  • Chia has updated the Roadmap to include the XCH-ETH bridge they will be writing but not running. Twitter Spaces AMA on the 15th. Austin and Jon, will you be running validators?

Community Software Updates

  • Both Mintgarden and Dexie are now listed on the website at which hosts PWA based apps. Think Websites that can run on Desktops. Having been able to use Mintgarden desktop this has me feeling good.
  • The folks at have launched an open source Chialisp library around smart contract creation. JON what do you think about this? 
  • Accounting software is heating up as has launched and this is a project from Scrutinous. This enters the field with the teams offering of statements recently. Austin, how has your experience been with these?
  • We have a community dApp tool demo from the folks at showing off what looks like a dApp manager and BBS system. I hope to get some better video on this one, the end was a bit confusing as to what it was showing. Need more info.
  • Grant posted a demo of the BTC to XCH swaps that they plan to implement in the Evergreen 1.4 wallet. Jon, do you know if these offer files will be available on Dexie and will they be available on any known BTC markets?

Community Happenings and Web3
