Wanchain announced WanLabs at the World Blockchain Forum in Dubai today. WanLabs is an international blockchain accelerator and incubator powered by Wanchain.
WanLabs will fuel the projects with mentorship, resources and support throughout the different stages of development. WanLabs is creating an ecosystem to accelerate the next generation of quality blockchain startups.
Today Wanchain announced the first six projects that will be channelled through WanLabs. Wanchain will also announce the initial consortium accelerator graduates later in Q2 2018.
“By supporting and mentoring the startups behind quality blockchain applications, Wanchain is seeding quality products into a blockchain industry plagued by hype and half-baked apps,” — President of Wanchain, Dustin Byington
Similar to how an electronic funds network powers fiat currency transactions, Wanchain will power blockchain transactions. WanLabs cultivates the rapidly growing Wanchain ecosystem with highly-vetted and high-potential projects across the global blockchain space.
Key benefits of WanLabs for projects include:
. Increased exposure and networking opportunity with investors and community in the Wanchain ecosystem.
. Hands-on advisory to the full spectrum of business needs, including marketing, community building, legal and tokenomics.
. Marketing and PR strategic support for go-to-market launch and beyond
INDUSTRYChains Powering Blockchain Applications
As a digital currency-agnostic platform that enables the global interoperability of multiple blockchains, Wanchain will be the financial back-end powering an array of industry-specific blockchains known as INDUSTRTYChains.
These INDUSTRYChains will connect to the Wanchain main-chain using Wanchain’s cross-chain technology. Initial INDUSTRYChains to be supported by WanLabs include the travel, gaming, and media industries. Wanchain will provide further details about these projects as well as their new ‘INDUSTRYChain’ infrastructure later in the year.
We are proud to announce the first 6 projects that will come out of our WanLabs accelerator program.
Many are established companies with millions of current users that recognize the power of blockchain to transform their business and industry.
