Quantstamp Community Update - August 2022

Quantstamp Announcements
September 7, 2022

What’s Trending

Ethereum Merge: The long-awaited Ethereum Merge is expected to take place mid September, when the network will change its consensus protocol from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake. On Tuesday, September 6, the Bellatrix upgrade—the network's final hard fork prior to the merge—marked a major milestone that prepares Ethereum's Proof of Stake Beacon Chain (Consensus Layer) to merge with Ethereum's mainnet Execution Layer. 

Before the Beacon Chain went live, Quantstamp audited two separate Beacon Chain clients, Teku by ConsenSys and Prysm by Prysmatic Labs.


Notable Audits

Celer Network: A Tendermint-based layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum, Polkadot, and other blockchains to drive mass adoption with rollup-like technology.

DerivaDex: A decentralized derivatives exchange that is governed by the DerivaDAO app.

JPEG’d: A lending protocol bridging the gap between DeFi and NFTs.

Klex: A portfolio rebalancer and AMM on Klaytn.

Oaysis: A public blockchain for gaming with EVM compatibility.

Zed Run: An NFT game where you can race, breed, and own horses on the Polygon blockchain.


Curated by Quantstamp

Curated is hosted by Sabby (@sabsnft) and Tyler, members of Quantstamp’s NFT team. The podcast is a curated series of conversations with web3 founders and thought leaders on topics like NFTs, DAOs, and the metaverse. 

In Episode 15, Sabby and Tyler talk to Snowfro, the founder of ArtBlocks. Art Blocks is an Ethereum-based NFT creation platform where artists can create and sell on-demand generative art. In Episode 16, they chat with Shannon Snow, COO of World of Women, covering everything from what’s happening in the WoW ecosystem to entertainment, storytelling, and philanthropy.
