Wanchain Adds OKC to Decentralized Cross-Chain Infrastructure
Most blockchains today operate independently, making them walled gardens in the sense that the activities that occur in one blockchain cannot be shared with others. The reason for this is the heterogeneous nature of sovereign blockchains as well as the fact that they each maintain their own consensus system and ledger. And this is why we’re glad to announce that Wanchain, a decentralized blockchain interoperability solution with a mission to drive blockchain adoption through interoperability by bridging the world’s many siloed blockchain networks, now supports OKC.
By joining OKC, Wanchain’s unique, non-custodial cross-chain bridges will bring new assets and liquidity to OKC’s vibrant ecosystem of projects and applications. These bridges will also create new use cases for OKT in other ecosystems.
Initially, the following blockchains will be bridged directly to OKC: Avalanche, BNB Chain, Ethereum, Polygon, Wanchain, and XDC Network. The asset routes will include
We hope OKC ecosystem projects will use Wanchain’s cross-chain blockchain infrastructure to create new value and use cases for their users by harnessing the power of cross-chain technology.
Wanchain is both a sustainable Layer 1 PoS blockchain and a decentralized wide area network of blockchains. The Wanchain Layer 1 PoS blockchain is a full Ethereum-like environment that works with industry-standard Ethereum tools, DAPPs, and protocols. Wanchain’s wide area network of blockchains is a decentralized system of direct, non-custodial cross-chain bridges that connect both EVM and non-EVM networks without requiring any centralized intermediaries. These bridges use a combination of Secure Multiparty Computation (sMPC) and Shamir’s Secret Sharing to secure overcollateralized cross-chain assets. Currently, more than 15 Layer 1 and Layer 2 networks are connected by Wanchain’s wide area network of blockchains including but not limited to Arbitrum, Avalanche C-Chain, Bitcoin, BNB Chain, Ethereum, Fantom, Litecoin, Polkadot Relay Chain, Polygon, XDC Network, XRP Ledger and now OKC. The addition of OKC reinforces Wanchain’s position as the world’s most advanced cross-chain solution.
OKC is a secure & programmable smart contracts platform for next-generation decentralized applications, backed by OKX, one of the largest crypto exchanges. The technology built into the chain was designed for high-performance Dapps with lower cost, making it a great match for many DeFi protocols, NFTs, and other Metaverse applications. Based on enhanced Tendermint and Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) consensus that can support up to 4000 Transactions per Second (TPS), DeFi (decentralized finance) applications shall reach their full potential at extremely low cost. Wanchain’s decentralized cross-chain bridges expand the possibilities for developers.
The future is interoperable — Wanchain, the Wide Area Network chain, is the world’s premier decentralized blockchain interoperability solution. Our mission is to drive blockchain adoption through interoperability by building fully decentralized bridges that connect the world’s many siloed blockchain networks. This cross-chain infrastructure empowers developers to build truly decentralized cross-chain applications to power the future of Web3.
