Dear Tezos community,

The Tezos ecosystem has made strides towards wider adoption of Tezos over the past few weeks, with projects announced by both the French and Singaporean governments. First, Nomadic Labs and the French National Gendarmerie’s cybercrime division (C3N) announced that C3N has been recording expenses on the Tezos blockchain over the past few months- the first time that a government entity has developed an operational smart contract and deployed it on a blockchain.

Tezos Southeast Asia also announced its partnership with Tribe, a Singaporean government-backed blockchain platform, to launch a training program for Tezos developers. The partnership is designed to attract more developers to create Tezos-based solutions for real-world applications. I am delighted to see Tezos emerge as the go-to blockchain for government use cases and partnerships.

FAQs

What should I do if I am having trouble moving Tezos tokens (tez) from a KT1 address to a tz1 address?
After Babylon was activated, some users may have had issues moving tez from KT1 addresses to tz1 addresses if the tz1 address contained insufficient funds, leaving them unable to pay transaction fees. Members of the Tezos community like Cryptium Labs and Everstake took initiative to fund all impacted accounts with enough tez to cover transaction fees and resolve the issue. Should one have any issue with a Tezos wallet, make sure that the latest version is installed (as many were updated to be compatible with Babylon), that your tz1 address contains sufficient funds to pay transaction fees, and reach out to the developers of the wallet for further support.
