Facebook’s Libra and CryptoKitties Have Collaborated to Develop Enhanced Blockchain

News / 14.04.2020

CrypoKitties also known as Dapper Labs have collaborated with Libra towards the development of an enhanced blockchain which developers will find friendly.

CrypoKitties released a platform towards easing developers’ building and testing of programs. The all-new platform is known as “Flow Playground.” This platform ensures that testers and developers are able to run their programs without issues.

The collaborative efforts of Libra and Dapper Labs will involve the incorporation of a programming language known as Cadence into their own style known as Move Virtual Machine. The developers will find it beneficial and the creation of blockchain will become easier with it.

According to Dapper Labs’ CEO in an interview, they had come up with a minimum of 550 projects via the Playground with more than a thousand developers.

In spite of the collaborative efforts between Libra and Dapper Labs, Libra is majorly a finance or payment processor group, says the CEO. He also said that at the moment, Flow Playground is working on the creation of special and important digital assets such as Crypto collectibles.

Nevertheless, Libra and Flow may never be involved in building assets or smart contracts together. According to Libra, there will be no use of smart contracts at the launch or anytime soon.

In terms of Flow compatibility (making Flow interoperable with other blockchains such as Bitcoin or Altcoins), this is not part of the efforts of Dapper Labs. That is, they are not considering the connection of these links. According to the CEO, Flow is only a general-purpose blockchain.

The plans of Dapper Labs include infusing this and creating new digital assets associated with gaming and technology. This is due to gaming and entertainment being the way to comprehend the wants of the consumer.
