Nuco's Aion network provides a way to communicate between multiple blockchains

Nuco's Aion network provides a way to communicate between multiple blockchains
From TechCrunch - August 30, 2017

As blockchains begin to gain in popularity, a need is developing to enable them to communicate with one another. That would require a networking infrastructure to facilitate that communication, and thats precisely what Nuco, a Toronto-based startup is trying to do with the release of the Aion blockchain network today.

Nuco CEO Matthew Spoke says that while each network is ultimately responsible for building its own level of trust within its blockchain, once you start to move outside the realm of your private blockchain as banks, governments, healthcare providers and anyone else working with this kind of data is inevitably going to do, you need a system to make that happen. Nuco built Aion to provide that mechanism.

He says that at its core, Aion becomes the plumbing to move data around. [Aion provides the] middleware for blockchains to communicate with each other, and the ability to pass messages between them, he says.

Spoke, who along with his co-founders, were originally part of the blockchain team at Deloitte, formed the company last year to begin building enterprise blockchain infrastructure, but they began to realize that while many large organizations were building private blockchains, there was a growing need for a public mechanism. As the blockchain concept begins to scale and becomes an integral part of the economic system, it requires a generic way of moving information.
