Interoperability is the ability for different computing machine systems, with varying programming sorts, to analyze and trade information with one another. The lower the friction experienced by users & participants, the higher the degree of interoperability.
Blockchain interoperability is essential for the long-term sustainability of the ecosystem. It reduces the friction between networks, facilitating the development of cross-chain, and therefore, cross-beneficial applications. The more interoperable the ecosystem becomes, the more scalable and decentralized its totality becomes.
