Monachain Name Inspired By Vinci’s Legendary Painting

The term Monachain is a combination of “Mona” from “Mona Lisa,” the famous oil painting made by the Italian genius Leonardo da Vinci. In Greek, Mona is a synonym for queen, hence monarchy, which means Monachain can be translated as “queen of the blockchain.” LG CNS is known for providing information technology services including system integration, consulting, business process outsourcing, network integration, and information technology outsourcing.

The company has been trying hard to increase its involvement in the booming cryptocurrency and blockchain industries.
