Flare to bring the XRP and ETH ecosystems together
As previously reported by Ripple Coin News, the blockchain project Flare Networks is bringing together two ecosystems Ripple (XRP) as well as Ethereum (ETH) while allowing the XRP market to have access to the existing applications of the Ethereum ecosystem.
Flare plans to do this by integrating a trustless 2-way bridge between Flare and Ethereum as the foundation said:
“This would allow FXRP to be used trustlessly on Ethereum as well as providing a scaling platform for Ethereum tokens and applications whilst giving access to the XRP market for existing Ethereum applications. This could bring together the #XRP and #Ethereum ecosystems.”
