We are excited to announce a strategic partnership between Catalyst and Eclipse, aimed at bringing permissionless connection and liquidity to rollups. Catalyst is a leading provider of permissionless liquidity layer for the modular future, while Eclipse is a customisable rollup provider designed for developers building some of blockchain's most unique use cases.
With this partnership, Eclipse will benefit from Catalyst's liquidity layer by offering users more features, including empowering Eclipse rollups to connect with other rollups and ecosystems permissionlessly, providing fast-finality liquidity for Eclipse rollups, and establishing a mechanism for token swaps between rollups.
Eclipse's novel architecture enables developers to deploy customisable chains without the hassle of managing infrastructure and security. One of the virtual machine options offered by Eclipse is the Solana (Sealevel) virtual machine, which means that any tooling you can use with Solana, you can also use with Eclipse. Additionally, developers can deploy Ethereum virtual machine (EVM) chains with Eclipse, allowing tooling like Foundry, Metamask, and Alchemy to work out-of-the-box.
The partnership between Catalyst and Eclipse will create a perfect world for developers, where they can spin up their own customisable blockchain-as-a-service, and connect with any other chain permissionlessly. With Catalyst's liquidity layer and Eclipse's customisable rollups, we aim to create a more accessible and inclusive blockchain ecosystem, where developers can build on any chain they choose, and users can access any application on any chain they are on.
