Layer One X Revolutionizes Blockchain Interoperability, Connecting EVM and non-EVM chains
Last Friday, Layer One X (L1X) announced a landmark development in the blockchain space by becoming the first layer one blockchain to achieve a decentralized transfer of assets between an EVM chain and a Non-EVM chain. This achievement allows the fast, secure and decentralized transfer of assets between blockchains without the use of bridges. The latest achievement was launched on the Layer One X testnet and will be fully launched once the mainnet is unveiled in August this year. Layer One X is a new layer 1 blockchain, currently in testnet, that aims to revolutionize decentralized cross-chain asset transfer. According to its website, the platform delivers the ‘Blockchain quartet’ of “interoperability, decentralization, scalability, and security” without compromising one over the other. The latest development, allowing interoperability between EVM and non-EVM chains, is a game-changer for blockchain users and developers, as it removes the need to use bridges. Speaking on the successful test, Layer One X Founder Kevin Coutinho believes the development will drastically alter the ease of asset transfer across the broader blockchain ecosystem. "We are excited for the opportunity this presents to allow projects and developers to build asynchronous features on blockchains through a decentralized source of truth,” he said. Simply, EVM chain refers to blockchain networks that are compatible with Ethereum Virtual Network (EVM), such as Polygon, Binance Smart Chain (BSC), and Ethereum itself. On the other hand, non-EVM chains are not compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine and do not share the same programming languages. Some examples of non-EVM chains include Solana, Polkadot & Cosmos. Since the advent of blockchains, transferring assets between EVM and non-EVM chains has been a challenge. As the decentralized finance ecosystem grows, the safety and security of decentralized cross-chain asset transfers becomes more and more critical. The most significant advantage that L1X brings to users is removing the need for bridges to transfer assets across blockchains. In 2022, of the $2 billion hacked from DeFi protocols, $1.6 billion was associated with bridges including Wormhole, Ronin bridge, Nomad and Wintermute. Crucially, bridges are soft targets for hackers hence the need for safer and more secure solutions. Finally, bridges are often expensive and complex solutions for cross-chain asset transfers. Apart from replacing bridges, L1X also allows the development of more interoperable DeFi solutions. The connectivity of EVM and non-EVM chains will enable developers to build DApps that work seamlessly across different blockchain networks, giving them access to a larger pool of assets. This means that decentralized applications will have more choices of assets, enhancing capital provision and efficiency. L1X shaping the future of blockchain interoperability Layer One X’s latest innovation aims to shape the future of blockchain asset transfers and the DeFi ecosystem. This new paradigm of blockchain interoperability is expected to drive increased adoption and offer additional value for users and blockchain-based businesses. "We are now focused on bringing generic messaging and event-based interoperability with the same virtual machine in the coming few months that will open markets such as decentralized identification and multi-chain utility,” Coutinho added. As interoperability across EVM and non-EVM chains become more scalable, users will be able to open up new business models and earning streams quickly and efficiently. The combination of these factors will help increase the adoption of blockchain technology by making it more accessible and easier for developers and end-users.

