According to the team, this move is aimed at providing Base developers with secure solutions for creating applications. Once the cross-chain protocol is launched, it is expected that users will be able to send messages, transfer tokens, and initiate other transactions across multiple networks.
Let us remind you that on August 9, 2023, the Coinbase crypto exchange launched the Base L2 network. A few days later, the number of active mainnet users exceeded 100,000.
Chainlink Labs reported that decentralized oracle networks have secured billions of dollars of assets and contributed to more than $8 trillion in on-chain transaction value.
In July 2023, as part of its early access phase, Chainlink introduced a cross-chain protocol designed to run applications on various networks, including Arbitrum, Avalanche, Ethereum, Optimism and Polygon. According to the developers, the projects Raft, Nuon, Folks Finance and Polychain Monsters have already integrated Chainlink CCIP into L2 networks.
In September 2023, the number of daily transactions on the Base network surpassed Arbitrum and Optimism, according to The Block.

Subsequently, a Coinbase representative stated that they were not ruling out the possibility of creating a Base token.
