Cross-chain tools for deployment in web3 projects are all the rave at the moment, and developers either deploy such tools or go the chain bridge development route. And that is a lot harder than it looks, and it’s all about blockchain interoperability.
The web3 industry has grown beyond project deployment on a single blockchain to projects having access to multiple blockchains. There are several benefits to this.
First of all, the end-user experience is the end-all. Projects have evolved beyond just fulfilling utility to creating projects that users enjoy while providing utility. This paradigm shift indicates that competition exists within the web3 industry, contrary to skeptical views.
Secondly, this aspect of collaboration across blockchains strengthens the adoption of web3 technologies, and this collaboration brings about further innovation and strengthens bonds among web3 communities.
Then there is also the fact that the web3 industry is maturing. Everything is happening at once. So a single snapshot in a moment changes once a new concept comes on the scene.
3 Best Cross-Chain Tools You Need to Know!
Here are 3 cross-chain tools that have changed the industry.
pNetwork’s Suite of Tools Enables All Kinds of Functionality
pNetwork is a cross-chain development toolset that has remained consistently unique in its cross-chain operations approach. pNetwork focuses on developing pTokens which get deployed across the industry stress-free.
The network’s approach is unique because of its hardware sandbox isolation policies. This approach allows developers to make all their mistakes before going gamma on their projects, and its sandbox isolation provides all kinds of experiments before projects go live.
With the pNetwork, it’s possible to migrate all kinds of projects across networks. From Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) to Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs), pNetwork allows developers to create projects with cross-chain functionality without sweating it out with individual blockchains. What’s more, pNetwork’s multi-layered smart contract functionality gives developers the ability to move their D’Apps in many directions while focusing on the user.
Cosmos Deploys The Interblockchain Communication Messaging Protocol (IBC)
Built by the team behind the Tendermint project, Cosmos aims to become the ultimate blockchain communications tool. Using the Cosmos SDK, developers can build cross-chain applications that interact with just about any blockchain without the tedious processes involved in linking projects with network bridges.
Connections between blockchains occur via the Inter-blockchain Communication protocol (IBC). IBC is a secure messaging protocol that allows communications between blockchains and ledgers.
What separates IBC and network bridges is that IBC allows for the deployment of light clients that interact directly with the virtual machines of other blockchains.
On a promising note, having a single protocol may be a difficult task, but IBC and other projects like it are bound to beat the network bridge approach in the long run.
EverdreamSoft (EDS) Allows Developers The Flexibility Needed in Project Deployment
EverdreamSoft (EDS) has been in the web3 space for quite a bit. Their approach has been to build a suite of tools that allow developers to do what they want to do without affecting project functionality and utility.
Their Crystal Spark suite of tools enables any developer to deploy any project across connected blockchains within the EverdreamSoft (EDS) ecosystem.
One particular application of this is the ownership of digital assets. Using Crystal Spark, a developer can allow digital assets to be owned and transferred across multiple blockchains without the user interfering with the process.
Crystal Spark’s features are blockchain agnostic. So, developers have a wide berth when deploying their D’Apps using Crystal Spark.
This approach is more likely to allow for including all kinds of users. These users want the best experience when using D’Apps without involving them with the technical functionalities occurring under the hood.
The Future of Blockchain Interoperability
As many new blockchain and ledger projects emerge, there shall be an increased need for blockchain interoperability.
The era of using and deploying network bridges is coming to a close. Long deployment periods, bugs, high transaction fees, and other issues present too many obstacles that hamper industry growth.
Cross-chain tools, however, shall grow in popularity as developers seek ways and means of solving their various issues without having to go through the long route, which hinders adoption. Easy-to-use, all-in-one, and secure cross-chain tools are the future of the web3 space!
