By Abhijoy Sarkar | Parachute-Fans | 20 Nov 2019


Sup everyone! Continuing with our catch up series, here’s your week at Parachute + partners (25 Oct - 31 Oct'19):

 

Parachute OGs would remember how awesome Super Trooper experiences were – getting involved, learning, using your skills, exploring new ideas and getting a ton of crypto in the process. This week, you’re in for a treat since Super Troopers are returning to the Parachute-fold with the introduction of a brand new partner project – DENG (Decentralised ENGineering). DEng Design is starting up and building a community around its ethos of decentralised innovation in Engineering and IP. There are several early stage beta projects where anybody can join in as a collaborator. Jason hosted a short story writing contest this week with the theme scary/horror. Mandatory elements to be included: Parachute/ParJar/TTR. The contest was a hit with some serious entries and lots of $PAR given out. CyberFM’s $CYFM token was also listed on ParJar this week. Welcome to the club! To mark the occasion, Sebastian hosted a game in TTR called “Catch that tune” for some cool $CYFM and $PAR prizes. Plus, there was a physics-based trivia in Tiproom with a 25k $PAR pot. Sweet! And don’t forget to say Hi to Cap who joined Twitter this week.

This week’s #WholesomeWed was about the favourite activities of Parachuters and we found out how well-rounded the Parachuterverse really was. Let’s see if I can recap all of it. From hunting (Andy) to reading coming comics (Borna), we have everything covered. Rene is a Wing Tsun Kung Fu master, Richi dabbles in CrossFit, Brian is a karateka, Legacy and @dontouchscreen like to swim, Anthony enjoys going to the beach, Charlotte writes, Carlos is a musician, Marcos climbs mountains (literally), @Trojak likes music and video games, Yoleidis plays the saxophone, Santhi, Jeff and Robertlot read a lot, Martha loves watching TV, Dinero, Gugger and Abdulbasid play soccer, Tavo raps, Alejandro is a curio collector and philatelist, Fadlan likes to draw, Hanabi collects antiques, Rin is a fashion designer, Shucy takes photos, Can spends time with cats, Arthus is a geologist, Andrea collects coffee mugs, Shirin plays the piano and Peace Love draws and is mighty good at it. Whew! The Halloween photo contest in TTR saw some spooky entries and had a 30k $PAR prize pool. Boo! PAR4PAR lottery is now in stage 6. 300k $PAR in prizes. Say what! Benjamin’s BOMB Report trivia in Tiproom was based on his latest 4% burn report. The theme for this week’s Two-for-Tuesday was the songs need to have a female name in the titles. Cool! And wicked sticker pack and gif Johnny (@Joliwa)! Couldn’t help but make all of those into a cover pic at the top. These are too good.

In this week’s ZachTalks we had discussions on Total Addressable Marketpre-mined tokensXIO Syndicate and Marketing (based on BJ Fogg's Behavior Model). Switch burned over 1% of the supply of $ESH tokens since many holders of the old token never swapped to the new one. Consequently, they will also be missing out on $ETH and $ESH drops. Winner of last week’s DappRadar contest was announced. John McAfee sat down for interviews with My Crypto Spirit and Shahan Khoshafian to talk about McAfeeDex. He also travelled to the Barcelona Blockchain Week to speak on why crypto is the future. Click here to watch his speech. Binance USD ($BUSD) is now available as a base pair on the Dex. The McAfeeDex Onion portal is live as well. The Dex can also be used through the IPFS protocol for pure P2P operations. The $ESH trading competition for a chance to spend a day with John McAfee came to a close this week. Winners to be announced next week. Callisto's security audit of the McAfeeDex (and consequently, SwitchDex) contracts was finished. You can read the report here. Plus, a few updates were made to the Switch platform for faster transactions.
