Dearest Troll,

It is with great pleasure to inform you that today is the day Tidal Finance joins the OpenSwap Bridge Founder Program as the official 7th bridge founder 🎉🎉🎉!

More information about our Bridge Founder Program can be found here.

TIDAL is a decentralized discretionary mutual cover protocol that offers the DeFi community the ability to hedge against the failure of any DeFi protocol or asset.

Mutual cover pools can be created where users can serve as Reserve Providers (RPs) and stake their stables to provide reserve capital to any pool to reap incentives in stable coin premium or the $TIDAL token.

How This Partnership Benefits Tidal Finance and OpenSwap

It was during OpenSwap’s post-IDO period that we first got to nurture the initial strategic partnership with Tidal Finance. Now for trolls of you who remember, Liquidity Queue was OpenSwap’s first key technology that was rolled out right after the IDO held on Impossible Finance. Tidal became OpenSwap’s main insurance partner covering for any potential losses from our Liquidity Queues and protecting users from exploits and loss of funds.

What OpenSwap Bridge Mainnet Release mean for the Tidal Finance Community?

Tidal Finance community greatly benefits from OpenSwap any-to-any swaps, enabling the users to take full advantage of crosschain bridge and hybrid smart router integration, $TIDAL will be exposed to liquidity from all our supporting chains.

In other words, OpenSwap ANY-to-ANY Crosschain Bridge will help $TIDAL gain additional exposure to more liquidity from different chains, thus increasing user adoption and potentially creating additional demand. As aforementioned, while Tidal Finance benefits from this partnership by having additional liquidity access points, this partnership will also benefit the entire DeFi world as OpenSwap Bridge will ultimately help to have more DApps be insured and protected by Tidal.

In the future, OpenSwap is going to support more chains, our Stablecoin vaults can also serve as middlemen for $TIDAL holders, helping them to bridge their tokens across multiple chains.
