The developers explained that the open-source LiquidJS library will simplify access to the Liquid Network for external applications that do not need to additionally configure nodes. pTokens founder Thomas Bertani called LiquidJS the equivalent of the web3.js library for Ethereum.
Blockstream Marketing Director Neil Woodfine said that LiquidJS will allow many projects aimed at providing interconnectivity to work with the Liquid Network. Judging by how fast the BitcoinJS library has evolved over the past few years, LiquidJS should also accelerate the deployment of Liquid-based applications.
pTokens added that the initiative aims to develop the Liquid Network ecosystem so that using LiquidJS, it is possible to transfer cryptocurrencies from other blockchains to this network. The project has already added support for several tokens based on Ethereum and EOS. Woodfin believes that in the future, LiquidJS capabilities may go beyond the mere transfer of cryptocurrencies from one blockchain to another.
Recall that the pTokens platform was launched in March on the Ethereum core network, which became fully compatible with Bitcoin through the integration of Kyber Network and Bancor Network.
