Beam News

A smashing week behind us, with the BeamX launch, and ensuing party, being the highlight of the week. It was great to see on display what’s been happening behind the scenes on the dev front, and get up close and personal with Confidential DeFi, and the very first Shaders running on BeamX.

BeamX Launch Party

BeamX kicked off with a bang, and a great turnout to the launch party. The team and community jumped on Zoom, leaving the recording off, so we could let down our hair, get our BeamX wallets fired up, and start interacting with the Beam confidential DeFi experimental network.

For those that missed the party, Alex will be bringing us a Beam Pulse this week to go over what was missed. For now you can check out last weeks episode of Beam Pulse, that gave us a run-up to the BeamX launch.

During the party, we had a look at the first Shaders deployed to the network, along with the in wallet App interface.

Exciting times ahead as we bring privacy to DeFi. Expect a lot more on this front in the near future!

Beam Accepted Here

This week in Beam Accepted Here, we bring to you: Lynx Art Collection

Lynx Art started as a vision for conversation pieces, engineered to generate emotion.  They choose to use art ideas as a means to transcend a message- messages of humanity and those philosophies are depicted to captivate a deeper and a more critical thinking from within. They have accepted Beam as a means of payment since the early days, and have some great art on their platform. Be sure to check it out and show your support!

Research and Development

As mentioned last week, Beam is participating in the Hackathon with Encode Club, and a number of other leading crypto projects. Last week saw Alex present Beam, and more specifically BeamX, and the DeFi functionality that will come with it. You can check out the recorded event below, where Alex explains a little about the background of Beam, and takes us through the architecture of the Confidential DeFi platform that is BeamX.


Sign up, stay tuned, and see you all next week!
