain bridge, one of the oldest and more established token bridges used in DeFi, has suffered a $126 million loss in July, making it one of the larger bridge hacks in history. But this one is different from previous hacks like the Nomad bridge. No code was really compromised, as reportedly the assets were taken by the CEO’s sister. Multichain’s CEO, known only as Zhaojun, was apparently apprehended by Chinese authorities a few weeks prior. The CEO’s disappearance wreaked havoc on the team’s operations, according to their own report. Zhaojun held several important keys that were important for the operation and maintenance of the protocol. According to the explanation published by the Multichain team, they had asked his sister for access to these keys via cloud backups. Allegedly, she then took the money “for safekeeping” only to be arrested herself shortly after. The incident highlighted what some industry experts and insiders knew all along: Multichain was an extremely centralized bridge, which literally ceased to function as soon as its CEO became unavailable. For a crypto project, this is a damning story — even traditional corporations are more decentralized than that. Why this wasn’t spotted Given these revelations, it seems surprising that people trusted Multichain enough to have hundreds of millions of dollars deposited on the platform. Venket Naga, CEO at blockchain privacy-preserving platform, Serenity Shield, gave a few ideas how this might have happened. “First, the code's complexity may have made it challenging for non-experts to identify potential loopholes. Second, there might have been limited transparency and auditing, allowing crucial issues to go unnoticed,” he explained. Because of their cross-chain nature, bridges are often a black box. Even though Multichain’s core architecture is open-source, the complexity of these systems means that it’s difficult to have a good understanding of how it’s all implemented. “Trust in the code's integrity might have been assumed, neglecting the need for robust security assessments,” added Naga. “Moving forward, conducting comprehensive audits, fostering transparency, and engaging the community are crucial to prevent similar situations.” Bridge Choice 101 Bridge vulnerabilities are a common theme in Web3, and many teams deemed competent and reputable suffered enormous losses. So how can an average user try to avoid these incidents and spot unsafe bridges from further away? There is no perfect standard, but ideally it should be a mix of robust decentralization, simple architecture and good history of operation. For example, for bridges running on some form of trusted validators (which applies to most of them), you would expect that these entities should be well-known, and at least somewhat separate from the bridge’s creators. Architecture-wise, most bridges today are quite simple contracts based on multi-signature cryptography. More decentralized options have emerged from time to time, most notably Nomad. Unfortunately, these solutions are more complex, so this bridge got hacked because of one poorly implemented line of code. A good indicator is time. Poor bridges fail and only the sturdy options remain after some time — though Multichain is a significant exception to this rule. Many existing bridges have already gone through hacks, notably Wormhole. At the time, the project got “bailed out” by Jump Crypto, which allowed it to resume operations and re-establish some level of trust. But this apparent “insurance” shouldn’t be taken for granted. According to Brandon Brown, CEO and Co-Founder of personal wallet theft protection FairSide, “bridges present complex challenges for cover providers due to centralization and the risks associated with smart contracts. Bridges are a crucial aspect of blockchain usage, but their implementation leaves much to be desired. “To rebuild trust in blockchain bridges, a comprehensive approach is crucial,” according to Naga. “Implementing enhanced security measures, transparent bridge design and operations, rigorous audits, and involving the community in governance are essential. For Broen, “innovative solutions are emerging, such as Axelar's Interchain, which offer promising potential in mitigating the inherent risks of interoperability.” Hopefully, these solutions come sooner rather than later.

Axelar Launches Interchain Token Service $AXL
Axelar has launched the Interchain Token Service (ITS), a solution designed to enhance the interoperability of ERC-20 tokens across all Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)-compatible chains. Among the early adopters of this service is Sushi, a decentralized exchange (DEX), aiming to use the ITS to foster seamless interactions of its native SUSHI token across multiple blockchain networks. Driving Cross-Chain Integration with ITS Axelar’s ITS primarily focuses on the interoperability of ERC-20 tokens across all EVM-compatible ecosystems. These tokens are generated on a 1:1 ratio and are managed through Axelar’s native computing environment, the Axelar Virtual Machine. The newly revealed service is set to provide a muchj-needed boost to the ease of token interaction across Ethereum-compatible chains. Decentralized exchange Sushi is set to be one of the first adopters of the “interchain tokens” provided through this service. Sushi's team plans to use the ITS to facilitate seamless interaction of its native SUSHI token across multiple chains. Initial deployment will ensure interoperability of SUSHI across Arbitrum, Ethereum, Optimism, and Polygon. This move will enable SushiSwap, Sushi's decentralized exchange, to manage its multichain deployments more efficiently via the Axelar network. Jared Grey, Sushi’s head chef, emphasized the utility of this service, stating: "Axelar’s Interchain Token Service unlocks a more seamless, interchain experience for Sushi users." Tackling Security and Compatibility Challenges The traditional approach to facilitating cross-chain transfers for Web3 applications generally relied on bridged token versions. These bridged versions could be exposed to inherent security risks and compatibility issues. Axelar’s interoperability solution, according to co-founder Sergey Gorbunov, addresses these challenges. Gorbunov noted that Axelar's innovative approach utilizes specialized smarlt contracts and a software development kit, which enables developers to manage interchain tokens more efficiently. Notably, Gorbunov says that the bridged versions of tokens, similar to SUSHI, currently lack fungibility and carry a bridge risk. In contrast, Interchain Tokens represent a "true" cross-chain interoperability merged with security and simplicity. The news comes after Axelar's announcement following its partnership with Chainlink's cross-chain interoperability protocol. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Crypto Weekly Roundup: SEC Under Fire And More
The SEC has been facing increasing levels of scrutiny and criticism over its less than ideal approach to regulating the industry. It has come under fire from various industry leaders and a bill to dismiss the chairperson has even garnered support from several lawmakers. Let’s find out more. Bitcoin The world’s largest asset manager, BlackRock, has filed an application for a Bitcoin spot exchange-traded fund (ETF). However, there are concerns that Blackrock could, in one fail swoop, take control of Bitcoin. Crypto exchange Binance has announced the launch of its new subscription-based Bitcoin cloud mining services. The Federal Reserve did not raise rates for the first time since the inflation-inspired start of its rapid interest rate expansion. However, crypto continues its downward slide. Ethereum The Bank of China (BOCI) has made history by issuing tokenized securities on the Ethereum blockchain in Hong Kong. DeFi Frax Finance has unveiled its plans to roll out an Ethereum Layer 2 blockchain, aptly named Fraxchain. Uniswap recently disclosed its preferred choice for handling non-Ethereum deployments in its cross-chain bridging operations: Wormhole and Axelar. Uniswap has also unveiled plans for Uniswap v4, the next iteration of the hugely popular crypto platform. An Aave proposal intended to prevent a particular account from accumulating more debt has led to significant controversy, with some stating that it violates the principle of neutrality in DeFi. Altcoins A group of Terra Classic Core developers, the Joint L1 Task Force (L1TF), has announced that it is ready for the Parity Upgrade, set for the 14th of June, 2023. Ethereum Layer-2 scaling solution Polygon (MATIC) has unveiled its Version 2.0, the blueprint for which will be revealed over the next few weeks. Technology Polygon recently proposed a new decentralized governance model aimed at enhancing its network's security, upgradeability, and robustness.

