Launched in July 2020, Multichain (Previously Anyswap) is a fully decentralized cross-chain swap protocol based on Fusion DCRM technology, with automated pricing and liquidity system.
The network was initially created to service the needs of different blockchains enabling them to communicate with each other seamlessly. With the rapid advancement into Web 3, Anyswap sought to position itself as a leading blockchain network in providing a fast, secure, inexpensive, and reliable way to exchange value between DeFi chains. That is the main reason it adopted the “Multichain” title.
Multichain’s seamless flow of value is backed by Fusion’s Decentralized Control Rights Management (DRCM), a product that enables the network to better manage token flow between networks. Today the network features its own Decentralized Exchange (DEX) and a native governance token called MULTI.

Number of Releases
Several releases have been rolled out to boost Multichain’s performance and interoperability. Whereas there have been other releases in past years, some of the most important ones-interestingly-have come this year.
In April, the network released “AnyCall,” a cross-chain Message Router Protocol that enables users to send cross-chain messages and contracts with just one transaction. The product is secured by Mult-chain nodes enabling users to send arbitrary data such as NFTs, smart contracts and tokes between different blockchains with just a single click.
In May, the network released two major products. First, there was the veMULTI mainnet on May 9th 2022, enabling MULTI holders to mint veMULTI NFT and giving them the authority to vote on Multichain community proposals.
On May 24 2022, Multichain released “Fiver for Gas” a one-stop cross-chain gas swap that enables the direct swap from users’ DAI on source chain to gas tokens on destination chains. This feature promises smoother cross-chain transactions for users.
