  • Our Co-Founder Minh Doan has used his own foundational nodes tokens to fund an account in four different shards as stated in this transaction. Real use-case for cross shard :)

Marketing, Community & Events

  • We have kicked off Japan Blockchain Week with Unblock Tokyo — featuring more than 40 leading blockchain projects. Our own engineer John Whitton has delivered a presentation on “Bring Blockchain Research to production for Billions”
  • #DEVCON5 is happening! It’s our favourite time of the year, meeting with hackers & makers who #BUIDL real products & flourishing the decentralized economy- far away from the shiny lights of the cryptocurrency industry! Our engineer John Whitton and Pangaea Product Manager Gizem Çakıl are participating and networking with the Ethereum blockchain pioneers.
  • We had a great turnout ⁦at “Building The New Web” in Osaka, presenting our initiatives towards #BUIDLing the foundations for truly decentralized economies!

Business and Ecosystem

  • Huobi has selected Harmony to take part in FastTrack Phase 9 — a community incentive that pits #HarmonyONE against another project, and lets Huobi users decide which ONE will be listed first. Check here how you can get involved!
  • Only within the first few hours Harmony DAO Maker attracts 210 participants who stake more than 10M $ONE worth approximately $50.000. At the time of writing this number is 20M $ONE tokens, almost doubled within a week!
  • #HarmonyPuzzle is now launched on our Mainnet! Transactions are distributed randomly in ONE of the four shards which make our infrastructure scalable for blockchain games.

  • We have released Harmony Bridge, a gateway to swap $ONE BEP2 tokens to ERC20!

This bridge allows exchanges that currently don’t support BinanceChain to integrate Harmony $ONE among their trading pairs and provide better liquidity for our ecosystem token. Learn how it works here!
