What is Socket?
Socket is an interoperability protocol for secure & efficient data and asset transfers across chains. Socket is not a bridge or a cross-chain app – it is an infrastructure that allows developers to build these things easily. Developers can use Socket to build apps with interoperability as a core part of app infrastructure.
Every approach to interoperability optimizes for different objective & trade-offs (trust, latency, generalizability etc.). No one approach is best for every type of use case. Our goal is to empower developers to optimize for their use case & objectives
