Monthly Update (Apr 20)

Web3 Grant to Bridge Cosmos and Polkadot, Celo and Free TON Betanet Launches, Liquid Staking Report Draft, and More!

Dear readers,

Welcome to the roundup of another busy month for the Chorus One team. The ecosystem’s move to Proof-of-Stake and advances in blockchain interoperability are taking place at an increasing pace.

  • We made significant progress on our Web3 Foundation grant to build a part of bridge that would allow Substrate (Polkadot) and Cosmos SDK blockchains to interoperate. Learn more in the official announcement.

  • We published the first draft of our Liquid Staking Research Report. Feel free to read and leave comments here, or watch the recording of Felix presenting results in the latest working group call.

  • We joined the Free TON community and are participating in the decentralized launch of the Free TON network. Learn more about this community-driven effort to launch a blockchain based on the TON protocol here. The first version of the betanet launched today and can be observed here.
