Interoperability between decentralised networks has become a whole lot easier with the introduction of hashport. Having launched 9th November 2021, hashport strikes a critical balance between neutrality, security, speed, cost-effectiveness, and ease of use.
hashport achieves this balance by eliminating the need for a native network token, acting as a decentralised public utility, while harnessing the power of the Hedera Consensus Service (HCS) and having a robust, industry-leading validator swarm, responsible for securing the portal.
The validator swarm is composed of the following members:
“hashport will help reduce transaction complexity and processing times that currently plague the DLT industry today. In the not too distant future, efficient, cost-effective, real-time settlements between the worlds of DeFi and CeFi will become reality.” — Nabil Manji, Head of Crypto and Emerging Business
“Cross-chain interoperability is key to building sustainable DeFi ecosystems, unlocking new liquidity, scaling the Metaverse, and more. hashport will provide one of the first mechanisms in bridging the gap between DLT networks and communities, and the HBAR Foundation is committed to supporting a wide range of onramps into the Hedera ecosystem.” — Shayne Higdon, Executive Director & CEO of the HBAR Foundation
“We are excited to see hashport go live as it will bring the HBAR community closer to the extended blockchain community and will spur growth across different networks” — Arjun Kalsy, VP Growth
“We are excited to collaborate with hashport to make interoperability of digital assets between different blockchains much easier. We believe that hashport can contribute to the growth of the blockchain and NFTs industries and help build the metaverse for the masses.” — Yat Siu, co-founder and executive chairman of Animoca Brands
“hashport brings the digital assets industry one step closer to a multi-chain market structure designed to unlock greater productivity and utility across individual ecosystems, providing users with seamless access to the ever-increasing range of protocols and decentralized applications. At Hex Trust, we are convinced advocates of cross-chain connectivity as a way to extract the full potential of multiple blockchain protocols and create an integrated framework that can adjust, upgrade and support an infinite number of use cases.” — Alessio Quaglini, CEO & Co-founder of Hex Trust.
StableNode facilitates the integration of the Dai stablecoin in the Hashport Bridge as a close partner of MakerDao. The future collaboration between Stable Node, Maker Growth and Hashport aims to push DeFi in the upcoming Hedera ecosystem.
“StableNode is thrilled to be part of the hashport portal set-up where we aim to facilitate growth across all the networks we will touch.” — StableNode Team
“hashport is a long-waited and important tool which aims to close the gap between different DLT networks and enable blockchain communities to share and collaborate like never before. LimeChain is proud to be part of the core development team and one of the few trusted validators and council members on the new hashport portal. We believe this is an important step in moving the blockchain industry forward by decreasing the usability gap and will help communities collaborate easily.” — Daniel Ivanov — Tech Lead & Solutions Architect at LimeChain
“Through Calaxy, we are not only aiming to bring fans and creators closer together but to also build a holistic ecosystem with extended utility for the user. This would not be possible without interoperability as a fundamental pillar. With this partnership and the provision of hashport’s portal, we are solidifying seamless, safe, and interactive experiences for cross-network asset settlements. This is one step further in helping Calaxy do its part in advancing the creator economy.” — Spencer Dinwiddie, CEO and Co-Founder at Calaxy
“hashport ushers in a new era of collaboration between DLT networks enabling seamless movement of assets in a simple, secure and cost-effective way, without the need for the user to swap or exchange their tokens. BCW Group is excited to be part of the core team productising hashport and be a trusted validator on the hashport portal.” — Aakriti Jain, Marketing and Business Development Director of the BCW Group
Statement from Hedera Hashgraph
“As the distributed ledger industry matures and moves from experimental, stand-alone projects to enterprise-grade, production applications running thousands of transactions per second, interoperability that allows for the fast, secure movement of digital assets across multiple networks will be crucial,” said Nigel Clark, SVP, Partners and Industries at Hedera Hashgraph, LLC. “Interoperability has driven the exponential growth of the majority of industry-leading software platforms over the last few decades, and the distributed ledger technology industry is no exception. We are pleased to see hashport help lead the way in our industry’s next phase of growth.”
The strength of hashport and its validator swarm is derived from its diversity of membership. Each organisation brings its unique strengths, community, and trusted reputation, thus enabling hashport to recognise and implement new and exciting use cases early and more efficiently.
“Access between distributed networks should be a convenient, painless process. hashport aims to provide this experience by minimising the barrier to entry for participants in every way possible. Users, developers, and companies will be able to explore new use cases and opportunities that were previously out of reach.” — Jesse Whiteside, Director of Business for hashport.
As the space continues to evolve, so will hashport.
hashport connects the Hedera Hashgraph to the Polygon network and Ethereum network, and will further expand to other networks.
Worlds of Possibility, coming your way.
