The Ticino Blockchain Technologies Association focuses on three crucial pillars:

  • Establishing a concentration of heterogeneous entities, including universities, students, enterprises, investment funds, etc.
  • Uniting partners through a joint industry approach and engaging them to produce economic value
  • Fostering better cooperation between partners, even when competing with one another.

These facets align with the long-term vision Jelurida has for the blockchain industry. Its core technologies and products – Nxt, Ardor, and IGNIS – are designed to fuel ongoing blockchain industry growth and help establish new use cases, cooperation, research, and brainstorming.

Tomislav Gountchev, Jelurida Lead Software Architect & Director:

The Ticino Blockchain Technologies Association organized the first face-to-face Think Tank event since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The event took place on April 1, 2022, at Hotel Dante and was attended by various blockchain and crypto firms, including Jelurida.

Lugano is quickly turning into a hub for blockchain and cryptocurrency. The city will introduce Bitcoin, Tether’s USDT, and the LVGA token as legal tender as part of the Lugano Plan B, following the example set by El Salvador several months ago. In addition, all businesses in Lugano will receive aid to use cryptocurrency for everyday transactions. Residents of Switzerland’s eighth-largest city will also be able to pay their taxes with these three currencies.

Tectona’s Bored.Ai Opens Text2Art Minting For The First Time



Tectona’s Bored.Ai Opens Text2Art Minting For The First Time

Tel Aviv, Israel, 20th May, 2022, Chainwire

Bored.AI, the generative art Ai by Tectona, has reached a milestone in its journey following the mint of its 10,000 MemberChip NFTs. During the month-long mint, thousands of text-to-image artworks were created by the community in the demo bot within Discord, with many individuals producing their own collections. The next phase of the project will reveal the exact MemberChip design and members will be able to use their MemberChips to mint authentic works of Text2Art based on their imagination and artistic style.

AI and NFTs are central to the convergence of reality and imagination in the Metaverse, and the next phase of the Bored.Ai journey opens up new possibilities of creation for all. Members of the Bored.Ai collective mint NFTs using their own words. Once a specific text description is used to mint a Text2Art, that description can no longer be used anymore, thus creating a race to mint the most exquisite phrases first. In addition to the community curators, many of whom have gone from novices to expert Ai artists throughout the Bored.Ai journey, the Bored.Ai is generating interest amongst artists and galleries who aren’t afraid to experiment with new mediums.

According to Tectona COO Beni Hakak, “for the first time ever we’re seeing a boom of user-generated artworks at scale. Community members are pushing the envelope of AI-enabled creation and making some amazing works of art. I’m proud of the fact that anyone can join the Bored.Ai collective and start generating art with no technical knowledge needed.”

Bored.Ai is the brainchild of Tectona, Israel’s leading public company specializing in blockchain technology and digital assets, It’s co-founders are Guy BenArtzi, co-founder of Bancor, and a veteran NFT collector, Yariv Gilat, algorithmic trading pioneer and co-founder of Final, as well as Beni Hakak and Tal Muskal, COO and CTO of Tectona respectively who have a wealth of entrepreneurial and technical expertise across blockchain, Ai and startups. Complementing the founders and team is a strong board consisting of industry stalwarts such as 0xb1, the CEO of DeFi protocol FODL, Lior.eth, founder of Eden Block VC, the founder of Ecko Unlimited and Complex Mark Ecko, and Bancor co-founder and serial entrepreneur Galia Ben Artzi.

The envisioned roadmap of Bored.Ai extends beyond text-to-image capabilities. Multidimensional images, videos, music, and other mediums of entertainment are just the tip of Bored.Ai’s creative potential. Together, the team, advisory board, and the community are shaping the vision of the Bored.Ai to bring artistic superpowers to the masses

Bullieverse Announces Chainlink VRF Integration To Boost Transparency And Fairness In Distributing its Bear NFTs



Bullieverse Announces Chainlink VRF Integration To Boost Transparency And Fairness In Distributing its Bear NFTs

Decentralized gaming platform, Bullieverse is set to launch the integration of Chainlink’s VRF, the Verifiable Random Function, on Polygon and Ethereum to help fairly distribute the Bear NFTs, the latest addition to the Citizens of Bulliever Island (COBI) collection. Set to launch later in the week, the integration of Chainlink’s VRF will help in the distribution of Bear NFTs in a fair and completely transparent manner.

Bullieverse is a metaverse offering an immersive, captivating and rewarding gaming experience using tokens and NFT pieces. The Bear NFTs were recently launched as rare assets with traits that grant holders more utility in the metaverse. As such, having a tamper-proof, auditable and random distribution process to help ensure that they’re distributed in a provably random manner. This is the key to making sure every gamer and NFT collector has a fair chance of winning. Additionally, integrating Chainlink’s VRF will allow users to verify that everyone has equal access to the most valuable Bear NFTs. 

“Providing our community with complete transparency is essential to the Bullieverse, which is why it was imperative that we integrated Chainlink VRF. We’re not only focused on creating a highly immersive gaming experience, we want it to be fair for our users as well,” said Srini Anala, Co-Founder & CEO of Bullieverse”.

The Bear NFTs are the latest line of NFT collection, adding to the Bull NFTs, which allows players to join and play in the first location of the Bulliever Island. The NFT also gives them a unique bull avatar they can use to explore the island and play games with. In time, the island will be filled with an ever-expanding collection of games. With the launch of the Quest: Bear Hunt, bulls will be able to hunt bears on Bulliever Island and win Bear NFTs in the process. 

Given the Bear NFTs are a rare item in the game, offering unique traits, distributing them in a provably fair way is key to supporting the integrity and trust of the Quest; Bear Hunt game. By integrating Chainlink’s VRF, the game offers the community a transparent platform, which sets the standard for the future of the metaverse.  

“This transparency is especially critical as we plan to evolve into a community-owned DAO in the future,’ a statement from the Bullieverse team reads”. 

According to the statement, Bullieverse selected the Chainlink VRF due to its cutting edge technology, academic research behind it, and its longevity in providing randomness. Bullieverse needed a secure random number generator (RNG) that any user could independently audit. Chainlink’s VRF is secured by generation and on-chain verification of cryptographic proofs that prove the integrity of each random number supplied to smart contracts, ensuring the randomness remains provably fair. 

To ensure total randomness and fairness, Chainlink’s VRF combines block data that is still unknown when the request is made with the oracle node’s pre-committed private key to generate both a random number and a cryptographic proof. Once generated, the VRF sends the random number to the Bullieverse smart contract, which only accepts the number if it has a valid cryptographic proof, and the cryptographic proof can only be generated if the VRF process is tamper-proof. 

In the near future, Bullieverse plans to expand its collection of NFTs and allow users to purchase land on the Island. The Chainlink VRF integration is expected to play a big role in ensuring these assets are fairly distributed across players and the wider community.
