A busy week for Beam, with us pushing into the next with a bang! The Beam community call was hosted earlier this evening, with many joining to discuss the latest advancements and what is on the horizon for Beam.
Let us dive in!
It was all go from the get go, with a great turn out from the community, and Romanov turning up the heat with some banging insights on where we are at!
A big shout out to ⟁Beamster⟁ for the live thread on the happenings during the community call, keeping those that couldn’t make it in the loop. Let’s take a look at what was covered!
HFT - High Frequency Transactions
Hard Fork - ETA April 2022
The InterPlanetary File System started in 2014, with the Alpha launching in 2015. It is a means for distributed file storage, and as such, is a great solution for the like of NFTs. IPFS will be integrated into the Beam Desktop wallet,
with other integrations possible in the future.
The D²App store is already on Beam testnet, allowing anyone to become a Dapp publisher, whilst keeping their privacy and remaining anonymous. This will also utilise IPFS to avoid spamming of the Beam chain.
Algorithmic Stable Coin
This will allow users to interact with Beam and Beam Dapps from the Metamask wallet
This will increase awareness and user onboarding to the Beam ecosystem
In addition to the Metamask integration, Beam is working on a sidechain for EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) compatibility
Allow for easy onboarding of Ethereum developers
Utilise the EVM and EVM tooling in the Beam ecosystem
Onchain Git repositories utilising both Beam and IPFS
Web3 native development platform to allow for contribution, collaboration, governance, and funding
Provide developers with the privacy they need to make contributions while reducing risk and factors associated with open source contributions
A lot to unpack during the call, but fear not, the community call recording will be uploaded in the coming days for those that couldn’t make it! Huge progress already this year, and much more on the cards.
A great guide from the BeamBots crew on keeping your Beam safe. The guide walks users through how to secure their precious Beams safely!
Beam Africa Space!
This week Beam Africa lead the charge with the first Beam Space on Twitter dot com. It was a huge success and we are looking forward to making this a regular for the Beam community!
That is all for this week, but be sure to sign up, and stay tuned for all things Beam.
