Every now and then we like to take a look at a project that has overachieved throughout the current quarter and highlight some of the successes experienced by the Team and Community behind the project. This edition will cover Tomochain (TOMO) and the past few months of progress the Team have made and published information about on their Medium and Twitter channels. If you’ve been out of the loop for the past few months, we’ll get you up to speed. Please note that this is a compilation of news already published by Tomochain and the opinions of our Author. All information discussed and reviewed in this piece can be found in the linked channels and posts throughout this piece.
Throughout September, October and November we saw a ton of development surrounding “TomoX”, a product described by Tomochain as “a secure and efficient permission-less decentralized exchange (DEX) protocol that empowers a diverse system of DEXs, market-making providers, and independent projects to work together in a decentralized manner“. It was on November 4th that we saw our first big preview of TomoX and the User Interface when Tomochain published “Say Hello to TomoX Public Testnet” on Medium at the same time Ha Hoang published “First Look at TomoDEX’s User Interface“. Tomochain would later announce a “Extreme Dex Challenge” to support the growth and adoption of TomoX, airdropping 14,000 TOMO to DEX owners. For more information on TomoX, visit the Tomochain website.
Tomochain has been partnering with community favorites left right and center. Following the lead of many other high profile projects, Tomochain linked up with Chainlink to “harness real-time information” via Chainlinks Decentralized Oracles that verify information inputs to create smart contracts that are secure from incorrect and only available to trusted data. Tomochain goes onto explain that “Along with key working relationships to Google, Oracle and SWIFT, Chainlink is consistently selected as one of the top blockchain technologies by leading independent research firms”.

Tomochain also partnered up with Band Protocol, a project very similar to Chainlink but unique in enough ways for the partnership to bring its own benefits. Kyn Chaturvedi, CBDO of Tomochain described the partnership: “The integration of Band Protocol’s decentralized oracle solution onto TomoChain will provide developers access to a reservoir of credible data that can be transformative for TomoChain Tokens and DApps.”. With both Chainlink and Band Protocol partnering up with Tomochain to work on decentralized applications using Oracles as trusted data verification methods, they’re only providing Developers with more resources to build with.

NEO is the latest partnership at the time of writing (9/12/2019) and may be to some the most major of this quarters partnerships considering NEOs reach smart economy sector. The partnership is set to “enhance ecosystem development through a series of events designed to educate and encourage developers to build dApps on both TomoChain and Neo. Leveraging their respective technological and regional expertise, both parties will support developers in building, localizing, and accessing distribution channels with the aim of connecting them with end-users.“. From the announcement we can gather that the partnership is more geared towards distribution and advertising the products built by both projects in order to get them into the hands of end-users, and that’s in our opinion exactly what blockchain and decentralized applications are missing.
