We are thrilled to share with our community that the Interchain Foundation (ICF), a forerunner in decentralized technologies, awarded Persistence One a grant to develop Interchain Standards (ICS) for Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and Metadata. Persistence One, with its strong expertise in building interchain operable technology, has been one of the most active contributors in the Cosmos ecosystem.

The Interchain Foundation has been leading efforts for the advancement of Interoperability which has recently become a major catalyst for the rapid growth of the cryptocurrency industry.

Persistence One’s mission is to bridge the gap between DeFi and Traditional finance by bringing in real-world assets on to the Blockchain. Real-world assets are tokenized using NFTs. These NFTs can then be used as collateral to borrow cryptoassets (stablecoins). Persistence One was one of the first teams to build out a native interchain NFT transfer.
