Novaquark, the metaverse different

Novaquark, the Metaverse company, is dedicated to bringing people together from around the world to bring to life worlds of their own making. One voxel at a time. Their unique voxel expertise and technology is incredibly innovative, appeals to a wide audience and is suitable for a wide range of projects.

Their first game, Dual Universe, showcases the power of voxels. Dual Universe is an MMORPG set in a vast, untamed galaxy and focuses on new gameplay with player-driven economy, politics, trade, and in-game warfare. Players are empowered to unleash their wildest imaginations to create amazing buildings and equipment, fully functional vehicles of all shapes and sizes, and amazing works of art without having to be a professional designer. And we’re just getting started!

Novaquark has offices in Paris and Montreal.

Massa, a multi-threaded blockchain

Building a blockchain from scratch is an opportunity to incorporate lessons learned from experimenting with previous blockchains.

Massa is building a new cryptocurrency ecosystem designed for mass adoption. The platform uses Blockclique’s advanced architecture to support thousands of transactions per second while remaining secure and fully decentralized. To understand Massa you have to go back to Bitcoin, Current blockchains are limited, for example Bitcoin can only process 5 transactions per second. This is due to the sequential structure of the blockchain that requires nodes to receive the previous block before creating the next one, which in a decentralized p2p network takes time. Massa uses a multi-threaded block graph that allows nodes to create blocks in parallel and process 10,000 transactions per second on a fully decentralized multi-level network.

One of the most important things in a Proof-of-Stake system is coin distribution. At Massa, we ensure that our system is decentralized from the start by making a fair initial distribution. Massa aims for low hardware (standard desktop) and effort requirements to lower the barrier to entry. This is a necessary condition to ensure that users can run a node on their personal computer and have a healthy and robust network.


How to lose $21 million

It is Rekt who tells us that a vulnerability in Transit Swap allowed an unknown attacker to empty the wallets of users who had approved the protocol’s swap contracts. The team suspended the affected contracts before announcing the incident on Twitter. Although the vulnerability is in the project’s code, this attack directly targeted users via a vulnerability in the use of the transferFrom() function. All tokens approved for trading on Transit Swap could be transferred directly from users’ wallets to the address of the unknown exploiter.

The attack lasted about half an hour!

DAOs are not a means of escaping liability

DAOs are currently in a precarious position, as is anyone who has ever voted in a decentralized autonomous organization that provides any kind of financial service. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) federal civil lawsuit against the Ooki DAO in the US District Court for the Northern District of California is a significant statement by an agency that wants to show that DAOs are not a viable means of trading. This is not a done deal, the case has yet to go to court, but if the CFTC is successful, it could have major implications for the hundreds of thousands of people who voted in the DAOs and for the DAOs themselves.


Cosmos 2.0

Cosmos is not a blockchain network, but a network of blockchains.

Unlike Ethereum, where transactions are processed on rollups that eventually settle in its mainnet, or Polkadot, where parachains invest $DOT to outsource the security of their main “Relay Chain”, Cosmos’ design architecture is IBC (Inter- Blockchain Communication) more like many hubs that allow everyone to create their own applications in the independent blockchain (appchain) and thus create their own validator security.

The main feature of building in Cosmos is a level of flexible modularity not possible on other smart contract chains. It is also much easier to build a blockchain from scratch on Cosmos IBC thanks to its available SDK and Tendermint consensus engine.


Safe launches its DAO and its token

Safe is a protocol with infrastructure tools that secure around $40 billion worth of crypto. Its main product is a “multi-signature” wallet for businesses with practical DeFi integration. Formerly known as Gnosis Safe, its community voted to split from Gnosis DAO in April 2022. Safe has just taken a step towards decentralization with the launch of SafeDAO and a $SAFE token.
