The Blocknet is an open source, decentralized, and peer-to-peer protocol founded by Dan Metcalf and Arlyn Culwick in 2014 that acts between nodes across different blockchains. The Blocknet allows the transfer of data and value between blockchains. It is an open inter-blockchain framework because it has no core currency and can support multi-chain architectures.
Block DX is the first dApp built on using the Blocknet protocol. It is a decentralized exchange that allows trading between connected blockchains. The platform allows users to make peer-to-peer and wallet-to-wallet exchanges without the need for third parties or listing fees.
