1.country – Web2 Domain names meet Web3 Profiles
Today, Hidden State, a Harmony ecosystem partner, announced the launch of world’s first integrated platform for Web2 domain names and Web3 profiles, giving users a unified digital identity & brand solution. 1.country is a game-changing approach that delivers users with a one-stop-shop for domain registration, management, monetization and more.
Until today, users could either buy a traditional web domain name through domain name registrars or a Web3 domain name based on smart contracts. With 1.country they don’t have to choose. 1.country delivers an ICANN approved top-level domain with the superpowers of smart contracts. Harmony’s ecosystem developers are working on adding new features, such as SMS wallet capabilities, token gated content, and an open development kit for anyone to build tools and products upon.
As Web3 evolves, creators need a solution to own their data and identity, figure out new business models, and capture the value that the current web fails to deliver. The current Internet is dominated by advertising business models which extract value from users — 1.country opens a new era of possibilities for digital commerce to empower them.
1.country leverages Harmony — one of the most scalable open blockchains with uniform sharding and 2-second finality. This allows users to buy a domain name without incurring high fees. Additionally, 1.country enables users to obtain a browsable domain within 5 minutes, significantly faster than the hours or days it takes for traditional website certification. Moreover, by using 1.country, users can make permissionless purchases without the need to share personal information such as credit card details, emails, or physical addresses. This eliminates the need for users to worry about their personal information being compromised or misused.
“With 1.country domains, we are bringing a world’s first yet again. This showcases what Harmony and our community can enable. We’ve been through a lot of adversity and I am extremely proud of our team for staying focused on building the future. We are thrilled to launch this new platform to bring the worlds of Web2 and Web3 closer together. With the support of our amazing community, we will continue to build, push forward and create value,” said Stephen Tse, Founder of Harmony.
Web3 identity is a rapidly growing space with projects such as Ethereum Name Service and Unstoppable Domains gaining over 5 million total registrations. Meanwhile Web2 profile pages like Linktree are serving 15 million users. 1.country combines the best of both worlds with a Web3 .1 name service directly linked to a Web2 profile.
With the goal of building the Internet where users own their personal assets, data, and communities, .country is the extension of the digital nations or network state ethos. A network state is a highly aligned online community with a capacity for collective action. By claiming a 1.country, users can start building their own digital communities and Web3 nations.
Harmony operates the .country top level domain and brings together the integration of Web2 and Web3 after significant engineering development. The Web3 connection with the Web2 domain registry is developed at the infrastructure level by Hidden State LLC, a Harmony ecosystem partner.
Get ready for the future of the Internet with Web3, and discover how it’s becoming a reality by claiming your domain name on harmony.one/1.

c, an Industry-Leading Cyber Security Firm, Declares Continuous Commitment to Protect Blockchain Projects From the Growing Threat of Cyber Attacks
Shellboxes, a leading Web 3 company with top-level blockchain security and consulting services, has announced its commitment to help project owners stay protected amid rising cyberattacks in the industry. The Shellboxes team has raised the alarm over the carefree attitude of most Web 3 project owners who pay little to no attention to the growing risk of cyberattacks.
According to a report by Chainalysis, 2022 witnessed the most significant loss of crypto assets to hackers. The report revealed a whopping $3.8 billion was stolen, mainly from DeFi protocols. As the risk of these cyberattacks increases in the Web 3 space, ShellBoxes is advising Web3 project owners to take the security of their platform/project seriously. These owners need to ensure their projects undergo robust and thorough security audits. Some project owners settle for low-tier quality audits with the sole purpose of laundering the business’ brand image instead of the security of the project.
ShellBoxes aims to not just awaken these owners to the potential dangers of below-par security audits; the company also offers blockchain security services. According to the ShellBoxes team, projects should undergo rigorous security audits before they go live.
The ShellBoxes’ Blockchain Security Solutions
ShellBoxes offers a two-fold blockchain security service. First, the company can help projects identify and resolve flaws in their already existing blockchain project. Second, the ShellBoxes team can develop highly secure and efficient smart contracts from scratch. The team carries out blockchain security, smart contract audit, and dApp security all covered within the blockchain audit. Through in-depth testing, ShellBoxes identifies and corrects existing loopholes in projects’ smart contracts. For dApp projects, ShellBoxes helps the owners detect any flaws before malicious entities can exploit them. Generally, the team helps Web3 project owners stay ahead of malicious hackers seeking to compromise and exploit their systems.
ShellBoxes provide owners with the opportunity to utilize blockchain technology to improve traceability and transparency in their project. The team also helps projects analyze the strategic use of blockchain and how it can improve their business standing. The company also provides projects with highly secure and impregnable smart contracts.

