The celebration, running from October 13, 2021 to January 03, 2022, will include the sale of a collection of NFTs

New York City, United States of America, 13th October, 2021The co-inventors of the early blockchain, Drs. Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta, are joining with a team of industry-leading partners to commemorate the birth of blockchain technology, its past, present, and future. It’s a tribute to the journey and the community.

Today’s announcement marks the 30th anniversary of the public appearance of what might be called the “genesis block” of what is in fact the world’s oldest continuously running primitive blockchain, as explained here.

The celebration will conclude on January 03, 2022, the 13th anniversary of the Bitcoin genesis block.  Bitcoin’s design, as described in Satoshi Nakamoto’s white paper, Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System, relies on Haber and Stornetta’s mechanism for ensuring the integrity of all of its transactions.  In fact, three of Satoshi’s eight footnotes reference their technical papers. 

The history of the blockchain will be celebrated with a collection of NFTs that both involve and honor the founders, innovators, and thought leaders of the blockchain community. The NFTs, demonstrating the range and diversity of the blockchain ecosystem, will be auctioned through a novel mechanism and will involve a number of innovative layer-1 blockchains and their communities.

Jason Bailey, global thought leader in NFTs and founder of Artnome.com and ClubNFT, said, “Without the work of Stuart Haber and Scott Stornetta there are no NFTs, no Bitcoin, and no blockchain. I’m thrilled that they are using this opportunity to create an NFT with the goal of unifying everyone within the blockchain ecosystem in a way that I believe only they can.”

“Kadena is thrilled and honored to participate in Immutable Record’s celebration of blockchain,” said Stuart Popejoy, the co-founder and CEO of the Kadena blockchain and smart contract platform. “Immutable Record’s NFT offering drives the space forward with a multi-protocol approach that also exploits many of Kadena’s unique advantages such as institutional-quality provenance, entirely on-chain minting, and custom marketplaces.” 

“This historic drop allows us to highlight Cardano’s unique protocol capabilities during this multi-chain celebration,” said Chris J. Snook, founder, and CEO of SDK Co, a consumer-facing blockchain-based company utilizing Cardano’s platform. 

Haber and Stornetta concluded with “We are happy to join the celebration of the blockchain, and will be announcing the involvement of other leading layer-1 blockchains and thought leaders. Stay tuned. The best is yet to come.”

Cardano blockchain-based metaverse project, Cardalonia, has revealed its plans to commence the Terrania Land NFT sale in the next month. The event will take place after $LONIA token holders are accepted as the first to participate in the land minting at the end of the token presale.

Participate in the $LONIA Pre-Sale

The presale has been slated for after the highly anticipated Vasil Hard Fork combinatory event that has been postponed until a couple of weeks later. The hard fork will have a significant positive impact on the Cardano blockchain’s throughput and speed.

The Cardalonia Metaverse project has partnered with Readyplayerme and other strategic partners.

$LONIA token holders who have an active stake on Cardalonia Vault and have Ada handle NFT address can create and customize their avatars.

The customized avatars will come in handy for deployment when they can access the Metaverse game when it’s available.

Cardalonia is among the trailblazers on Cardano blockchain to build a non-custodial staking vault where users can keep their assets in their wallets, stake them, and earn attractive rewards of up to 20% APY.

While writing this post, over 7 million $LONIA tokens at an estimated value of over 500,000 ADA have been staked by investors.

Cardalonia considers itself a play-to-earn (P2E) and creator-centric platform where users have access to $LONIA token-powered CNTs and NFTs. Users have a platform where they can create, customize, and have personalized experiences on the Cardalonia metaverse.

They can simultaneously mine, hunt, and extract valuable resources such as NFTs they can trade on jpg.store and other Cardano NFT marketplace.

$LONIA tokens are multipurpose digital assets that holders can use for staking to earn 20% Annual Percentage Yield APY rewards. The staking model shares some similarities with Cardano staking although it offers higher APY.

Holders can also be early birds in the Cardalonia land NFT sale provided they meet the basic requirement of $7000 $LONIA tokens.

Join the $LONIA Token Pre-Sale

Crypto investors are invited to join the $LONIA token presale and stand a good chance of paying 1 ADA coin for 12 LONIA.

