OKC (OKX Chain)

OKC Testnet Now Supports IBC Protocol

We’re excited to announce that Cosmos’ IBC, an interoperability protocol that can facilitate users’ transfer of assets between different chains, has been implemented on OKC Testnet. More than 40 public chains such as Osmosis, Terra, and Juno support the IBC protocol. And now users can cross-chain their assets between OKC testnet and Gaia testnet(the Cosmos Hub is powered by the implementation that is called Gaia).

Another good news is that HoneyWood will join the OKC ecosystem in the near future, but first, the team will integrate the game with the OKC testnet and will be the first project to use the IBC transfer feature on the OKC testnet.

About HoneyWood
