Decentralized Social (DESO) Is Now Available on LBank Exchange
Road Town, BVI, May 26th, 2023, ChainwireLBank Exchange, a global digital asset trading platform, listed Decentralized Social (DESO) on May 24, 2023. For all users of LBank Exchange, the DESO/USDT trading pair is officially available for trading.Reimagining the world of social, DeSo is the first layer-1 blockchain built from the ground up to decentralize social media and scale storage-heavy apps to billions of users. Its native token Decentralized Social (DESO) was listed on LBank Exchange at 3:00 UTC on May 24, 2023, to further expand its global reach and help it achieve its vision.Introducing DeSoDeSo, short for "decentralized social", is a new layer-1 blockchain built from the ground up to decentralize social media for billions of users. It is empowering an internet that’s creator-led, user-owned, and open to millions of developers around the world to build off one another.Today, there’s only a handful of big-tech companies that own and control all the information people consume online. DeSo puts the ownership back in the hands of users, not platforms. User’s identity, profile, content, and social graph can now be owned by themselves in a completely censorship-resistant way.The DeSo blockchain supports not only traditional social features like creating profiles and posts, but also novel blockchain-native features like social tokens (creator coins), tipping, and NFTs. These features unlock vast new categories of money-enabled products, from social NFT experiences to influencer stock markets. These features enable creators to more effectively monetize their content and connect with their followers on DeSo-powered apps.In addition, developers can build in a gasless, permissionless, and transparent environment where everything is open and on-chain for ultimate accessibility and composability. DeSo is built to support storage-heavy or infinite-state applications, opening up a new world of non-financial-based web3 apps that weren’t possible before. New users can signup to DeSo apps like Diamond and earn $DESO for simply posting and engaging with other users on the platform.DeSo's biggest advantage lies in the fact that it is not a general-purpose blockchain. Instead, it supports a narrow set of social-oriented features that it implements on bare metal, using custom indexes that every node builds during consensus when it syncs from its peers. This allows the DeSo blockchain to reach highly-scalable storage capabilities that are unparalleled by any general-purpose blockchain. For instance, the cost of 1 GB of on-chain storage on DeSo is as low as 1 DeSo, whereas even the best existing smart contract infrastructures require millions ($1,000,000+) of dollars to achieve the same.With DeSo, people can now imagine, build and experience the next generation of web3 social. In the same way, people have seen Bitcoin and Ethereum decentralize finance, DeSo is now enabling this for social.Deso is coming off a series of remarkable launches including their MetaMask integration which makes it easy for Ethereum users to login to DeSo apps in just a few clicks. Additionally, they’ve launched the groundbreaking MegaSwap, a anonymous no login cross-chain swapper for crypto, and OpenFund, which makes it easy for crypto projects to launch startups and get funded in just a few clicks.Looking forward, they are gearing up for their transition to Revolution Proof-of-Stake, a monumental development that will enhance energy efficiency by 99% and establish DeSo as one of the most deflationary protocols in existence. Soon, you’ll have the opportunity to stake your $DESO while earning rewards for securing the network. This innovative PoS mechanism enhances the schemes employed by Ethereum, Cosmos, Flow, and Solana, demonstrating DeSo’s commitment to technological advancement.Keep checking back as DeSo prepares even more announcements as they become a sovereign blockchain that enables anyone from anywhere in the world to launch decentralized, censorship-resistant apps that scale to billions of users!About DESO TokenDecentralized Social (DESO) is the native token of DeSo ecosystem, which currently has 2M wallets and 85M transactions across 100+ applications built, resulting in $2B in transaction volume. Transactions on DeSo are virtually gasless, costing one-ten thousandth of a cent.In addition, DeSo just announced a groundbreaking Proof-of-Stake mechanism called Revolution, leading to 99% more energy efficiency and becoming a far more deflationary protocol than has ever existed. Once completed, DeSo will inch closer to its final form, "The Sovereign Internet," featuring a "Decentralized Web," enabling developers to deploy censorship-resistant storage-intensive applications at scale from anywhere in the world.DESO token was listed on LBank Exchange at 3:00 UTC on May 24, 2023, investors who are interested in DeSo can easily buy and sell it on LBank Exchange now.