Regulation Tether, the issuer of the leading stablecoin USDT, reportedly deactivated around 29 accounts tied to significant players in the cryptocurrency sphere in 2021. Binance is reportedly under scrutiny from French financial regulatory authorities, who have been investigating the exchange's activities since at least the early quarter of 2022. Crypto exchange OKCoin has come under the scrutiny of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) over accusations of making false promises to customers. The Blockchain Association has filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the SEC over the regulator's interactions with Prometheum. The Hong Kong government has proactively advocated for major banks to embrace clients engaged in digital currencies. Coinbase has become the latest entity to push back against the SEC’s proposal of changing the definition of an exchange. According to Tim Draper, the SEC Chair Gary Gensler is stifling the crypto sector leading to a potential long-term detrimental effect on technology in the US. Following a Financial Services Committee hearing on Tuesday, a digital asset bill will be voted on in July which will give clarity to the crypto industry. The SEC has requested four more months to respond to Coinbase’s call for crypto regulatory clarity. Crypto billionaires Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss cautioned the Democratic Party that its “war on crypto” will result in its losing crucial voters. United States Congressman Warren Davidson has filed a new bill called the SEC Stabilization Act, which looks to restructure the regulatory body, including the dismissal of current SEC Chair Gary Gensler.

Uniswap Aligns with Wormhole and Axelar for Cross-Chain Bridging
Uniswap recently disclosed its preferred choice for handling non-Ethereum deployments in its cross-chain bridging operations: Wormhole and Axelar. These selections are the result of a comprehensive analysis conducted by Uniswap's Bridge Assessment Committee, which evaluated a range of potential protocols. The proposed changes are also aligned to the protocol's recent disclosure of its plans for V4. Diving Deep into the Decision Uniswap's Bridge Assessment Committee scrutinized multiple contenders, namely Wormhole, Celer, DeBridge, LayerZero, Axelar, and Multichain (CRP). Each of these was rigorously assessed for its proficiency in facilitating cross-chain governance. Out of the competition, Wormhole and Axelar emerged victorious, with the committee endorsing these two for utilization across all cross-chain deployments. As the committee puts it, both Wormhole and Axelar have demonstrated their aptness in managing governance messaging for potential cross-chain deployments. They, however, advised the community to persistently review these and other bridge providers, bearing in mind the dynamics of the industry. Cross-Chain Governance and Its Implications The fundamental application for Uniswap DAO's cross-chain bridge lies in its ability to relay governance messages from Ethereum to other chains for execution. All Uniswap deployment proposals undertake a formal voting procedure on Ethereum. Any upgrades for deployments on alternate chains are then communicated via a cross-chain messaging protocol. While Wormhole and Axelar have gained the committee's approval, this doesn't entirely exclude other bridges. The report also pointed out that those deemed unsuitable for Uniswap's present cross-chain governance needs might still satisfy the prerequisites of other protocols and applications. Vulnerabilities and Controversies: The Story of Cross-Chain Bridges The controversy around cross-chain bridges in the Web3 sphere is nothing new. In 2022, these bridging protocols proved to be a weak spot, with hackers successfully exploiting them and causing billions in losses. As per data from Rekt, four out of the top five most expensive DeFi breaches targeted bridges, resulting in an aggregated loss of over $2.1 billion. In response to these vulnerabilities, Uniswap has formed its Cross-Chain Bridge Assessment Committee to aid governance delegates and the Uniswap community in making well-informed decisions regarding cross-chain bridging protocols. The Committee's evaluations covered more than 130 assessment questions for each protocol, taking into account their ability to ensure "safety, liveness, and censorship resistance". Looking ahead, Celer and DeBridge might be reassessed despite their current shortcomings in slashing mechanisms and security assurances. The report was notably critical of Multichain for its lack of transparency and ineffective deterrents to prevent validator collusion. To underscore the context, Uniswap has over $5.9 billion locked in its protocol as of May 2023, with daily transaction volume frequently exceeding $1 billion. Given these figures, Uniswap's choice of Wormhole and Axelar could have significant implications for both the involved protocols and Uniswap's ongoing cross-chain operations.
