What are the opportunities and challenges of building Web 3.0 applications? How can we enable non-blockchain developers? How can decentralized infrastructure enable a wide range of use cases from wikipedia, home security, PPE exchange, secure chat, AI, all the way to longevity of NFT?

On April 27th 2021, NKN successfully hosted the second Web 3.0 Tech Talk – Apps & Devs. We were joined by CTOs and tech leads from Bluzelle, IoTeX, IPFS, NKN, STORJ, and TAXA. These industry veterans share their experience and insights into these curious questions over a 90 minutes of lively presentation and panel Q&A with the audience.

Just in time for the holiday season, NKN foundation is pleased to announce Surge as the winner of our special award of the year 2020! The community developer team @rule110, who built Surge, will receive an award of 2 million NKN tokens. This year was very tough for every one of us but at least we can rejoice in the timely launch of the most significant and ambitious web 3.0 application ever built on top of NKN network and blockchain to date!
