October 31, 2023

The integration of the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol by the Avalanche subnet Landslide Network will enable Cosmos Hub (ATOM), Avalanche (AVAX), and more than 100 IBC-enabled chains to have interoperable connections. This announcement was made by the Interchain Foundation (ICF) on October 31, 2023. The Landslide Network will release a testnet on November 1, which will bring IBC-compliant decentralized applications (dApps) to the Avalanche network via the integration of the IBC light client developed by the Cosmos team. This collaboration between Cosmos and Avalanche will revolutionize the DeFi ecosystem and benefit both ecosystems.

Bringing IBC-Compliant dApps to Avalanche

The Landslide team, with the collaboration of software development firm Strangelove, has developed an IBC light client on Avalanche. Ava Labs, in a statement, mentioned that this development will enable cross-chain communication through CosmWasm smart contracts on Avalanche. The aim of this initiative is to allow IBC-compliant dApps to run seamlessly on the Avalanche network, which will open up new possibilities for the DeFi ecosystem.

Today’s announcement coincided with the rise in the price of ATOM to $8.15, its highest level since August 15, and AVAX traded at highs of $11.65, with bulls looking to hold onto the gains seen since October 19.
