This marks a historic first time that a government entity has developed an operational smart contract and deployed it on a blockchain. We are thrilled to witness Tezos continue to establish its reputation as the first choice for high-value, real-world applications. Special congratulations to the Nomadic Labs team, which worked closely with C3N to build the program, allowing C3N to acquire cryptocurrency from Europol allocated funds in order to cover operational costs.
I would also like to note that the Cryptium Labs and Nomadic Labs teams have combined forces to introduce the latest Tezos protocol proposal, Carthage. Community members who want to learn more about the proposed amendment can read the introductory blog posts from both Cryptium and Nomadic which go through the proposed changes. All members of the ecosystem are encouraged to also join the discussion surrounding the proposal on Tezos Agora!
Cryptonomicreleased Nautilus Cloud, a new self-service site to get access to the integrated development infrastructure of Tezos and Conseil nodes, which is intended to reduce friction for Tezos developers and clients running nodes or indexers.
Cryptonomicupdated its Galleon wallet with Babylon-related features, private key export, and improved smart contract functionality.
The Foundation is in the middle of significant grantmaking activities, as we are in the process of reviewing over 90 proposals from our most recent ecosystem grants RFP. We will complete reviews for grant proposals and update all applicants on their status by mid-December. If you have questions about the status of your grant proposal, feel free to email [email protected] at any point.
We are also thrilled to be creating the Foundation’s second biannual update (you can view our first biannual update here) to be released in early 2020. It has been a groundbreaking year for the Tezos ecosystem, and we can’t wait to share updates on what the whole community has achieved!
FAQs: I contributed to the Tezos Foundation’s fundraiser but I cannot figure out how to activate my recommended allocation – what do I do?
Happy New Year once again to the entire Tezos ecosystem! We are excited to move into 2020 with momentum to create another incredible year of growth for the Tezos community and progress for the Tezos protocol.
