Hello everyone! Here’s the final part (VII of VII) of the catch up series - your week at Parachute + partners (14 Feb - 20 Feb'20):
For Parachute’s 2nd anniversary which happened last week, several Parachuters had gotten together a few months back to build an epic Monopoly-like board game based on the $PAR universe. Jason, Jose and Peace Love did most of the leg work while the rest of us cheered from the sidelines. The shipment reached NYC (to Cap and Ice) and Canada (to Shawn) this week. Click here for pics! Cap extended an open invitation for a round of Paropoly to anyone visiting NYC. Should be super fun! Bose hosted a Valentine Special trivia in tiproom this week for some cool $PAR prizes. Tavo hosted a CoD Battle Royale in the Parachute War Zone for $PAR prizes. Congrats to the winners! Afful held a trivia in TTR with a 10k $PAR prize pool. Doc Vic hosted a Champions League prediction round in TTR. For Two-for-Tuesday this week, Gian got Parachuters to post music videos featuring bands named after animals. Jenn had an idea of compiling the entries into a playlist and soon enough Sebastian set up a YouTube list with all the videos posted. What an amazing idea to catch up on 2FTs!
Epic beer can sleeve, JT!
Charlotte’s “Easy Trivia” in TTR for 1k $PAR per question was good fun as always. Victor hosted another trivia in TTR as well. The latest Parachute Digestive from Cap covers the updated numbers on ParJar (yup, almost a million tips). Plus, some sneak peeks into what’s coming up – on/off ramp with Transak, asset swap, no-whitelist ParJar. If you want to volunteer to test out the new features, don’t forget to apply (links in the article). A ton of $PAR will be given out! Parachuters would have received a digestive email from Cap as well. If you haven’t, don’t forget to sign up for newsletters from useparachute.com. For Jason’s #wholesomewed prompt, folks made created some awesome origami art. Donna won this week’s Parena to take home 25k $PAR. We also had a follow-up Parena to eliminate multis.
Cap and Ice’s visit to WeWork in Williamsburg (the Parachute Genesis Chamber) kicked off a flurry of edits. Haha!

To catch up with all the missed aXpire burns in the past few weeks, 500k $AXPR were sent to the genesis address this week in addition to the weekly 20k $AXPR burn.

The Fantom crew also hosted an AMA for the V-ID team. I guess an updated Blockfyre report on $FTM will be coming out soon now all thanks to the community. And in another piece of Fantom fam awesomeness, one of the validator teams built a tool to showcase how fast the consensus works. Pretty cool! Congratulations on reaching 21k followers. Fantom published a new technical paper on Probabilistic Byzantine Fault Tolerance. $FTM was listed on Delta Exchange for futures trading. Good thing ParJar is partnered with all three contenders – Fantom, Constellation, COTI. So we are not taking sides. Haha.
