Metis Integrates Chainlink’s Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol Amid Restaking Push

Metis, the recently surging Ethereum Layer 2, has teamed up with Chainlink to build out cross-chain interoperability, while also embracing the booming staking sector.

Announced on Feb. 29, Metis has integrated support for Chainlink’s cross-chain interoperability protocol (CCIP) as its canonical token bridge infrastructure.

The Metis bridge interface will integrate support for CCIP as part of the deal, unlocking new multi-chain utilities for the network. Metis will initially focus on bridging leading stablecoins from the Ethereum mainnet, such as Ethena Labs’s yield-bearing  eUSD token.

The integration will also reduce the delay on transfers from Metis to Ethereum from seven days to “minutes,” and also enable programmable token transfers.
