Playback of online live:

● After the online AMA activity for the 3rd-anniversary celebration, the team produced a series of videos on the technical progress of the core team. Tuum team is invited for the event being narrated by Donnie Bullers.

● As a partner, Elastos participated in The Road to Metamorphosis Hackathon.

● The Elastos Orchard team published “The Odyssey of Rong Chen”, reviewing the founder Chen Rong’s experience from 1977 to the present.


Chinese Community

On August 12, the new work “Blockchain Revolution: The Driving Force of Transformation for Modern Technology, Economy, Industry, and Society” co-authored by Han Feng, the co-founder of Elastos, was first published at the Shanghai Exhibition Center. Blockchain is a spirit and a way of thinking. Furthermore, it is a revolution, a technical revolution for mankind, and in a sense the fourth technical revolution in human history.

● On August 16, the administrator team of Elastos’ Chinese Community attended the Elastos Talk. Each of the Chinese Community administrators has different experiences and background, but they gathered together to participate in and promote the development of the Elastos Chinese Community, and form a group of firm supporters of Elastos. Rooting in the Elastos Chinese Community, they take the responsibilities to maintain the community’s basic construction, interactive communication and pay attention to the dynamics of the community. They act as a bridge in promoting communication between the community and CR.

The CR Council is composed of more than ten members from the Chinese community administrator team. The responsibilities of the CR Council is jointly undertaken by five working representatives. Regarding the team’s decision-making mechanism, it is to started with the independent voting of the five working representatives, and then to form the final team voice based on the principle of the minority obeying the majority. In the event, four representatives of the administrator team, Hu Ge, Shaonian, Wanwan, and Infi, were invited to share their experience since involving in the CR Council, as well as their anticipations for the development of the Elastos community.

● On August 15, Han Feng, the co-founder of Elastos, participated in the 2020 International Digital Economy Ecology Summit held in Ganzhou, and stated at the meeting that blockchain will bring wealth to the country and people of China, and the free market is a distributed computing system equivalent to a Turing machine, all the well-developed civilization carriers are constantly improving the transaction efficiency of the “system” to enrich the economy. Transactions require a credit medium, and the wealth consensus of the free market is also based on the credit medium.

In the future, national power will rely on data. The individual privatization of data will transform it into wealth, and the digital economy of China will bring new digital wealth.

● On August 17, the online forum of “DeFi Digital Finance Breakthrough”, co-organized by Block Finance and JRR Crypto and supported by HALO, was officially launched in the Block community. Han Feng, the co-founder of Elastos, was invited to attend the event.
Han Feng mentioned that the current popularity of DeFi is the inevitable development logic of the blockchain wealth consensus, which is beyond a simple understanding. DeFi will become the tipping point of this year’s market. Without liquidity, no financial market will be created. Only through reaching the financial consensus by all, it will be able to realize the essence of the digital economy.

● On August 22, the online celebration of the 3rd anniversary of the Elastos Chinese Community was successfully carried out, which specially invited heavyweight guests and community representatives, including 3 Elastos founding team members, 2 ecological partners, 3 community media, and several community activists. Participants gathered together and talked about Elastos’ technology development, ecological construction, and growth as a blockchain autonomous community. Chen Rong, the founder of Elastos, mentioned that Elastos is positioned as the Tier Two network, while Crypto projects such as ETH World Computer, Web3.0 (Polkadot), DeFi, and IPFS all belong to Tier One.

Just like hard disk storage cannot be accessed directly, CPU can only access to hard disk storage through memory acceleration, and all the Tier One cannot be directly used by consumers. It is not realistic for each project to develop Tier Two on their own. In that case, they will be isolated from each other and cannot realize interworking. Therefore, network OS coordination is required. The goal of Elastos is to build a P2P intelligent Internet platform for the public to achieve intercommunication; the PC2 that can be used by ordinary people to protect and trade their own data; the legal and compliant digital legal currency decentralized finance that can be popularized among the public.

Han Feng, the co-founder of Elastos, mentioned that there are signs indicating the forming of a bull market, and Elastos is well prepared for the coming bull market. There are strong signs that hotspots such as decentralized storage and DeFi will become the outlets of the next bull market, and the logic of these hotspots should also be on the track of “data capitalization”. Elastos plans to deploy in the real oracle model field to introduce a large amount of real traffic into DeFi and ensure that these real users and data can generate greater value in it.
