We are excited to introduce the upcoming integration with XION - the first modular Generalized Abstraction layer, purpose-built for consumer adoption by enabling seamless user experiences for everyday users. The collaboration will bring two fast-growing ecosystems closer together, enabling gamers’ assets to flow freely from Ancient8 Chain to XION and vice versa. With XION’s Generalized Abstraction Layer, this integration will bring seamless onboarding experience for non-crypto native users from the XION Layer 1 to Games on the Ancient8 Chain.
