What will Enigma in 2020 do to solve the interoperability problem? Isn’t that another huge issue to solve before real world use cases can be considered?

Guy Zyskind: „One of our stated goals it to complement other chains with the power of secret contracts (which we believe are absolutely necessary to makes dApps useful). That said, developing our core network is difficult enough, and I dare say it’s one of the most ambitious projects out there (and that list is extremely short). This is where partners like AION come in – we hope they will build the bridge between us and other blockchains.

It is important to recognize we’re in the very early days. Right now the partnership revolves around sharing notes and thinking together on how to materialize this collaboration.

Also, we do want to emphasize that while interoperability is an important problem to solve, it’s not as necessary as privacy or scaling. This is true for the same reason that Windows/Linux/OSX would not be useful if they were too slow to run the applications built on them, or if they would make all of your data publicly available for the world to see. But, they are still useful without VMWare/Parallels allowing you to cross between them."
