Understanding the Blocknet and Interoperability : A Reddit AMA on Friday 4th May
The Blocknet has been tackling the issue of interoperability for well over 3 years and is ahead of the curve on this issue. We recognized that interoperability was the key to to mainstream adoption of blockchain technology back in 2014.
Interoperability simply means cross-blockchain communication. When people hear the word “interoperability”, most don’t fully understand what it means, how it needs to be achieved or the impact it will have. That is why Blocknet team member Jeff Madgett will be hosting a week-long AMA to address these issues and answer any questions on this topic.
These questions will be answered on Friday the 4th May here. If you are posting a question directly on reddit, please use the thread above. If you are posting questions on Twitter, please use the hashtags #InteroperabilityAMA or #BlocknetAMA.
All other questions from around the web will also be added to the reddit AMA thread.
This is your chance to ask the most mature project in this space your questions about true connectivity between blockchains and what the future holds for Blocknet!
The aim of this AMA is to talk about what interoperability actually is, how it is sometimes misunderstood, how it will push blockchain technology into mainstream adoption and how the Blocknet has enabled true cross-chain communication. Blocknet has solved this problem and has been developing this technology for years and our achievements are starting to be recognised with NIX and Duality Solutions building on our platform to connect blockchains together. In addition, the first dapp built on this protocol is a decentralized exchange, BLOCK DX, which allows you to trade peer-to-peer, wallet-to-wallet with the coins you are trading in your control at all times and no third parties, intermediaries, and signups or accounts are ever involved.
