Force Bridge Demo is now live!

Experience the cross-chain bridge between Nervos and Ethereum

Sparkling

Force Bridge is a framework for building cross-chain bridges that can connect Nervos with multiple other chains.

The Force Bridge team recently released a Demo of the cross-chain bridge from Ethereum and Nervos for everyone to try out. The demo is deployed on Ethereum’s Rinkeby test network, as well as Aggron, the CKB test network. 

Check out the demo here and look forward to more bridge demos in the future!

RFC

Nervos applies the RFC (Request for Comments) process for implementing every building block of the protocol. There were 27 previous RFCs, which can be found here.

If you are curious about the design decisions of aspects of CKB or anything built on it, please post your questions in this repository.
