Four more Episodes of Inside DFINITY were released on YouTube. Dominic Williams talks about end-to-end decentralization achieved by Internet Computer blockchain. He also talked about the subnet overload that happened with ICPunks NFT launch.

Dominic Williams further talks about the bottleneck present in the persistent memory system that enables Canister smart contracts to maintain data.

Beginning of the Metaverse boom

There are so many new NFT projects on Internet Computer and they have pushed me to the point where I have to create folders for NFT servers on Discord. Here are some of the major updates on the Internet Computer Metaverse.

  • Cronics Floor Price tripled from 5 ICP to more than 15 ICP and went as high as 20 ICP. This was predicted in the previous editions of ICP Squad. Thousands of ICP worth of Cronic were sold when a Whale swept the floor.
  • ICPunks is teasing their NFT Collection Infinity Frogs which costs 0.08 ETH to Mint. These frogs can be made to hop from Ethererum to Internet Computer to demonstrate the power of cross-chain NFT compatibility from ICPunks.

DeFi and Wallets

First of all the Plug wallet UI looks amazing. I use both Stoic wallet and Plug wallet. Stoic being a browser wallet from Toniq Labs enables Internet Identity support. Plug still doesn't have Internet Identity support.

Fleek is working on a mobile version of the Plug wallet. Speaking of mobile wallets - ICWallet.org surely makes it to the list.

Β Check out the website ICWallet.org to download and test the dapp.

  • Deland Labs announced that they received a second grant from DFINITY. Deland labs are developing OrderSwap - which will combine 0x and AMM to build a DEX on Dfinity.
  • iBridge - A DeFi protocol is developing on the Internet Computer
iBridge is a decentralized infrastructure which cross-chain interacts with different blockchains as well as an open-source non-custodial proposal
Snapshot from https://app.ibridge.pro

iBridge aims to be much more than just a bridge. Check out the details about the project on this medium post.
