It’s been just revealed that the cross-organization event that took place the otheer day, on January 23, unveiled new technologies that are developed in partnership between the blockchain initiatives.
Cointelegraph made an important point and noted that 2020 proved two things: “Decentralized finance is here to stay, and significant challenges still remain. While Ethereum remains the largest DeFi infrastructure platform, more recent projects have sought to address some of the first smart contract blockchain’s shortcomings.”
The same online publication noted that Ergo Platform is a DeFi blockchain that’s been launched back in 2019 by the former Nxt and IOHK developer Alexander Chepurnoy.
This showcases an impressive set of new smart contract technologies built on the foundations of Bitcoin’s UTXO model and proven track record of security.