Fahrenheit To Acquire Celsius’ Assets After Successful Bid
According to court filings published on Thursday, Crypto Consortium Celsius has won the bid to acquire bankrupt crypto lender Celsius Network. The Fahrenheit consortium beat fellow bidder NovaWulf, with the Blockchain Recovery Investment Consortium shortlisted as a backup. Fahrenheit’s Successful Bid According to court filings, Celsius Network’s assets were previously valued at $2 billion. Fahrenheit’s winning consortium is backed by Arrington Capital, mining company US Bitcoin Corp, Steven Kokinos, Ravi Kaza, and Proof Group. With the bid secured, the consortium will acquire Celsius’s staked cryptocurrencies, along with its institutional loan portfolio, mining unit, and additional alternative investments. Additionally, the consortium must pay a deposit of $10 million within three days to clinch the deal. Fahrenheit will also be required to provide the management team, capital, and technology to establish and operate the new regulatorily compliant public company. The deal will also see the newly formed company receive a significant amount of liquid cryptocurrency. This amount is speculated to be between $450 and $500 million. US Bitcoin Corp will also lead the construction of numerous Bitcoin mining facilities, including a 100-megawatt plant. In an announcement, Alan Carr and David Barse, members of the Special Committee of the Board, stated, “We are very pleased that our competitive auction process produced a positive result for customers, including, most prominently, hundreds of millions of dollars in lower management fee savings and increased liquid cryptocurrency distributions to Celsius’ customers. We appreciate the robust interest that the Celsius platform has received from competing bidders and look forward to working with Fahrenheit to expedite the restructuring and distribute recoveries to creditors.” They further added, “The dynamic engagement in our auction provided us with excellent options for our exit from chapter 11. We are grateful for the collaboration of the Committee, and with our path now set, we are looking forward to enabling our customers to move forward from this process.” Regulatory Approval Awaited While the bid has been accepted by Celsius and a committee of its creditors, it still requires regulatory approval before it can be finalized. Martin Glenn, the Bankruptcy Court Judge, had already warned of regulatory roadblocks that could hamper the acquisition of Celsius, similar to how it had scuppered a similar deal. For context, the Judge was referring to the agreement between Binance US and Voyager. After Federal officials opposed the deal, Binance US had to terminate its purchase of bankrupt crypto lender Voyager’s $1 billion in assets. Binance cited an uncertain and hostile regulatory climate for scuppering the deal. Celsius and BRIC Celsius had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July 2022 after it emerged that the lender had a $1.2 billion hole in its balance sheet. Initially, digital asset investment firm Novawulf was announced as the winning bidder but eventually lost out. However, Celsius also announced that it had secured a backup bid from the Blockchain Recovery Investment Consortium (BRIC). The backup would act as a contingency plan should there be any hiccups. Celsius announced the backup bid on its Twitter handle, stating, “Earlier today, the Celsius auction concluded, and Fahrenheit was selected as the winning bid. The BRIC bid was selected as the backup bid. The Committee appreciates the efforts of Celsius and all bidders for their efforts, which generated significant value for Celsius users. The Committee will share more info a lot about the winning bid and backup bid soon.” In the event of BRIC having to step in, it would be required to establish a publicly traded mining business, giving Celsius creditors complete ownership of equity interests and a potential management contract with GlobalXDigital.

