First Cardano ADA Cryptocard created
Edited: The first ADA cryptocard has just been created. Though the card is not live yet for the Cardano enthusiasts, the teams are working hard to make this happen in the shortest future.
But what is a cryptocard? A cryptocard is a card that has the same functionality as a debit card except that instead of drawing currency from your bank account, you draw currency from your cryptocurrency wallet. Any purchase that you make with the cryptocard will make your crypto coins be exchanged for fiat currency, and sent to the merchant.

Enterprise Ethereum Alliance is Joining Forces with Hyperledger
Ethereum Alliance is joining forces with Hyperledger from today.
“The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance and Hyperledger today announce that we are formally joining each other’s organizations as Associate Members. This will enable more active and mutual cross-community collaboration through event participation, connecting with other members, and finding ways for our respective efforts to be complementary and compatible. The collaboration between our organizations will further accelerate the adoption of blockchain technologies for business.”
This alliance could have a significant good impact on both sides. Hyperledger developers can now work on code that conforms to the EEA (Enterprise Ethereum Alliance) specialization and certify them through EEA certification testing programs expected to launch in the second half of 2019. On the other side, EEA community members working on specifications and standards can turn to Hyperledger to collaborate on software implementations of those standards.
This relationship surely will provide more opportunities for both organizations. It will be interesting to see the progress of this alliance in the long term.

This is a community driven service created to provide a payment solution for IOTA similar with how PayPal works. It also distinguishes itself since most cryptocurrencies generate new addresses every time, but in this case, you can use an e-mail that will never change, it will stay there forever. Funds can now be moved independently from each other without having to generate and publish new addresses. More details about this can be found here.
