KuCoin Labs has made a strategic investment in ISSP, a groundbreaking move reinforcing its commitment to blockchain technology innovation.

This investment aims to support the development of ISSP’s innovative inscription protocol, operating on the cutting-edge Sui network, renowned for its high throughput and scalability.

“Potential in reshaping the blockchain landscape”

Lou YU, head of KuCoin Labs, said: “The investment in ISSP reflects our dedication to supporting innovative blockchain technologies. The inscription protocol on the Sui network is a testament to ISSP’s ingenuity and potential in reshaping the blockchain landscape.”

ISSP introduces the first cross-chain inscription protocol system that integrates an inscription marketplace and inscription swap, leveraging the unique Objects model of the Sui network.

The SUI-20 inscription standard protocol has been initially launched on the Sui network, utilizing the network node’s built-in indexer for indexing inscription data, ensuring optimal performance and a stable inscription experience. ISSP facilitates seamless inscription deposits into exchanges, eliminating the need for additional development by exchanges to integrate the inscription protocol.

The collaboration with ISSP on the inscription protocol marks a significant step towards developing more secure, efficient, and scalable blockchain applications. Both KuCoin Labs and ISSP share a dedication to pushing the boundaries of blockchain technology to make a substantial impact in the industry.
