“Mainstream adoption of blockchain systems has been limited due to unsolved questions of scalability, privacy, and interoperability. In this paper, we will outline a proposed design for the Aion Network; a 3rd generation multi-tier blockchain system designed to address these challenges. Core to our hypothesis is the idea that many blockchains will be created to solve unique business challenges, within unique industries. As such, the Aion Network is designed to support custom blockchain architectures, while providing a trustless mechanism for cross-chain interoperability. At the root of this system is the world’s first dedicated public enterprise blockchain, Aion-1; a state of the art blockchain that introduces a new paradigm of security, and fair, representative crypto-economic incentives.”
What we don't like:
Aion is still an ERC-20 token, and the actual platform is not yet live. As with any promise of a platform, a purchase of Aion, is trusting the Aion team will produce the platform they’ve promised.
What we like:
Aion is a blockchain platform with the intent of connecting other blockchains. This can be utilized as a decentralized exchange. Purchasing Aion is investing in an atomic swap competitor. Aion can also be seen as decentralized exchange with Dapp capabilities. Aion facilitates scaling with other congested blockchains such as Ethereum. Aion can work alongside already popular platforms.
