The goal, the startup said, is not to pass the core token network from ethereum to EOS, but to issue nUSD on both networks separately – a mission statement "will offer stablecoin cross blockchain".
"At this stage, the cryptocurrency is still in its infancy, so it is not clear which blockchain will be able to climb," said Haven founder Kain Warwick, adding:  "For this reason, it is important that projects that provide the blockchain infrastructure plan cross-chain compatibility, so their success is not bound to the success of any chain they choose. "

Havven's effort comes after EOS officially announced its long-awaited online launch in June. Block.One, the entity behind the EOS blockchain also revealed a $ 1 billion investment fund to facilitate the growth of its ecosystem.
