BIFROST Launches Biport Wallet, Opening a Gateway to True Multichain DeFi for Crypto Users




BIFROST, the world’s first blockchain middleware that enables true multichain connectivity, announced the launch of Biport Wallet, a universal passport to the multichain world of decentralized finance (DeFi). Open-source and decentralized, Biport Wallet seamlessly connects to multiple blockchain networks, enabling crypto users to manage multiple cryptocurrencies, all in one place. Currently supporting cryptocurrencies across blockchain networks including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Avalanche, and Klaytn, Biport Wallet is designed from the ground up to offer the most seamless and secure multichain experience, democratizing access to the world of DeFi.

One Wallet, All Chains

Despite users’ needs for easy-to-use digital asset wallets, most wallets today require connection to Ethereum-based tokens first, adding a layer of complexity for ordinary users with little knowledge of the blockchain network. Furthermore, general digital asset wallets typically do not allow users to remit and store cryptocurrencies beyond Ethereum ERC-20 tokens, and this results in scalability issues, limiting the potential growth of the general DeFi ecosystem.

With Biport Wallet, these pain points associated with most digital asset wallets are resolved — users can send, receive, and store a wide range of digital assets without compromising on convenience and security.

Biport Wallet also reduces user friction that exists when performing multichain transactions for digital assets, enabling users to access fundamental peer-to-peer (P2P) services and multichain features that allow for the storage and management of a wide range of Bitcoin, ERC-20, BEP20, and C-Chain tokens.


Key features of Biport Wallet include:

Multichain Connectivity

Biport features true multichain connectivity, enabling users to manage a diverse portfolio of cryptocurrencies across different blockchains all in one place. With Biport’s multichain capabilities, users will be able to send, receive, and store a wide range of assets across networks in a secure environment, bringing unrivalled convenience and peace of mind. Biport initially supports Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain (BSC), Avalanche, and Bitcoin.

MetaMask Support

Biport Wallet will support MetaMask, one of the most widely used decentralized wallets today. With the MetaMask Support feature, users will be able to access and use all DApps that support MetaMask, providing users with a broad range of protocols spanning Uniswap, SushiSwap, Compound, Aave, and many more.

BiFi Accessibility

Biport Wallet will be integrated with BiFi, the first DeFi to connect Bitcoin and Ethereum networks and offer native Bitcoin lending. With true multichain connectivity, users will be able to directly deposit assets to BiFi Lending pool from the wallet to earn interest as well as BiFi tokens to maximize yield.

Commenting on the launch of Biport Wallet, Dohyun Park, CEO & Co-Founder of BIFROST, said: “Blockchain has changed the fabric of our financial system in less than a decade. Yet despite the compelling advantages of the technology, there are still many inherent challenges that hold it back from achieving its true potential. As we envision a truly interoperable DeFi landscape, the launch of Biport Wallet marks an important milestone in fulfilling our mission of providing efficient, convenient, yet secure DeFi products for all users — whether it’s early adopters, advanced traders, or new users.”


One Vision for the Ultimate Multichain Experience

Earlier this year, BIFROST also launched BiFi, the world’s first native Bitcoin lending on Decentralized Finance (DeFi), connecting both the Bitcoin and Ethereum networks. Fully integrated with Biport Wallet,  users will be able to easily access digital asset deposit and loan services through BIFI, allowing for enhanced connectivity. To provide users with greater accessibility across the DeFi ecosystem, Biport Wallet will also be integrated with the entirety of BIFROST and BIFI products in the coming months.

“At BIFROST, we are committed to developing innovative products that not only solves the pain points for users looking to participate in DeFi, but also engineer reliable products with security and scalability in mind. As we continue to create a multichain decentralized infrastructure that allows capital to flow seamlessly across blockchains, our innovation will not stop here — with Biport Wallet as a gateway to crypto, DeFi, NFTs, and GameFi, we will continue to bring the latest developments and the best features to our users, bringing the best multichain experience for all users,” Park added.

Legal Luminary Sarah Brennan Champions Pioneering Crypto Regulation Approaches




Sarah Brennan, an accomplished figure in corporate and securities law, serves as General Counsel at Delphi Ventures, focusing on investments in the Web3 space. With over 14 years of experience in securities law and a deep involvement in digital assets since 2017, Brennan also co-leads LeXpunK, a collective dedicated to establishing legal frameworks for decentralized digital communities.

In a candid interview with a prominent cryptocurrency news outlet, Brennan discussed various critical topics. She addressed the emergence of crypto super PACs, funded significantly by major firms like Ripple and Circle, to counter strict SEC regulations. Brennan viewed the SAB 121 bill, backed by the US administration, as potentially isolating the crypto community from broader financial integration.

While acknowledging the influence of centralized entities in advocating for crypto interests, Brennan cautioned against replicating traditional financial hierarchies within the crypto sphere, which contradicts its revolutionary ethos. She expressed concerns about monopolistic scenarios that could dominate the crypto landscape, exerting excessive control over essential industry components and traditional financial operations.

Regarding regulatory challenges, Brennan advocated for tailored regulations to manage systemic risks posed by large centralized crypto institutions. She criticized the current regulatory opacity and inconsistency, which she believes have fostered suboptimal business practices. Through LeXpunK, Brennan endeavors to pioneer experimental legal structures that could redefine regulatory compliance for token issuances, though reception from policymakers has been lukewarm.


Looking ahead, Brennan emphasizes the need for proactive regulatory approaches using antitrust measures to prevent crypto monopolies, promote decentralization, and target bad actors. However, she highlighted the persistent communication gap between crypto-literate legal advocates and hesitant regulators as a significant obstacle.

Brennan continues to drive forward her mission through new advocacy platforms aimed at shaping the future of cryptographic regulation, navigating complexities to ensure balanced and effective regulatory frameworks in the evolving crypto landscape.

Italy Ramps Up Crypto Oversight in Line with MiCA




Italy is preparing to strengthen its oversight of cryptocurrency markets to align with the European Union’s Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) regulatory framework. This initiative, initially enacted in 2022, aims to impose stricter monitoring of digital asset markets, particularly targeting insider trading and market manipulation. Under the new decree, fines ranging from 5,000 to 5 million euros ($5,400 to $5.4 million) will be imposed based on the severity of violations, reinforcing compliance and market integrity.

For blockchain firms and decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols, MiCA presents significant challenges. These entities must decide between fully decentralizing their networks or complying with MiCA’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations. Fully decentralized networks are exempt from reporting requirements but risk non-compliance if they employ foundations or intermediaries moderating communities.

Centralized exchanges like Binance are adapting to MiCA by categorizing stablecoins as authorized or unauthorized, aligning with regulatory requirements without delisting these assets from spot markets. Uphold has similarly adjusted by delisting certain stablecoins for compliance purposes.

Despite regulatory pressures, experts are optimistic about stablecoins’ future. Figures like Jeremy Allaire, CEO of Circle, predict stablecoins could represent 10% of the money supply within a decade. They anticipate widespread adoption driven by benefits such as financial inclusion, lower remittance costs, and seamless cross-border commerce via public blockchains.


This regulatory framework underscores the transformative potential of stablecoins and blockchain technology within the global financial system.
