Message from Sean Noga, CEO Unizen
We’d like to welcome our community to the second edition of the Unizen Weekly Pulse, where we provide a round up of all the latest news and developments from across the Unizen ecosystem.
This week our Unizen Tournament of the ALTS 2.0 is in full flight and we are pleased to share the results from the first stages of community voting.
We also share further updates from Martin Granstrom, our CTO, including a sneak peak of the innovative new BSC bridge design that our development team has been busy stress testing.
We are proud to share further updates from a handful of our carefully curated ZenX partner projects; with a particular focus this week on the updated Geeq Roadmap (https://geeq.io)
Round Up: Tournament of the ALTS 2.0
The Unizen Tournament of the ALTS 2.0 features 16 participating Layer-1 protocols competing for listings on the Unizen CEX Module together with full-scale support from ZenX Labs.
Kicking off the competition in the first Pre-Quarter Final 1 we saw Near Protocol ($NEAR) and Hedera Hashgraph ($HBAR) go head-to-head. A closely fought community vote saw 1,275 votes cast, with Hedera Hashgraph moving to the next round with 52% of the community vote.
Up next, we saw Avalanche ($AVAX) and Algorand ($ALGO) compete with 809 votes cast and a decisive victory for $AVAX winning 74% of the community vote to advance to the next stage of the competition.
Pre-Quarter Final 3 saw Ethereum ($ETH) and Zenon Network ($ZNN) competing, however following voting irregularities our team disqualified Ethereum, and Zenon Network advances to the next round of the competition.
Our fourth round of the tournament sees Polkadot ($DOT) and Cronos ($CRO) compete, with the Polkadot Community winning the stage with a decisive 70% of the community vote.
Pre-Quater Final 5 was between Cosmos ($ATOM) and Solana ($SOL), and wrapped up with the win of Cosmos with 69% community votes.
The Pre-Quarter Final 6 was the face-off between Terra ($LUNA) and Kadena ($KDA) was concluded with the 60% win of Terra.
The Pre-Quarter Final 7 was the Mystery Competition — one competitor was to be announced only before the very beginning of the poll. The secret project, chosen to face the Binance Secret Chain ($BNB), was Aleph Zero ($AZERO). Aleph Zero dominated the round and passed to the next round with an overwhelming 82% of votes.
The final round, Pre-Quarter Final 8 was the match between Geeq ($GEEQ) and TEZOS ($XTZ). The community awarded 62% of the total votes to Geeq, which propelled the project to the next stage of the tournament.
The next round of Tournament of Alts 2.0 has already started with the match between Hedera and Avalanche. This week, the winners of previous rounds will compete with each other, bringing us one step closer to the reveal of the community-favorite Layer 1 project.
$1,000,000 $XI Hyper Pool live on DMAS
In partnership with Geometric Energy Corporation (GEC) we are proud to announce the launch of the $1,000,000 $XI Hyper Pool being added to #DMAS on the 30th of November 2021.
GEC is a leading tech and research pioneer, focused on energy, engineering, space, development, and decentralization. Currently GEC is working on building and launching DOGE-1, the first crypto-founded space mission to the moon. Incubation at ZenX labs will help the team to scale their innovation, establish strong DeFi infrastructure, and ensure full compliance.
A 30-day pool worth $1,000,000 at the time of deployment will be shared with $ZCX stakers ensuring that our community share in the mutual success and development of GEC, $XI and the Unizen Ecosystem together.
BSC Bridge Update: User Interface Preview
With our development team swiftly progressing on our Innovative BSC Bridging solution, Martin Granstrom provided the community with a sneak preview on twitter of the bridge currently being stress tested by our developers.
Our main priority is ensuring that the new bridge provides a secure, efficient, and cutting-edge addition to the Unizen Ecosystem.
The team are putting the BSC bridge through its paces, including rigorous testing and looking to deploy into a live environment as soon as our internal audits and stress testing are concluded, and full security vetting is complete.
Strategic Partner Update: GEEQ
Geeq is a multi-Blockchain platform secured by a unique Proof of Honesty protocol (PoH) radically reducing the cost of securely transacting value at scale.
This enables Geeq chains to scale while keeping costs low and allows honest users to protect their tokens and validated information in a reliable and time-consistent way. It produces ledgers that are provably and dependably honest.
This gives Geeq a compelling advantage: the ability to provide neutral validation and a consistent reference data set over time – a source of data consistency that enterprises and individual users can rely on.
In their latest roadmap update Geeq announces a strategic refocus on private blockchain reflecting increased interest from enterprise customers who have identified a wide array of real-life applications for the protocol including data visibility, microdonations, gaming and fintech.
Additionally, the team are working with a number of enterprise customers planning to roll out functional Geeq products for the businesses in 2022.
