Gear partners with the biggest Mexican universities to bring first Web3 universities hackathon



Gear Technologies is the company behind the Gear protocol, an innovative substrate-based WebAssembly smart-contract platform promising to introduce a new paradigm for decentralized app development in the Web3 industry. Gear’s unique technology stack includes the actor model and persistent memory, which provide natively asynchronous messaging and parallel computation.

Not solely focused on tech development, the company has placed heavy emphasis on providing grassroots education on blockchain technology, Web3 development and naturally, Gear’s smart contract platform. This has come in the form of workshops hosted at universities everywhere from California to Vietnam, including Europe, Africa and Latin America. Seeking to offer education to as many as possible, Gear has also held many digital workshops, participated in various hackathons and presented demonstrations of its platform at major Web3 conventions around the globe.

As its efforts expanded with the success of workshops held in universities across Latin America, this mission has become much bigger than they could have expected. With the help of Fuel, Osis, Polkadot, YBB and leading Mexican universities such as UNAM, IPN, UAM, UPVM, ICEL, UABC, ​​UP, Tec de Monterrey, ITAM and UACAM, Gear managed to organize the first ever Web3 Universities Hackathon in Latin America!

The First Web3 Universities Hackathon took place in Mexico Dec. 15 and 16. Featuring nearly 50 speakers and mentors, it was one the largest hackathons held across Latin America to date. The event brought together developers, influencers, university professors, Web3 professionals and members of the Gear team to share their knowledge and experience. The Gear team believes events like this are essential to bringing the next generation of developers into the Web3 space, and is planning to continue organizing such events in the future. Over 500 participants had access to workshops and presentations by educators and popular figures of the crypto industry of Mexico. The winners of the hackathon are the following teams: ITAM with “Decentralized Diary,” Tec de Monterrey with “Vote Chain,” UACAM with “SmartCube,” IPN ESCOM with “Decentralized Internet” and UP with “NFT ticket.” A total of $12,000 was distributed among the winners.

The hackathon also featured a special activity where specially invited artists painted pictures dedicated to different kinds of feelings, such as love, trust, freedom, wisdom and cats. These paintings have become the first in a collection of Vara non fungible tokens (NFTs) created using a unique smart contract based on Gear protocol technology. The contract includes the information on geolocation, the artist’s name and social network link and most interestingly, in six months’ time, it will automatically provide the next location for the new artists who wish to contribute to the collection. These artists will be required to create a painting under the same theme as the previous artist, ensuring that the collection eventually becomes a beautiful art gallery showcasing talent from around the world.

The “NFT feelings on Vara” collection is a dynamic and evolving work of art, with each new artist adding their own unique contributions to the end result. The specifics of each piece, including the number of paintings, style, artist name and place of creation, are randomly determined on the Vara testnet blockchain. The smart contract ensures that each addition to the collection is unique and adds an element of unpredictability to the final artwork. The first-ever Gear Christmas party auction featuring these NFTs from Mexico’s talented independent artists took place on Dec. 17 at Bitcoin Embassy Bar in Mexico city and was a great success, with all paintings selling out! All income generated from the sale of the NFTs went directly to the artists, and the buyers got not only the NFT but also the real painting done by the artists during the hackathon.

Gear’s chief ecosystem officer, Pavel Salas, commented: “Gear was honored to be able to facilitate and take part in this incredible event, bringing together universities, Web3 industry projects, students and many more to learn and collaborate. Featuring an impressive lineup of speakers, workshops, networking opportunities, side events and auctions, it was an unforgettable experience for all who attended. The hackathon provided a unique opportunity for attendees to connect with experts in the field and learn about the latest technologies and trends in the Web3 industry. It was just the beginning. We expect to do the next one in six months with even more students from a broader number of universities and a bigger number of projects to collaborate with.”



Hamilton Lane’s $2.1 Billion Flagship Direct Equity Fund Now Available for Investment on Securitize



Individual investors can now access Hamilton Lane’s flagship direct equity fund, Equity Opportunities Fund V (“the Fund”) through a new Securitize feeder fund tokenized on Polygon. Leading private markets investment firm Hamilton Lane (NASDAQ: HLNE) recently closed the Fund on nearly $2.1 billion of investor commitments, and is making a portion of the vehicle accessible via a feeder fund on a secondary basis to individual investors. The new tokenized fund will significantly increase access to this historically high-performing asset class, with minimum investments reduced from an average of $5 million traditionally to $20,000.

Securitize is the leading platform for expanding access to some of the highest-performing, real-world, private markets asset classes, which have historically been inaccessible to most investors, including private equity, venture capital, fine art and mature start-ups, consistent with U.S. regulations.

Hamilton Lane is one of the world’s largest investors and allocators of capital to the private markets, having deployed more than $37 billion across the private markets in 2021*, and with nearly $824 billion in assets under management and supervision, composed of more than $107 billion in discretionary assets and approximately $717 billion in non-discretionary assets, as of September 30, 2022. Equity Opportunities Fund V provides investors with diversified exposure to unique and differentiated deals through an efficient fee structure. Including this Fund, Hamilton Lane’s direct equity platform has raised approximately $3.7 billion since the outset of the fundraise. Currently comprising 30 investments in mostly mission-critical businesses, as of September 2022 Equity Opportunities Fund V has already achieved a strong gross internal rate of return.