DefiLlama Forks Over Internal Dispute
The disagreement between the founders and a developer over the LLAMA token resulted in the forking of the DefiLlama blockchain on March 19. Token Launch Splits DeFi Platform One of the employees on the DefiLlama team forked the decentralized finance analytics platform over the weekend over a conflict regarding the company’s plans to launch a token. It all started when the founders decided to launch the LLAMA token. The matter was highly contested by a developer from the team, who claimed that the employees do not support the token launch, which is being pushed by the founders. From DefiLlama To On March 19, the developer, going by the pseudonym 0xngmi, announced on Twitter that the team would be forking the platform due to a “hostile takeover” orchestrated by the founders who are launching a token without employee support. They tweeted, “The DefiLlama team is forking Defillama…There is an ongoing attempt to launch a token that does not represent us. We don't want to be associated with it. Use and @llamadotfi instead!” The announcement clearly reveals that the team working on the DefiLlama platform over the last three years does not agree with the new course of action and has thus chosen to fork the platform and start afresh on instead. Support For Founders On the other hand, the corporate team at DefiLlama has called out the action of the developers. The Llama Corp. team said, “0xngmi and a few team members have gone rogue, they are actively looking to seize DefiLlama IP and community while inaccurately claiming the rightful owner to be doing a hostile takeover.” The founders of DefiLlama, Charlie Watkins and Ben Hauser, have received support from other key individuals involved in the DeFi space. Prominence founder and DeFi architect-extraordinaire Andre Cronje extended his support for the co-founders, claiming that they have taken the step necessary for the financial well-being of the project. He stated, “Easy to be ideological when you aren’t paying the bills. Charlie has been out of pocket funding all of defillamas expenses for years, it isn’t cheap. Watching everyone turn on everything he has done is disgusting. Him trying to stop the bleeding isn’t greed, it’s sustainability. Let’s see how long they last without his ‘free money.’ They’ll be raising or adding ads or a token soon enough.” Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Nodle Is Revolutionizing IoT Connectivity with ‘Smart Missions’
As technology advances, mobile phones have evolved from simple devices to powerful tools on which we rely in many aspects of our lives. We now use smartphones to do everything from staying in touch with friends and family to managing our finances and accessing various forms of entertainment. However, did you know that your smartphone can also be used to create an internet of things (IoT) network of connected devices? This is where Nodle comes in. What is Nodle? Before going any further, it is first important to understand what Nodle is. Nodle may best be understood as a connectivity platform that focuses on developing IoT solutions. The platform enables the development of large-scale, low-cost IoT networks based on existing infrastructure, such as smartphones and other connected devices. Nodle's ultimate objective involves making IoT technology more accessible and affordable for both businesses and individuals. Nodle realized that smartphones are capable of being utilized to build IoT network of nodes. Basically, this means that your smartphone can be used to connect other devices to the cloud, like sensors or appliances. Nodle has therefore created a platform centered on this idea, allowing users to build their own decentralized IoT networks using their smartphones. How would this work? The Nodle platform enables smartphones to function as &lsquo;nodes&rsquo; in of the network. These nodes communicate with other devices and send data to the cloud, which in turn enables the development of a massive network of interconnected devices that may be utilized in a variety of applications and practical use cases. Nodle is used in tandem with Bluetooth technology to help identify and locate stolen cars. One of the most significant advantages of using smartphones as nodes in an IoT network is that it can be extremely cost-effective. Users can create a network of connected devices without investing in expensive hardware by simply using their existing smartphones. This greatly simplifies the process by which businesses and individuals can experiment with IoT technology and develop new applications. The implementation of Smart Missions Smart Missions are an innovative way to program the Nodle Network and support new use cases while rewarding participants. One such use case is that of incentivized remote asset monitoring solutions that use IoT technology to allow businesses to track their assets in real-time from anywhere. Another notable use case was the Nodle app being used in tandem with Bluetooth technology to find stolen vehicles. In this use case, the Bluetooth identifiers in Nodle-connected smartphones were utilized to track down the cars. By completing these missions, which can also be as simple as taking a photo, rewards are distributed in the form of NODL, the platform's native cryptocurrency. Furthermore, the chain code of every Smart Mission must show a set of functions and storage values which Node Operators can then utilize to ascertain which Smart Mission to execute and that the Nodle App can use in order to accurately identify each Smart Mission. In the future, Nodle plans to bring Smart Mission developers onto the network to launch Smart Missions and dApps. The social layer of the Nodle App has also been improved upon thanks to the addition of digital community-based features like those pertaining to NFTs, a marketplace, instant communication abilities, Proof of Participation, and more. Nodle will also keep improving the utility SDK, allowing partners to have proprietary in-app NFT minting features as well. Are there any disadvantages to this? Naturally, there are some drawbacks to using smartphones in this manner. For example, battery life can be an issue because constantly transmitting data can quickly drain a phone's battery. There are also security concerns to consider, as IoT networks are susceptible to computer hacking and other forms of cyber attacks. Despite these challenges, the use of smartphones as IoT network nodes holds a lot of promise. It has the potential to revolutionize the way we connect and interact with the world around us if the proper infrastructure and security measures are in place. Going forward, we can expect even more exciting developments in the world of IoT as Nodle continues to develop its platform and explore new applications for this emerging technology. Ultimately, is Nodle worth it? There are so many platforms and initiatives these days that it&rsquo;s hard to keep track of them all and, more importantly, know which ones are worth it. With that being said, Nodle has already achieved a lot. With over 2 million DOTs staked and 8,000 contributors, the company gathered $42 million USD through a crowd loan (the contributors will get their funds back next year once the Parachain slot expires, the team also does not have access to these funds), acquiring the 11th Polkadot parachain slot. Nodle also successfully switched its Blockchain to the Polkadot network, which improved safety and decentralization. In addition, the company published a comprehensive roadmap highlighting the network's future value. Nodle has 712,778 token holders, making it the ecosystem's third largest. The native token of the company, NODL, was listed on 7 exchanges and entered the Brazilian market in 2022. The company also introduced an NFT feature on the Nodle App. With its innovative connectivity solutions, Nodle is revolutionizing the way we approach the internet of things (IoT). Whether you're a business looking to monitor your assets remotely, or an individual interested in exploring the possibilities of IoT, Nodle has something to offer. With a successful track record and a roadmap for continued growth and development, Nodle is poised to become a leader in the IoT space. With its cost-effective solutions and user-friendly platform, users will be able to unlock the full potential of IoT and take their business or personal projects to the next level.

