Calaxy is excited to join other industry-leading projects in supporting the Hedera ecosystem and its interoperability with Ethereum and Polygon, through the hashport network. Bridging these networks provides developers with a greater, and more streamlined ability to create rich experiences that utilize the strengths of each blockchain or distributed ledger technology. This decentralized bridge will provide added liquidity by potentially facilitating the transfer of assets from HTS to popular marketplaces, such as OpenSea.
Calaxy provides content creators and celebrities with the opportunity to leverage the Hedera Token Service (HTS) for both social tokens and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). By reimagining the way people use social media, and empowering more interactive and meaningful fan experiences, Calaxy puts power back into the hands of the user, creating a fair exchange of value. The application gives creators the ultimate toolkit to monetize engagement through familiar experiences such as live video calls and monthly premium content subscriptions, in addition to rewarding fans for their engagement.
Through this collaboration with the hashport network and the provision of a decentralized bridge, Calaxy embraces its position as an active community member in support of the other visionary networks working to facilitate and bolster the wider Hedera ecosystem. Following on from the addition of Calaxy nodes on the Flow blockchain,, this partnership will allow Calaxy to continue to innovate, and further expand user utility and interoperability across the network.
“At Calaxy, we are industriously working towards becoming the home for showcasing NFTs and all types of digital collectibles of sentiment. By enabling a cost-effective bridge and playing an active role in its governance, we can ensure greater collaboration and opportunities for every project that is utilizing the Hedera network.” — Rusty Matveev, Chief Strategy Officer @ Calaxy
