NNT Catch Up
Neo News Today hosted Elements CTO, Keith Hudnall, on episode 62 of the NNT podcast. Discussion topics included what server-side solutions entail, why the team chose Neo for its first partnership with a blockchain entity, NFTs and their potential purposes, and much more.
In the interview, Hudnall talked about how Elements is making blockchain functionality more accessible through its server engine infrastructure. He went on to discuss how Neo opens new possibilities to utilize assets and tokens for traditional developers. One unique way the team intends to embrace blockchain and tokenization is by creating an admin tool that allows developers to deploy and manage NFTs. Ultimately, Hudnall hopes that Elements can bridge the traditional development space to incorporate blockchain-based solutions.
Neo News Today released a feature article on Neo Frontier Launchpad Excellence award winner, Nekohit. NekoHit aims to bring a crowdfunding model for content creators to the Neo ecosystem. NekoHit is a decentralized application that aims to utilize the Neo N3 blockchain to fund creative endeavors. The platform will seek to connect content creators with individuals who can offer funding on a per-project basis instead of the subscription model used by other solutions such as Patreon. NekoHit’s Work Contract Agreement is a smart contract designed to give both creators and sponsors more control over the crowdfunding process. To protect patrons, the WCA offers an insurance-like mechanism that will automatically refund the patron if the creator fails to meet the schedule.
