Horizen Partners with Wanchain to Expand Cross-Chain Interoperability for EON, Horizen’s EVM-Compatible Smart Contracting Platform
Our pursuit for greater accessibility, scalability, and reliability within the Horizen EON ecosystem continues to lead us into strategic partnerships. Today, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with Wanchain, an R&D-focused blockchain interoperability project whose mission is to drive blockchain adoption through interoperability by building fully decentralized bridges that connect the world’s many siloed blockchain networks.
This collaboration will enhance EON’s potential by adding it to the roster of chains that users can bridge their funds to using Wanchain. Wanchain, maker of the blockchain industry’s first public decentralized cross-chain bridge, consists of a sustainable Layer 1 EVM-compatible blockchain and a network of decentralized blockchain bridges connecting nearly 30 public networks, including both EVMs and non-EVM blockchains.
Horizen’s EON chain is a fully EVM-compatible smart contracting platform and the first of many smart contract sidechains on the Horizen ecosystem. By partnering with Wanchain, EON will offer its users seamless cross-chain transactions and interoperability, enhancing the user experience and offering a broader range of functionality. EON’s scalability, interoperability, and Wanchain’s ability to process cross-chain transactions between different public and private chains will create a dynamic, efficient, and inclusive blockchain ecosystem for developers and users.
You can use the following routes to bridge coins to and from EON using Wanchain:
- EON <> Wanchain (WAN, BTC, LTC, USDC, USDT, XRP)
- EON <> Bitcoin (BTC)
- EON <> Litecoin (LTC)
- EON <> XRPL (XRP)
“We are excited about our collaboration with Wanchain. As we continue to expand our ecosystem, this partnership will create a plethora of opportunities for users, enabling more fluid transactions across different chains. This step forward perfectly aligns with our mission to facilitate the growth of a permissionless, interoperable, and customizable blockchain ecosystem.”
– Lucy Wang, VP of Marketing at Horizen
Wanchain’s technology will bridge the gap between EON and other chains, creating an interconnected ecosystem. The capacity to perform transactions not only between public chains but also private ones will significantly boost the versatility and utility of the EON platform.
“Integrating EON into Wanchain’s secure cross-chain infrastructure providea substantial value to developers and users, fostering an inclusive Web3 ecosystem where the next wave of blockchain innovation can prosper. Our work with Horizen is a testament to both projects’ commitment to building secure, interoperable systems.”
– Temujin Louie, VP of Marketing, Wanchain
EON Alpha is currently live on mainnet and on its public testnet, Gobi. Wanchain’s cross-chain functionality is available on both environments. This partnership is a significant stride towards establishing a diverse and robust Web3 ecosystem, as we anticipate the integration of a wealth of dApps and services in the upcoming months.
