By Abhijoy Sarkar | Parachute-Fans | 2 Feb 2020

Sup folks! Here’s your week at Parachute + partners (27 Dec’19 - 2 Jan'20):


Firstly, Happy New Year from all of us here at Parachute. We started off the week with a new entrant to ParJar - $COTI. Welcome to the fam! This week’s movie trivia in TTR saw 25k $PAR in prizes given out. Woot! Congratulations to Donna for winning this week’s Parena. Belated birthday wishes to Tony. Doc Vic (from Cuba) launched the craziest guerrilla marketing campaign yet to get the word on $PAR out to all corners of the world: #PARaroundworld. If you want to print it as stickers, click here. The first posters are starting to show up around the globe. Freaking hilarious stuff Sebastian! Guerrilla marketing at its best. Carlos joined in the fun too. The winners of #PFFL were announced. Congratulations to Clinton, Hang and Andy for winning the thing and for bagging a boatload of $PAR. As always, Charlotte’s trivia in TTR this week was a ton of fun! LordHades, NovelCloud and Alexis are still ruling the #FPL charts. But the others are starting to close in with all top 10 participants hacing 1000+ points now. For this week's #wholesomewed, Jason wants "you to pick a random person and pair off. Ask each other questions and such. Then I want you to present the other person. Like a sales pitch about why they are a good person." Also, check out this cool ENJ collectible that was auctioned off to Richi for 106k $PAR in TTR:

Amazing stuff as always Jose!


In aXpire news, the weekly 20k $AXPR burn went ahead as per schedule. In this week’s #XIOSocial discussions, Citizens talked about success metrics and reward schedules. Nearly 1M $XIO tokens are now locked up in the XLP on Uniswap. The crew shared a sneak peek of an XIO pitch deck (which may or may not be under development. Haha). And as a New Year surprise, XIO hosted a snapshot bonus for Citizens. ETHOS’ Voyager token ($VGX) is planned for even more use-cases than it has currently. Click here to learn more. Fantom’s Opera Mainnet was released this week. Like XAR Network, it uses Lachesis consensus. A guide for staking and delegating $FTM on Opera was published as well. A simpler way to stake on the Opera mainnet is through MyEtherWallet. Check out the guide here. CMO Michael Chen’s video walkthrough breaks it down into easier steps. Almost 18% of all $FTM is now staked to secure the network as per Staking Rewards where $FTM was recently added. Fantom announced a partnership with blockchain-based verification company V-ID to work on several government projects in 2020. If you’ve missed out on $FTM news from the last 2 weeks, the community mailer should be helpful. For folks trying to make sense of the Lachesis code, here’s a detailed rundown. Uptrennd’s latest feature is an activity slider that encourages engagement. The more time you spend on the platform, the more daily activity bonus points. To mark the occasion, the crew did a 10k $1UP giveaway. Luke hosted another 20k $1UP giveaway as well. Sweet! Uptrennd reviews are back! The team did a community survey to select the next project for a free detailed review by Altcoin Buzz. Click here for pics from their Nigeria meetup. So cool! District0x’s weekly recap can be seen here. Plus, as the year came to a close, a detailed quarterly performance report was published too. Hydrogen’s year-in-review reports for the companyAtom and Molecule are extensive and perfect ways to catch up for anyone who hasn’t been keeping track. Also, the recap video by Mike and Mark does a nice summary of the year that was at Hydro. The first $DYT raffle happened this week.
