Welcome to Protocol Weekly: Aion
Aion is a smart contract platform that helps developers decentralize aspects of their applications. Their primary focus is on the scalability of their standalone blockchain, interoperability between blockchains and approachable documentation for web developers.
What problem does it solve?
Much of the internet’s underlying infrastructure is broken, the result is a playground where web goliaths soak up data to feed manipulation machines that put us in the passenger seat of our own lives. Aion provides developers with a whole new way of creating applications – applications powered by new open source infrastructure that entrenches user data ownership, gives your application censorship resistant qualities, and allows developers to use inclusive, incentive aligned business models.
How does this help the community?
If you’re a developer looking to build decentralized applications that real users can interact with at scale — we’re here to help. If you’ve been bitten by the ‘decentralization bug’ — get involved in the project.
