Jul 12, 2023
This is a joint post with Wormhole on our partnership. Check out the post on their blog here.
The Wormhole Foundation and Strangelove are thrilled to announce their collaboration for the purpose of expanding Wormhole’s presence in Cosmos and advancing the reach of the interchain ecosystem at large. The engagement will focus initially on the development of Cosmos IBC-compatible infrastructure for Wormhole.
Why Strangelove and the Wormhole Foundation are Collaborating
“Strangelove is incredibly excited to be supporting Wormhole’s work in the Cosmos ecosystem,” said Jack Zampolin, CEO of Strangelove. “By helping Wormhole enable builders to expand to 20+ blockchains with just one integration, together we’ll expand the emerging interchain economy and further our shared goal of advancing IBC in the Cosmos ecosystem and beyond.”
“As we continue to expand the footprint of Wormhole’s platform, we are excited to be working with other leaders in the space of interoperability.” said Robinson Burkey, Head of Growth and BD at the Wormhole Foundation. “The Wormhole Foundation has chosen to build with Strangelove because they are a leader in software development within the Cosmos ecosystem and beyond. Additionally, as core maintainers of IBC, they share a similar mission of connecting networks and ensuring the free and secure flow of information.”
How We Plan to Work Together to Advance Interoperability
Going forward, Strangelove and Wormhole Foundation will continue working together to push forward Cosmos and EVM chains in the space, ranging from enabling IBC with Wormhole to collaborating on relayers, and more.
The Wormhole Foundation will be in Paris for EthCC and the Wormhole Hackathon the week of July 17th. WF has also recently announced its presence at Osmocon on July 21st with a major Cosmos-related announcement planned to be revealed on stage.
