Composable’s vision for Picasso is that it becomes an environment where the community is able to add various features and products directly into the runtime of the chain. That is, being able to be the chain in the Kusama and Polkadot ecosystems that allow for the integration of pallets into…


We recently launched Mosaic’s Proof of Concept (PoC) and are currently collecting valuable data to help improve user experience as cross-chain and cross-layer token swaps are made. …


Our cross-layer transferral system Mosaic is currently in its Proof of Concept phase. Here, we look ahead to the next step of Mosaic: deploying a minimum viable product that users can leverage for moving assets between a multitude of L2s, providing an unprecedented level of opportunity and flexibility in the DeFi space. To support these cross-layer transactions at scale, we also propose a novel bot-based active liquidity provisioning process, as detailed here.

As previously announced, the first phase of Mosaic is a Proof of Concept (PoC), with transfers supported by a passive manner of providing liquidity into a layer 1 (L1) liquidity pool. We will release data based on the performance of our dynamic fee model from the POC as we begin…


After recently expanding liquidity provisioning in Mosaic to include SushiSwap LP tokens, the team at Composable Labs has identified a new way to leverage these assets to earn liquidity providers more yield.

With Mosaic’s Proof of Concept (PoC) well underway, the team at Composable Labs is ramping up its research…


Composable is continually striving to discover the best way to optimize cross-layer liquidity provisioning (LPing) while also optimizing fees. These metrics are a key focus of our research related to Mosaic and its Proof of Concept (PoC), the Polygon-Arbitrum Cross-Layer Transferral System.

Through the research endeavors here at Composable Labs…


Composable Labs introduces another essential cross-layer functionality under its development: the swapping of non-fungible tokens across different L2s, powered by Mosaic.

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are emerging as a popular and powerful tool in decentralized finance and beyond. However, while their uniqueness is a large driver beyond this growing use, it…


Our upcoming proof-of-concept (PoC) launch includes a dynamic fee structure that we would like to dive deeper into at this point. We have been running different simulations, and our team has recommended modifying the fee structure that we initially proposed for the PoC.

A lot of those simulations will be…


In this article, we present one of the main features of our cross-layer transferral system, Mosaic, and take a deep-dive into the steps it takes in ensuring appropriate liquidity across layer 2 (L2) protocols via an L1 farming vault. Through this novel process, we can provide a lucrative liquidity provisioning (LPing) opportunity, as indicated through our simulations. Looking forward, we will shortly host a Proof of Concept bridging Arbitrum, Polygon, and L1, enabling us to identify the optimal approach to the pressing cross-layer liquidity question.

Composable is eager to begin leveraging Mosaic to tackle a significant industry-wide challenge: creating an optimized method of liquidity provisioning (LPing) for cross-layer transfers.


The intention of Picasso is to serve as a testing ground for teams to build with our primitives, and deliver a comprehensive DeFi ecosystem. In line with this effort, we are pleased to announce a project building on Picasso that is being developed by a team that is working in…


Composable Labs is excited to announce the addition of a vaults pallet as a core infrastructure for the decentralized finance future we are driving on Polkadot and Kusama.

In DeFi, vaults offer critical functionality in powering all sorts of applications. Therefore, the second pallet Composable is creating for our infrastructure (following our oracle pallet, Apollo) is for vaults. The concept of a vault pallet does not currently exist in Polkadot. …
