The QualiSig project gets a mention on Big Think
The Ausrtian government funded and Ardor/Ignis powered QualiSig project, which was extensively covered last week by leading blockchain media, now got a mention in Big Think as well - this time as part of an article focused on the diminished citizens' trust in the governments around the world and their ability to handle data in a transparent way. Lior Yaffe and Alexander Pfeiffer were also quoted about the advantages of blockchain technology to help increase the trust in governments.

The new Ardor version covered in Chinese media

Ignis page featured on SimpleSwap
After publishing a page for Ardor, last week SimpleSwap dedicated a section for Ignis too. SimpleSwap's goal is to be an easy-to-use platform for cryptocurrency exchanges that works without registration and limits. The Ignis page explains what Ignis is, its advantages and how to buy it on SimpleSwap.
Ardor and Nxt node rewards program running 3 months with great success!
Three full months have passed since we started the Ardor and Nxt node running rewards program and so far it has been more than successful for both Ardor and Nxt platforms. The number of online nodes now is steady above 1000 for each of them, making our public blockchains even more resilient and allowing the users to benefit from better connectivity and improved overall experience. The program is distributing 10 000 IGNIS on a daily basis and if you wish to join, follow the instructions for setting up your own node.
