0/ Left feeling glum after yet another strong #cryptocurrency sell-off? Then this thread's for you!

Below are 22 #blockchain-related things that caught my eye over the past ~24 hours.

Regardless of price performance, this #crypto space just keeps on developing!
1/ 🎮 @ThetaToken parent @SLIVERtv360 formed a partnership with Tencent Games to launch a 24-7 live #eSports channel powered by #Theta rewards.

@RoE_Tencent players can purchase in-game items and upgrade using the $THETA #crypto token!
2/ 💸 @AragonProject's six Nest grantees shared their project's quarterly progress reports.

See link for latest on @DAppNode, @EspressoOrg, @Frame_ETH, @Pando_Network, @PryLabs and @SpaceDecentral. All are improving the #Aragon and #Ethereum ecosystems!…
3/ ⚖️ Decentralized #crypto-collectibles marketplace @ProjectOpenSea announced support for @MakerDAO's $Dai #stablecoin.

Now volatility-averse #OpenSea users can use Dai to make offers, create listings, and buy items. Neat!
4/ 💪 Furthering their collab., @IBM and @Columbia launched the 'IBM Blockchain Accelerator' and 'Columbia Blockchain Launch Accelerator'.

The former will target those with more enterprise-oriented #blockchain applications. For the latter, more so abstract, pre-seed projects.
5/ 🇰🇷 @AERGO_io creator Blocko announced the establishment of a collaboration with various top research institutions incl. the South Korea-based Electronics & Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) on consensus algorithm research and validation.…
6/ 🗣️ Wassa wassa WASSSM.

In your copious hours of #crypto research, you've probably been seeing the term #Wasm (WebAssembly) appearing more and more.

No clue what it is? @PolkadotNetwork does. They've written a thorough post on why they chose to use it.…
7a/ 🚀 RSK Labs parent RIF Labs launched @RIF_OS, an off-chain infra. protocol deployed on #Rootstock's RSK Smart Contract Network (RSKSmart).

Is an all-in-one #dApp development environment; helping bridge the gap between #blockchain technologies and mass adoption.
7b/ 🤔 Upon @RIF_OS' launch tweet (via @YacineTerai), a not-so-subtle hint was dropped by @Dieguito (CEO & Co-Founder, RSK Labs) vis-à-vis integrating the RIF Data Feeds protocol with leading decentralized oracle network, @Chainlink [ $LINK ]. Watch this space!
8/ 📰 Over at @DEXONFoundation, they revealed that #DEXON's DAG-based consensus algorithm was uploaded onto the International Association for Cryptologic Research's (@IACR_News) website.

Check it out by clicking below!
9/ 🙋🏻‍♂️ @AdEx_Network [ $ADX ] welcomed @DeanEigenmann (Founder, @HarbourProtocol) onboard as an advisor.

The #blockchain auditor and Solidity developer will provide insights vis-à-vis code review, whitepaper updates and more, according to an announcement out of #AdEx.
10/ 💅 @MessariCrypto got a design overhaul as part of its Messari 2.0 upgrade.

The release also saw the open data library/curator finalize the integration of its slick, mobile-optimized @OnChainFX Dashboard. Read @twobitidiot's summary below!…
11/ 🔚 @Summa_one's world-first cross-chain Dutch auction passed with flying colours!

Participants placed bids on the #Ethereum #blockchain using #bitcoin [ $BTC ] for a chance to secure one of ten limited edition NFTs.
12/ 🗳️ Having won its recent Community Vote, @PickACrypto published a research report on Australian #blockchain startup @HorizonState [ $HST ].

13/ 🤝 @TomochainANN [ $TOMO ] x @Terra_Money

Beyond providing one another with ongoing technical support, both will work to implement Terra's Cross-Chain Stability Mechanism, allowing #TomoChain #dApp devs to easily incorporate the Terra price-stable #cryptocurrency as an MoE.
14/ 🇨🇳 Former Chinese #crypto exchange @HuobiGlobal re-established a connection to its homeland, creating a Communist Party committee via its 'Beijing Lianhuo Information Service' subsidiary.

First known #blockchain co. to set up a party branch in China, per the SCMP.
15/ 🐨 @IvyKoin's [ $IVY ] #cryptocurrency-based payments platform ivyPay is now live in Australia!

The ivyPay launch comes via a partnership with @HiveEx. Another means by which Aussies can use their #crypto to pay bills or convert into fiat!…
16/ 💰 @Crypto_Writing published 'The State of Crypto Funds', what they describe as "a data-driven report offering unparalleled insights on current investment trends from #crypto funds."

An apt description indeed! An exceptional resource from @FMoulin7.…
17/ ⌛️ All it took was a handful of tweets by @KyleSamani (M.P., @MulticoinCap) to put forward a convincing argument that the "ICO party is over" meme prompted by Friday's SEC actions is considerably delayed.

Kyle believes it ain't all bad news, though.
18/ 🗞️ In some fully siq numerology, issue #17 of Protocol Weekly was published by @8x_Protocol's @kadesda.

Click below for updates from some of the top L1 and #Ethereum L2 protocols out. We're talking @ParityTech, @DharmaProtocol, @LoopringOrg and more!…
19/ 🎙️ Loved the latest episode of the @PennBlockchain Podcast!

In it, @AndrewCiatto speaks with software engineer @Preston_VanLoon (Co-Founder, @PryLabs) about #blockchain scalability, particularly in the context of #Ethereum. Give it a listen!…
20/ 🎧 Another great listen came via @ClayCollins' (CEO, @NomicsFinance) 'Flippening' podcast.

The latest episode features Kevin Zhou (Head Trader, @Galois_Capital) who provides a behind-the-scenes look into how a high-volume #crypto #OTC desk operates.…
21/ ✍️ @CaitlinLong_ published the second of a two-part piece on @ForbesCrypto exploring how "crossing the streams" from legacy to #crypto will present some of the largest-ever operational challenges for the financial services sector.

So well written!…
22/ 👏 In closing, @NuggetsNewsAU's @AlexSaundersAU made missing his flight a *very* real possibility all just so he could address the #crypto bloodbath with his distressed followers.
