February Node Conference Successfully Held
On Feb Node Conference, the IOST Foundation representative delivered a speech on the following topics:
- Technical Development:
- IOST’s cross-chain bridge is under construction and will be finished by the end of Q2
- Our ledger hardware wallet integration is also under development and will be finished in early March
- The one-click token launch tool was released last week, which has attracted hundreds of users to engage. IOST also welcomed our Jetstream wallet, developed by the QED team from Korea last month and received overwhelmingly positive feedback.
2. Important Progress
- The launch of the AIOU Charity Information Disclosure Platform was a huge step in IOSTs collaborative effort to battle against the coronavirus outbreak. In partnership with Wuhan Red Cross and the local government, IOST is now storing all donations and distribution information in our consortium blockchain and disclosing them on the platform in a real-time manner. It is now integrated with Wechat for people to check and will be shown on AIOU’s homepage soon. Moving forward, Aiou will continue its exploration in charity together with more cities in order to increase transparency in this field using blockchain technology.
From here, the foundation would like to express our gratitude to all partner nodes for your participation. In the future, IOST will hold a partner node conference every month for better communication, engagement and progress updates with our valuable partners.
