Inter-Realm Transfers

2 min readMar 28


Users can now transfer assets between Isolated Realms and execute interest-rate swaps through one-click zaps.

What are Realms?

One of Bastion’s main differentiating product features is Isolated Realms. Realms enable full-stack customizability of asset parameters, acts as a sandbox for experimentation with innovative oracle and interest-rate mechanisms, broaden the horizon for DAO-To-DAO partnerships with Bastion, and allows us to list the long-tail of assets. Isolated pools are separate lending markets which support a set of assets that can be used as collateral to borrow loans against each other.

Despite all the immense net-positive advantages of risk isolation, our Realms feature has a single weakness: liquidity fragmentation. Users are not be able to directly collateralize and borrow assets from the Main Hub and the Aurora Realm. Bastion remedies this by having USDC in all our Realms, creating a common currency of exchange between all the Realms whilst still containing value-at-risk to the isolated pool rather than the entire TVL of the protocol.

Uniting Liquidity through Inter-Realm Transfers

Today, we are leveraging our Swap interface to unite liquidity between our Realms!

Smooth, intuitive user experiences are a pillar of Bastion’s product offering. We are excited to simplify multi-step transactions through one-click zaps and elegant interfaces which help users optimize their portfolios.
