A Holochain innovative mutual credit accounting system allows the implementation of Orion’s accounting and settlement modules in a transparent, efficient, and secure manner.
Orion and CertiK have a strategic partnership to increase the security and integrity of Orion and future DeFi platforms and products. CertiK will audit not only smart contracts for Orion, but also core modules on our platform. Any open-source software running on brokers’ local computers will be fully audited and certified by CertiK so customers can be absolutely certain that their funds are safe and secure.
Additionally, Orion and CertiK will work together to create an automatic safety verification tool for 3rd party products such as protocol components and exchange connectors. Once complete, this solution will greatly speed up the on-boarding of new exchanges and projects on Orion.
We are proud to announce that Wanchain is entering a strategic partnership with Orion Protocol to use Wanchain’s public blockchain as an atomic swaps solution, a process which is essential for Orion decentralized trading.

Orion will be able to use Wanchain’s PoS as a staking mechanism for Orion’s shared liquidity pool of brokers, providers, and market makers that fulfil orders on a trader’s behalf.
