Here's the latest from the #cryptocurrency/#blockchain space over the past 24 hours or so...
1/ 🔧 @POANetwork [ $POA ], @CompoundFinance, and @ConsenSys have teamed up to develop Mana, an open source, full node #Ethereum client written in Elixir, a programming language that runs on Erlang Virtual Machine (i.e., BEAM).

All tradable in /ETH & /USD markets.

Certainly worth the read.…

12/ 🌱 The #Ethereum-powered @Cent, a social network whereby content creators can generate income, published their "most significant update yet," introducing an incentive mechanism known as 'Seeding'.

"Incentivized giving" > altruistic tipping. Neat idea!…
13/ 🔒 @CodexProtocol x @TagsmartHQ
