Top Korean Exchange Bithumb Lists $CKB

As we’ve continued to expand Nervos’ presence in blockchain and cryptocurrency communities around the world, we’re particularly excited by the growth we’ve seen in South Korea. That’s why we’re pleased to announce CKByte ($CKB), the native token of the Nervos ecosystem, is now listed on Bithumb, the most popular digital currency exchange in South Korea.


Nervos Unveils 2021 Roadmap at Town Hall

Since 2021 began and we announced CKByte’s ($CKB) listing on Binance, the Nervos community has been anxiously awaiting a glimpse into Nervos’ plans for the rest of the year. That’s why on March 2nd we made the 2021 roadmap our focus for our fifth Town Hall.


Nervos Launches TrailBlazer Program

We have created the TrailBlazer program as a way to increase the scope of Nervos’ reach in different locations around the world, but to also offer an opportunity for our community members to be a part of the expansion process.


xUDTs: The Next State of UDTs

After the successful launch of sUDTs — which are tokens that can be easily created by users to tokenize assets while being secured on Nervos’ CKB Layer One blockchain — Nervos is excited to introduce xUDTs.


Bibox Lists Nervos CKB for Trading

On the heels of CKByte’s ($CKB) listing on U.S.-based exchange Voyager, we’re excited to announce our new listing on Bibox, an AI-enhanced encrypted digital asset exchange providing users with a full range of blockchain financial services.


TrailBlazer Spotlight—Eduardo: LatAm

In Part Two of our TrailBlazer Spotlight Series, we spoke to community lead Eduardo Garza, from the Latin America region.

Just like Jinho, from South Korea, Eduardo gave us some insight into the blockchain space across the Latin America region and how it has been growing a Nervos community over there.


Digging Deep: A $CKB Miner’s Tale

This is our second instalment of the Hodlr’s Digest (for Part I, click here) a series of stories about Nervos and $CKB from our community. This time, we speak to Alan, a $CKB miner.


Hodlr’s Digest: The Master Hodlr

This is our third installment of the Hodlr’s Digest where we speak to different members of the Nervos community to hear their experience with $CKB and other aspects of the ecosystem. 

This time we speak to Shaoquan — our official Master Hodlr and the person we know to be the longest individual investor in $CKB.


Hodlr’s Digest: A Tale of Greed and Fear

This is our fourth instalment of the Hodlr’s Digest and we are doing things a little differently. Instead of a Q&A, we have asked CKB Holder YouXun to tell us about his experience through greed and fear in different bull and bear markets through the lens of CKB.
