Capitalizing on Blockchain’s Promise, Unicly Delivers NFT Fractionalization

Republished by Plato

Published

on

Unicly’s decentralized and permissionless protocol empowers the community to fractionalize, combine, and trade non-fungible token collections through sharding, improving overall NFT accessibility and fungibility through its novel design.

Accompanying Unicswap DEX Attracts Millions In Liquidity

Non-fungible tokens have become all the rage as platforms onboard high-profile artists, entertainers, and evangelists seeking a new way to monetize their collectibles, creations, and works of art.

Yet, the eye-popping auction figures aside, NFTs represent one blockchain area that largely remains inaccessible to wider audiences as surging prices concentrate overall ownership. Moreover, this nascent market’s dynamics don’t correspond to the fungible token market characterized by high liquidity among popular tokens.

By definition, a non-fungible token is not designed to be easily exchangeable. Because an NFT is unique, it ordinarily has a single buyer, contributing to an absence of market depth and almost no real-time liquidity. Accordingly, building an efficient secondary market is difficult, especially given that NFTs all have different values and varying levels of demand.

Despite these very real obstacles, Unicly, led by pseudonymous founder 0xLeia, has unleashed a platform that can fractionalize NFT ownership. Besides granting NFT holders a new channel for monetizing their existing NFT holdings, the protocol can provide liquidity to whitelisted collections while promoting more widespread adoption and participation.

Transforming Non-Fungible into Fungible

Unicly has developed an innovative approach for improving NFT fungibility. Unlike other projects in the space, this anonymous, self-funded initiative has introduced sharding to the equation. Sharding effectively splits a blockchain network into multiple parts to process transactions quicker while adding scalability.

In Unicly’s case, each NFT gallery can be a shard, distancing itself from other competing solutions which shard each NFT individually. The new protocol will allow users to create and fractionalize NFT collections from NFTs minted in either of Ethereum’s ERC-721 and ERC-1155 standards. Each collection is independently named and configured before settings, including token supplies and tickers, are determined for each gallery.

Once the corresponding NFTs are moved from a user’s wallet to smart contracts, uTokens (with the ticker mentioned above) are issued. After a preset percentage amount of uTokens are staked, the collection is unlocked for bidding.

Building Up NFT Liquidity

Secondary market liquidity has been the Achilles heel of NFT trading platforms, but Unicly has devised a cunning answer where others have failed. Taking a page out of decentralized finance’s book, the platform has introduced Unicswap, a fork of the popular Uniswap protocol. This AMM DEX helps users stake their uTokens and other cryptocurrencies to farm UNIC, the native Unicly token, through liquidity pooling.

Since unveiling the mainnet just days ago, the platform has already garnered significant popularity. According to figures, Unicswap attracted $3.5 million worth of liquidity to whitelisted pools in just four days. Additionally, 24-hour volume of $1 million puts competition SuperRare squarely in Unicly’s sights. After reaching nearly one-quarter of the competing platform’s monthly transaction volume in mere days, the total capitalization of NFTs in Unicly’s marketplace has now topped $20 million.

Proving beyond a doubt that its model is valuable, some significant collections have already joined the platform. uMask, a collection of 85 hashmasks, has reached a value of approximately $16 million, marking a 16-fold increase in the valuation from its original listing at $1 million. The first gallery listed on the platform, uUNICLY experienced similar exponential growth after listing 3 branded NFTs, rising from $300 to an astounding $180,000.

Another gallery, titled uLEIA, was built as an homage to the anonymous founder of the protocol by combining 0xLeia’s profile picture with AI-generated content. The platform has also appealed Chris McCann, a National Geographic award-winning photographer who listed his uCM collection of NFTs and other noteworthy collections from DokiDoki, MoonCats, WAIFU, and Nubians.

Taken together, Unicly’s fresh approach to NFTs is already demonstrating that a better model for community engagement and egalitarian participation exists, thanks in large part to sustainable incentives and valuable user-centric features.

Elon Musk’s SpaceX to Accept Dogecoin (DOGE) Payments for Space Missions

Republished by Plato

After Tesla’s moe of accepting Bitcoin (BTC) payments, Elon Musk’s space exploration SpaceX announced that it is will accepting Dogecoin (DOGE) payments for its pace missions. This comes just a day after Elon Musk called Dogecoin a “hustle” triggering a 30% price crash over the weekend.

eIntro

Is Musk trying to do damage control here? Maybe or maybe not! Whatever it is, this news is pretty exciting for all DOGE investors in the market. The announcement for “the DOGE-1 Mission to the Moon” was made by the Geometric Energy Corporation (GEC).

