Nervos & CMBI Launch $50M Blockchain Ecosystem Fund

As digital assets and blockchain technology see record adoption across a range of industries and verticals, the Nervos Network is excited to announce the launch of a new $50 million fund with CMB International (CMBI), a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Merchants Bank. Dubbed InNervation, the new fund will make early and growth-stage investments in startups building user-facing products based on blockchain technology.


Introducing Golden Legend 

Golden Legend is an NFT minting platform that gives NFT creators and collectors an internet-like product experience because of its extremely low barrier for issuer and receiver to create and exchange NFTs.


Develop and Deploy dApps on Nervos with Tippy

The first stable version of Tippy is now available. Tippy is a sandbox development environment available to Nervos CKB developers. Throughout the development cycle, developers can use Tippy, which allows them to develop, deploy and test dApps in a secure and deterministic environment.


Nervos Quarterly Letter: A Look Back at Q1 2021 

Our ambitious road map is already being tackled, and we have been hard at work delivering upgrades on the core protocol which will lead to our first hard fork later this year. EVM compatibility and Universal DeFi Applications remain high priorities for us through the first half of the year. We are also exploring the popular NFT space by focusing on key partnerships and looking at other tools and SDKs in order to bring real-world applications into the crypto world.


Founder Feature: Daniel Lv – The Community Builder

In this the first of the Founder Feature series, we will be hearing from Daniel — the Community Builder — to understand his current major focus, some big highlights in the growth of Nervos, and what he sees for the project in the coming years.