Multichain Team’s Deafening Silence Sparks Concern Among Users
The silence emanating from Multichain’s leadership has amplified rumors, leading to significant unease and uncertainty among protocol users. At present, several of Multichain’s cross-chain pathways remain down, leading to a major pile-up of transactions on the protocol. Multichain’s Radio Silence The radio silence from the Multichain team has left users searching for answers, with the protocol currently holding $1.5 billion in total value locked (TVL). Multichain face a fifth day of outages and transactions that are in limbo, primarily due to multiple cross-chain pathways that are still offline. These include Polygon zkEVM, Kava, and zkSync. Initially, the team stated that this was caused due to an upgrade that was being patched. However, this explanation was revised, with the cause outlined as an ambiguous explanation of “force majeure.” The uncertainty and radio silence comes against the backdrop of unverified rumors circulating on Twitter that the protocol’s core leadership could possibly be under arrest in China. Co-founder of Multichain, DJ Qian, took to Twitter, stating he had asked Multichain CEO Zhaojun and its founding partner Xu Guochang if they could provide any help or explanation. “From yesterday to today, I received a lot of greetings. Many people sent messages asking me if I was okay. Thank you for your concern. Of course, I’m fine. At the same time, I also hope that there is nothing serious about multichain. Although I am not ashamed of what Zhaojun did before, after all, I brought Zhaojun and Guochang into the industry. I asked Guochang for some information to see if he could provide technical or other help. Well, the most important thing is the safety of user assets and the safety of people.” Leadership Under Arrest? With rumors of the team’s arrest circulating on Twitter, Multichain’s VP of Strategic Partnerships stated in a Telegram group message that he was not aware if Chinese authorities had actually detained the protocol’s leadership. Protocol CEO Zhaojun did not reply to any messages on the group in question nor to direct queries. The project’s Discord server and other Telegram groups are dealing with similar uncertainty, with no updates about the project or its future. All community members have been told to wait for any further updates. MULTI Token Plummets With the uncertainty surrounding the project, the protocol’s native MULTI token has continued its downward trajectory. With users complaining that their transactions had been stuck since Sunday, the team assured them that their funds were safe and they were working to resolve the issue. David Who, a community manager with Multichain, had given users an update, stating, “At this stage, we can’t be sure when it will be fully fixed. However, our user’s funds are safe, and pending transactions would “pass through automatically and instantly” after resolution.” However, with no resolution, the token’s price has continued to drop. Currently, the MULTI token is down over 28% and is trading at $3.80. Other Projects React Several projects have responded to the situation unfolding at Multichain. Coinflux Network became the latest to respond, stating that it had suspended Multichain’s co-mint privileges as a precautionary measure. This would prevent Multichain from minting new tokens on the project’s blockchain. Furthermore, Coinflux also added that it would work with users to mitigate any losses that may arise. Crypto Investment firm HashKey Group also revealed that it had moved $250,000 from Multichain to Meanwhile, Tron founder Justin Sun also revealed that he had withdrawn 470,000 of the USDD stablecoin from the protocol. Cryptocurrency exchange Binance also swung into action, announcing that it was suspending deposits for 10 bridged tokens following days of transactions being stuck in limbo. This impacted several token pairs, including Polkastarter (POLS), Alpaca Finance (ALPACA), (AVA), Spell (SPELL), Fantom (FTM), Alchemy (ACH), Beefy (BIFI), SuperVerse (SUPER), Harvest Finance (FARM) and DeXe (DEXE). Binance’s announcement will impact users of bridged tokens on Ethereum, Avalanche, BNB Smart Chain, and Fantom. Fantom Foundation also moved to limit its exposure, withdrawing $2.4 million in liquidity of the MULTI token on the SushiSwap DEX. Andre Cronje, Fantom Foundation Director, explained that Fantom had to act due to the uncertainty surrounding Multichain and was withdrawing the funds out of caution. Cronje added, “No point to LP at times of uncertainty. You can see in the wallet the funds haven’t been sold. As soon as Multichain is able to release a statement around this and clear it up, we will LP again.” Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

