February 2024 update

From forging strategic partnerships at ETHDenver to launching our highly anticipated 25 million $MPC AirDrop program, the shortest month of the year has been a whirlwind of excitement and growth for Partisia Blockchain. We solidified ties with Georgia’s Innovation and Technology Agency, ventured into new realms with TeraBlock and Verida through engaging AMAs, celebrated the ingenuity of our hackathon winners, and embarked on a mission to empower Rust developers with TinTinLand. With fast track grants, educational initiatives, and a thriving community, we are ready for even greater success ahead. Thanks to our incredible community for your unwavering support – let’s make Q1 unforgettable!

Partnering with Georgia’s GITA to advance innovation

In early February 2024, Partisia Blockchain achieved a significant milestone in advancing innovation by solidifying ties with Georgia’s Innovation and Technology Agency (GITA) under the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development. Partisia Blockchain will play a key role in shaping the minds of participants in GITA’s educational programs, contributing insights on MPC, homomorphic encryption and their integration with blockchain technology. This commitment to education reflects the shared vision of advancing technology while ensuring knowledge and understanding pave the way for a sustainable future.

Expanding reach through strategic partnerships at ETHDenver

ETHDenver was a platform for new partnerships, expanding our horizons and widening the reach of our unique technology. Trustswap, a provider of decentralized finance tools for token holders and Web3 businesses, is integrating Partisia Blockchain into their Crypto App, expanding MPC accessibility to 5 million users. Partisia Blockchain also partnered with Sierra Block Games, Web3 development, consulting and educational services organization, for validator services and adoption support. We will also collaborate with IoTex to realize the Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Network (DePIN), safeguarding users’ IoT data ownership and monetization while rewarding data use without exposing confidential details. Together, they aim to protect users’ private IoT data and enable its secure utilization.

Partisia Blockchain’s highly anticipated 25 million MPC AirDrop program

We were thrilled to launch our first official AirDrop on 1 February, marking a significant milestone for ecosystem adoption. With the governance vote for MPC token transferability looming, this AirDrop underscored Partisia Blockchain’s vision. Boasting an impressive pool of 25 million $MPC tokens, it offered unparalleled opportunities for early adopters. The first tranche kick started ecosystem expansion. Participants gained firsthand experience with leading MPC and blockchain technology, secured the network, and explored innovative dApps. As we geared up for MPC token listing, this AirDrop invigorated the ecosystem. 

We were thrilled to see our AirDrop program resonate strongly with the community, especially given the impressive growth in our ecosystem. Since its inception, our ecosystem has witnessed remarkable progress:

  • BYOC TVL increase: 780%
  • Total wallets increase: 43%
  • BNB BYOC increase: 154%
  • ETH BYOC increase: 358%
  • MATIC BYOC increase: 6141%
  • USDC BYOC increase: 3169%
  • USDT BYOC increase: 1619%

These statistics underscore the growing momentum and enthusiasm within our community, and we have you to thank. Detailed participation information can be found on our official AirDrop page.

Fast Track Grants: empowering developers to drive growth

We launched our fast track grants in February 2024. These grants are geared toward developers planning to build something smaller in nature, and does not have to be geared toward building a business. We will pursue developers who wish to contribute to the community by building examples, PoC, and tools. For more information about our Grants Program, click here.

Engaging AMAs: Exploring new frontiers with TeraBlock and Verida

On 14 February, we held the second AMA with the up and coming cross-chain decentralized exchange TeraBlock. This time around we invited TeraBlock’s Shivam Tandon, Founder and CEO, and Muhammad Ali, Chief Commercial Officer, to provide insights from a non-developer’s perspective, on why Terablock is a game changer for DeFi, powered by the Partisia Blockchain. On 22 February, we held a dual AMA with ecosystem partner Verida. Mathias Glintborg, our Head of Product, and Chris Were, CEO of Verida, both introduced the projects to each other’s community, its use cases and technological achievements. An excellent primer for both data on decentralized Identity for Web3 (Verida) as well as multiparty computation.

Celebrating innovation: Highlights from our Hackathon winners

Our Building Privacy in Web3 Hackathon concluded with a bang. We announced six winners, all projects that showcase our unique capabilities. From random number generations to supply chain management to zero-knowledge games, developers came out to really showcase their talent and show us how our amazing technology can be used. We will be continuing to work with them to bring them into the mainstream.

Empowering Rust developers through TinTinLand’s learning program

Partisia Blockchain and TinTinLand are set to launch a learning program aimed at attracting more Rust developers to our ecosystem. Currently, only 22,000 out of 30 million global developers are engaged in Web3. The collaboration aims to scale the developer ecosystem and unlock the Chinese developer community, attract new Rust developers from China, organize hackathons, workshops, and developer meetups, and promote our Grants Program. Together, we hope to expand developer engagement and foster growth within our ecosystem, particularly in China.

Thanks again to our amazing community for your dedicated support, we look forward to an exciting end to Q1 next month.
