- The Chainlink’s CCIP enables web3 developers to build secure and scalable cross-chain payment protocols.
- By combining Chainlink’s CCIP and Arbitrum one, developers can unlock more liquidity on the leading Ethereum-based layer two scaling solution.
The Chainlink (LINK) ecosystem has continued to prove its long-term utility in the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry by providing reliable oracles to Web3 developers. In a bid to ensure a sustainable multi-chain communication, the LINK core developers introduced the Chainlink Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) to enable Web3 entrepreneurs to securely interface between blockchain.
Moreover, billions of dollars worth of digital assets have been lost through poorly designed multi-chain bridge protocols.
The Chainlink’s CCIP mainnet went live in July with AAVE and Synthetix among the early adopters. Other notable web3 users of the Chainlink Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol mainnet include BetSwirl, Galaxis, Stafi, Raft, and Polychain Monsters, among many others.
Chainlink’s CCIP Meets Ethereum’s Arbitrum Network
After months of meticulous efforts, the mainnet of the Chainlink Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol has been launched on the Arbitrum One, an optimistic rollup for the Ethereum ecosystem that powers high-throughput and low-cost DApps.
According to the announcement, the integration of Chainlink’s CCIP with Arbitrum One will help web3 Dapps developers unlock a variety of use cases including cross-chain tokenized assets, scalable gamifi, and reliable data storage.

According to Johann Eid, the Chief Business Officer at Chainlink Labs, the integration of CCIP with Arbitrum is a crucial component for the mainstream adoption of blockchain technology. Moreover, the future of blockchain technology is highly pegged to the ability to securely communicate with different chains at scale. Eid noted.
“Layer 2s like Arbitrum play an important role in offloading transaction congestion and enabling developers to constructively build in the Ethereum ecosystem. CCIP now gives these users access to a highly secure and easy-to-use interoperability protocol built on Chainlink’s time-tested infrastructure, powering cross-chain smart contracts in a way that will open up new avenues of growth, accessibility, and innovation,”
Similar sentiments were expressed by A.J. Warner, the Chief Strategy Officer at Offchain Labs, who added that DeFi developers on the Arbitrum ecosystem enjoy a ton of benefits by simply tapping on Chainlink’s CCIP for scalability to global markets.
Founded earlier this year, the Arbitrum network has attracted more than 400 DeFi projects with a total value locked (TVL) of about $1.73 billion and a stablecoins market capitalization of approximately $1.63 billion.
The integration of Chainlink’s CCIP and Arbitrum One is expected to have a long-lasting impact on the underlying digital assets. Moreover, more on-chain activity is expected to be recorded as Arbitrum developers tap on CCIP to scale their projects.
According to the latest crypto market data, Chainlink (LINK) price has gained about 10 percent in the past week to trade around $6.72 on Friday. Arbitrum (ARB), on the other hand, exchanged around 84 cents after rallying about 4.4 percent in the past seven days.
