Æternity: World’s First Blockchain-Tracing Platform For Medical Cannabis Is On Æternity, The Launch Of Crypto Tipping Platform for Social Creators, SuperHero Live Æid
Biweekly update 19th May — 2nd June
Hello, æternists! It is our brief recap of the recent news and events that happened within the æternity æcosystem! Today’s update is mostly focused on the social mission of æternity. Over the period of COVID-19 lockdown, they managed not only to educate the community with regular online Superhero gatherings but also to release several projects to support social creators. Launched on æternity, an open-source, public blockchain, the Superhero project is a decentralized peer-to-peer social sharing initiative for tipping, patronage, and sponsoring user content or digital goods. A new platform will allow users, including artists and musicians, to boost exposure to their content and receive tips in the form of tokens — all while keeping their personal data private.
What’s more, taking a step towards building a future valuing creatives and content makers, Superhero introduced a virtual festival: Live Æid. Viewers were asked to pay a minimal entry fee to the festival at the door and will be able to give tips directly to artists or charities once inside. This will allow for equal distribution among all the artists involved in the festival, fairly reinforcing that content created and viewed online is the creator’s livelihood. Regarding the current world situation, these initiatives are extremely crucial!
Furthermore, the world’s first blockchain-tracing platform for medical cannabis built on æternity will be deployed starting June and July — right on time for the planting phase for cannabis in the region. Created by blockchain development group Inmind, the platform enables complete traceability of medical cannabis from cultivation to harvest, down to packaging and distribution. This effort aims to raise security standards for international quality produce. Future developments plan to tap on the advanced features of æternity technology such as Oracles and State Channels.
The development of æternity is exceptionally stable: the team continues to contribute to the bright future of the project remotely, but regularly. For more specific GitHub activity, check the update below! The number of social networks’ subscribers, fans, and active chat participants is prone to grow. Stay safe and see You in two weeks!

“Artists, developers, educators, medical groups, environmentalists and non-profits are just some of the wide-ranging groups that are being eyed as potentially benefiting from the Superhero platform. Donations for quality content can be sent to the creator without needing to share third party data or pay transaction fees to a middleman, Aeternity said.”
