Animoca Brands joins hashport as a validator

05 November 2021 -- HONG KONG -- Animoca Brands today announced that it has become a validator of hashport, a new public utility that will facilitate the secure and efficient transfer of digital assets between different distributed ledger technology (DLT) networks.


hashport will allow users to take part in the growth of networks that were previously inaccessible, increasing their opportunities and the potential for collaboration between networks. hashport seeks to strike the right balance between security, speed, cost-effectiveness, and ease of use.


The hashport application will allow retail users to port their digital assets and explore new  DeFi, gaming, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) applications seamlessly between networks.


When hashport launches on 9 November 2021, it will connect Hedera’s public distributed ledger with both the Polygon and Ethereum networks, and will support additional networks in the months after launch.


Yat Siu, co-founder and executive chairman of Animoca Brands, commented: “We are excited to collaborate with hashport to make interoperability of digital assets between different decentralised networks much easier for users. We believe that hashport can contribute to the growth of the blockchain and NFT industries and help build the open metaverse for the masses.”


“In Animoca Brands, hashport has the support and expertise of the industry's most decorated and knowledgeable DLT based gaming company. We look forward to having the opportunity to work with Animoca Brands in bringing greater choice, opportunity, and cohesiveness to decentralised networks everywhere,” said Jesse Whiteside, director of business development at hashport.
