Eric introduces Metaverse Dualchain

During the presentation, Eric talked about the interoperability and decentralization issues facing many public blockchains and possible solutions to these problems. He introduced the Metaverse Dualchain Network Architecture (DNA), which is composed of building a fast parallel chain with the DNA token that can quickly process transactions while maintaining the security and reliability of the original ETP chain. This will solve scalability issues and allow for asset mapping among BTC, ERC20, EOS, and other main chains, therefore solving the interoperability problem. Eric also mentioned that Metaverse will develop a decentralized exchange and deploy a three-layered governance system to form the underlying infrastructure of the Metaverse Dualchain. Eric and the Metaverse team had insightful discussions with the audience about the Metaverse Dualchain solution and the technicalities associated with DNA. …

Overall Thoughts

Metaverse participated in the Finwise Summit located at the Intercontinental Hotel in Hong Kong from May 28–29. Throughout an action packed two days, our core team members presented Metaverse technology and demonstrated to hundreds of summit attendees how our MyETPWallet works.

Metaverse sponsored the evening gala for the first night, where over 400 attendees celebrated “The Metaverse Dualchain Night.” During the last day, we were fortunate to earn a few “Finwise Golden Globe” awards, demonstrating that Eric and our project are pioneers in the blockchain industry. …

Problem of Buying ETP

In the past, whenever a user downloaded the Metaverse lightwallet, called MyETPWallet, the user was able to gain access to Metaverse addresses that began with “M”, and the user could transfer ETP and MST’s by using these addresses. To fully participate in the Metaverse ecosystem, however, one would need to register a digital identity (Avatar) within the wallet to issue digital assets (MST/MIT). Since the release of the Pillars of Creation update, users with Avatars can also now stake and participate using the full-node wallet in the hybrid consensus PoW+PoS network. The biggest issue and a potential roadblock arises when a new user downloads the wallet but has no ETP to register the Avatar. Since having an Avatar is a key gateway to the rest of the wallet’s functionalities, this caused trouble for new users who did not want to go through the hassle of buying ETP on exchanges then withdrawing to their MyETPWallet. …


Overview

Hi Metaverse Community,

It is time for another edition of our bi-weekly update! Over the past couple of weeks we have had exciting news, and our core developers have also made improvements on the technical front. On top of this, we now have researched more details about the binary chain system and can share a framework on how and why we will implement this triple consensus PoW+PoS+DPoS mechanism. Let’s start with marketing.

Marketing

SWFT Wallet Integration

Metaverse ETP is now available on the SWFT Wallet and SWFT Blockchain. The SWFT Wallet allows users to transfer between a variety of tokens and coins within the wallet itself, making cross-chain transfers simple and easy. Users can directly swap between two tokens without using an intermediary like BTC, ETH, or USDT. SWFT also finds the best rates among major exchanges to provide the most reasonable prices to its users. Fees are low as well, at 0.05%, which can solve some of the high transaction fees associated with selling tokens into the major pairs and then buying the desired tokens using the main pairs. This leads to multiple transactions that cost more than the simple swap on SWFT. For example, if you have ETC, and you want to buy ETP with ETC, currently you will have to go to a major exchange to convert ETC to BTC. Then using this BTC, you can finally buy ETP. If you want to withdraw ETP, that is another layer of fees added to the ultimate end user. Using the SWFT Wallet, you are can make a simple swap with a one time fee of 0.05%, …


Marketing

Since the launch of our latest update Pillars of Creation (MPC), our marketing focus has been on engaging the communities and answering any questions about MPC. Though confident before the launch, we were anxious to see how active PoS miners would be. After monitoring for 3 weeks, you, our beloved community, has delivered! We have a host of PoS miners from the community, and the list of PoS miners continues to grow. Our block time has also decreased an average of 10 seconds, meaning TPS has also increased by a good amount. Plus, the original depositors will receive their deposit-lock interest rewards sooner because the required block height for release will be reached sooner. …


Hi Metaverse Community,

Today we are happy to announce some news we know you have been waiting to hear! Our utility token ETP will be listed on Huobi Korea on March 7th, and deposits will begin 14:30 Beijing time (GMT+8). Trading will officially begin on March 8th, 15:00 Beijing time. This has been a long road in terms of getting onto reputable exchanges, and as a token of appreciation, we have partnered with Huobi to reward users who buy ETP on Huobi KR’s platform. For new Huobi KR users, as long as you buy a minimum of 70 ETP, you can earn 70 ETP! This is incredibly generous, and the announcement link to this event can be found here: https://www.huobi.co.kr/en-US/notices/528. …

The bell of the Lunar New Year has just sounded, and the madness, miracles, trials, and tribulations of 2019 are in full swing. 2018 has accompanied the volatile blockchain industry from zero to one and also has witnessed the bursting of the irrational prosperity bubble. Some people lament that this short but wonderful period of time can no longer be copied or experienced again.
