Ren Labs, creator of a protocol for cross-blockchain worth change, right this moment introduced that Catalog, the primary shopper software constructed on the Ren blockchain, has raised $7.5 million in a seed funding spherical. Devised by Ren Labs, Catalog is a DeFi app powering cross and multi-chain change with zero gasoline charges.
Now with the waitlist open, Catalog goals to be the primary ‘metaversal’ decentralized change (DEX) and automated market maker (AMM) to swap fungible and non-fungible property throughout any blockchain. By means of connecting property and present liquidity securely throughout blockchains in a single, user-friendly app, Catalog offers trustless and permissionless interoperability between chains.
With low, flat-rate processing charges of solely 0.3% per transaction, Catalog customers won’t ever have to fret in regards to the excessive, unpredictable, and complicated gasoline charges which have annoyed Ethereum customers and hindered the mainstream adoption of DeFi. Along with enabling token swaps throughout blockchains, customers also can earn curiosity on the property they maintain of their Catalog accounts with out having to take any further steps similar to staking or including funds to liquidity swimming pools.
Deliberate options of Catalog additionally embody seamless on and off-ramp experiences, together with the power to hyperlink a checking account for straightforward deposits and withdrawals.

Additional, an intuitive consumer expertise will make it straightforward to ship one other consumer tokens simply by typing their username, relatively than an advanced and hard-to-remember pockets handle.
“We all know that the way forward for DeFi can be cross-chain and multi-chain however there’s presently no easy, decentralized technique to make transactions and conduct enterprise throughout totally different blockchains. Catalog solves this by connecting any consumer immediately to the complete DeFi ecosystem by means of one, extremely easy-to-use app. That is the primary of many functions that can be constructed on the Ren blockchain to energy this borderless imaginative and prescient and we’re extremely excited for the long run.”

Decentralized exchanges like Uniswap on Ethereum or Raydium on Solana have develop into important to swapping property constructed on these particular blockchains, Catalog will allow customers to swap tokens on the identical chain or these on different chains in seconds.
By leveraging the Ren know-how that has already been used to course of virtually $10 billion in safe cross-chain swaps, Catalog advantages from the safe and sophisticated cryptography leveraged by Ren that creates secret non-public keys unknown to even the community itself.
