As a community technical coordinator and developer for the Edgeware community (which is my self-assigned role) my role is to build, inspire and cultivate: I’m building with our parachain integration; I’m inspiring through getting people interested in directions we could go; And I’m cultivating by scouting people and projects with…

What tools do we have to build decentralised governance systems now? What examples are there of them in action? And how can we conceptualise and build them?

Right now, in 2021, the tools available to build decentralised systems with democratic “on-chain” governance capabilities are very real, very awesome, and are in practice and working effectively (here is an example). Communities are making decisions on using voting, councils, referenda, and treasury proposal decisions. …

Technology companies have created new platforms that have enabled new kinds of work, jobs and play that weren’t possible before. With that in mind , what kind of work and play could Kabocha enable?

Please don’t expect a professionally structured piece. I’m just writing what comes to mind. If you make it to the end, then let me know, say hello.

Work and play

The Internet brought many new kinds of jobs, which is a pretty obvious statement. New kinds of work for people have been created…

We’re creating a different reality, a new way of collaborating and sharing value.

Hey beings,

Ramsey here, community engineer and one of the creators of the Kabocha chain proposal.

After our Kabocha proposal is accepted by the community, we’re aiming to launch Kabocha toward the next batch of Kusama parachain slots…

Kusama, her Kabocha and polkadots (Source: @nybg on Instagram).

Whereas Kusama is Polkadot’s experimental canary net cousin, Edgeware is Polkadot’s secret love child and is quietly blooming in the background.

In this post, we talk about Edgeware, and their second special-purpose chain called Kabocha, a parachain on Kusama. And how it all relates…

Where did it start

Born out of Polkadot’s philosophy of multi-chain minimalism, Edgeware was the first-ever chain built with the Substrate programming framework, straight after Polkadot and Kusama were launched back…

If you’re using the EVM pallet of a Substrate chain, you might need to convert a substrate address into its EVM version, so that you can send transactions via the EVM.

We just need to quickly set up the environment, it’s very simple just follow and along and you will have the EVM version of your Substrate address at the end of this.

Time: less than 5 minutes.

  1. npm init
  2. Name the file “evm-convert”
  3. Copy this code and add into a…

In the UK, the high street has been destroyed as a result of online retail, lockdowns and lack of urban planning. In this free market world, how can we create the locality we wish to see? How can independent businesses outcompete chains and large franchises?

Two estate agents next to each other clogging up high streets.

I live in central London where high streets are mostly affluent or in demand. Unlike many high streets across the country, central london high streets are not all boarded up. So one can argue that we shouldn’t complain. But we’re not taking that approach, instead we’re asking how does it…

Working toward building decentralised systems fit for the next 1,000 years.