Chainlink Launches Powerful Web3 Serverless Platform for Developers
Chainlink, the industry-standard Web3 services platform, today announced the launch of Chainlink Functions, a powerful new Web3 serverless developer platform. With Chainlink Functions, developers can connect their decentralized applications (dApps) or smart contracts to any Web2 API and run custom computations on it in minutes using Chainlink’s highly secure and reliable network. This can be done with just a few lines of code and without the need to manage any additional infrastructure. With integrations for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Meta, AP, and more, Chainlink Functions is a powerful self-service toolkit for developers who are seeking to build the next wave of advanced dApps.
As demand continues to grow for connecting blockchain technology to real-world data, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) APIs, and traditional systems, developers often find themselves limited by how quickly they can build and scale new dApps. A lack of robust tooling has led to limited numbers of active developers in Web3, while the need to operate custom infrastructure and connect each dApp to disconnected data sources has limited the exploration of use cases in Web3 applications. Today however, those challenges become a thing of the past. With Chainlink Functions, a more familiar cloud developer experience is finally being brought into Web3.
“Web3 has the power to transform our world in countless ways. But for that promise to materialize, we need to make it easier for the 30M developers out there to bridge Web3 with the Web2 tools and infrastructure they’re already using,” says Kemal El Moujahid, Chief Product Officer of Chainlink Labs. “With the launch of Chainlink Functions, we are removing a major roadblock in the adoption of Web3, and making it easier than ever for developers to combine smart contracts with the powerful APIs and Web2 data sources they need to build amazing applications. As we help usher in a new era of app development, we are excited to see what developers can build.”
Among the many tools available in Chainlink Functions, integrations with some of the world’s largest Web2 service providers empower developers to build fast and reach consumers at an accelerated pace. For example, an integration with AWS Data Exchange and AWS Lambda provides developers with access to the vast datasets available in AWS Data Exchange and AWS Marketplace. This unlocks all new use cases for dApps and helps increase Web3 innovation and adoption, similar to Chainlink’s previous integration with AWS to provide Chainlink node-as-a-service.
“Chainlink Functions allows developers to easily call APIs from dozens of providers using one library and one set of credentials. We’re delighted to see how developers use off-chain, third-party data from AWS Data Exchange to enrich their applications,” said Noah Schwartz, General Manager of AWS Data Exchange and AWS Marketplace Foundational APIs.
In addition, a Chainlink Functions integration with Meta helps seamlessly connect Meta’s APIs to blockchains and to developers building on-chain.
“We are excited about the potential of Chainlink Functions connecting Meta’s APIs to major blockchains, making it easier for the Web3 developer community to build with Meta and unlock new innovative use cases”, says Ankur Prasad, Senior Director at Meta.
Some of the benefits of building with Chainlink Functions include:
- Extensive connectivity: Connect your smart contract to any data, device, or system, ranging from public and password-protected APIs to Internet of Things (IoT) devices and enterprise systems.
- Customizable computation: Aggregate and transform your data using highly scalable and customizable serverless runtime environments.
- Trust-minimized security: Build upon Chainlink’s secure and reliable decentralized oracle infrastructure that already helps enable $7 trillion in DeFi transactions.
- Self-service in minutes: Get started in minutes with Functions’ serverless developer solution, which features a CLI, starter kits, and a debugging environment.
Many developers already working in Web3 see exciting potential that can be unlocked with Chainlink Functions.
“Dynamic NFTs require secure access to on-chain data. Chainlink Functions makes getting data on-chain seamless, by allowing developers to connect NFTs to any API in minutes,” said Ethan Bazarganfard, Co-Founder of Playground, the creator of the NBA’s NFT collection. “We believe that this new tool will unlock countless new possibilities for dynamic NFTs and inspire developers to create exciting new use cases for this transformative technology.”
“Given that smart contracts are deterministic, there is no easy way for developers to access public or private APIs from the Internet in a trust-minimized and reliable way. Chainlink Functions solves this problem by utilizing the same network of highly secure nodes that power Chainlink Price Feeds to enable Web3 developers to pull any API with just a few lines of code,” said Ciara Nightingale, DevRel Engineer at thirdweb. “We are excited to enable developers using thirdweb to utilize this breakthrough technology when building their decentralized applications.”
The Beta Version of Chainlink Functions is now live on the Ethereum Sepolia and Polygon Mumbai testnets. Chainlink Functions will continue to expand in functionality over time and be deployed across more chains in the future based on user demand and feedback. When deployed on mainnet, Chainlink Functions will use a subscription model where users pre-fund a contract, akin to how subscriptions are used for Chainlink Automation and Chainlink VRF.
