STO Platform launches on Wanchain with Oracle Innovation Partner of the Year, Talium
Wanchain is extremely delighted to announce a partnership with the French securities and software as a Service (SaaS) company Talium with the launch of the first Security Token Offering (STO) platform on Wanchain.

Talium has developed a blockchain-agnostic & modular Security Token issuance solution which integrates all of the tools necessary for a compliant and robust security token issue, including:
Tokens “pad” and “designer” dashboard.

Wanchain Featured in “Blockchain Bridges Explained” by Cointelegraph
“Wanchain was one of the earlier projects to enter the interoperability space. In January, it launched the fourth version of its mainnet, introducing the T-Bridge framework, which enables the transfer of data and digital assets between blockchains.”

Wanchain Roadmap 2020
2019 — Galaxy Consensus Was Born
2019 was a pivotal year for Wanchain; most notably our consensus mechanism was upgraded from permissioned proof of work (PPOW) to proof of stake (POS) using Galaxy PoS Consensus. The new POS consensus mechanism developed by Wanchain’s research team and draws from the research done by IOHK for Cardano with the Ouroboros proof of stake algorithm.
2020 — Focus on Applications
While 2019 was all about Galaxy Consensus, in 2020, we are making a significant pivot to focus on making Wanchain a better choice for dApp developers. This will be done both through additional tools that make the Wanchain dApp building process more accessible than ever, as well as upgrades to GWAN, the Wanchain core protocol client.
