The Axelar Virtual Machine is a programmable interoperability layer that automates complex multi-chain deployment and management. The Axelar VM helps developers to span the whole of Web3, as if they were building on a single chain. It is powered by Cosmwasm and turns interoperability into a programmable layer. With the help of the Axelar Virtual Machine, developers can write smart contracts on Axelar, while scaling their interchain deployments and “programming” the cross-chain networking layer.
It consists of the following tools (more will be added):
Interchain Amplifier: A simple, permissionless way to connect a new chain with the Axelar network and all of its interconnected chains.
Interchain Maestro: A solution that enables developers to orchestrate multi-chain deployments for a dApp – comparable to Kubernetes for Web3.