To learn more about Chainlink Functions and how it can help you build with increased connectivity, scalability, and flexibility, please visit the Chainlink blog. To sign up for the beta program, please visit https://functions.chain.link/.
Chainlink is the industry-standard Web3 services platform that has enabled trillions of dollars in transaction volume across DeFi, insurance, gaming, NFTs, and other major industries. As the leading decentralized oracle network, Chainlink enables developers to build feature-rich Web3 applications with seamless access to real-world data and off-chain computation across any blockchain and provides global enterprises with a universal gateway to all blockchains.

Kadena Grant Recipient Massive to Launch NoPool, a Decentralized Carbon Neutral Proof-of-Work Mining Pool
Kadena, the only scalable layer 1 Proof-of-Work (PoW) blockchain, today announced that Kadena Grant recipient, NoPool, has joined their ecosystem to address the reliance of PoW on centralized mining pools and minimize the environmental impact of mining Kadena. With the launch of NoPool, a Kadena-first, Stratum mining pool, Kadena miners will be given unique incentives to work toward novel carbon neutral certifications with support from the world’s leading manufacturer of cryptocurrency mining servers, BITMAIN.
NoPool is a crypto mining pool that works to accomplish three main goals:
- No centralization
- No emission footprint or conventional fees for low-emission miners
- No performance compromise
The NoPool project was developed by Massive, a decentralized blockchain resource provider that allows users to opt-in to being paid for idle computing power , after the project received a grant from Kadena Eco. NoPool represents a leap forward for PoW mining, as it is the first mining pool to offer specific incentives for miners to move towards more sustainable operations. As an example, Mining operations that use at least 80% clean energy are eligible to be certified as low-emission miners and get feeless pool service for one month per quarter to start.
Francesco Melpignano, CEO of Kadena Eco, commented on the news, “The launch of NoPool is a major development for the Kadena ecosystem, allowing us to minimize the carbon footprint of Kadena miners without losing the robust security against 51% attacks that generating proofs provides. NoPool will demonstrate that a PoW solution can be both decentralized and environmentally friendly.”
BITMAIN, which launched the ANTMINER KA3 in September of last year, will also be supporting the growth of NoPool by encouraging customers to move toward clean energy and join this unique mining pool. Additionally the Kadena Mining Club, a Kadena miner hosting service where users purchase an NFT for membership, will also be delegating hashrate to support the launch of NoPool. Added computing power will be important as the pool is in beta testing with NoPool designed to undergo progressive decentralization as new miners join the pool once access is opened to the wider public.
Xmei Lin, President of the BITMAIN Mining Division, commented on the launch, “As a leading manufacturer of cryptocurrency mining servers since 2013, we have been dedicated to supporting PoW mining as its the most secure consensus mechanism. With Kadena being the only PoW layer-1 that can scale, we’re committed more than ever to ensuring the growth of Kadena’s ecosystem and demonstrating that PoW can be made environmentally friendly as a result of NoPool’s unique incentives for miners.”
NoPool is currently available as a private beta and miners can sign up via their website. Following the private beta phase, NoPool will launch publicly for Kadena developers in the coming months.
Mark Cavallo, Head of NoPool, concluded, “The Kadena ecosystem provides optimal conditions for the development of NoPool because of its elegant improvement to the PoW consensus mechanism that increases transactions per second and decreases energy consumption per transaction. These features made the decision to build native support for Kadena into our sustainable PoW pool an easy one and we look forward to improving blockchain infrastructure and sustainability practices together.”
Kadena believes in the potential of blockchain to revolutionize how the world interacts and transacts. To realize this vision, Kadena has reimagined blockchain technology and its connective ecosystem from the ground up. Our multi-chain architecture and complementary tools are designed to make blockchain accessible for everyone – at speed, scale, and with energy efficiency previously thought unachievable.
NoPool is a cryptocurrency mining pool that was created to solve the problems of centralized mining pools controlling the majority of blockchain processing power and the environmental impact of that processing. The pool is part of a distributed supercomputer that combines hundreds of thousands of personal computers to perform blockchain and other processing, storage, and bandwidth tasks. In addition to being carbon neutral itself, NoPool offers first-of-a-kind incentives for miners to use clean energy.

With over 5 million users of the Wirex custodial app, the company launched theWirex Wallet in December 2020. It offers users complete control over their cryptocurrencies and NFTs, utilising multi-party computation (MPC) technology without seed phrase vulnerability to address security concerns with traditional crypto wallets. An unparalleled user interface allows built-in cross-chain swaps and direct access to popular DeFi protocols.
