Hey guys :) I’m back with another full list of partnerships and integrations, this time for the little-known public blockchain project – Harmony (ONE).
While Harmony isn’t the most popular cryptocurrency project out there, I’m not so sure it will stay that way for long.
Harmony is a high-throughput, low-latency, and low-fee public blockchain network designed to scale as the infrastructure for 'the decentralized economies of the future.’ The project has only been in the blockchain race for a little under a year now and it’s already shaping up to be a promising blockchain scaling solution for decentralized applications (dapps) and DeFi products.
That being said, I thought it was worth doing a piece on Harmony’s full list of partnerships and integrations. But before we get started, be sure to check out my previous partnership articles on Algorand (ALGO) and Loopring (LRC) as well.
Hope you enjoy the read!
