Zap December Update 2018
Unlike others in this fast emerging space, we are one of the few blockchain tokens to be connected to a real live functioning product. We have taken our whitepaper and turned it into something tangible. With the technology in place, the seeds have been rooted and the platform can continue to grow.
Our mainnet contract release is set for January 2019!
This beta release advances the platform off the kovan testnet so that real ethereum can now be used!
Soon, some of the first oracles will be developed and utilized with the beta mainnet release.
Here’s how to be one of the first to be able to interact with the live Zap platform.
- This allows you to create a wallet that is capable of bonding or redeeming Zap with an oracle on OracleMarketCap.com.
- Here is where you can discover oracles to bond to through MyOracleWallet.com.
- This is where developers will find a template for designing, initiating, and maintaining their own oracle.
- This is a template for creating onchain oracles in addition to smart contracts that connect to the Zap platform.
- The web admin is for managing Zap accounts and for creating and bonding to existing services.
- CLI for interacting with the Zap platform, for managing Zap accounts, and creating and bonding to existing services from the command line.
As a resource, here is a three part video series from oracle developer Max Inciong where he details how to create an oracle through Zap Oracle Template and set bonding curves.

Nick Spanos OpEd in Bitcoin Magazine
Zap Founder Nick Spanos wrote an Op-Ed which was recently featured in Bitcoin Magazine titled “Bitcoin Is a Declaration of Our Monetary Independence.” The piece was part of a special edition publication celebrating the tenth anniversary of bitcoin.
“We have to look in the mirror every day and ask ourselves: What have we done to help Bitcoin? I don’t know about you but before I die in this cage, I want to run free in the wild, and Bitcoin is the key to our freedom after we fight for it.”
