About Overline

Description Overline is a blockchain protocol that enables applications built for truly decentralized finance (DeFi), including Overline’s custom, peer-to-peer exchange platform the Interchange. Overline connects disparate blockchains, like Bitcoin and Ethereum, into a unified “multichain”, capable of interoperability and cross-chain communication, all powered by a mineable network and not centralized validators, APIs, or oracles.

The team behind Overline is a global group of economics-minded engineers, who committed to building the future of decentralized financial technology the right way. If you have passion and motivation to work on complicated, but visionary projects we would like to have a chat with you!
