StellaSwap Partners with Wormhole to Rebuild Liquidity on Moonbeam

Why Wormhole

  1. Moonwell Governance Vote: Moonwell community governance enabled the broader Moonbeam ecosystem, including StellaSwap, to poll users for their bridge preference through a snapshot vote on the preferred bridge. Wormhole was the overwhelming favourite, amassing 66% of the total votes.
  2. Security & Financial Coverage as the Over-Arching Factors: The second major consideration was our own internal evaluation of the most optimal bridge choice based on our analysis, which pointed to Wormhole based on two main factors; security and financial coverage. As StellaSwap was at ground 0 for Nomad’s exploit, we fully understood the need for a robust security framework and the importance of financial coverage in making users whole in the event of an exploit.
