As we enter October, we have some exciting announcements to share with you all, including a new member of the Stratis Decentralized Accelerator (SDA) program and essential information regarding the STRAX token swap. The Stratis InterFlux Hub continues to grow, with more Masternodes signing up, more STRAX being burnt through the on-chain registration protocol, and more STRAX locked up for Masternode operation.
Each month, we witness continuous growth. Our partners highlighted a significant uptake in interest with over 145K unique views on our staking calculator page. We are genuinely excited about what is to come in the coming months.
Hash Battle passes SDA vote
The latest project from Deli-based Kingster636 Games — Hash Battle — will utilize the accelerator funding to develop blockchain capabilities ahead of the proposed January 2022 launch. Hash Battle sees players choose from thousands of games to compete against one another to win blockchain-based rewards, including Strax tokens and NFT avatars and trophies.
Azure Cloud Summit 2021 sessions are now available online
For those that missed last month’s Azure Cloud Summit, our sessions on smart contracts and the Stratis Unity SDK are now available online. Check out the links to see Rowan de Hass (Smart Contract Lead) discussing deploying Stratis Smart Contracts infrastructure to Azure Container Instances and Ivan Tarasov (Unity Lead) tips for leveraging NFTs with Stratis Unity SDK.
Token swap deadline approaching
Any STRAT token holders wishing to swap them for STRAX must do so before 5 PM on 15 October 2021. All un-swapped tokens after this date will be burned. This is a massive event for Stratis! As it stands, over 5% of the Token Swap Supply will be burned, equating to over $10M USD! Please reach out within our Discord support channels if you require any assistance.
SDA member update
Since announcing its addition to the accelerator program last month, London-based Red Ego Games has been making strides in the development of its latest title, Dawn of Ships. The game sees players captain a pirate ship, battle enemies and collect loot to progress and become more powerful. This play to earn title features ship and crew customization, the ability to buy and sell NFT ships with other players using the Stratis marketplace. Check out their latest awesome artwork here.
Stratis in the media
We have had some great coverage that we would love to share with you all following last month’s news that Statis joined the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Blockchain (APPG Blockchain). Highlights include CryptoSlate, DailyCoin and Chainbits.
Speaking with Entrepreneur back in September, Stratis founder Chris Trew discussed the formation of the business, enterprise blockchain and NFTs. Read the full interview here.
Stratis InterFlux Decentralized Governance Board Update
We have seen another month of growth in Masternode Operators! There have now been over $400,000 worth of CRS Tokens burned through the registration fee. The number of Masternodes now stands at 224, locking up over 22M STRAX, equivalent to over $50M in STRAX! The continued growth is a fantastic achievement for us, further decentralizing the network while also increasing security.
