We are excited to announce a new strategic partnership with Contentos, an innovative blockchain startup developing a decentralized media content ecosystem which directly rewards users for their contributions.
Live streaming is a major new force in the gaming industry, creating new links between developers and influencers and shifting our expectations of game play and game design, and is consequently a platform whose major structural effects are only now beginning to be understood. The combination of videos, livestream and blockchain technology makes Contentos a great partner to have especially in the context of our recent release of CryptoBubbles.io — the first dApp to run on a state sharded architecture.
The partnership will capitalize on existing synergies between our respective ecosystems, further enhancing them in the process. Please find a non-exhaustive list of topics in focus:
- Elrond’s CryptoBubbles.io will reward its players with COS tokens, in addition to reputation and (later) ERD tokens
- CryptoBubbles.io players will be able to one-click stream directly onto COS.TV
- The first ever LIVE AMA on COS.TV will be held by the Elrond team.
- Contentos will also feature Elrond’s own channel on COS.TV
- Together we will cooperate for cross online promotion of our projects on COS.TV
- Elrond will also support the Contentos mainnet launch on the 25th of September by running our very own COS node.
“Our vision of the blockchain space is where an ecosystem of strong partners collaborates to bring about the benefits of decentralization. We see the Contentos media platform as a valuable addition to the space and as such are happy to work with them and speed up engagement with good technology.” says Beniamin Mincu, CEO of Elrond.
“In our effort to bridge the gap between blockchain technology and the general public, Contentos is excited to feature Elrond’s contents, showcasing their technology and games on COS.TV. This will build our mass audiences awareness about Elrond, and also improve the overall community engagement experience in the crypto community for Elrond as our platform integrates with Conentos Mainnet functions.” says Mick Tsai, Contentos Co-founder and CEO.
Contentos is a content public blockchain, capable of high TPS to support transactions generated by their DApp partners with 60M MAU efficiently. By providing a user-friendly open platform where content can be freely produced, authenticated of its copyrights, distributed, and transacted, Contentos aims to build an inclusive global decentralized intellectual property content ecosystem.
Elrond is a new blockchain architecture, designed from scratch to bring a 1000-fold cumulative improvement in throughput and execution speed. To achieve this, Elrond introduces two key innovations: a novel Adaptive State Sharding mechanism, and a Secure Proof of Stake (PoS) algorithm, enabling linear scalability with a fast, efficient, and secure consensus mechanism. Thus, Elrond can process upwards of 10,000 transactions per second (TPS), with 5-second latency, and negligible cost, attempting to become the backbone of a permissionless, borderless, globally accessible internet economy.
Elrond is built by a team of experienced entrepreneurs along with 13 engineers and researchers with significant blockchain backgrounds and technical experience at Microsoft, Google, Intel, and NTT DATA. The team includes two PhDs in CS & AI, multiple math, CS, and AI Olympiad champions, and a former member of the NEM core team.
