The NFT world has brought all kinds of people into the crytpo-sphere. Some are well versed in how crypto wallets work and others are new to the arena. This article should have useful information for both and those in between. I have gotten a number of questions from some people regarding various wallet solutions up to and including setting up a cold storage solution for WAX. I will run through your options below and link you to some helpful additional content to accomplish your goal no matter what you personal security risk profiles look like. I will start out by saying that I am not an expert in WAX by any means. That's why this is really a article full of links to resources for you to check out. The thing about WAX is that it is kind of designed around using their cloud wallet solution. You can pretty much do what you want on chain without it, but it makes life way easier. All the dapps are designed to work with it and it's integration is dominant across the chain.
Halo Platform announced a community proposal to move from the native Halo chain to become a member of the Ethereum community as an ERC token project. The announcement (see below) cited the impending move by Ethereum to ETH 2.0 and it's scaling solutions which Halo was initially trying to address with their chain. Being that Halo is a second degree fork of ETH (by way of Quorum) the migration will not require extensive work. All addresses and private keys will be able to migrate as all Halo addresses have a mirror address on ETH. Halo Update Time! I've written and rewritten this one multiple times as it's a little different then our normal updates. Instead of talking about development progress and other items, I want to open up a discussion with you, the Halo Community, about the path forward for Halo. Which makes it more difficult to write up. We have done some awesome things with Halo. The products we've created are outstanding and will continue to improve. Loo
As time goes on it's becoming clear that many of the planned Ethereum killers haven't yet been successful at killing ETH. Some projects still believe in the imminent ETH demise, others have become a second layer solution and other's still believe ETH 2.0 will fix a number of the scaling problems. If you are not familiar with ETH 2.0 I wrote a brief TL;DR that you can check out here. Being your own chain can be, and is for those that do it successfully, very powerful. Don't get me wrong, this is not meant as a slight to those projects that are making it, they are important projects and having their own chain makes sense for their use case. I want to see a diverse cryptoverse with options, I don't support widespread consolidation. But it is really hard to establish your own ecosystem, woo developers, onboard users and dapps and everything needed to make it work. Then you need to convince exchanges to build a wallet and integration for your chain as
