A Modern Dream of Paradise

I think many of us have found ourselves at a time in life when you stop, look in the mirror, and don’t recognize yourself in the reflection you see through it.

Could you have made different decisions? I’m sure you could have.
Should you have had more discernment? No doubt about it.

Many “ifs” and many “but” crowded your mind, greying the sun and weighing down your steps.

At least until you lean out from a terrace and watch the city lights in the distance.

And take a deep breath for the first time, in a long time

The truth is that no one, especially now, can know for sure what the future holds for them.
I myself have lived with illusions for a long time.
I thought I had achieved every goal desirable by a human being.
I had a family, a home, a good job.
Too bad that sometimes, by dint of closing your eyes to what doesn’t work instead of facing problems and solving them, you end up with nothing but sand between your fingers. …

the Story so Far & Updates from the Chainapsis Team

One of the main obstacles that separate the blockchain from a real mass adoption has always been the medium-high level of technical knowledge necessary to fully understand the actions that are accomplished on-chain. Much progress has been made over the past few years, in pursuit of bringing more and more people closer to this world and thus making this new technology an inclusive commodity accessible to the whole of us.

Although this goal has not yet been fully achieved, thanks to Chainapsis’ team today we can proudly say that we have made a huge step in this direction.

2020.10 — Community & Technical Recap

Dear Community,

The long-awaited moment has finally arrived:
IRITA Hub has been successfully integrated to the BSN Interchain Communications Hub
as the first step towards an Interchain Future and Bifrost has entered Phase-1 unlocking new functionalities & rewards for those who participate in the incentivized testnet.

Seen from the outside, though the incredible achievements, it doesn’t seem that things have changed much in the IRISnet ecosystem, don’t you think?
No acclaims, pompous announcements, overwhelming marketing campaigns: just the good old hard work that is done day after day by Core team, Bianjie.

Maybe this is their secret: keeping the eyes fixed on the horizon and living the end of each challenge as an exciting new beginning.
For those who work with passion there will always be another line of code to fix, another implementation to finish …
Perfection does not exist, but with dedication nothing is impossible.

Dear Community,

Welcome to our Monthly Update!
September has passed with the same sense of expectation that usually grabs me when I wait for Christmas Day (which, if you’re wondering, is by far my favorite):
Time seems to crystallize and the fateful day never seems to come.
This is a little bit the same for the IRISnet community right now: there are some incredible things in store for us next month, so big that sometimes we can’t really realize their impact. …

among the many details revealed about the collaboration with BSN (mark 31st October!), the new possibility to develop a dAPP through the Public Chain Node Service, and the launch of Cosmos’s Stargate-1(where IRISnet is one of the first 4 validators) we never had a break!
I’m really happy to see so many new people in our community, and I would like to thank them for bringing enthusiasm and new opportunities for dialogue inside our social channels. …

Interchain Foundation Inaugural Technical Advisory Board

Traduzione tratta dall’articolo originale “Inaugural Technical Advisory Board scritto da Interchain Foundation.

Il mese di luglio ha scandito la fine della prima fase del rinnovato programma di finanziamento della Interchain Foundation.
Questo include aggiornamenti nella sua infrastruttura, una cadenza ora trimestrale e un’ulteriore supervisione nel processo di selezione dei progetti che richiedono accesso ai grant da parte di un gruppo di “esperti esterni”, il Technical Advisory Board (TAB).
I risultati sono stati fonte di ispirazione e hanno prodotto un gruppo di progetti ed iniziative ben curate che hanno contribuito in modo efficace alla concretizzazione della visione dell’ICF.
