Dear community, here come Taxa’s monthly updates on ecosystem building, technology development, and community resources for August 2019.

Ecosystem:

Taxa and Harmony collaborate towards the holistic development of blockchain infrastructure

On August 20, Taxa announced to collaborate with Harmony, a high-throughput, low-latency, and low-fees consensus platform, towards the holistic development of the blockchain infrastructure. The collaboration will enable Taxa’s privacy-preserving, computationally powerful, highly developable smart contract engine on Harmony’s mainnet.

“We envision decentralized applications are to be built on a layered blockchain infrastructure in the future, where there are layer-1 projects such as Harmony storing states and values, and layer-2 projects such as Taxa and others which supplement or surcharge various functionalities, and upper layers such as interfaces and applications. With Taxa, developers shall be able to unlock whole new possibilities in DeFi, AI/machine learning, gaming, and many more,’’ said TF Guo, co-founder of Taxa.

Li Jiang who’s in charge of Business Development at Harmony reassured the vision by calling the collaboration a big step towards the holistic development of the blockchain infrastructure. “It enables both sets of developers to focus on their core expertise, and provide the best of both worlds to our users,” said Li.
