Swingby Labs

A staking-powered protocol for warp speed bridging of DeFi assets

Senior Blockchain Engineer

Introducing Swingby Labs

Swingby Labs is a Singapore-based company and was founded in 2018. We are a group of cryptocurrency enthusiasts who joined forces to develop tools that connect Bitcoin with other blockchains.

Our first protocol, Skybridge, builds trustless bridges between BTC, Ethereum, Binance Chain and other blockchains secured by a network of node groups that execute fast cross-chain swaps with threshold signature schemes and multi-party computing technology.

Skybridge allows a user to move Bitcoin tokens to the Ethereum and Binance Chain blockchains without relying on a central custodian, opening up a whole world of DeFi capabilities such as liquidity pooling and DEX interaction with the easiest UX on the block.

And we don’t plan to stop there! Our ultimate goal is to bridge as many different assets and blockchains together to build the “cross-chain gateway to DeFi”.
