There is more to blockchain than just technology. It’s about community, collaboration and participating in the advancements of fellow projects. With this in mind, the Nebulas Foundation in participating with Nebulas Labs will be joining the OKExChain by deploying a node on their brand new platform. In addition, we are offering the Nebulas and blockchain community the opportunity to participate in this node and initially receive 100% of all incentives! Sounds good? Then keep reading!

The Nebulas Foundation has established a $2 million USD innovation and incubation fund, managed by Nebulas Labs and supported by the Blockchain Innovation Project.

For the past few months, the Nebulas team has been developing two new products to directly compete with existing DeFi projects and today we are happy to announce the launch of Link.nextDAO and Swap.nextDAO!

Cross-Chain assets via Link.nextDAO

For too long each blockchain has been limited to its own network resulting in high transaction fees, slow speeds and limiting growth of the global blockchain ecosystem. To combat this issue, Nebulas has developed link.nextDAO which will allow for Ethereum users to utilize Nebulas’ high performance, low latency and low fee blockchain network.

As a result, ETH and ERC20 holders can hold their assets on Nebulas and participate in DeFi with the above mentioned benefits. In addition, this will allow NAS holders to move their assets to Ethereum and participate in the wealth of existing DeFi tools such as Uniswap, balancer.exchange …

Nebulas’ Decentralized Ways — Part 2

Proof of Devotion (PoD) Community Governance Updates

Chinese version: https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/LVWUkWDZmxXBC4n9X8Z1yg

We have recently published a previous article on the status of Nebulas’ Decentralization Practices: Proof of Devotion (PoD) Community Governance Half-Year Practice Review. It presents the results and lessons learned from the six months of community governance.

In this part of the Decentralized Practice, we will discuss two topics:

  1. The Boundaries of Decentralized Governance.
  2. How to Achieve Long-Term Governance.

It also provides a new community governance solution that includes both proposal processing rule changes and product upgrades.

Section A:

Broad scope of proposals; difficult to implement on time.

In the 2019, the PoD Node Program launched with the original design to make a system where “All community members can make their own comments and suggestions on the future development of the Nebulas blockchain on Go.nebulas” …
