- On Dec. 20th, Essam, NULS Community Manager in Australia & New Zealand, was invited to attend the AMA event of the Public Blockchain Alliance — “How to view the development of the public blockchain in 2018”. Essam mentioned that “community is the overriding part of the public blockchain ecosystem. If you develop a DApp or tool that no one uses, it’s worthless. First, you need to build your user base and delve into what products they need. It’s reasonable to operate in a public-chain way, which allows us to develop communities more easily, rather than providing services to individual companies. When blockchain technology is truly widely used in enterprises, more substantial changes will take place.”

At the workshop in Beijing, Jason shared the zero-based practical development of a smart contract.
- Liesa, NULS Core Team CEO, took the interview of the CSDN’s Blockchain Lemon-“Late winter: Can the blockchain warm up?” Liesa believes that the rapid development of an industry in its early stage is bound to involve people with different purposes, and also incur various situations, which are normal phenomena. The global economy is in the downward trajectory in 2018, understandably, anxiety and uneasiness have been ubiquitous in the global economy body. Blockchain, a brand new industry, is still in the early stage of development. People involved may be more in a sense of crisis than those in other industries. Every coin has two sides. Usually, under such crisis awareness, more future directions will emerge. For more information, please click HERE.
