On May 11th, at Trinity Western University in Vancouver, Canada, Rong gave a keynote speech at the Blockchain event set up by ecosystem partner Wefilmchain and the 9cat technical community. Rong spoken on Elastos, CR, and the evolution of blockchain in general. Wefilmchain head, Garnet Campbell, introduced the Wefilmchain project.

Vando Media conducted an exclusive interview and reported on the event as well.  After the event, Rong Chen attended a technical meetup organized by 9cat. This post-event had over 30 people in attendance. Garnet and Rong shared a conversation from the event that’s been posted on Youtube: https://youtu.be/0Mpp2WD5V7k. They discuss the future of Wefilmchain along with Elastos partnerships and the Smart Web.

Next, the UNESCO conference in Paris, France. From their website, “UNESCO is the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. It seeks to build peace through international cooperation in Education, the Sciences and Culture. UNESCO’s programmes contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals defined in Agenda 2030, adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015.” Rong Chen made a keynote speech at the event that was very well received, and a video is soon to come.

The Elastos community has been eagerly waiting for integration on the popular Ledger hardware wallet, as Coranos has already submitted his code to Ledger for full audit. Ledger’s team has released a full statement regarding future apps: “New applications are postponed until the Nano X hardware wallet is shipped. This has taken priority for Ledger until the new hardware is available and all current projects migrated.”  Elastos is currently on the Ledger internal and external developments Trello page. The Elastos team will continue to seek updates until ELA is supported. The good news is that the new Ledger Nano X hardware wallets have officially shipped and the delay should soon be over.

The Elephant Wallet has made a few updates:

  1.     Added tokens: USDT, FISH, FIlmC.
  2.     Added e-Signature interface.
  3.     Added DPoS supernode public key information.
  4.     Supported logins by DID on https://developer.elastos.org.
  5.     Fixed a crash issue when voting in some languages or regions.
