The Blocknet Protocol
Blocknet is a 2nd layer blockchain interoperability protocol that enables communication, interaction & exchange between different blockchains.

13 May, Cape Town Blocknet tokens are now listed on Pangolin DEX in advance of the release of the Blocknet’s decentralized Avalanche indexer. The listing puts $aaBLOCK, a means of payment for indexed chain data, on Avalanche’s C-chain, and serves to introduce the Avalanche community to the Blocknet.

With the Blocknet’s initial release of its decentralized indexer of Avalanche’s blockchains due this month, and a planned migration to its own subnet in due course, significant mutual interest between the two projects’ communities has emerged. …

The Blocknet is extending the power of Avalanche’s subnets with a decentralized indexing system, enabling dapps to use Avalanche contracts and transactions alongside those on any other blockchain in a trustless fashion. In addition, the Blocknet will migrate its own chain to Avalanche in order to be able to focus fully on interchain product development.

Upon completion of the Avalanche indexing system (expected to be completed by May 2021), developers building with Blocknet and Avalanche will gain Avalanche chain data in a decentralized and accessible form, as well as the ability to orchestrate contracts on potentially every blockchain in existence.

22 April 2021, Bostonthe Blocknet accelerates its efforts on two fronts, enabling the most decentralized exchange to trade Ethereum tokens with over 140 different blockchains, and making Avalanche and Ethereum chain data available via decentralized API, empowering dapp developers to easily orchestrate contracts and protocols on different blockchains.

Delivering a decentralized internet

The potential for blockchain technology to disrupt the world’s major digital monopolies is tremendous. However, among blockchain interoperability projects, only the Blocknet is decentralized at the interchain level itself. Other approaches place either a single blockchain’s consensus, or the agreement of a small group of individuals, at its centre, which…

Hydra enables developers to easily access accurate and reliable Blockchain information across potentially any blockchain with a simple drop-in URL.

Powered by the Blocknet Protocol, Hydra provides users with an all-in-one solution for all supported chains including Ethereum. Hydra can be used to monetize any service with crypto payments without having to re-code or change anything about those existing applications. It also allows for Ethereum dApps to connect to a “Decentralized Infura” and, just like Infura, it comes with a payment gateway and support for enterprise clients.

Built on top of the Blocknet Protocol, Hydra solves all the issues surrounding…
