Comparing the Cross-Chain Communication Protocols of EOS, Cosmos, AION, and Wanchain

Tue Jun 12, 2018 6:46 pm

Once upon a time, people believed there would only be one blockchain. But one-blockchain maximalism soon proved to be a shortsighted belief. Without forking and new chains, experimentation was extremely limited and led to the creation of hundreds of blockchains adapted to fit a specific need.

However, for the full integration of blockchain, the chains need a way to communicate with each other without the slow, expensive and risky process of using an exchange.

The founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, wrote a “Chain Interoperability” whitepaper and remarked:

“Whereas in the first few years of the blockchain industry one may be forgiven for thinking that there would be only “one blockchain to rule them all”, in recent times such a possibility has been receding further and further from reality.”
