The 1st native cross-chain DEX protocol based on Polkadot.

What is Zenlink?

Zenlink is a decentralized cross-chain liquidity protocol aimed at enhancing interoperability across various blockchains within and outside the Polkadot ecosystem. It facilitates the connection between different DeFi ecosystems, enabling seamless asset swaps, liquidity provision, and yield farming activities across multiple chains.

Key Features of Zenlink:

  • Cross-Chain Liquidity Sharing: Zenlink addresses the issue of isolated liquidity pools by facilitating the movement of assets and liquidity between diverse blockchains. This improves swap rates and reduces slippage for users.
  • DEX Aggregator: The protocol aggregates liquidity from various decentralized exchanges (DEXs) across Polkadot parachains, ensuring that users receive the best trading rates without the need to manually compare different platforms.
  • Seamless Integration: Built on the Substrate framework, Zenlink can be easily integrated with any Substrate-based blockchain and can extend to external blockchains through bridges, promoting a more interconnected DeFi environment.
  • ZLK Token: Zenlink’s native utility token, ZLK, is used for governance, allowing token holders to influence the protocol’s development and operation. The ZLK token also incentivizes user participation in the ecosystem.


Zenlink aims to provide a unified and efficient DeFi experience by linking disparate blockchain platforms and enhancing the flow of assets and liquidity across the ecosystem.