EU seeks to limit leverage bets in crypto
In a recent announcement, an EU watchdog emphasised the need for measures to prevent excessive leveraged bets on crypto assets. The European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB) has made a range of recommendations with which to address the challenges faced by the crypto sector. Among the proposed actions, the ESRB suggested implementing stringent regulations such as mandatory regular reports from all companies involved in crypto assets. Additionally, it highlighted the necessity of specific rules tailored to the largest firms operating within this space. The cryptocurrency industry has experienced a rollercoaster ride over the past 18 months, marked by significant fluctuations in the price of Bitcoin and with the collapse of various crypto institutions. Highlighting the potential rapid emergence of systemic risks, the ESRB stressed the urgency of addressing these issues. As highlighted in a Reuters article earlier today, the report cautioned that if the industry's exponential growth trajectory persists, crypto-assets could pose a threat to financial stability. Proposing an amendment to existing EU regulations, the ESRB recommended the introduction of leverage limits for investment funds exposed to crypto-assets. By curbing the extent of leverage employed, the aim is to mitigate the potential risks associated with highly leveraged bets. Furthermore, the ESRB called for higher collateral requirements for distributed finance products and stablecoins, further bolstering risk management within the crypto space. While these recommendations are not legally binding, they hold significant weight and are expected to influence the EU's future endeavours in refining its regulatory framework for crypto assets. As the EU revisits its markets in cryptoassets regulation (MiCA), it is likely to take these suggestions into serious consideration.

Stably Launches #USD as the First BRC20 Stablecoin on the Bitcoin Network
Renton, United States, May 25th, 2023, ChainwireStably, a leading Stablecoin-as-a-Service (SCaaS) and fiat on/off-ramp infrastructure provider for Web3 projects, is aiming to revolutionize the nascent Bitcoin ordinals market by launching its US Dollar (USD)-backed stablecoin, Stably USD, as a natively-issued BRC20 token under the symbol #USD. This groundbreaking development marks a critical milestone in the exponentially growing Bitcoin ordinals ecosystem that is now reaching half a billion dollars in total market capitalization in less than six months.#USD is a BRC20 standard stablecoin created via the Bitcoin ordinals protocol which was introduced in January 2023 after the recent Taproot upgrade. BRC20 tokens use a technique called ordinal inscriptions to attach data to individual "satoshis," the smallest unit of a Bitcoin. These satoshis can then represent anything from digital art ownership to “meme coins” and even stablecoins.According to Stably, every #USD token is backed 1-to-1 with USD in a collateral account managed by a US-regulated custodian for the benefit of KYC/AML-verified token holders. Monthly reports for the account are also conducted by a third-party stablecoin attestor to ensure #USD tokens are always fully collateralized with USD."When I met Domo, the creator of the BRC20 standard, at the Bitcoin 2023 conference in Miami, I told him about our upcoming plans for #USD," said Kory Hoang, Stably’s CEO and Co-Founder. “He thought it was great and funny how we are creating a stablecoin on Bitcoin to enable Bitcoin trading on-chain… With a stablecoin built on Bitcoin. I’m still chuckling about it to this day, actually. In just one week after that, however, we made it happen!” The integration of BRC20 #USD into the Bitcoin network is part of Stably’s mission to power the next billion Web3 users with a seamless fiat-to-crypto and stablecoin onramp to all popular and emerging blockchain networks. The company’s upcoming collaborations with prominent ordinals and BRC20 projects, including UniSat–the world’s largest decentralized wallet/marketplace for ordinals–and Ordzaar–Asia’s first decentralized ordinals marketplace project, reflect Stably's aspiration to drive global innovation and adoption toward decentralized finance on the Bitcoin network, or “BitFi.” Additionally, Stably’s engineers are now exploring the new ORC20 standard for Bitcoin ordinals, which could significantly enhance the token properties of #USD once implemented.#USD can be issued/redeemed with Fedwire, SWIFT, USDC, and USDT by KYC-verified users across 200+ countries/regions currently, including up to 44 US states.

Decentraland (MANA) is one of those cryptocurrencies that has seen immense growth and popularity in recent years thanks to the renewed "metaverse" mania. Built as a decentralized virtual reality platform, Decentraland is a virtual world with its own cryptocurrency, MANA, powered by the Ethereum blockchain as well as NFT parcels called LAND.  Decentraland users can create, experience, and monetize their content and applications in the shared virtual world.

