Oracles Network Announces Cross-Chain Bridge Technology

Business Wire India | 14 Nov, 2017
California-basedOracles Network has unveiled cross-blockchain bridges, capable of transferring assets across various Ethereum-compatible networks such as Ethereum Classic, Oracles Network, Ethereum itself and others. 

Oracles Network’s cross-chain bridge mechanism successfully overcomes two of the biggest obstacles blockchain systems currently face: scalability and connectivity. These obstacles prevent widespread blockchain deployment for many small and midsize businesses. As existing networks struggle to accommodate a growing number of transactions, network performance suffers greatly while costs increase due to expensive transaction fees. Oracles Network’s cross-chain bridge addresses these limitations by providing open-source tools to all industry players.
 

The cross-chain bridge enables seamless connectivity amongst any Ethereum-compatible networks, allowing for greater flexibility in transferring value. Previously, for a blockchain to be viable, it had to have a self-sustaining ecosystem. Since blockchain ecosystems are time-consuming and complex to build, many chains were incapable of long-term development.
 

“One of the immediate use cases for cross-chain bridges is a cross-chain tokensale, a new way to conduct crowdsales,” said award-winning blockchain expert and Oracles Network co-founder, Igor Barinov. “In this scenario, we create cross-chain crowdsale contracts, collecting funds on the main Ethereum network while issuing tokens on another, more performant and cost-efficient Ethereum-compatible network. This brings to life new types of interactions between blockchains.”