The mission involves flying a 40KG cube satellite of the Falcon 9 rocket that will carry “lunar-spatial intelligence and computational systems” on board. The mission launch is scheduled for Q1 of 2022 and so SpaceX also plans to start accepting DOGE payment during the same period. Here’s what Elon Musk tweeted upon launching Dogecoin to the moon.

Although GEC announced the DOGE-funded mission, it has not exactly said how much that would cost. Speaking about this new synergy between crypto and space missions, SpaceX Vice President of Commercial Sales Tom Ochinero said:

“This mission will demonstrate the application of cryptocurrency beyond Earth orbit and set the foundation for interplanetary commerce. We’re excited to launch DOGE-1 to the Moon!”

Solidifying DOGE’s Market Position

Well, last week, Elon Musk’s SNL tweet drove DOGE price to an all-time high of $0.71 with its market cap reaching $94 billion. Just before the SNL event over the weekend, Elon Musk had warned about the higher valuations. As it happened, during Musk’s SNL show appearance, the DOGE price crashed as much as 30% over the weekend, after Musk referred to it as the “hustle”.

Even at price time, DOGE continues to trade 16% down at a price of $0.54 and a market cap of $70 billion. It is still trading 10% positive on the weekly chart. Also, the recent SpaceX announcement seems to have little impact in turning the tide for Dogecoin.

One thing is sure that such announcements will certainly solidify DOGE’s market position and acceptance. With the recent announcement, Geometric Energy’s Chief Executive Officer Samuel Reid said:

“Having officially transacted with DOGE for a deal of this magnitude, Geometric Energy Corporation and SpaceX have solidified DOGE as a unit of account for lunar business in the space sector”.

The Transfer Token’s (TTT) Migrating to a DeFi Token Protocol

Republished by Plato

Published

on

[PRESS RELEASE – Please Read Disclaimer]

Atom Solutions Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Atom Solutions), developers of the cryptocurrency trading and overseas remittance platform “Eternal Wallet”, has announced that its in-house developed token, The Transfer Token, will migrate to a DeFi token protocol.

The Transfer Token (hereinafter referred to as TTT) is a token issued by Atom Solutions. The most exceptional feature is that by holding and lending TTT on our platform “Eternal Wallet”, developed alongside TTT, users are eligible for gaining dividends distribution.

Regarding the dividend distribution within the wallet, during an open beta test conducted from January through February, Atom Solutions recorded the below values:

・In the case of holding TTT within Eternal Wallet: 98% yearly

・In the case of lending out TTT into The Pool within Eternal Wallet: 218% yearly

The migration of TTT to a DeFi token protocol was largely born out of feedback gathered from the beta test.

This is essential in strengthening security, and preventing misconduct and data manipulation by specific operators and/or third-party attackers. By migrating the core of Eternal Wallet, the element that covers “The world’s highest received amount when remitting overseas”, to blockchain, Atom Solutions aims to provide a system with high transparency.

DeFi (Decentralized Finance) refers to the various financial services that can be provided upon the blockchain through utilizing smart contracts.

The financial services offered by DeFi encompass various sectors such as loans, insurance, exchanges, hedge funds, derivatives, prediction markets, etc. Also, unlike a centralized system with an intermediary is unnecessary, it has the feature of being a swift yet secure method of making a transaction. This notable difference from traditional financial systems has made it a focal point of interest in recent years.

Moreover, with DeFi, due to being operated on the blockchain, it has the benefits of cutting costs, increased composability and accessibility, and high transparency.

Atom Solutions, from here on forward, by further increasing the presence of TTT within the DeFi ecosystem, aims to further expand on the convenience and profitability of the services’ users.

In addition, in conjunction with this, the company has also updated the Whitepaper regarding TTT. Click here for more information.

About Atom Solutions

Atom Solutions is a Japanese FinTech corporation with 10 years of experience and achievements since its conception. In addition to abundant expertise in financial and technology sectors, we have filed for and obtained several patents related to our lending and Pool functions and much more. Armed with these we aim to realize “The world’s highest received amount upon overseas remittance”.

In our sights is not only Japan, not only Asia, but all countries across the globe. In the near future we aim to expand the number of countries where our services can be used worldwide and intend to deliver the best possible service to our users.
