Why everyone is so excited about Diem?

If you missed the moment when Libra turned into Diem, we don’t blame you. There was a lot of regulatory resistance against Facebook’s blockchain project, and it quickly lost the support of such key partners as PayPal, eBay, MasterCard, and Stripe. So when news of Libra stopped coming, a lot of people thought that the project had been shut down.

Instead, Facebook quietly renamed the blockchain Diem and is now targeting a pilot stablecoin launch at the end of 2021. …

Releasing a testnet is always an emotional moment. Finally, you’re showing something you’ve been working on for months to a wide audience…

Pontem Network is a Substrate-based experimental network that allows developers to build and test dApps compatible with the upcoming Diem blockchain. With the completion of its third milestone for the Web3 Foundation grants program, Pontem becomes the first project to bring Diem’s Move programming language to Polkadot.

About Pontem Network

Pontem Network is an ambitious testing ground for the soon-to-be-released Diem blockchain, spearheaded by Facebook. Built on Substrate and completely independent from Diem, Pontem uses a near-identical codebase, allowing developers to create and deploy solutions aimed at Diem before the latter is released. …

Digital art NFTs fetch thousands of dollars, so it’s not surprising that influencers and bloggers are looking for ways to join the NFT trend and turn their own work into crypto collectibles. But what would be the best platform for influencer NFTs?

It’s natural to think of Diem by Facebook first, because KOLs’ audiences are based on Facebook and Instagram. However, Pontem Network might be a better option, allowing bloggers to sell NFTs to the same 2.7 billion-strong audience but without the regulatory hurdles of Diem.

Recently, both Web3 Foundation and Wings Foundation have supported us with grants, so now Pontem Network is one step closer to become the “Kusama” for Diem. And today we are going to talk about one of the interesting possible cases of our project called Pontem Blocks*. We will explore more about this tool and its possible usages.

What are Pontem Blocks?

In a nutshell, Pontem Blocks is a case that brings different DeFi tools together in one place. It allows users to create their own strategies, unite all operations into one transaction, and give external developers a chance to monetize their own developed blocks.

At the beginning of 2021, non-fungible tokens (NFT) made a lot of noise and became one of the most debated branches of the crypto industry.

The number of projects built on the NFT ecosystem has been rapidly growing ever since. And all because NFTs show the potential to change how people make art, buy products digitally, and express themselves.

Let’s take a closer look at what makes NFTs so special and how you can benefit from them.

NFTs in short

An NFT is a type of cryptographic token with extra opportunities. One NFT is unique and impossible to be replicated, changed, or supplemented…

Today we present a short digest of the events that we recently had, and at the end, you will find interesting news.

For those who are acquainting themselves with our project for the first time, here is Pontem Network in four points:

  1. What Pontem does is connect Diem by Facebook and the decentralized world, including the emerging crypto markets. The network will help Diem users get access to all the use-cases provided by the unregulated society, such as financial instruments, DeFi and NFT, and even games.
  2. We’re keeping on our road to become one of the Polkadot Parachains and support…
