Project Introduction

Darwinia Network is a decentralized heterogeneous cross-chain bridge protocol built on Substrate, serves as critical infrastructure for interoperability across the blockchain networks. Darwinia Network focuses on decentralized cross-chain token swap, exchange, and market and enables single-chain application upgrade to cross-chain version, including Defi, Game, DEX, NFT market, and more. Its vision is to build the future Internet of Tokens.


Darwinia Network project started in late 2018 when Parity started the Substrate toolkit project.
Darwinia implements a decentralized network that acts as a chain relay between major blockchains and enables asset transfers in a decentralized and permissionless way without any need for custodians.
▪ Darwinia operates as Polkadot’s Parachain and has an ability to function as an independent network with its own consensus security and cross-chain functionality in case of Polkadot’s malfunctions.
▪ The team has developed an Application SDK based on Polkadot’s substrate and Darwinia Web applications in order to facilitate the development of different applications on the foundation of the Darwinia Network. This will allow to bootstrap the adoption and among non-blockchain users and developers.
▪ Darwinia has already launched MainNet.
▪ The Progressive Launch of Darwinia Mainnet has reached the third stage: the bi-directional “Darwinia-Ethereum Bridge.”

Key Features & Highlights

Darwinia Network is a decentralized cross-chain bridge network building on Substrate, the “Golden Gate Bridge Hub” of the cross-chain ecosystem. It provides the safest general bridge solution, connecting Polkadot, Ethereum, TRON, and other heterogeneous chains, realizing cross-chain assets transfer and public remote chain calls. As a bridging hub, any blockchain network connected to Darwinia can obtain cross-chain access to any other Darwinia connected networks without building direct bridges repeatedly on its own. Its main application areas include Defi, cross-chain NFT trading market, games, etc.
