New York, Sept. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fusion Foundation, the non-profit organization building the next generation infrastructure for decentralized global finance, today announced it is partnering with technology consultant Hortis to fast-track adoption of the Fusion blockchain.

Hortis is a blockchain development house based in Switzerland that positioned itself as the leading technical resource for decentralized application development. With circa 40 projects exploring how to leverage Fusion’s DeFi development tools, Hortis is a strong addition to the Fusion support ecosystem. Hortis joins Stockup, Geneva University, Nimbus-t and others as a Swiss-based partner of Fusion, an area where the team is focused on establishing a significant presence.

“We are working to cement our position as a top-tier blockchain consultancy and are targeting projects like Fusion that we believe have immense potential,” said Christian Broillet, Senior Consultant at Hortis. “We look forward to providing our expertise to support the growing list of companies looking to build decentralized applications on Fusion’s interoperable architecture.”

Fusion’s MainNet that was custom built to tackle decentralized finance (DeFi) launched on the 30th of June and is currently running smoothly as it is supported by 300+ nodes. Innovative DeFi functions were built into the Fusion blockchain at the protocol layer to enable easy digitization, peer-to-peer swapping and time-value extraction. Another Fusion innovation known as Distributed Control Rights Management (DRCM) is slated for release in Q4 2019 and has the industry buzzing. DCRM purports to solve the industry wide problem of interoperability between blockchains. Fusion is on the hunt for technology providers to help serve the heavy demand for blockchain development resources.

“Hortis is another high-quality technology integrator excited to build on top of our infrastructure,” said Dejun Qian, CEO of Fusion. “We are thrilled to have technology partners jump on board to learn about our core infrastructure and development tools and support our growing list of partners.”
