Back in December, ICON, Aion and Wanchain announced the Blockchain Interoperability Alliance, with “the shared goal of promoting interconnectivity between the isolated blockchain networks.”
Now we’re seeing what that means in practical terms as ICON and Aion get protocol-level integration into CryptoCurve.
In case you’ve not heard of CryptoCurve (we hadn’t), it’s a blockchain product and service provider commonly known as the “front-end” of Wanchain. Essentially, this move completes CryptoCurves’s integration across the Blockchain Interoperability Alliance.
CryptoCurve focuses on creating user-driven products and programs aimed at spreading blockchain technology. Their ecosystem is comprised of the Curve Wallet, Curve Labs and CurveSDK, a developer ecosystem that provides technology, tools, and resources to build sophisticated blockchain applications.
What’s all this mean for ICON? First, users of Curve Wallet will be able to transact, store and trade ICON- (and Aion)-based assets. Developers under CurveSDK will be able to build standardized, interconnected apps that should work across the Blockchain Interoperability Alliance.
This should ultimately make it easier for ICON to bring new DAPPs to their existing users.
“Our longstanding partnership with Wanchain has helped us build our applications to be natively interoperable, and this new integration with Aion and ICON will open a lot of new doors for us in terms of scaling and expanding our ecosystem for our users.” said CryptoCurve Founder and CEO Joshua Halferty.
The project is set to be fully compatible with Aion by the end of October. ICON integration is stated to begin soon… which means it hasn’t started yet. We’ll keep an eye on this and give you updates!
But if you can’t wait for our next article for updates, Halferty and Wanchain VP of Communications Oliver Birch have decided to host a Reddit AMA, which is currently live and will close at 13:00 UTC on October 24th.
