In 2005, Y Combinator (YC) was born.
A startup accelerator based out of Silicon Valley, YC has helped launch over 2000 companies into the world including industry giants like Coinbase, Airbnb, Reddit, DropBox, Stripe, and Twitch — just to name a few.
As of January 2021, the combined value of all YC companies totals over $300 billion dollars.
Within the first 75 days of launching, the Flashstake protocol hit some ridiculous numbers.
The market spoke, and the market said it enjoyed Flashstaking.
While we are extremely excited about our past, this post is about our future. Here are five things for Flashers to look forward to in 2021.
Last week, we announced Blockzero Labs would be offering…
Earlier this year, we described a vision and potential model for crypto projects to harness the power of Flashstaking through a concept called an Upfront Flashstaking Offering — UFO for short. Details in the video below.
The idea was pretty simple.
Instead of a person having to swap their hard-earned crypto to get their hands on an up-and-coming project, they could instead Flashstake for these tokens.
When a user Flashstakes, they are locking up (staking) $FLASH for a pre-determined amount of time, and immediately, the user is returned instant upfront yield to their wallet in the native token they…
Important overview of this article:
In our continuous efforts to secure and decentralize the Blockzero Labs protocol, in the coming weeks you will see large transfers from the original legacy accounts to our new Multisig wallets.
Here is a list of the current “legacy wallets” that will see outbound transactions.
Legacy XFO Wallet
Legacy XSI Wallet
Legacy XLP Wallet
Legacy Flash Funds
Here are the multisig wallets and what they are used for:
Blockzero Vortex (Orbit #1)
In the first 18 months into our journey of building Blockzero Labs, we have hit some absolutely amazing milestones.
However, more than all these achievements, there are two stats that may be more impressive than the rest.
One of the biggest misconceptions many people…
The Time Value of Money (TVM) is a straight forward concept:
Money you have now is worth more than the identical sum in the future due to its potential earning capacity.
While time traveling in the physical world is something still reserved for the adventures of Marty McFly, what if it were possible to time travel in the financial world? What if we could redeem money from the future, today?
The invention of Ethereum made all of this possible.
In a decentralized and permissionless manner, smart contracts allow us to manipulate money — but not just how we interact with…
The process for submitting an official Blockzero Proposal is as follows:
The Proposal is then open for Citizens to debate, ask questions, and clarify any unclear points.
After one week, any Blockzero Council member can take this Proposal and submit it directly onto Blockzero Labs’ official Snapshot Page.
Using eligible tokens (currently $XIO + XLP tokens), Citizens are then able to vote on the outcome of this Proposal. …
Two weeks ago, I met a VC at a local Ethereum Meetup who had never heard of Blockzero Labs or what we were about.
Although I was not there to raise capital, I was excited to tell the story of Blockzero to a new person and share our vision of becoming the “YCombinator of the Decentralized World”.
While I quickly jumped into what we were building and the amazing community behind us, one hour into the conversation I realized this person was still not clear on the most important part of our entire ecosystem — the functionality of the token…
As the first quarter of the year comes to a close, we could not be more proud of what the Blockzero Labs community of Citizens has accomplished so far in 2021.
