Celo taps Chorus One to build a bridge with Cosmos, paving the way for others
Celo has awarded a grant to staking service provider Chorus One to build a bridge facilitating interoperability between the Cosmos and Celo networks. The Celo Foundation will also fund a Tendermint Light Client allowing the Celo blockchain to verify signatures and block headers created both by Cosmos and Cosmos-SDK-based chains.
Celo’s co-founder Marek Olszewski emphasized his belief that the crypto sector will come to comprise an interoperable ecosystem spanning many blockchain networks: In May, Chorus One was awarded a similar grant by the Web3 Foundation to build aspects of a bridge enabling interoperability between Substrate and Cosmos-SDK-based blockchains. Cosmos and Celo are not only networks pursuing interoperability, with Near launching its Ethereum bridge and Ontology Neo and Switcheo unveiling their “interoperability protocol alliance,” Poly Network, in August.
