The value proposition of the pNetwork protocol is to create a seamless multi-chain world for dApps and crypto enthusiasts. pNetwork is focused on creating connections across blockchains, sidechains and L2 networks with a unique user-friendly process.
Since 2020, pNetwork has continuously evolved with pNetwork v1/v2 having processed more than $1 Billion volume in cross-chain transactions!
pNetwork powers connections among 15 blockchain environments, including major networks such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Algorand, BNB chain, Polygon, Arbitrum and several EOS-like chains.
Thanks to the large variety of networks supported, pNetwork is established on a large number of ecosystems and has built relationships with several projects in each of these environments.

Thanks to its flexible design, pNetwork serves a variety of verticals including the DeFi ecosystem, the NFT space and the on-chain gaming industry.
Currently, pNetwork’s main target market is the DeFi ecosystem that is being tackled via its pTokens feature.
pTokens are “wrapped” tokens designed to maintain a 1-to-1 peg in between the native blockchain and the host blockchain (e.g. Bitcoins wrapped to operate on the Ethereum blockchain).
The protocol enables cross-chain connections both for mainstream assets and smaller tokens.
Focusing on the mainstream assets $BTC and Stablecoins, specific new features have been recently released to enhance the experience while bridging them across blockchains. These include:
- native-to-native cross-chain swaps for Stablecoins that are natively available on multiple blockchains
- pTokens-to-pTokens bridge for $BTC to enable the direct movement of the wrapped asset from a host blockchain to another host blockchain
