DeFi ecosystem of decentralized apps is rapidly advancing in the usage of blockchain bridges.

A bridge is a tool that connects two separate blockchain networks or applications, allowing the transfer of assets between different blockchains without the need for a centralized intermediary. This can be useful in situations where different blockchain systems have diverse capabilities, or where it is necessary to move assets between blockchains in order to take advantage of certain features or services.

Bridges can help with the seamless flow of cryptocurrencies and data across layer 1 and layer 2 networks, and can be unidirectional (only one way) or bidirectional (two-way transactions).
