Bitpie builds stablecoin bridge between Ethereum and CKB

Portal Wallet and pw-sdk: Connecting blockchain users around the world
Portal Wallet is able to support fingerprint ID, Face ID and other biometric verification methods to create wallets because of its WebAuthn technology. Facial recognition, iris recognition, voice recognition, and physical keys have all become popular and convenient ways to use WebAuthn to access internet apps and other products. Because of CKB’s strong cryptographic primitive support capabilities, this set of standards based on asymmetric cryptography can also be supported on CKB. That means users can access and use Portal Wallet through a series of biometric verification methods such as fingerprint ID and Face ID.

Advanced CKB mining infrastructure with Insight
The Nervos Foundation is pleased to announce that the blockchain R&D wing of Insight, composed of top alumni from their decentralized consensus fellowship and other professional training programs, has received approval for a mining infrastructure grant! There are two key components to this grant: support for next-generation mining communication protocol Stratum V2 and the automation of mining pool software deployment.

Nervos shares CKLabs update and holds Q&A at Town Hall
Launched earlier this year, CKLabs is an exciting opportunity for emerging blockchain developers and teams to receive funding and hands-on support for their projects. During the Town Hall, we provided an overview of the structured four-month program and had the opportunity to hear from our first cohort members: Portal Wallet, a wallet built on Nervos’ Common Knowledge Base (CKB) that runs in any Ethereum wallet’s dApp browser, and Tocial, a digital platform that enables cosplayers in China to share photos, make friends, and monetize their work.

Millions of Indonesian users can now trade Nervos CKB on Indodax
We’re excited to announce CKB, the utility token for the Nervos Network, is now listed on Indodax, Indonesia’s largest crypto exchange. Starting today, users will be able to buy and sell CKB using rupiah on the platform. The listing on Indodax will bolster Nervos’ presence in a key crypto market and add more liquidity for CKB holders.
Q&A Session with #NervosHack winners SECBIT, NerBRos, and LeapDAO
A few weeks ago we hosted a 10-day virtual hackathon with teams already building in the Nervos ecosystem, including LeapDAO, SECBIT Labs, NerBRos, GrowFi, and Rebase. We were very impressed with all of the projects, but ultimately only three teams could be named the winners.
