Tron’s Apollo Will Provide Openness and Unlimited Scalability
The team at the Tron Foundation further reiterated Justin Sun’s announcement by stating that Apollo will offer openness and unlimited scalability.
We are excited to be adding #TRON. Apollo to the rapidly growing #TRON ecosystem! Our official cross-chain solution will enable data and asset transfer across multiple chains, which features security, openness and unlimited scalability.
Importance of Cross-Chain Communication in DeFi
News of Tron launching a cross-chain scaling solution comes at an opportune time as DeFi has blossomed rather fast in the last year.
The growth is best exemplified by the total value locked on Ethereum ($64 Billion), Tron ($12 Billion) and Binance Smart Chain ($42.6 Billion), just to name a few prominent blockchains.
Each of these blockchains has a growing number of DeFi users and a cross-chain solution will be the final building block to connect the activities on each of the networks. Additionally, a cross-chain solution will also usher in an era of blockchain interoperability thus ending the era of ‘isolation’ or ‘tribalism’ between networks and their users.
As mentioned by Justin Sun and the Tron Foundation, exact details of Apollo will be revealed soon and Ethereum World News will update accordingly.
