Solana Projects Collaborate To Launch Cross-chain Messaging Platform
The alliance of standout platforms built on Solana is working together to advance Web3 messaging by combining development on a new platform.
The product this time called Open Chat Alliance announced on August 23 is developed by more than 27 projects on Solana, most notably the Notifi Network messaging protocol, Bonfida, and communication platform Social Only1.
Their plan is to create a transparent and interoperable standard for handling crypto-based messages that can rapidly grow across the industry through the adoption of xMS open source standards.
According to the announcement, xMS is a cross-chain messaging service built to be interoperable and easily accessible with both on/off-chain capabilities. The Open Chat Alliance community will receive exclusive xMS access during this first alpha phase.
The alliance says it will form a communication standard that projects on different blockchains can use and interact easily despite the technological differences between those blockchains. The Open Chat Alliance standard, for example, will make it easy for Solana users to send a message to someone on Ethereum.
This can be a unique idea, but it is also quite challenging when Open Chat Alliance is involved in cross-chain because recently it is a top target for hackers.
Notifi Network CEO Paul Kim explains the risks of cross-chain hacking were considered by the development team before the project launch and this is why Open Chat Alliance’s framework is only messaging service-specific.
“There are multiple different features as a user you can subscribe to and, depending on which feature you use, different security protocols. But at the end of the day, we’re not really interacting just yet with any of the transactions beyond just communication.”
