Mission & Key Concepts

Axelar delivers secure cross-chain communication for Web3. Our infrastructure enables dApp users to interact with any asset or application, on any chain, with one click. Axelar is a blockchain that connects blockchains, enabling universal Web3 interoperability. The network is secured using proof-of-stake consensus, and messages are routed and translated using permissionless protocols. Axelar is like Stripe for Web3.


  • Excellence. Quality work speaks for itself. There is always a way to improve our work and ourselves. Give and receive feedback.
  • Ownership. Own a component of the project at all levels. Drive initiatives, seek feedback, educate others on it, make it better, iterate.
  • Curiosity. Be curious about what’s happening in the ecosystem, the project, and around the world. Don’t be shy to ask questions and ask for help at any point. Bring new ideas and initiatives forward.
