A Year in Review — RiveX
A review what RiveX has accomplished over the last year
2019 was a monumental year for RiveX, marking some major milestones as the project progressed throughout the year. The RiveX team has been working around the clock to deliver products first, and ask questions later. We believe 2020 will be an important year for not just the DeFi space, but the blockchain industry as a whole. We have paved the way to ensure we deliver what was promised to make a huge impact in the DeFi space in the new decade.
Let’s take some time to reflect on what RiveX achieved in 2019
RiveX announces first partnership with Wanchain
Why build on Wanchain?
Building on Wanchain’s private chain known as Lanchain will allow dApps built on RiveX to seamlessly connect to Wanchain’s public chain anytime they need. This will enable cross-chain communication with other blockchain protocols like Bitcoin and Ethereum, as well as Wanchain’s upcoming integration, EOS, which is scheduled for Q1 2020. Below are some of the key features of Wanchain’s private chain.
- Privacy Protection
- Cross Chain Capabilities
- Rapid Deployment
- High Performance
- Highly Customizable
RiveX network has its very own dedicated features which leverage on Wanchain’s interoperability and capabilities. Interoperable and scalable decentralized applications, enterprise solutions and decentralized finance from Wanchain or any other protocols which Wanchain has already connected with can easily be built or integrated on RiveX network.
RiveX intends to provide developers, enterprises and applications with the ease of integration into RiveX’s ecosystem via its robust SDK and API library. Developers or enterprises are able to design and develop or migrate their solutions to RiveX’s ecosystem with ease. Dapps built on other protocols have the option to leverage on the RiveX network or simply migrate over to RiveX and take advantage of the features provided.
RiveX also joined Wanchain’s Galaxy Consensus validator program enabling WAN delegation services to WAN holders around the globe.

Tech & Product updates
The RiveX wallet will be the core component of the WRDEX. Users will be able to access the DEX from all platforms using the RX Wallet, as well as WanMask, the Google Chrome Web extension. Ledger and Trezor hardware wallet support are in the midst of integration. Users will be able to store their assets on a connected Ledger or Trezor for added security in the future. RX wallet also features multiple asset storage as well as a shared wallet account which enables users to create or join an existing shared wallet. The idea of a shared wallet is similar to that of a multisig wallet.

RiveX’s Blockchain as a Service (BaaS)
What is BaaS and why is it important for RiveX?
Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) is a core component in RiveX’s revenue model, offering highly customizable and modernized software for enterprises, enhanced by the strength and uniqueness of blockchain technology. Decentralized cloud-based solutions alleviate the risk of data vulnerability by encrypting data and distributing it in chunks over a peer-to-peer blockchain based network. This data can only be unencrypted by the end user which increased privacy and security for all data sent across the network.