“The new Hamilton Lane tokenized fund is a major step in the continued democratization of the private markets by significantly expanding access to the historically high-performing private equity asset class, particularly through reduced investment minimums,” said Carlos Domingo, co-founder and CEO of Securitize. “Private equity has outperformed the S&P 500 by 70% over the past 20 years, but that performance has mostly been enjoyed by major institutions, sovereign wealth funds and university endowments. Individual investors can begin accessing these opportunities, too.”

The feeder fund will be accessible to qualified purchasers with at least $5 million in invested assets, of which there are approximately two million in the U.S. The fund is offered by Securitize’s registered investment advisor, Securitize Capital, through its broker-dealer and alternative trading system, Securitize Markets, which is also a member of FINRA and SIPC. Securitize and Hamilton Lane intend to launch two additional feeder funds in the months ahead.

Victor Jung, Head of Digital Assets at Hamilton Lane, commented: “Hamilton Lane is committed to investing in and adopting transformational solutions with an aim to deliver best-in-class services to investors looking to access the private markets. We’re excited to launch Equity Opportunities Fund V on the Securitize platform – our latest step towards helping more investors gain access to the historically strong returns and performance opportunities generated within the private markets, while increasing usability and transparency through the use of blockchain technology.”

Shares in the feeder fund will be tokenized on the Polygon blockchain, which is fully compatible with the Ethereum ecosystem, inheriting its robust security while also being orders of magnitude more efficient.

Highly regarded for its scalability, Polygon is rapidly becoming the blockchain of choice for major institutions with existing institutional partnerships ranging from BitGo, to Cumberland DRW and GSR, as well as multiple major brands from the retail, entertainment, tech, gaming, and payments space. The existing Polygon network is home to some of the biggest Web3 projects, such as Aave, Uniswap, and OpenSea, and well-known enterprises, including Robinhood, Stripe and Adobe. The Polygon blockchain is carbon neutral with the goal of leading Web3 in becoming carbon negative.

“The tokenization of private funds is a massive leap forward for investors and fund managers – a broader pool of investors enticed by greater opportunity and disintermediation – but also for the greater understanding that practical applications of blockchain will make a marked difference in democratizing financial opportunity,” stated Colin Butler, Global Head of Institutional Capital at Polygon Labs. “Polygon makes these asset classes accessible, secure, and scalable, and frankly the Polygon network is being built to become the home of global financial markets.”

The new tokenized feeder fund is offered by Securitize’s registered investment advisor, Securitize Capital, through its broker-dealer and alternative trading system, Securitize Markets, which is also a member of FINRA and SIPC.

*The 2021 capital committed includes all primary commitments that closed during the year 2021 for which Hamilton Lane retains a level of discretion as well as nondiscretionary advisory client commitments for which Hamilton Lane performed due diligence and made an investment recommendation. Direct Investments includes all discretionary and nondiscretionary advisory direct equity and direct credit investments that closed during 2021. Secondaries includes all discretionary and nondiscretionary advisory secondary investments with a signing date during 2021.

All Private Equity – Hamilton Lane’s definition of “All Private Equity” includes all buyout, venture capital, and growth equity funds.
Buyout – Any Private Markets fund that generally takes control position by buying a company.
MSCI USA Small Cap Value Index – The MSCI USA Small Cap Index is designed to measure the performance of the small cap segment of the U.S. equity market.
MSCI World Index – The MSCI World Index tracks large and mid-cap equity performance in developed market countries. Russell 3000 Index.

The Launching of the BIFROST Network, a Multichain Gamechanger



The multichain middleware platform BIFROST run by PiLab Technology, a South Korean VC specializing in blockchain services, recently unveiled their mainnet, the BIFROST Network. Fueled by their own mainnet, BIFROST hopes to create an easy-to-use multichain experience and to foster a unique blockchain ecosystem that leverages the multichain technology.

The BIFROST Network is a permissionless Substrate-based, EVM-compatible layer-one blockchain solution, with reasonable fees (averaging $0.03) and fast finality. Through node operators called relayers, the BIFROST Network formulates an optimal crosschain route and provides an excellent environment in which DApps can easily grow.

With the launch of the mainnet, BIFROST is introducing an advanced bridge function that supports automatic rollback of transactions should any crosschain transaction fail. This mechanism reverts the transaction to its original state to prevent assets from being lost. Also, by providing a reliable price oracle with prices verified by network validators, BIFROST further enhances its security through decentralization. The fact that BIFROST’s previous DeFi projects including BiFi and ChainRunner are available on the mainnet, is another benefit of the network.

Furthermore, BIFROST created the BIFROST Ecosystem Fund in an effort to nurture their newly-founded ecosystem. By incentivizing development of multiple DApps on the ecosystem, it will foster and support the BIFROST Ecosystem and the many projects that decide to make BIFROST their homes.

Dohyun Pak, the CEO of BIFROST, exclaimed that he is thrilled to showcase PiLab’s technological prowess to the global audience with the launch of their mainnet, and that the company will continue to focus on the public adoption of blockchain technology by building a healthy ecosystem.

PiLab Technology is a blockchain-based technology company that has developed multiple multichain services, including BIFROST and BiFi. With the mission of enabling DApps to operate on top of multiple protocols, Dohyun Pak founded the company with Jonghyup Lee, CTO, and Changhyun Yoo, COO, in 2017.

Recognized for its innovative technology and proving the scalability of its products, PiLab has raised $8.4 million in Series A led by Korea Investment Partners, STIC Ventures, and Yuanta Investment.
