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.

🌈 Dear IRISgardians,

It’s Almost Time to Upgrade!

What is happening is so incredible that sometimes I pinch myself to make sure it is not a dream.
After intense months of work, sleepless nights spent between one call and another, free time invested in testing every single component, countless people involved, and resources invested, we are there:

The Cosmos Hub Governance Proposal #37 announced the upgrade to Hub-4 and the first step of the integration of the Interchain Protocol on the Cosmos Network, which will happen on February 18th, 2021!

No longer a vision of a few, no longer a…

IRISnet Community, here we go!

After a year full of progress, innovation, study and growth, Stargate, the fateful Governance proposal that will unlock the upgrade to Cosmos Hub 4 and propagate IBC throughout the ecosystem, is just days away!

Get ready for the final rush: once you take off, there’s no turning back!

But even in this moment of collective excitement, I feel like I have to tell you the thing that I carry in my heart the most from 2020: seeing the IRISnet community grow not only as a collective but also and especially as individuals who bring to…

Governance in the Hubs is becoming a more and more fundamental component in the whole evolutionary process of the project itself: through voting, it is possible to upgrade, fund a team with tokens from the Community Pool to create unique tools, and much more.

Needless to say, as much as voting is a right, it is also a duty.

With the advent of the big exchanges as validators in the chains in fact, we can see how they never take a position and their abstention puts at serious risk the evolution of the project.

Although the discussion about the importance…

Dear IRISnet Community,

November has been full of moments of information and growth for the whole community thanks to the AMA with Mr. Henry Ma, BSN’s Chief Architect & CTO of Red Date Technology, and the meetings of the Ti-Labs Working Group in collaboration with Kuchain.

One thing is certain: it is not always easy to keep up with all the improvements that happen within the ecosystem because of the avant-garde nature of the network itself.

It is even harder to be fully aware of the remarkable progress made by the Core Team as these are truly technical topics.
