Last week, we announced a new partnership with Meerkat Company that allows pets to collect data and generate passive income, and creates a pet tracker that is operational for 3 months on a single battery charge.
This week’s news update covers more details, along with Supernodes application. The following is an original script of this week’s MXC news update.
California, MXC’s newest partner, and pets with profit. Welcome to this week’s news update! MXC CEO Sheen Hu was in California last week presenting at the EIT Industry 4.0 Showcase. Throughout the week he also met with MXC community members and enthusiasts in California.
MXC partnered with Shanghai startup Meerkat, using blockchain to improve pet tracking devices. That’s right, MXC’s blockchain protocol makes it possible for pet tracking sensors to have a battery life of roughly one month. Now, if you’re familiar with this tech, you’ll know that this is a massive improvement on the 2-4 day average these devices generally have. You can find the exact details on how we do this in the MXC Blog. With pet sensors on chain, we are also able to provide pet owners with the opportunity to list their pet sensor as a data source in the MXC InterChain Data Market. Your pet may someday help cover the tab of their next bowl of food, visit the vet, or that cute outfit it always wanted to try on.
We are still accepting supernode applicants. If you would like to be an MXC Supernode, click the link in the description and apply. Naturally, all applications must be received before the voting begins.
This has been this week’s news update. I look forward to speaking with all of you again next week. Until then, get active, get in the community, ask us questions — because it’s only together that we can build the future of IoT.
