Blockchain Interoperability Platform Launched By Aion

Announcements, Blockchain | April 26, 2018 By:

The Aion Network, a multi-tier system designed to address unsolved questions of scalability and interoperability in blockchain networks, has officially launched its mainnet.

Founded by Matthew Spoke, the Aion Network is described as the third-generation blockchain network. It enables the development of a federated blockchain network, making it possible to seamlessly integrate dissimilar blockchain systems in a multi-tier hub-and-spoke model, similar to the Internet. Use cases for the Aion protocol include cross-organizational functions like supply chain operations, communication between health providers, and data-sharing between government entities.

The Aion Network will allow enterprises to partition a blockchain to control access for security or privacy reasons. The range of blockchain-related use cases in a single, large enterprise can also be broad enough to require multiple blockchains, each with semantic, operational, or government properties, while still maintaining safe and private communication between them.

On May 2, Aion will be hosting its first developer conference, called AIONEX, in Toronto. AIONEX will precede the Community Ethereum Development Conference on May 3-5, and will feature technical discussions on the impact of a common interoperable protocol by blockchain thought leaders and engineers.

Matthew Spoke, CEO and co-founder at Aion Networks, said the idea behind the Aion Network is to provide the underlying plumbing to encourage more highly scalable blockchain use cases.

“We envision a future where any blockchain can connect and share data, creating a powerful network to revolutionize how industries share information,” said Spoke. “We’re proud to be the first interoperability platform in the blockchain industry, and look forward to witnessing use cases across the public and private sector.”
