Erick Pinos, Ontology’s U.S. Ecosystem Partner, told Crypto Briefing that the project, although currently committed to using NEO technology, has begun laying the foundations for integrations elsewhere.
“We’re preparing on a technical level to integrate with them [blockchain platforms]”, Pinos said. One aspect currently under development is cross-chain swaps, enabling assets to move across blockchains. Ontology is already developing swaps with Ethereum (ETH) and EOS, according to Pinos.
Ontology is designed to provide a layer of privacy on top of a public ledger. It was launched in late 2017 by Onchain, a Shanghai-based R&D company founded by Da Hongfei and Erick Zhang, the creators of the NEO project.