Cardalonia’s mission is to establish itself as the leading metaverse project on the Cardano ecosystem with an impressive reputation for careful approach according to a peer-reviewed system.

As a P2E project on the Cardano blockchain, Cardalonia has continued to gain immense popularity in the crypto world, thanks to its impressive attributes such as usability, novelty, and dedicated team.

Crypto Veterans Shed Light on CBDC and Stablecoins Including TUSD, Endorsing Competition in Money Market

The renowned documentary series “The Future is Now” has recently shifted its focus to the blockchain industry. The team produced its first-ever crypto-related documentary titled “Aligning the Future,” shedding light on the development of Bitcoin and other digital currencies across the globe.

The show stars H.E. Justin Sun, TRON founder and the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Grenada to the WTO, congressman William Soriano from El Salvador, and many other respected crypto leaders, who shared their insights on the future of crypto.

H.E. Justin Sun, TRON founder and the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Grenada to the WTO

“Eventually we will have three kinds of nations. One kind of nation will still use traditional fiat, but some countries will start to evolve into CBDCs, doing central bank digital currencies. But we will also see some countries like El Salvador and Caribbean countries in the future that might adopt Bitcoin or cryptocurrency as their legal tender or financial settlement infrastructure.” said H.E. Justin Sun when asked about his view of CBDCs (central bank digital currencies) across the globe.

He also added that as a believer in Hayek’s theory, he has faith in a currency market that is open to entire competition and embraces all types of currencies. Meanwhile, as a veteran in digital currency, Sun believes that CBDCs can be listed on blockchains, including Ethereum and TRON, in the way that stablecoins such as USDT, TUSD, and USDC are listed, which will undoubtedly bring the growth of the crypto industry to the next level. He also pointed out that many underprivileged people are still denied access to traditional financial services. The elimination of the threshold to financial infrastructure will benefit the whole world’s population. Blockchains, including TRON, have already provided a relatively affordable and accessible gateway to financial services and are capable of bringing more convenience to users.

Stats about TRON’s stablecoin infrastructures

Another leader who holds the same view as Sun is William Soriano, congressman of El Salvador, who quoted local facts to prove his point. El Salvador is the first country that announced plans to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender, a seemingly unconventional move backed by ample reasons. 

William Soriano, Congressman of El Salvador

As a prominent advocate for Bitcoin and blockchain, Soriano said only 30% of all Salvadorians, or roughly 1.2 million people, have access to a bank account. In contrast, 3.8 million of them now have access to a digital wallet, i.e., 80% of the population has already been financially included, a feat on its own.

Salvadorians using digital currencies can save on wire transfer fees typically required by traditional banking systems for international money transfers. This is due to the unique operation mechanism of digital currencies, where blockchain technology is being utilized for clearing and settlement. As it stands, blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies are helping more and more Salvadorians access financial resources and are surely gaining nationwide recognition. However, value stability is still a problem that Bitcoin faces due to its volatile prices.

In light of this, recent attention has been focused on such solutions that both enjoy the benefits of blockchain technology while withstanding price volatility. Stablecoins, as previously mentioned by H.E. Justin Sun, are digital currencies deployed on the blockchain and pegged to the U.S. dollar, lowering the entry barrier to financial inclusion while offering a solution to volatility.  

Although stablecoins such as USDT and USDC might enjoy higher popularity at the moment, TUSD is arguably the best-performing and most reliable. Furthermore, as the only stablecoin attested live on-chain and audited in real-time by the renowned Armanino, TUSD prioritizes industry-leading security and transparency.

In March 2021, TUSD became the first native U.S. dollar-pegged stablecoin on Avalanche. One month later, it went live on TRON, becoming the second U.S. dollar-pegged stablecoin natively launched on TRON following the stablecoin frontrunner USDT.

In addition, TUSD has been an early mover in multi-chain deployment, now supported by a succession of blockchains that include BNB Chain, Fantom, Polygon, and Cronos, receiving industry-wide endorsement. Currently, the total supply of TUSD has surged past 1.4 billion, ranking fourth among its peers.
