    Talking cross-chain messaging with Anna Carroll from Nomad

    Talking cross-chain messaging with Anna Carroll from Nomad

    A conversation about Nomad with Anna Carrol and Aron Fischer

    Nomad (nomad.xyz / @nomadxyz_) is a cross-chain messaging protocol. Unlike token bridges, it is designed to relay arbitrary messages between chains. It enables the development of natively cross-chain applications, i.e. apps that live on multiple blockchains simultaneously, seamlessly and securely moving data between them.

    To better understand the vision, and the design principles that underpin the system, I sat down with Anna Carrol - protocol lead at Nomad - for a deep dive into the tech.
