Details
As Bitcoin’s dominance declines and competition from altcoins rises, the need for ‘cross-chain' applications (based on proof-of-work) has increased. The ability to make logical transactions spanning several blockchains is required to expand opportunities.

Using sidechains has been considered a possible solution to scalability, thanks to its ability to off-load work from the network. As is common with development, security concerns of the protocol are holding implementation back.

How can this concept be introduced without compromising security?
