Projects that use or built on it


  • Wanchain raised (26-8-2020) concerns about REN's decentralization and claimed they were hiding the fact that they were centralized. REN countered that the centralisation was indeed true, but had been communicated along the way multiple times and that it had a clear roadmap towards decentralising. Since both are fishing in the same cross-chain pond, Wanchain could have had bad motives for starting this.