The Decentraland Foundation, the entity behind the development of Decentraland, was founded in 2015 by Ariel Meilich, project lead, and Esteban Ordano, tech lead. The Decentraland platform went live on Ethereum in 2017, following an initial coin offering (ICO) of $26 million for future operations, with MANA coined as its official cryptocurrency. The network launched its closed beta in 2019 and opened to the public in February 2020. Prior to its launch, Decentraland created the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) to hand over the management and governance of the project to its users, ensuring no single entity has control over the platform.

Decentraland aims to combine blockchain technology and augmented reality to create a 3D virtual world where users can develop their avatars, communicate, engage and take part in commerce — all via traditional web browsers.

MANA price

According to our MANA/USD live price chart, the token saw a noticeable price spike in Q3 of 2020 — going from under $0.05 to over $0.13. 

The rally for MANA price continued into 2021, and by April of the year, MANA was trading above $1.6 MANA's price did correct with the broader market during mid-2021, and it traded below $0.40 at one point.

However, as the market sentiment grew bullish in autumn of 2021 with BTC price soaring to an all-time high of $69,000, Decentraland’s token saw elevated trading volumes. MANA's price rallied in line with its metaverse competitors The Sandbox (SAND) and Enjin Coin (ENJ), going from $0.8 on Oct. 16 to $5.9 on Nov. 25, with a gain of 670%. With this, MANA price set a new all-time high and reached a fully diluted valuation of $12 billion. 

The crypto market witnessed another severe crash near the end of 2021, continuing this nosedive into 2022 with MANA losing a big portion of its gains alongside other major cryptocurrencies like BTC and ETH.

How MANA works

The Decentraland platform utilizes the Ethereum blockchain and its native token, MANA, allows users to buy and sell digital land while exploring, creating, and playing games in its virtual world. Over the course of time, the platform has incorporated in-game payments, peer-to-peer communication, and interactive apps. 

Decentraland uses two different tokens for its ecosystem:

MANA: An ERC-20 token, MANA, can be used for ecosystem governance, making transactions within the metaverse, and buying LAND and other virtual goods. Based on the Ethereum blockchain, the token is secured by an extensive decentralized network of miners that work together with a large number of nodes to secure the blockchain. MANA requires an Ethereum-supported wallet to interact and experience the full potential of Decentraland’s 3D virtual reality game world.

LAND: An ERC-721 non-fungible token (NFT), LAND, is used to identify and maintain a ledger of land parcels representing digital real estate within the virtual world.

To safeguard digital property, Decentraland uses the consensus layer, which maintains a ledger and tracks the ownership of each land parcel, using an Ethereum-based smart contract. The Decentraland gameworld is divided into a total of 90,601 independent parcels of LAND, each assigned a unique coordinate, owner, and what the landowner serves. 

While keeping track of each parcel of LAND is key, it is also important to ensure players and users have a smooth communication line and building experience, Decentraland’s content layer uses 3 rendering files to distribute the content needed to render the world: 

Content files: References to 3D meshes, textures, audio files, and any other related content required to render the parcel. 

Scripting entry points: Specifies how the content is placed, its behavior, and animations within the parcel.

P2P interactions: As the title suggests it creates a means of interaction such as messaging, voice chat, and sharing coordinates. 

Decentraland also offers a marketplace where players and creators alike can buy, sell or transfer wearable items, accessories, unique names, avatars, or any other in-game virtual asset.

MANA news, updates, and highlights

Global tech giant Samsung added support for VR platform Decentraland on its blockchain wallet app on July 21, 2020. Samsung launched this crypto wallet back in 2019 for its signature phone Galaxy S10.

In July. 2020 comic artist Jose Delbo, who has worked for both Marvel and DC kicked off a week-long exhibition in Decentraland. Jose, credited for creating Wonder Woman for DC comics released a number of digital images in the VR world for viewers at the in-game gallery called MakersPlace, with each proof of ownership recorded using blockchain technology.

In late November 2021, a digital plot in the Decentraland Metaverse was sold for a whopping $2.43 million or 618,000 MANA tokens — more than what most homes go for in NYC, and San Francisco. The prior record for the most expensive virtual plot was around $913,000.

  • Can you mine or stake MANA?
