Blockchain network Aion has announced the launch of the first public blockchain interoperability platform. The Aion network will allow for independently operated blockchains to connect, enabling the instant, global transfer and recording of data and value, streamlining communications, and bridging disparate blockchains. Use cases for the Aion protocol include cross-organizational functions like supply chain operations, communication between health providers, and data-sharing between government entities.
We envision a future where any blockchain can connect and share data, creating a powerful network to revolutionize how industries share information,” said Matthew Spoke, Founder and CEO of Aion. “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.
Aion will be customizable, allowing 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.
Aion’s advisory board includes Anthony Di Iorio, Co-Founder of Ethereum, John Lee, Vice President of Enterprise Delivery at the Toronto Stock Exchange, and Salim Ismail, the former Vice President of Yahoo and the founding executive director of Singularity University.
