Digital asset investment firm GEM Digital Limited (GEM) has committed $50 million to finance ParallelChain Lab following the launch of its mainnet and native token listing, XPLL, in Q4 2022.
As a proof-of-stake (PoS) layer-1 protocol, ParallelChain aims to bridge the infrastructure divide between centralized (CeFi) and decentralized finance (DeFi). The soon-to-be-launched ParallelChain Mainnet is open source and based on a PoS consensus mechanism dedicated to maintaining a fair distribution of power.
The permissioned ParallelChain Enterprise, on the other hand, will ensure the secrecy of transactions using a patented Proof-of-Immutability mechanism. The two platforms, together, intend to deliver an architecture that operates in confidentiality while allowing to validate transactions. Speaking about the innovation, ParallelChain CEO Ian Huang stated:
GEM’s $50 million investment in ParallelChain is planned to be redirected to market expansion, community development, research and development and funding of decentralized projects and decentralized app (DApp) developers.
