Velo Labs October Update (10.1–10.15)
The first half of October has been an exciting time for Velo Labs. Over the past two weeks, the Velo team has made progress in all areas including partnerships, technological developments, as well as community engagement.
Velo Labs showcased a new partnership with leading stablecoin project Terra. Terra is building a new financial infrastructure that works better for everyone. The network is powered by a family of stablecoins, each pegged to major fiat currencies all algorithmically stabilized by Terra’s native governance and staking token, Luna. Bringing together Velo Labs’ federated credit exchange network and Terra’s new payment infrastructure, this strategic partnership promises to create significant synergies in building the future of blockchain-powered payment systems.
