On the flip side, Keep Network and Summa continue to progress with their trust-minimized ETH-BTC bridge (and the recently proposed ETH-ZEC bridge), which expands the list of opportunities for users of both Bitcoin and Ethereum. - The Syscoin Ethereum Bridge is a relatively unique piece of infrastructure. Check out the AMA Messari hosted with Syscoin to learn more about the inner workings on the bridge and how it differs from other interoperability efforts.
