Block.one Presence at Fintech Week in Singapore & Wombat is #BuiltOnEOSIO

Block.one has just announced their significant presence at the upcoming Fintech Week at The Working Capitol in Singapore, which starts on December 7, 2020. Block.one’s prominent speaking slots and panels cover important topics that are sure to be interesting to the entire crypto community and the event will be streamed for free for anyone who wants to register and tune in.

  1. Learn about Blockchain & EOSIO by Angus Maidment, Developer Relations Advocate
  2. Digital Dilemmas: CBDCs, stablecoins and the future face of money by Lee Schneider, General Counsel
  3. Business and Blockchain: From what to why and how by Bart Wyatt, VP of Blockchain Engineering and Greb Lee, VP of Sales Engineering
  4. The Cloud Security Paradox by Florian-Alexandre Bielak, Head of Cybersecurity

Earlier in the week, Block.one also published a fantastic #BuiltOnEOSIO article that featured Spielworks, the team behind the Wombat wallet, and discussed the impact they’re having on the EOS network. The article showcases that the Wombat wallet has been responsible for 35% market share of new EOS accounts in 2020, which was undoubtedly enabled through the effortless onboarding solution present in Wombat and the appealing Womplay crypto reward platform for gamers.

By allowing users to initially create a Womplay account with a simple email address, users can start earning rewards for gaming and only need to create their Wombat blockchain account once they want to cash out those rewards. This simple yet very powerful onboarding process has resulted in over 50% of new Womplay accounts being converted to Wombat wallet accounts allowing users who have never even heard of crypto to suddenly become EOS token holders.

It’s often been repeated that gaming on EOS could be a catalyst for mainstream blockchain adoption. In this regard, Wombat is leading the way and showing the world how it can be done!

Blankos Block Party Private Beta

Speaking of gaming, the Blankos private beta has finally arrived! This AAA title gives us a glimpse into what the future of blockchain gaming may hold… and it’s looking great so far! 

The game is fun, the graphics are beautiful, and the NFT integration brings a ton of potential. We’re already enjoying collecting the different Blankos, leveling them up with different skills, and decking them out with fun accessories. 

If you run across a Blankos named “EOS,” that’s us – so be sure to say hi! We won’t go into too much detail here, but those who want to learn more about the game and the reception it’s receiving, we recommend checking out these reviews, videos and livestream commentaries:

WAX NFTs: Survey, TokenHead & Upcoming Releases

Last month we circulated a survey to better understand the WAX NFT community, and today we’re happy to share the results with you. 

We’ve highlighted some of the more interesting findings in the graphic above (high resolution image here), and we’re also sharing a PDF file that includes all of the results for those who are interested in more details.

Here are some of the most interesting results of the survey:

  1. The vast majority of responders plan to maintain or increase the amount of time (91%) & money (83%) spent on NFTs.
  2. There is strong demand (55%) for fair distributions where all packs have equal chances at low mints.
  3. Only 50% of respondents collected NFTs primarily as investments/trades. Others collected them for their visual appeal, to complete sets, and to show support for brands/creators and to play NFT-based games.
  4. Gaming NFTs are the preferred types of NFTs to collect by 49% of respondents.

Overall, these trends paint a very bullish picture for WAX NFTs, and we’re excited to be part of the space. The trend towards gaming NFTs is undeniable and we expect to see lots of amazing innovation in that space in the coming weeks, months and years.

For those of you who can’t wait any longer, the Dark Country Alpha is now available for download, bringing us the first, but not last, NFT-based card collectible strategy game on WAX.

December 2020 should also see the much anticipated launch of the first KOGs game, which will also accompany their Series 2 release

Now having exciting NFT releases is what this space is all about, but it’s important not to forget that key infrastructure pieces are also currently being built out. The TokenHead app has quickly become the community favorite app for viewing and showcasing your more precious and valuable NFTs, both on your phone and on social media.
Their latest update brings some solid improvements:

  • Show mint number and mint total
  • Sort by mint number
  • Pull to refresh all the things
  • Show asset names on gallery screen
  • Various small improvements and bug fixes

Overall the WAX NFT space is growing very rapidly and it can be hard to keep up with all the projects! Make sure you’re subscribed to our newsletter or YouTube channel to stay informed on exactly what’s going on right now and the trends that are likely coming in the future!

YUP-EOS Bridge & EdgeDSP

Congratulations to the Yup team for implementing the first of its kind EOS – ETH bridge for their dual-chain liquidity mining mechanism, using the tools provided by LiquidApps. 

The process is pretty user friendly as you can see in their short demonstration video.

Through the bridge, the Yup Protocol can utilize the best of both protocols, the efficient performance and scalability of EOS and the liquidity of Ethereum.

Yup allows users content curation across social media platforms and earn Yup tokens for their work, which the team has labeled Influence Mining.

In a great interview for the #BuiltOnDAPP series, the Yup team shared further details and interesting insights. 

“We’ve known that social media platforms were too powerful long before the COVID-related disinformation and censorship. This time around, though, feels like an inflection point for trust — in our government, our media, and our platforms. What we’ll do about it will define the 20s. We think Yup will play a critical role in accurately measuring the madness online, helping users identify ‘truth’ through their own eyes and tastes. By clearing away the noise and empowering users with the tools to properly value things, we can ultimately find political common ground.”

It’s great to see that LiquidApps software is not just used to bridge the gaps between blockchain protocols, but also helps to overcome the divide that flawed social media models have brought to our societies.

A future of interconnected blockchains seems to be the next logical step for the blockchain industry to mature, and we’re happy to see so many teams in the EOSIO community working on this. Check out this great summary by CoolWave Capital.

The LiquidApps team has been a major driver for this development and by introducing their latest product, the EdgeDSP, they aim to make bridging blockchains easier than ever.

In the announcement article, we learned that any two chains can be candidates for an EdgeDSP connection, either for a long-term bridge or a one-time transaction. Furthermore, the software is so light-weight that it can be run in a browser tab. 

We’re excited to see EdgeDSP in action and the LiquidApps team explore further use-cases for their cutting edge technology.

Voice is "Social with a Soul"

The Voice team has shared some interesting results of the ongoing experimentation around content moderation on the platform in a recent post. It’s up to Voice users to report content that they believe is not welcome. Reported content is then reviewed by the Voice’s internal Trust and Safety Team and put up for a poll for the majority of the Voice users to decide.

The parameters of this process are still being fine-tuned, but we’re confident that Voice’s self-governing approach will provide the platform even more of a competitive edge, compared to centralized social media.

The next month will get interesting for Voice as the product steadily matures and we can expect intensified promotional activity. Erika Velazquez Alpern, VP of Marketing at Voice, shared a little preview of the upcoming “Social with a Soul” campaign and called for the community to help to ignite the movement.

We’re on board!
