Coinspeaker: Many companies and initiatives had spotted the potential for blockchain to solve real-world challenges. But like anything of value, it takes time to build, test, and iterate. Jelurida, the Swiss software firm behind the Ardor platform, has a team that’s been around in blockchain and systems development long enough to become very familiar with this cycle. Two of Jelurida’s co-founders were involved with the Nxt blockchain, which launched in 2013. Jelurida took over the operation of Nxt, which still runs today, in 2016. However, Ardor has been the firm’s flagship platform since its launch in January 2018. All tech innovations aside, what’s impressive about Ardor is the fact that over the three years since it launched, it’s become a go-to platform for projects looking to apply the features of blockchain to solve real-world problems.

Crypto News Flash: Development activity is the raisin d’etre for blockchain platforms. Those projects that manage to attract developers often find it a snowball effect, where a few successful launches serve as a showcase of the platform’s potential, which attracts more developers. One example of where this is visible is in the Ardor blockchain, which launched in early 2018. Over the last three years, Jelurida, the Swiss software development company that operates Ardor, has been working hard to attract developers. As Ardor now supports a multitude of real-world use cases, the work has paid off, with more activity on the way in 2021. Achieving a balance between ready-made features and near-limitless customization options has paid off for Ardor. The platform has become a hub of development activity, with numerous applications gaining traction

CoinGape: Treecoin is developed on the Ardor blockchain, which is operated by Jelurida, a Swiss-based software development firm. Ardor is becoming something of a focal point for sustainability initiatives, having been selected as the platform of choice by Hot City, a project funded by the Austrian government to reward citizens for contributing to an effort in recycling waste heat sources. It also hosts Cycle4Value, an application that incentivizes cyclists to get out on their bikes and reduce the environmental impact of traveling. Unlike many public blockchain platforms that require extensive programming knowledge to launch an application, Jelurida offers a suite of out-of-the-box tools that make it easy for non-blockchain professionals to get up and running. For this reason, it appears to be making a name for itself among projects that are focused on delivering outcomes based on specific proven use cases, such as gamification and crowdfunding. In the case of Treecoin, it’s easy to see how these concepts can be applied to sustainability initiatives. After all, people respond well to incentives. The idea of earning a profit from investing in a reforestation project will be attractive to many investors who want to put their money where it makes a difference.

Coincodex: Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are one of the most exciting crypto verticals, even if they have yet to take off in the way many commentators predicted. Back in 2017, the CryptoKitties craze caused gridlock on Ethereum, and one crazy cat wanted a digital kitty so bad, he blew $170k worth of ETH to obtain it (over $780k at today’s prices). Based on the performance of what was, at the time, an extremely young digital resource economy, we might reasonably have expected the NFT market to be further forward in 2021. Alas, progress has been slow. However, there is ample evidence to suggest that things are finally starting to change in the NFT ecosystem.
A new product called DeFiMAGIC represents a fresh use case for NFTs. Conceived by the team behind multi-chain platform Ardor, DeFiMAGIC is a Twitter bot that brings NFT capabilities to one of the world’s most popular social networking sites. While the exchange of ideas (and insults) is incredibly easy on a hectic platform like Twitter, what about the exchange of value? That’s a concept that struck Ardor’s developers as worth exploring.

ZyCrypto: 2020 saw a surge in defi and non-fungible token (NFT) activity happening on Ethereum as excitement grew around the prospect of yield farming and investing in the new world of digital collectibles. Inspired by this growing interest, members of the Ardor community set out to develop DeFiMAGIC, harnessing the features of the multi-chain platform including its Singleton Asset and Data Cloud. While there is still room for optimization and cost reduction, DeFiMAGIC is a great example of both the defi and NFT potential of the Ardor blockchain. Launched in 2018 by the same developers responsible for Nxt, Jelurida, Ardor is a multi-chain proof-of-stake blockchain platform with a unique parent-child chain architecture and powerful customization opportunities. In this system, the security of the entire network is provided by the parent Ardor chain that runs using the ARDR token. The interoperable child chains then operate with their own native tokens, delivering rich functionality with the flexibility necessary for a variety of use cases, including NFTs.
