Team Expansion, Blockchain Gaming, CTSI Kraken Listing & More!
August 31, 2021 — A month of planning and strategic development for the Cartesi team!
August was a brilliant month of expansion for Cartesi, starting with welcoming nine new members to our team, a new listing on Kraken, and further expanding our relationship with the BGA through sponsorship. We’re not slowing down and have lots more in the pipeline — watch this space…
Following this, we gathered an amazing panel of speakers to unpack how blockchain is disrupting the gaming industry and what’s next in line for blockchain games. A range of perspectives (a gamer, a game developer, an investor, and two infrastructure providers), made for a really insightful conversation. If you missed our gaming panel, make sure to watch the replay.
We also saw a great number of updates for current projects, including releasing the final code for our Rollups series, Cartesi Node. For our poker showcase, we recorded a behind-the-scenes session with our tech team and also chatted with Polygon in an AMA on what our turn-based game smart contracts mean for the gaming industry. If you’re interested in staking, we also provided another option to set up and run your node via Linode. For those wanting to dive deep into our side-chain solution, we also released an article detailing Noether’s on-chain infrastructure.
Want to learn more about what happened in August? We’ve summarized each of them for you, have a read below.
