Parachute Weekly Update: ParJar Starter Class, SelfKey on ParJar, Hydro Telegram Contest, Mycro Hunter App... – 9 Aug - 15 Aug'19

By Abhijoy Sarkar | Parachute-Fans | 5 Sep 2019


Sup Guys! This will be a quick recap. Here’s your week at Parachute (9 Aug – 15 Aug’19):

 

Cap announced a new pilot program for a specific set of projects who would like to partner with Parachute/ParJar – The ParJar Starter Class. It will be about finding awesome new projects who believe in the Parachute vision as much as Parachute believes in them. Synergy FTW! SelfKey’s KEY token was added to ParJar this week. Another cool community joins the Happy Tipping Club. Woot! The Parachute Fantasy Football (NFL) contest is open for entries. 10k PAR entry fee. Chris says: “The game will be played through Yahoo! Fantasy Sports so you will be required to make an account if you don't have one”. Make sure to fill the form and let Chris know that you are in. After Week 1 of the Premier League, we had Sebastian with the lowest score (and winning 500 PAR), Bawheid bang in the middle of the table (1000 PAR) and Novel Cloud topping the charts (2500 PAR). And here’s a blast from the past. BlackBullShark stuck a “Skip Work and Parachute” sticker on a signboard 1.5 years back. And this is how it looks now:

We used to have a blast with these stickers. Cap shipped them far and wide to Parachuters to see them pop up at random locations. Gian put up a few at his local Wegmans in July last year:

Ethereum dApp developers, make sure to check dev.ost.com for a simple solution to create your own tokens and process microtransactions on your dApp. Like OST, MetaMorphPro too has a token creation solution. However, while OST provides a more end-to-end solution for dApps, MetaMorphPro’s token creation platform is meant purely for minting and managing tokens.

 

And so we come to a close for another week at Parachute + partners. See you soon with another exciting update. Cheers!
