Bancor Protocol development team has announced it's hosting Toronto-based Aion at AYEKA venue in Tel-Aviv on April 8. The topics of the coming discussion cover cross-chain networks development and building inter-chain bridges. The premise to the topic of cross-chain interaction is that in the future blockchains will topologically become aligned with 'spoke-hub' distribution paradigm (a form of transport topology where traffic routes are organized as a series of 'spokes' connecting outlying points to a central 'hub'). Such topology is intrinsic to the Internet, and blockchain will eventually exchange data and value based on that concept.

Nowadays, developers are already creating app and smart contracts that transact across multiple chains. The meetup will introduce the experience and knowledge of Bancor and Aion teams in the terms of tools and techniques for designing tomorrow's inter-chain bridges. Drinks and foods will be served throughout the whole meetup. The agenda of the event is as follows:

1.  19:00 - Mingling

2.  20:00 - Lightning Talks:

  • Galia Benartzi, Bancor Co-Founder
  • Kesem Frank, Aion Co-Founder

3.  20:40 - Live Coding Demos

4.  21:00 - Radically honest Q&A with Bancor & Aion teams

Aion has built a multi-tier blockchain network and designed a protocol for connecting blockchains. Bancor is prominent for its Smart Tokens cryptocurrencies with built-in convertibility directly through their smart contracts. Bancor Protocol enables formulaic price calculation and continuous liquidity for all integrated tokens thus matching two parties in an exchange is redundant.

Atlas Protocol plans to create a blockchain ecosystem and "to form a new paradigm of interactive marketing." According to the press release, ATP allows you to rank "calculated values ​​on the block and transfer value using tokens" using the ATP Smartdrop service application.

xGoogler Blockchain Alliance was formed in April this year as a community of former Google employees interested in blockchain technology. Its founders were the developers of projects Nebulas, Loopring and Gifto.
