A bridge is a technology that connects two blockchains. Communication between blockchain platforms is necessary for the convenience of users: the owner of tokens of one blockchain can transfer them to another network, where the transaction speed is higher, and the commission for its implementation is lower. The transfer of tokens does not take place literally, but with the help of wrapped tokens.

Bridges became essential in DeFi, because decentralized finance was designed as a single ecosystem, while the creators of various platforms competed in the unique qualities of their products and the task of compatibility was not intended.
