Send In the Clowns! The CIRCUS Token Comes to Proton

Pardon me, did I say “Proton?” I’m sorry, it’s actually called XPR Network now. One of the strengths of the XPR Network community has always been its chaotic cast of entertaining characters and zany personalities. Many have come and many have gone, and most have been banned from official XPR channels, while some remain to …

Brother, Can You Spare a Meme Token? There’s Always a Market for BEGGARS

Wherever you find communities of crypto traders, you’re bound to encounter beggars: those annoying, panhandling mfs that consistently flood the chat with off topic pleas like “can you help me out, bro?”, “please send me some tokens?” and “will someone buy my NFTs?” In every Discord or Telegram channel, there’s always at least one of …

Fantom has SpookySwap. Cardano has SundaeSwap. Avalanche has Trader Joe. Algorand has Tinyman. Heck, even Oasis has YuzuSwap. It looks like Metal blockchain will soon have MetSwap. …

New Sqwid on the Block – A Brief Look at Reef’s First NFT Marketplace

I’ve been on the lookout for another place to mint a collection of NFTs. I generally prefer non-ETH chains, not just to avoid gas fees but because most of the marketplaces on ETH are already piled sky high with NFTs that it’s almost impossible to stand out. Reef Chain has been on my radar for …

Trace That Tokenized Collectible’s Ancestry With Ankr’s NFT API

So, you maxed out your girlfriend’s credit card to buy that pixelated brick NFT that you just knew would 100x in value, only to later wonder if that NFT was stolen, or whether the entire collection was a copy and paste job. Uh-oh spaghettio! Yeah, we’ve all been there, and unfortunately, you can’t just take …

The Buck Starts Here – WebAuth Wallet Holds the Key to Proton’s Ecosystem Growth

In terms of user-experience, Proton’s WebAuth wallet is bar none the best wallet I’ve ever used in crypto. It’s lightning fast, efficient and almost totally bug free. The only other wallet (out of the many I experimented with) that’s comparably impressive is Algorand’s Pera Wallet. These days, I find myself using old standbys like MetaMask, …

Cheap Thrills With ProtonSpin, the Nifty New Prize Wheel From ProtonIND

If you’re like me, whenever you’re presented with a list of Proton block producers to choose from in WebAuth, you typically just pick the ones with cool or legit sounding names. It doesn’t seem to really make a difference whom you select, after all, since your choice doesn’t impact your staking rewards one way or …
