As the tweet says, the collab will bring IoT-based digital assets to Polygon’s L2 network. Further, it added that IoTeX’s cross-chain bridge will trade ‘real-world’ NFTs from PebbleGo on Polygon’s NFT marketplace OpenSea.
More details about the partnership were included in an IoTeX’s blog. The article revealed that both companies will start exploring the design space of IoT-based digital assets and Layer 2 scalability.
Notably, IoTeX will be able to use Polygon’s interoperability protocol. This way, it can exchange IoT data with Ethereum as well as with other blockchains. According to the blog, this depicts both companies’ commitment to a multi-chain future.
To kick off the partnership, IoTeX and Polygon will build a cross-chain bridge to enable two-way token swaps between both. This means IoTeX fungible (XRC20) and non-fungible (XRC721, XRC 1155) tokens will be ported over to Polygon and given new utility. At the same time, Polygon assets (ERC20, ERC721, ERC1155) will be convertible and tradable on IoTeX’s mimo DEX.
After the integration completes, users will enjoy cross-chain interactions. They will benefit from very low transaction costs and fast finality.