Although the DOT cryptocurrency was launched in May 2020, Polkadot, the network, was founded in 2016 when Gavin Wood introduced the concept of an interoperable blockchain in a whitepaper. Polkadot uses parachains, which are standalone blockchains hosted on the network, and parathreads, both of which connect to the main relay chain. These parachains and parathreads can interact with other blockchains like Ethereum via bridges. 

Wood left Ethereum after serving as a co-founder and CTO and founded the Web3 Foundation in 2017, through which he launched Polkadot. Polkadot’s other co-founders include crypto experts Robert Habermeier and Peter Czaban.

Before the launch of Polkadot came the Kusama network. While both networks share almost the same underlying architecture, Kusama acts as an experimental ground for developers looking to launch products on Polkadot. In other words, Kusama is Polkadot’s cousin chain where developers can test their applications before deploying them on the main, Polkadot network. 

Polkadot’s native cryptocurrency DOT can be used for governance decisions, such as determining network fees and auction processes for parachain slots, and for staking in order to validate transactions and secure the network.

DOT price 

DOT cryptocurrency price in 2020 was range-bound between $3 to just over $6. The first major rally in DOT price started in the last few days of 2020 and continued through 2021. Between Jan. 1 and Jan. 16, 2021 the price of DOT more than doubled from around $9 to over $19 while its market cap grew from around $7.7 billion to over $15.4 billion. According to our live DOT price chart, this uptrend in the price of DOT reached a peak at around $49 on May. 15, 2021.

Thereafter, DOT coin price dropped along with the broader crypto market and fell to around $10 in July 2021. However, Polkadot price surged again in October/November 2021 as Bitcoin rallied, and DOT went on to set a new all-time high of around $55.

DOT coin remains one of the top cryptocurrencies by market cap despite price volatility but future DOT price predictions bank heavily on network adoption and Polkadot's interoperability play and depend on how Ethereum manages to solve its scalability and congestion issues moving forward.

How DOT works

The ability to process transactions simultaneously on parachains makes Polkadot much more scalable than Ethereum. According to Wood, Polkadot’s transactions per second (TPS) limit could go from 100,000 to a million. In comparison, Ethereum can only handle around 15 TPS.

Polkadot was launched with the proof-of-authority (PoA) protocol, where the network’s governance was controlled by a single user. However, validators soon joined the network and Polkadot swiftly migrated to a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism in June. 

However, Polkadot uses a different version of PoS called nominated proof-of-stake (NPoS), where nominators choose validators by staking their own assets. This is similar to the delegated proof-of-stake model but with one difference — in NPoS, nominators can lose their staked assets if they select a bad actor. 

Both validators and nominators can stake their DOT crypto holdings to participate in the consensus mechanism. DOT coin holders can also participate in the network's governance processes. 

Investors can also “bond” their DOT coins to support projects participating in parachain auctions on the Polkadot network. If a project they support wins, their bonded assets are returned at the end of the parachain lease period. Investors are also rewarded by the winning project in terms of their own tokens. However, if the supported project does not win the auction, the bonded assets are returned immediately after the auction.

Polkadot news, updates and highlights

In April 2021, Polkadot announced a significant partnership with Chainlink (LINK). This allowed developers building on Polkadot to access up-to-date and tamper-proof DOT price feed data from the Chainlink oracle.

The ecosystem’s growth was further boosted when VC firm Master Ventures announced a $30 million Polkadot Fund to invest in the most promising projects competing to win the parachain auctions.

Additionally, in March 2022, Polkadot made a jump in expanding interoperability with external blockchains. Its Acala parachain announced integration with the cross-chain bridge Wormhole, which connected the larger Polkadot ecosystem with eight major blockchains including Ethereum (ETH), Solana (SOL), Avalanche (AVAX) , Terra (LUNA) and Binance’s BNB chain (BNB)

Frequently asked questions about DOT

  • Can you mine or stake DOT coins?

Since Polkadot uses the NPoS consensus mechanism, DOT cannot be mined. However, holders can stake their DOT crypto holdings, either as nominators or validators, to earn rewards in exchange for securing the network.  

  • What are some of the best DOT wallets?

DOT coins can be stored in hardware wallets like Ledger, web wallets developed by Parity, and mobile wallets like Trust Wallet and TokenPocket.   

  • What can you do with DOT cryptocurrency?

Each DOT user gets voting rights, allowing them to participate in the network’s decision-making on aspects such as upgrade deployment and auction mechanisms. DOT holders can also stake their coins to participate in validating transactions and securing the network, either as nominators or validators. Investors can also use their DOT to support projects trying to win parachain auctions. 

  • How can you buy DOT?

The easiest way to buy DOT is through centralized exchanges like Coinbase, KuCoin, Binance, OKX, Kraken, eToro, and FTX, among others. You can also Polkaswap, a cross-chain DEX to swap between various cryptocurrencies and tokens on the Polkadot and Kusama networks.
