You can get away through any protocol conversation in crypto by saying "But its not composable bro" like you did when you just added zk to the bio or name of your project at the start of 2023 but like everything interesting but overhyped Composability is just known and there is a chasm of difference between knowing and understanding something.
In the rapidly changing world of the Web3 ecosystem, a variety of blockchains and layer solutions have come up, each with its own way of ensuring security and trust. This multi-chain setup, driven by the ongoing challenge of scalability, is more than just a trend—it's a new reality that's here to stay.
However, as these different blockchains continue to grow, they face a common problem - they work in isolation, unable to talk to each other natively. This is where interoperability becomes important. At the heart of this interoperability are cross-chain bridges: smart systems that act as connectors. They help in the smooth transfer of different kinds of data – from assets and contract activations to proofs and state changes – across different blockchain networks. In this article, we will explore the details of these bridges, the complexities in their design, and what the future holds for them.
The primary objective of this post is to illustrate that tokens held on various blockchain networks through different bridges exhibit distinct security profiles and values, despite the fact that their purpose is to represent the same underlying assets.
TLDR; Usage of coincidences of wants in cross-chain transfers might help reduce gas fees and wait time
