DAppNode | @DAppNode

DAppNode is a plug n’ play full-node solution focusing on increased privacy and user control. Currently supporting Ethereum, Bitcoin, Monero, and many other blockchains.

DAppNode got their hands on the new IntelNUC series 10 to power their DAppNode Basic and Advanced models. And they introduced the DAppNode Mini to the plug n’ play family set.

Go buy one today, incentives are coming soon!

DappNode provides the easiest way to setup a validator for Prysmatic Labs’ Topaz ETH2.0 Testnet. It literally takes a minute and a half with their DNP.

Akash | @Akashnet_

The Serverless Supercloud. Akash’s network enables a permissionless, open, and secure marketplace for unused compute cycles.

Akash announced the presale of its Akash SuperMini, a powerful portable supercomputer.  

Only 300 superminis will be available at launch. It’s a plug n’ play solution that allows node operators to effortlessly offer cloud compute and easily earn passive income in cryptocurrency (BTC, ATOM, ETH, or AKT).

The Akash Supermini features a NVIDIA Volta GPU, 512 NVIDIA CUDA Cores, 64 Tensor Cores, 3x ARM CPU with 16 Cores, 24 GB LPDDR4 Memory, 544 GB eMMC Storage, 7 inch LCD Display, and Gigabit Ethernet port.

You can reserve one today for $100, and it costs dropped from $1000 to $750. It looks pretty freaking cool, too!

Raiden Network | @raiden_network

The Raiden Network is an off-chain scaling solution, enabling near-instant, low-fee, and scalable payments. It’s complementary to the Ethereum blockchain and works with any ERC20 compatible token.

In Raiden Network’s Weekly Update 114, the Raiden Developer Team introduced a new release candidate code-named Starcraft2 for the upcoming Alderaan mainnet release. It patches bugs and makes improvements to the user interface.

In Weekly Update 113, Raiden shared that the Raiden Trust introduced an advisory board and its first grantee PISA.

BlockNative | @blocknative

Blocknative is a rich framework for DApp developers and wallet providers to access data about in-flight transactions and power user-friendly notifications.

Last week, Blocknative launched a multi-chain mempool API. This brought the ability to track in-flight Ethereum and Bitcoin transactions with a single, consistent API. Thereby, bringing the same service it provided to Ethereum developers to the Bitcoin ecosystem. For example, wallets with support for Bitcoin can leverage Notify API to send real-time notifications about incoming and outgoing transactions to its users.

3Box | @3boxdb

APIs for identity, profiles, storage, messaging, and comments.

Yesterday, 3Box unveiled 3ID Connect, an account and key management application. 3ID Connect uses the Ceramic Network 3IDProvider through the IdentityWallet SDK.  

It’s run in an iFrame that’s controlled by users and accessed by either wallets or dApps. The benefits of 3ID will improve the onboarding flow of any application.

Portis | @Portis_io

Portis is a universal Web3 interface with a user-friendly, familiar email and password login mechanism that doesn’t need a third-party installation.

Portis acquired by ShapeShift.

I think this is a good move. Portis brought a ton of immediate value to ShapeShift’s exchange by being the software wallet login option. From a user’s perspective, I no longer needed to whip out my hardware wallet to make a trade. It became the most popular way to interact with ShapeShift.

Existing ShapeShift users will continue to benefit from Portis. They’ll be able to log into Web3 applications and have access to their assets from the ShapeShift platform. “Login with ShapeShift” option will be coming soon to the DeFi ecosystem.

I am curious to see how much more Portis will be integrated into the ShapeShift ecosystem, especially with development to further expand the Portis SDK functionality over the next couple of months. Maybe KeepKey? Portis Web3 Provider? We’ll see!

Status | @ethstatus

Status is an open-source, secure, private messenger, non-custodial crypto wallet, and Web3 browser.

Status shares that a dark mode is coming soon. In Status’ Town Hall #55, we find out that quality assurance (QA) is also in progress for group chat, a new webview implementation, and bug fixes. Then, push notifications and a keycard integration is scoped to be included in Status v1.4. For more updates, you can watch Town Hall #55 below:

If you would like to recommend a new feature, share your ideas in their feature request form.

Keycard | @Keycard_

Keycard is a new type of smartcard built with an open API for simple integration with crypto wallets and hardware.

In case you missed NONCON2020, Parallele Polis published Keycard’s presentation “Why Smart Cards Matter in Crypto & What They Can Be Used For?”.

Alice | @HeyAliceApp

The WeChat of the Web3 World. It’s a SuperD/app that houses all your favorite applications, even non-crypto like duckduckgo, as mini-dapps.

In “How a ConsenSys Grant blessed our Alice journey”, Mark Pereira outlines three ongoing milestones for Alice to strive towards:

  1. Create a fully functional Android application on par with its iOS app
  2. Acquire 1000+ weekly active users
  3. Add multiple blockchain support

Alice currently supports Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Binance transactions via Trust Wallet’s WalletCore integration. What other blockchains do you think Alice will support next?

Multis | @multisHQ

Multis “the crypto-bank for companies” is an interface for an organization’s crypto-assets.

Over Easter weekend, Multis fixed a potential attack vector within their interface. In this thread, they shared that transactions cancelled from their interface aren’t cancelled on-chain, which could be exploited by malicious actors. Now, Multis users can press “cancel on-chain” from their transactions tab thereby solving this issue.

MyEtherWallet | @myetherwallet

MEW is a free, client-side interface for users to interact with the Ethereum blockchain.

The MyEtherWallet Chrome Extension (MEW CX) has been restored! It took less than a day to get it back online.

You can find the download link at mewcx.com.
