Hi everyone! Here’s all that happened at Parachute and ParJar from 30-Oct-20 to 3-Dec-20 –
30 Oct – 5 Nov'20:
Naj hosted a super fun Sunday Trivia in the Tiproom. Manual whitelisting of new groups for ParJar addition will be on a slight pause to make way for the user validation (and subsequently, no-whitelist version of ParJar) to go live.
Happy Halloween to everyone from Cap. Yup, that’s him as Michael Myers
6 Nov – 12 Nov'20:
13 Nov – 19 Nov'20:
Ice shared some updates on expected timelines for Social Liquidity Pools. Cap added some pointers too. OG Parachuter Mathew was quoted in a recent Decrypt article this week. Saweet! Clinton introduced the first ever Parachute Shop merch with customisable text. The site also underwent an upgrade this week. As you already know, all proceeds go to the For Living Independence Charity run by Clinton. The charity is also on Amazon Smile. Jason hosted an impromptu giveaway in the ParJar channel for pumpkin pics from Parachuters who celebrated Halloween across the world. For an update on the SLP developments, click here.

20 Nov – 26 Nov'20:
Ice opened up the floor this week for discussions on ParJar user validation to brainstorm with the community on the best step forward and crowdsource ideas for quick KYC. One of the big points was to get on Discord to have more organised discussions. Another idea that came forward was that, instead of ParJar taking on the user validation on itself, we could take the help of one of our fiat on-ramp partners since they do validation anyways. Ice laid out some initial takeaways here. There will also be referral earnings. How will that work? Cap answered here. In the Parachute #FPL standings shared by LordHades Shreyas is leading with 499 points and Carl close on his heels at 496 points. Zarko did a $PAR giveaway on this Twitter.
Early takeaways from the community brainstorm
27 Nov – 3 Dec'20:
Cap pushed out some mega updates this week starting with a what-next article that laid out the immediate roadmap starting December 15th or more particularly the release of ParJar 2.0. This will mark its open access across Telegram which means all groups will have the ability to add ParJar and start tipping/sending immediately. No need to apply for manual whitelisting anymore. In line with the insights from last week’s community discussion, ParJar user validation will be done through MoonPay. More fiat on-ramp partnerships will be explored so as to cover any country that aren’t serviced by MoonPay already. The crew has also set its sights on Discord as the next platform for releasing ParJar on. A referral program is also in the plans. Check out this super fun ParJar 2.0 promo video for a sneak peek into what’s it going to be like. So epic!!! Shreyas continues to lead the Parachute Fantasy Premier League table with Carl in second position. Thanks for the update, LordHades!
Cap and Chris shared some pics from their Thanksgiving feasts. *Drools
