AION

  • Toronto, ON, Canada

Today, there are hundreds of blockchains. In the coming years, those hundreds will become thousands and—with widespread adoption by mainstream business and government—millions. Blockchains don’t talk to each other at all right now; they are like the PCs of the 1980s.

In the future, blockchains will federate data and value in a hub and spoke model similar to the internet. The future of mainstream blockchain adoption will be achieved by the development of a networked, federated blockchain to integrate these separate spokes. That integrated blockchain network is Aion.

Aion is a third-generation blockchain network that will enable any private or public sector organization to:

  • Federate: Send data and value between any Aion-compliant blockchain and Ethereum.
  • Scale: Provide fast transaction processing and increased data capacity to all Aion blockchains.
  • Spoke: Allow the creation of customized public or private blockchains that maintain interoperability with other blockchains, but allow publishers to choose governance, consensus mechanisms, issuance, and participation.

At the root of the Aion network is a purpose-built, public, third-generation blockchain called Aion-1. For more details visit https://aion.network
