Blumer reveals a key strategy. And as always, information coordinated from the B1 Wire, around the EdenOS community, and the Finney Report.
EOS Authority, Upland and ClimateCare Offset Mainnet Carbon Footprint
A collaboration led by EOS Authority with Upland and ClimateCare has managed to offset the entire carbon footprint of the EOS mainnet for the year. EOS Authority praised the efficiency of EOSIO tech for the successful effort. You’ll find several interesting statistics at EOS Authority’s “Green” page. Annual CO2 emissions, electricity, and BP numbers as specified on the site on July 13:
21 Block Producers
19 Standby Producers
281 tonnes of CO2
630.72 Energy MWh
EOS is touted as “world's first major carbon neutral blockchain” there as well. “The EOS Blockchain has gone green!
Chintai’s Solution for Capital Markets
Chintai is among the most active EOSIO teams. This week’s focus is on private capital markets. It’s an efficient solution that provides leverage for small asset managers, SMEs and individuals. Chintai compares itself to the white label solution of Shopify. The team is building the “first regulated, decentralized venue” for capital markets. The hope is to deliver the “best of both worlds”. The team is actively hiring to build a more “fair and transparent financial system”. Chintai is also looking at NFTs.
Greymass Develops a Web Wallet
Greymass now has a web wallet. The team reached out to the community to help with improvements, though, it already seems rather impressive. Initial focus is on core functionality like viewing token balances, completing transfers and transaction transparency. Additional features of note include:
Multi sign-in options
Functionally on both mobile and PC
Account value and token prices
Advanced resource management tools
Blankos NFT Drop for Watching E3 Keynote on Twitch
On June 14th Blankos Block Party is teaming up with Twitch to drop a special NFT. Those wishing to claim this NFT sporting the letters “N F T” will need to watch 15 minutes of the team at E3. E3 is among the most watched events in the gaming industry. The crowd it draws is also impressive. As for Blankenstein Blanko, they are developed as ‘NFT’. Not all Blankos are. So you’ll own Blankenstein and may trade them if you wish. For more information and the specifics on how to claim, visit the Blankos blog. The PROMO comes days after completing series B funding. Adam Bain also chimed in on the wonder that is Blankos Block Party.
Blumer’s Vision and Strategy
Brendan Blumer does amazing things as CEO of Block.one. He balances events on a global scale within the relative B1 and EOS microcosms. Here’s his latest rumbling tweet:
CoinDesk @CoinDeskUnregistered DeFi markets may be illegal in the U.S., @CFTCberkovitz said in a speech Tuesday. @nikhileshde reports https://t.co/HGWfnSXBiR
For some time now, Blumer has been preparing the community to take a leadership role in crypto going mainstream. Developing compliant, programmable monetary solutions is seen as the best course given regulatory interest and current technology. The CoinDesk article Blumer was responding to is entitled “DeFi Derivatives May Be Illegal: CFTC Commissioner”.
Remember Block.one’s big legal win in D.C.? Today it has settled its nagging class action lawsuit for just under $28 million. The settlement is pending approval but looks to go through. The statement from B1 reads as follows:
“Block.one believes this lawsuit was without merit and filled with numerous inaccuracies. However, accepting this settlement allows us to focus more time and energy on running our business and delivering new products.”
There are few within the community that believe B1 was deserving of the headache. Now, for the second time, the dedicated team of developers finds some justice. Other news around B1 includes:
The call for developers to get involved with Stack Exchange
Attention placed on Nodeos clustering to help systems administrators present a better UX
Ultra adds to the EOSIO developer arsenal through gaming, incentives streaming, and infrastructure