With over 100+ tokens available to buy, exchange and sell in the platform, XLM and USDC were strategically chosen as the next listings on the Wirex Wallet. USDC is a stablecoin pegged 1:1 to the US dollar with one of the largest market shares, whilst XLM is the native coin to Stellar used for transaction fees within Stellar blockchain.
Wirex and Stellar have been partnered for some time, sharing a goal of democratising access to crypto. Together, the two companies developed insightful research reports into crypto user behaviour to understand needs better, whilst in October last year, Wirex announced the launch of USDC on Stellar on their app on-stage at the Stellar Development Foundation’s Meridian event in Rome.
Pavel Matveev, CEO and Co-Founder of Wirex, said: “We’re delighted to work with Stellar to develop another world’s first across our platform, solidifying our reputation as an innovator. Integrating this complex non-EVM blockchain is a huge milestone for us, and is important in enabling more customers to access the benefits of more cryptos in a trusted and secure environment within the Wirex Wallet.”
XLM and USDC on Stellar will be available from today in the Wirex Wallet.
Wirex is a worldwide digital payment platform and regulated institution that has forged new rules in the digital payments space. In 2015, the firm developed the world’s first crypto-enabled payment card that gives users the ability to seamlessly spend crypto and traditional currencies in real life.
Founded in 2014 by CEOs and co-founders Pavel Matveev and Dmitry Lazarichev, Wirex was created to make the digital economy accessible to everyone. With over 5 million customers and rapid expansion into new territories, including the US, Wirex is uniquely placed to support and promote the mass adoption of a cashless society through creative solutions. To reflect the growth of the metaverse, throughout 2021, the company has continued to expand their offering into the CeFi and DeFi sectors.
EtherMail Integrates With Unstoppable Domains to Expand Web3 Communication Network
EtherMail, the first Web3 Email Solution setting the standard for anonymous and encrypted wallet-to-wallet communication, has today announced its integration with Unstoppable Domains, the leading provider of Web3 domains with more than 3 million registered domains.
This integration represents the latest step in EtherMail’s mission to reimagine email for the Web3 space. Up until now, valid EtherMail addresses have taken the form of 0x…[email protected], in which a user’s wallet address serves as the prefix for the EtherMail domain. Following today’s announcement, valid EtherMail addresses can be personalised using an Unstoppable domain, such as [email protected]
This integration makes it easier than ever before for anyone with an Unstoppable Domains address to sign up for Web3 newsletters. Instead of needing to know their complete wallet address by heart, they can simply use their Web3 domain powered by Unstoppable. Users are encouraged to claim their Unstoppable domain now to secure their custom digital identity for Web3.
As part of the integration, EtherMail will airdrop 10 million EMC tokens in a raffle to EtherMail users with an active Unstoppable Domains account.
Since closing a $3 million seed round in August 2022, EtherMail has rapidly developed a best-in-class framework for Web3 email communication, establishing partnerships with renowned NFT projects such as Probably Nothing, Toxic Skulls Club, inBetweeners and Prime Planet. This has enabled these projects to segment their asset holders based on the number of tokens held, the rarity traits of an NFT held, the specific type of NFT held, and more. By leveraging EtherMail’s proprietary Web3 email solution, these partners can tailor communication to their NFT holders accordingly and send custom rewards for contributing to the respective communities.
Founded in 2018, Unstoppable Domains offers Web3 domains that give people full ownership and control of their digital identity. The company has registered more than 3 million domains, which people can use to log into more than 650 Web3 applications, replace lengthy crypto wallet addresses, create decentralized websites, and build their Web3 identity. Unstoppable Domains has nearly 800 partnerships with leading Web3 companies like Polygon, Blockchain.com, MoonPay and more.
Shant Kevonian, CEO and Founder of EtherMail said: “As true innovators in the field of decentralized identity, Unstoppable Domains has underlined their credentials at the apex of the Web3 landscape, with over 3 million registered domains. This integration extends the reach of our Web3 email solution to these domain users, as we continue to set the standard for anonymous and encrypted wallet-to-wallet communication. Allowing users to generate personalized wallet addresses is a key step to break down barriers between Web2 and Web3, and we’re delighted to work alongside Unstoppable Domains in this mission.”
Sandy Carter, SVP and Channel Chief of Unstoppable Domains said: “Lengthy and impossible-to-remember wallet addresses are an obvious deterrent when it comes to enticing Web2 users to join Web3. Unstoppable Domains and EtherMail are firmly aligned on bridging this gap by creating a streamlined, user-friendly experience for people to start their Web3 journey. We look forward to expanding our partnership scope with EtherMail in the months ahead.”
