Published

NEO Coin News

NGD (NEO Global Development) has released a monthly report for September on October 1st. The monthly reports are designed to inform NEO’s community regarding new events, progress, and development regarding the project.

Five NEO coin news in September

According to NGD’s report, NEO has had five noteworthy events in September. The first one includes the release of NEO-CLI v2.9.0. This is a full node program which represents NEO’s first client that allows the use of the actor model. I

ts refactored code is seen as a method of ‘setting the stage’ for block times with more stability. It is also expected to bring additional performance-based benefits for the entire blockchain.

The second NEO coin news of note in September includes the creation of two assets — CGAS and CNEO. These assets are expected to allow developers to transact GAS and NEO equivalents via smart contracts.

Next, NEO Global Development also launched its own bounty program. With an increase in a number of hacking incidents in the entire crypto world throughout the year, it is easy to see why NEO wants improved security for its blockchain. NGD promised rewards for flaws, with the size of a reward depending on the severity of uncovered flaws.

The fourth NEO coin news includes a competition for creative design of NEO website and icon. The contest is still on-going, and it will remain so for ten more days, ending on October 14. The prize for winning the contest is $30,000.

Finally, the last big event in September includes nine additional team members that NGD hired upon announcing job openings. Even though NGD already hired these nine individuals, it remains on the lookout for new talents, according to their recent announcement.

The report also mentions additional development, which includes a Swisscom consensus node that was added for NEO TestNet.

Past events regarding NEO community

NEO is a busy blockchain, with a lot of community events. These include hackathons, workshops, worldwide meetups, conferences, and alike. NGD participated directly in thirteen of these events during last month. The events were held in numerous countries, including Georgia, Singapore, China, Korea, Japan, Uruguay, and Malaysia.

Future events regarding NEO community

While NEO has had quite a lot of community events throughout September, even more of them are scheduled to occur in the following weeks.

One of them is the European hackathon tour, which is scheduled to begin on October 20th. The tour will start in Rotterdam and Delft, and from there, it is set to go to Berlin (October 26 and 27), and then Zurich (November 3 and 4).

Participants will receive a total of 4,050 GAS and 1,500 NEO in prizes. The prizes will be shared across three events during the tour.

On October 26, Berlin will also host NEO Meetup. Additionally, NEO has scheduled the fifth ‘Blockchain Open Course’, which is expected to be held on October 20th in Shanghai, China.

Unifi Farms Beta Launches on Unifi Protocol to Pioneer No-Stake Farming

Unifi Protocol announces the launch of Unifi Farms. The most revolutionary part of Unifi Farms is there is no staking of the liquidity token required. The public beta launch of Unifi Farms V1 will take place on not one, not two, but six different blockchains at once. 

Unifi is proud to announce the upcoming public beta launch of Unifi Farms V1 on Binance Smart Chain!

Unifi Protocol is not a clone of other DeFi projects, which has led to some very unique innovations.  Unifi Farms will continue this tradition of shattering expectations and introducing features on Unifi Farms not being offered anywhere else in DeFi!   

Unifi Farms will have several advantages over old-fashioned DeFi farms.  The one that will likely be the most revolutionary with Unifi Farms is there is no staking of the liquidity token required! Welcome to the world of true auto-farming on Unifi, where we refer to it as No-Stake Farming.

Why is farming without staking so revolutionary?

Savings! Everyone agrees the high network fees on Ethereum have a large impact on the farming rewards earned by liquidity providers.  Even on low cost networks such as Binance Smart Chain, the network fee is a cost that reduces the benefit of farming. 

To participate in most farms, the user pays at least five network fees.…

99Bitcoins takes over the “Dead Coins” project to become the cryptocurrency undertaker

Published

on

Singapore, Singapore, 17th February, 2021, // ChainWire //

99Bitcoins, an educational website that maintains a list of Bitcoin obituaries made by the media, has taken over the Dead Coins project as well. This move effectively crowns 99Bitcoins as “The undertaker of the cryptoverse”.

Deadcoins.com was established in late 2017 to document the death of thousands of altcoins that popped up during the cryptocurrency mania of that time. The idea was simple – create a list of coins that have ceased to exist after the hype died down.

A coin can become “dead” due to a variety of reasons such as its development being halted, having no one that uses or trades it, being exposed as a scam and more. While the project was initially maintained only by its founders, it was later outsourced to the cryptocurrency community which was allowed to add their own dead coins.

“I think the dead coins project is a brilliant idea that needs a bit of polishing” says Ofir Beigel, owner and founder of 99Bitcoins. “The fact that anyone can add a dead coin themselves made the list of coins very inaccurate. We’ve spent days going through the complete list and sifted out all of the coins that were buried alive, so to speak. For example, Bitcoin, Tron, Dogecoin and Tether are just some of the coins that were listed when we took…
