Launch Testnet

The Blockchainfor Cross-ChainApps.

An EVM-compatible L1 blockchain that connects everything: Build interoperable dApps that span any chain including Bitcoin; access all chains from one place.

Start Building







One entry point into all of crypto

Crypto today is insular and siloed. ZetaChain believes that crypto should be easy, safe, and accessible for everyone. Just like the Internet, you shouldn’t have to know how it all works in order to use and benefit from it.

Apps built on ZetaChain connect to anything in the crypto ecosystem, giving you simple, seamless, and secure access to all of crypto, as if it were all in a single place.

For developers

Simplicity for a complex industry

With 100+ existing public blockchains and more emerging, interoperability is one of web3’s biggest challenges. We see the future of crypto as a connected one.


Seamless entry for consumers

Access all of your assets and data and interact with the entire web3 ecosystem in one place.

One-stop shop for developers

ZetaChain enables devs to build and deploy apps that work across all chains, from a single place.

Minimized risk for your assets

With ZetaChain, funds in motion have minimized attack surface, and funds at rest are never at risk.

Built for interoperability

ZetaChain is the only public, decentralized blockchain and smart contract platform that enables message passing and value transfer between any blockchain, including non-smart contract chains like Bitcoin and Dogecoin. No other blockchain enables fully interoperable smart contracts like we do.

ZetaChain is both an L1 blockchain and a smart contract platform with built-in connectivity to all blockchains. It is the only public blockchain with smart contracts that can manage assets, data, & liquidity on any chain, even Bitcoin.

Crypto is a walled garden. It is full of closed systems, complex jargon, and difficult-to-use UX, not to mention existing interoperability solutions put a ton of risk on users. When users have to manage multiple wallets, bridge assets, and learn how to operate on multiple different networks, it’s no wonder users are frustrated. This high activation energy blocks many potential crypto users from ever entering the space.

ZetaChain believes that crypto can benefit everyone, and it should be easy to access, like the Internet. ZetaChain was created to provide users with a more secure, versatile, and fluid solution, and to lower the barrier to entry for anyone interested in crypto, not just those with enough experience or technical knowledge.

You can think of ZetaChain as not only an L1 blockchain, but also a functional layer that connects all other blockchains.

What goes on behind the scenes:

  • Nodes: Our network nodes observe events (e.g., sending a payment) on external chains, reach consensus on them, and sign off to any connected chain.
  • Omnichain smart contracts: Our omnichain smart contracts read these events from and process them out to external chains. These smart contracts are a single source of truth that maintain the state of assets and data across all connected chains.
  • Chain-agnostic message passing: Existing smart contracts send data and value across chains and layers with a simple function call.

ZetaChain uses a simpler and more robust trust model, where only our network is trusted to deliver data/value, vs. a third-party. On our decentralized proof-of-stake network, no single node has knowledge of any private key. ZetaChain can sign and hold assets natively, and funds at rest are never at risk. Since we use ZETA as an intermediary token in the process of sending assets, attack surface is minimized, drastically reducing security risk for users.

ZetaChain is truly chain-agnostic and can connect all blockchains. It even supports non-smart contract chains like Bitcoin and Dogecoin, giving these chains smart contract capabilities that were never before possible.

No other blockchain enables fully interoperable smart contracts and chain-agnostic odApps. Because of this, ZetaChain has the unique capability of seamlessly and reliably enabling countless use cases across industries.

We see the future of web3 as a connected one, where developers can build and leverage the power of many networks seamlessly, and users will no longer have to worry about switching or bridging between them. ZetaChain will be an invisible force powering a seamless user experience for all. No more complex jargon and frustrating UX for users - they’ll have one place to access all of their assets and data, and can roam the crypto world smoothly and safely.

Going forward, we see ZetaChain powering an entire ecosystem of odApps across industries: Social, Fashion, Defi - the sky is the limit! This could look like: gamers being able to access their accounts and in-game items from anywhere in the crypto ecosystem, owning and transferring NFTs to and from chains, or sending and receiving payments to and from any wallet, regardless of chain. The possibilities are endless.

Yes! We are a global, mission-driven team excited about the omnichain future. If you’re interested in building with us, check out our open jobs here.
