In a joint announcement by the Cronos chain and the Moralis suite, the former is now supported by Moralis’ excellent suite of developer tools and APIs. A partnership meant to build the nascent Web3 ecosystem, the partners have announced a Web3 Metaverse Hackathon to the tune of $60,000.
Moralis and Cronos integrate to lay the foundations for Web3
A leading blockchain network with full EVM-compatibility, Cronos plans to onboard the next billion Web3 users through the help of its over 250 on-chain applications and partners which include the likes of giants such as Crypto.com, Crypto.org and many many more. Through Moralis, Web3 dApp developers will be able to critically simplify their workflow through the suite’s industry-leading high-performance JSON-RPC endpoints, cryptocurrency and NFT data indexers, and other advanced functionalities. Cronos integration is available for Moralis Identity, Moralis Real-Time, Moralis API and Moralis SDK.
dApp developers can then offer cross-chain connections with their end-users through injected Web3 wallets such as MetaMask and TrustWallet as well as any other wallets using Wallet Connect. In the pipeline, the next few weeks may see a native integration with Crypto.com’s DeFi Wallet.
Ken Timsit, Managing Director of Cronos and Cronos Labs, elaborated that:
“Moralis enables developers to build decentralized applications like never before, particularly Web2 and game developers who are new to Web3 technology. Moralis is one of the most developer-friendly companies in our space. Their documentation and tutorials are world class, and their products make it easy to add blockchain functionality to any application with just a few lines of code.”
Web3 Hackathon: A time to build
