Ethereum-based startup Aragon is contemplating to construct a further community on Polkadot’s blockchain interoperability protocol, in response to a Coindesk report.
The prospect was first revealed by the corporate’s CTO Jorge Izquierdo earlier this week at its Aracon convention. Though not finalized but, the Aragon builders are exploring the thought of utilizing Polkadot to construct a framework to construct good contracts known as aragonOS.

Aragon’s CEO Luis Cuende informed Coindesk: “The concept is to make most aragonOS transactions virtually free and really optimized, so customers can seamlessly run [decentralized autonomous organizations] in a less expensive and quicker method.”
Despite the inclination in direction of Polkadot, Cuende clarified that the corporate remains to be “bullish” on Ethereum’s potential and can proceed to work on its present initiatives to deploy Aragon Network on Ethereum’s blockchain inside 2019.
What is Polkadot?
Developed by Ethereum co-founder Gavin Wood, Polkadot is a is a blockchain interoperability protocol usually seen as a complementary to the good contract chief Ethereum. The builders of the mission outline it as a “consensus and transaction supply” system between completely different blockchain networks.
The protocol went stay on a check community in May final 12 months. The potential of the mission had attracted many traders because it has already raised $145 million by an preliminary coin providing (ICO) in 2017 and is now planning to lift $60 million extra with one other spherical of token sale.
Though Polkadot – Parity Technologies and the Web3 Foundation – claims that it isn’t a contest to the dominance of Ethereum, many are seeing Aragon’s transfer as a warning signal to Ethereum’s blockchain, which combating scalability points.
“Aragon has not stated they’re migrating off Ethereum, simply that they’re exploring choices … But I do contemplate it an early warning signal, from one of the vital essential app ecosystems on Ethereum, and I believe we should always heed the warning,” Lane Rettig, an Ethereum developer, informed Coindesk.
