Distributed Digest: Wednesday, March 27, 2019

The bZx team introduces Fulcrum, CryptoKitties rewards moderators, and BlockCities goes live next week.

Your daily distillation of crypto news for Wednesday, March 27, 2019:

bZx Pivots to Fulcrum

On Monday, March 25, Kyle Kistner of the bZx protocol announced Fulcrum, the team's forthcoming lending and margin trading platform. Kistner says the platform will not use centralized price feeds, nor will it administer margin calls in a centralized manner.

With the platform's initial launch on April 5, users will be able to access Fulcrum with an installed Web3 wallet such as MetaMask, or they can use non-installation-based platforms such as Fortmatic and Portis. The platform will initially support Ether lending, though in the coming months, Kistner maintains that lending on Fulcrum will be expanded to several ERC20 tokens.

Late last summer, the bZx protocol was launched on the Ethereum mainnet. Prior to its launch, the protocol was audited by ZK Labs, an independent Ethereum auditor.

Stalwart Kitties

To reward its new set of reddit and Discord moderators over the past year, CryptoKitties is gifting them their own "round table" of exclusive cats called Knight Kitties. Knight Kitties were given to moderators last year as well to celebrate their contributions to the CryptoKitties community.

Interested community members can step up and join CryptoKitties' social channels as moderators.

Build a Digital Metropolis

The team behind the tokenized architecture project BlockCities tweeted yesterday that the BlockCities mainnet launches next Tuesday, April 2. Players will be able to collect digital buildings, represented as non-fungible tokens on the Ethereum blockchain, as well as construct cities with unique infrastructures.

BlockCities hearkens to SimCity, a city-building video game part of many individuals' upbringing. The difference with BlockCities, though, is that players can own their digital assets in a way not offered by conventional gaming.
