Minting pools

Minting pools are used by AgoraDEX to execute cross-chain swaps. They kick in when you need to swap a token to a chain where such token does not exist natively.

For example, you may need to bridge ETH tokens from its native Ethereum blockchain to Ultra. Agora is going to lock ETH on its native chain, while minting new ETH tokens on Ultra.

This process does not need additional liquidity from the user, as the process is done automatically, moving de fact the value from one chain to another, without danger of double spending.
