# Cross-Chain Bridges

CroSwap will provide the ability to bridge between the Cronos Blockchain to other Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) Compatible blockchains.

# What Are Bridges?

Blockchain bridges work just like the bridges we know in the physical world. Just as a physical bridge connects two physical locations, a blockchain bridge connects two blockchain ecosystems. Bridges facilitate communication between blockchains through the transfer of information and assets.

# Scaling Fee Reduction

  • If you hold $SHIP, your services fees while using the Cross-Chain Bridge will be reduced.
  • How this works:
    • Our formula will be the product's base service fee minus the maximum amount of the reduced service fee.
    • The amount of tokens that will be included within the scale is from 0 to 20,000.
    • The absolute maximum fee reduction that you can get is 50% of the product's base service fee.
