The festivities of the end of the year are in full swing as people around the world are spending this time with their close friends and family. For the EOS family this is a moment of reflection of where we’ve come as a global network, the ups and downs, but also the great year EOS has had.
Although this is a time of reflection, it’s also a time to look into the future and plan for an even better year. With this being the last week of 2022 - the week’s developments only compound on past developments and further strengthen the ecosystem.
The new series titled ‘Powered by EOS’ looks to showcase the many projects, applications, and integrations that are utilizing EOS to build the future of Web3. Over the years EOS has proved itself to be a leading tech for blockchain integration into many different kinds of applications.
For instance, it has been implemented into gaming, finance, collectibles, marketplaces, and social applications etc. It has also been adopted by big corporations, governmental institutions, and entire nations to enhance their day-to-day operations.
With EOS looking to help scale other blockchain networks such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, this series should uncover some interesting use cases for EOS. Not to mention the plenty more other innovative ways that developers are finding to implement EOS’ high-performance tech stack. Some of which you’ll come across on EOS initiatives such as Pomelo Grants.

During the last Antelope Coalition meeting, representatives of the member blockchains unanimously voted to postpone and reschedule the rest of weekly meetings to January 9, 2023, in line with the holidays. However, that wasn’t until the week’s agenda was attended to.
P2P Peer Discovery - The Coalition is currently discussing the budget for 2023 after which it will go about reviewing all vendors that wish to undertake the project and then appointing the task to the most suitable vendor. P2P Peer Discovery aims to make it easy for the casual user, app developer, API provider, block producer, or even an exchange to get in sync with the network.
Ledger Support - The ENF is in communication with Ledger (hardware wallet) to add support for Antelope chains and their cryptocurrency tokens.
Antelope IBC - Inter-blockchain communication between Antelope is edging ever so close to implementation. During this past week’s meeting it was announced that Antelope IBC passed an external security audit with zero major and zero minor issues found. The next steps are for each chain to prepare the smart contracts and multi-sig accounts involved with communication with other chains. From then on Antelope IBC would be ready to deploy.
Wallet SDK - Recently rebranded to WharfKit, the team behind it is working on the website to feature marketing, reference, and education material. Other kits such as the account and contract kits (milestone 2) are still being worked but have been relegated to a lower priority level, with the next milestones taking top priority. Milestone 2 is 75% complete and will continue to be worked on in line with the project's overall goals and priorities.
All other RFPs (Request for Proposals) such as the P2P Peer Discovery and RAM Limitation solutions will also have their deadlines extended to factor in the holiday period.

In an announcement made last week, Yves La Rose was invited to attend a fireside chat, along with other guests, in South Korea. The topic of the discussion which took place on Monday was on ‘the latest Web3 developments’.
“Thrilled to be back in South Korea for my 3rd visit in as many months to showcase the innovative capabilities of EOS, especially its unparalleled security measures! Join us... to learn how EOS is raising the standard for protecting users funds with safe and secure DeFi.” - Yves La Rose
SeoulWeb3 hosts monthly meet-ups in Seoul and invites Web3 leaders for talks and networking. Seeing that South Korea is one of the world’s leading countries in blockchain adoption, along with certain implementations and involvement of EOS at the national level, the relationship between the two will be one to keep a close eye on.
