Harmony - A blockchain of bridges
Harmony works with many chains to make transactions faster and cheaper.
What is Harmony?
Harmony is a fast, secure, open blockchain that allows for blocks to be created in seconds. Harmony can be bridged to Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain, as well as other blockchains allowing users to transfer assets securely across multiple chains.
Why does Harmony have value?
Harmony can be used to overcome expensive fees on Ethereum. It is also a central resource for developers who are looking to build Ethereum compatible Dapps but want to do it on a platform that is faster and less expensive for users. It settles transactions on it’s own blockchain so it’s a layer 1 chain but it acts like a layer 2 with deep integrations on Ethereum and Binance. In that way, it has value by offering low cost, fast transactions, for Ethereum/Binance compatible decentralized applications.
What are the Pros of Harmony?
● Highly scalable.
● Transactions are fast and low cost.
● Compatible with Ethereum and other smart contracts blockchains.
What are the Cons of Harmony?
● Harmony has strong competitors that are more engrained in the Ethereum community.
