UNION Partners With Curvegrid to Bring MultiBaas Tooling and Bridging Protection to Curvegrid’s Blockchain Middleware
UNION is delighted to announce our partnership with Curvegrid, a MultiBaas blockchain middleware platform for developing dApps between multiple blockchains using a familiar REST API. UNION will provide bridging protection for a cross-chain bridge to Binance Smart Chain (BSC) using Curvegrid’s multi-blockchain platform, and tap into Curvegrid’s suite of enterprise tooling to build, explore, and manage smart contracts relevant to UNION’s products on various blockchains.
“Curvegrid has a true expertise and understanding of reasonable, yet effective, abstractions for gaining technical leverage across multiple distributed ledger technologies,” says Michael Beck — UNION’s Project Lead. “They carry these abilities to their work in both cross-chain and enterprise integration. Enterprise integration and tooling are critical for UNION’S path to institutional adoption. We’re also excited at the opportunity to provide integrated protection for fungible and non-fungible digital assets in the Curvegrid BSC bridge environment. Our teams have a lot to learn and share from work together.”
Curvegrid’s MultiBaas blockchain middleware is a platform for developing decentralized applications on multiple blockchains with a REST API — offering a web-based control panel and advanced event processing. The Spreadsheet Plugin from Curvegrid enables smart contract developers to trivially read and write from the blockchain using a spreadsheet (e.g., Google Docs), vastly increasing the exposure of blockchain-based application interaction to over 1 billion spreadsheet users.
Initially, UNION will tap into Curvegrid’s MultiBaas to handle complex interactions between applications and blockchains like executing governance transactions with layered multi-signature wallets. Intelligent caching from Curvegrid’s MultiBaas also permits UNION to more efficiently keep track of state changes and complicated logic for handling missing transaction logs characteristic of small chain reorganizations. As a result, UNION can quickly reference fresh data for inclusion into risk parameters and other derivative inputs necessary to maintain recent and accurate data not subject to the shortcomings of slow state synchronization.
Building front-end applications directly on top of a REST API also significantly eases the burden of interacting and building on blockchains. Paired with spreadsheet referencing of historical block data, MultiBaas represents a significant step for UNION to handle a deluge of data necessary for maintaining a robust asset protection platform replete with multiple variables fluctuating in real-time.
Finally, UNION will spin up an asset protection pool for a cross-chain bridge between Ethereum and BSC to mitigate the risk of porting assets between the two networks. Curvegrid’s middleware tooling will serve as a necessary lynchpin for fetching real-time and historical data from both chains necessary to configure the variables for determining protection pool parameters, payouts, and details of an exploit should one occur.
“We’re thrilled to partner with UNION to bring their advanced decentralized protection platform to MultiBaas. There are counterparty, network, and operational risks in bridging blockchains for which a technology solution alone is not sufficient. UNION helps decentralized businesses and cross-chain bridge users hedge against these risks.”
We look forward to diving into Curvegrid’s platform and welcome further synergies between the two companies.
Curvegrid is a blockchain software company founded in Tokyo, Japan in 2017. Curvegrid’s MultiBaas blockchain middleware makes it easy and cost-effective to build on multiple blockchain platforms, including Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain. Curvegrid also offers a number of turnkey solutions including a cross-chain digital asset bridge, and a spreadsheet plugin for blockchain data analysis, which connects businesses to the blockchain faster than building from scratch.
