We live in a world with many interconnected networks. As we replace the networks that require distributed trust with blockchains, we will need more and more communication between these interconnected networks that have become blockchains. Moreover, we expect that there will be no "one size fits all" blockchain--we will need information, tokens, and transactions to flow between many different kinds of blockchains. In this discussion, our panelists will share their visions for this future. One panelist will give a brief introduction on the current status of blockchain interoperability and integration and the growth that this field is seeing. We will then open the floor to discussion on what the future of blockchain interoperability will be and what we need to do as a community to get there.
