Wanchain is a blockchain infrastructure connecting the decentralized financial world. The blockchain, a fork of Ethereum, adds cross-chain & privacy protection to create a platform capable of creating a financial superhub of bridged networks. These bridges can be public-to-public (Ethereum to Bitcoin), public-to-private (Etheruem-to-Enterprise), or private-to-private (Enterprise-to-Enterprise. Current integrations include the Ethereum & Bitcoin blockchains, & an ERC20 set made up of Chainlink, MakerDAO, Loopring, & Gemini dollar. Wanchain's next blockchain bridge will be to EOS.Learn more about Wanchain by visiting theirwebsite.
