Ahead of ParallelChain mainnet launch, GEM Digital Limited, a digital asset investment, has reportedly invested $50 million into the firm. The investment is targeted at the ParallelChain Lab Layer-1 protocol development project.
The blockchain industry keeps growing in strength as more funds enter the industry. The DeFi community is one part of the blockchain industry pulling the most weight.
ParallelChain is an all-in-one decentralized blockchain that handles enterprise-grade and retail use cases. ParallelChain consists of two scalable layer-1 platforms, the Public mainnet, and Private Networks. ParallelChain recently launched its native token XPLL as an Ethereum-based ERC-20 token.
The soon-to-be-launched mainnet is a layer-1 smart contract platform with a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism designed to power an accountable and democratic ecosystem. The XPLL token will also be listed in the fourth Quarter of 2022 with the mainnet launch.
ParallelChain Committed To Bridge The Gap
ParallelChain’s CEO, Ian Huang, said ParallelChain’s Mainnet is the solution to the industry’s demand for privacy, compliance, and scalability across public blockchain applications. ParallelChain aims to close the gap between DeFi and CeFi with its open-source mainnet.
The ParallelChain Enterprise, the Private network, would enable user privacy when performing transactions using the proof-of-immunity mechanism. ParallelChain’s two platforms seek to deliver confidentiality and validated transactions.
GEM’s $50 million investment would enable market expansion, research and development, and funding of decentralized projects.
