It’s time for part fifteen on Blockchain initiatives/companies powered by the Metaverse Insider. In case you missed out on the first in the series, here is the link to it.
1. Partisia Blockchain
Partisia Blockchain is a Web3 public blockchain built for trust, transparency, privacy, and speed of light finalization.
Based in Zug, Switzerland, Partisia Blockchain was founded in 2020 by Kurt Nielsen, Ivan Damgård and Jesper Buus Nielsen, world-leading cryptographers, developers and entrepreneurs with extensive experience in delivering commercial-grade software based on distributed cryptography like blockchain and multiparty computation (MPC) in particular.
Merging blockchain and MPC has long been recognized as a key challenge by the Partisia Blockchain team who have been working diligently to achieve this aim since the beginning of 2017.
Partisia Blockchain is a unique combination of a high-performance blockchain that functions as a bedrock for efficient, scalable and robust orchestration of MPC. This combination of blockchain and MPC technologies provide an optimal foundation for native privacy-preserving applications.
A core part of the infrastructure is the MPC-based Oracle utilizing the co-founder Sepior’s MPC-based key management solution. In combination with staking, the MPC Oracle plays a key role in the seamless transfer of crypto assets across blockchains. This enables the use of any liquid coin as means of payment on the Partisia Blockchain and as a reward to node operators. It also plays a core role in cross-chain orchestrated value transfer across blockchains initially tested by the co-founder Insights Network.
Partisia Blockchain project is managed and launched by the independent Swiss Foundation — Partisia Blockchain Foundation — supervised by Swiss regulators.
The Partisia Blockchain Foundation issues an MPC Token for staking and node operation only as the infrastructure is coin agnostic and driven by existing liquid coins.
2. Lyra Blockchain
Lyra Blockchain is a unique technology that provides out-of-the-box, real-time authorizations, customizable tokens with targeted smart contracts, built-in decentralized token exchange and marketplace, superlight clients, and many other features required for real-world financial transaction processing.
The Lyra network is designed and coded from the ground up, which allows it to include the most recent achievements in blockchain technologies such as block-lattice, distributed proof of stake, cryptonote, and more. Those new technologies in turn allow it to implement features that prevent mass adoption of most existing blockchains by the mainstream: very high scalability, instant authorizations and settlements, super light clients, no chargebacks, no locked balances, native customizable tokens with targeted smart contracts, built-in “on chain” decentralized exchange, and more.
Based in Dallas, Texas, Lyra Blockchain was founded in 2020 by Slava Gomzin and Wuzhou Yang.
