Chainlink and Arbitrum Launch Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) on Arbitrum One
Chainlink, the renowned Web3 services platform, and Arbitrum, the leading layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum decentralized applications (dApps), have unveiled the mainnet launch of the Chainlink Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) on Arbitrum One. This milestone represents a major leap forward in enhancing the interoperability of blockchain networks, offering Web3 developers a secure and user-friendly means to create applications that can communicate, transfer tokens, and execute actions across various blockchains.
CCIP, underpinned by Chainlink’s decentralized oracle networks, introduces a new era of cross-chain capabilities, building on the platform’s impressive track record of securing billions of dollars and facilitating over $8 trillion in on-chain transaction value. With a strong focus on developer ease of use and robust security through the Risk Management Network, CCIP is poised to revolutionize the way applications interact with different blockchains.
Built with multiple layers of decentralization, CCIP provides Arbitrum developers with unrivaled cross-chain security for unlocking the next wave of dApps and Web3 use cases.#CCIPSummerhttps://t.co/GiT21yfqNm

Johann Eid, Chief Business Officer at Chainlink Labs, emphasized the importance of layer 2 solutions like Arbitrum in alleviating transaction congestion within the Ethereum ecosystem. He stated, “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.”
Arbitrum One, an optimistic rollup solution for Ethereum, is renowned for its high throughput and low-cost dApps. The integration of CCIP introduces the ability for developers to construct their own cross-chain dApps with Arbitrary Messaging and Simplified Token Transfers, further enhancing composability around assets on the Arbitrum network. This combination unlocks a plethora of use cases, including cross-chain tokenized assets, collateral management, gaming, data storage, and computation. Several projects, including BetSwirl, Galaxis, Stafi, Raft, Polychain Monsters, and more, are already in the process of integrating Chainlink CCIP on Arbitrum.
A.J. Warner, Chief Strategy Officer at Offchain Labs, expressed enthusiasm about the benefits CCIP will bring to the growing Arbitrum One ecosystem. He noted, “Builders and applications on Arbitrum now have access to the CCIP Network, providing a secure, reliable, and easy-to-use solution for developers.”
CCIP has been gaining traction since its Mainnet Early Access launch in July, with industry leaders like Synthetix and Aave as early adopters. Swift, the global provider of secure financial messaging services, also partnered with Chainlink on a series of experiments to demonstrate the seamless transfer of tokenized value across multiple public and private blockchains, showcasing the protocol’s versatility.
