Simplex Ardor Addition Can Spur More Effective Blockchain Handling

IHold: Today, tech media outlets are talking about the addition of tools by fiat/crypto exchange Simplex related to the Ardor blockchain and attached Ignis and Nxt child chain protocols. What's so great about this winning combination? Essentially, Ardor's structure and child/parent setups drive more types of modern digital asset processes. Through that model, users will be able to benefit from the key functionality that the Ignis and Nxt chains provide, in an ecosystem that shows off the power of open source systems to innovate in DeFi. All of that rests on the previous work of the Jelurida company that began in 2016 in the Netherlands, and now operates in various countries around the world. Jelurida maintains both Ardor and Nxt and helps to provide stability for this sector of the fintech marketplace.

Tarasca DAO - Could This Be the First DAO with Mass Appeal?

U.Today: Tarasca DAO has chosen to set up on the Ardor blockchain for several reasons. Ardor is a parent-and-child chain structure, with Ardor operating as the parent chain, securing multiple child chains. One of the child chains is Ignis, Ardor’s main child chain. Between Ardor and Ignis, Tarasca has access to several out-of-the-box features that support setting up a DAO. These include a voting system, a messaging system, and a means for dividend distribution, among others. Furthermore, Ardor offers a more secure DAO environment than Ethereum, as these features are already in place and tested by Jelurida, the company that operates Ardor. On Ethereum, developers are required to program all the features of their DAO from scratch. Doing so creates an opportunity for bugs and vulnerabilities to creep into the code.

Nigeria – The people fight back against central bank cryptocurrency limitations

Bitcoinist.com: Around the African continent, the use of new digital currencies and fintech solutions is expanding, as a common interest in decentralized finance grows. One example is at Jelurida Africa, where a recent Africa Blockchain Developer Call Series program promoted more entrepreneurs and engineers getting involved in the cryptocurrency world. Jelurida Africa is an offshoot of a Swiss firm of the same name, which was incorporated in the Netherlands in 2016 and moved to Switzerland in 2017. Now, Jelurida Africa is engaged in prelaunch project testing and other goals ahead of additional expansion to a greater number of African nations. At the same time, Jelurida Africa  Managing Director Adedayo Adebajo is addressing the Nigerian bank’s notice by noting the conflict between fiat and crypto systems. “My question is, will the CBN reinstate the cryptocurrency support if the fundraising is carried out in support of the sitting government?” Adebajo said, according to reporting at Bitcoin.com. “Situations like this provide more reasons why decentralization, as offered by the blockchain technology, is highly required in Africa.”
