As we continue to prepare our smart contract integration product suite for beta testing and follow developments in the blockchain space, it’s becoming increasingly clear how important interoperability and token portability is going to be. That’s why we created XPZ, an experiment in building a sustainable and extensible cross-chain programmable asset.
On Monday we began and completed a network and protocol upgrade for Perkle. This was a planned hard fork to enable several important new features, patches and performance improvements.
Last month MyEtherWallet (MEW) discontinued their original wallet (Vintage MEW) forcing everyone to switch over to the new interface (MEW v5), which means it's time to update our guide! If you're wondering how to set up a Perkle (PRKL) wallet using MEW v5, you've come to the right place. Let's jump right in.
We started the Perkle Network 1 year ago today as the layer 1 foundation on which to build the greater Esprezzo ecosystem. This is true in a technical and community-oriented sense: the act of building and growing a decentralized network through cooperation of miners, developers and community participation is at the core of the emerging culture of our business. While we embarked on this a year ago today, it was by no means the beginning of Esprezzo.

Devcon5 is upon us and coincides with Japan Blockchain Week — happening now! We’re sad not to be attending, but for those of you in Osaka for the annual Ethereum gathering, here is a curated list of events, talks and workshops that we would love to attend if we were there. There’s a great mix of programming for developers, researchers, infrastructure operators and more. As a UX Designer I was excited to see several product design and user experience-oriented talks.
Dan Shields is one of the most enthusiastic blockchain advocates and community builders we've met; in addition to co-founding and organizing Denver's popular weekly blockchain meetup, being an instrumental organizer of ETHDenver and ETHBoston, Dan has been an active builder of the Denver and global blockchain communities for the last two years. His popular meetup fosters creative thought and insight reminiscent of the Homebrew Computer Club and his startup Aproflow aims to revolutionize the way bright young students enter the workforce.

Blockchain technology has been on your radar for some time. You’ve done your research, read the case studies and now you’re convinced that transitioning to a distributed ledger data management system is the right decision for your business. And you may be right! The current systems in place for managing business data are fragmented, vulnerable to fraud, and slow to detect falsification, whereas blockchain, a form of distributed ledger technology, can provide increased security, accountability, higher efficiencies and often times lower cost.
Blockchain is becoming mainstream. For many in the crypto community, this acceptance is long overdue. However, as with any new emerging technology or industry (e.g. artificial intelligence or marijuana legalization) there remains a fair share of skeptics; those who are comfortable with the status quo and are quick to point out flaws in the system, opportunities for misuse, and the potential for the already disenfranchised to be further taken advantage of. For those of you who are cautiously optimistic and want to learn more about blockchain, we want to debunk some of the popular myths for you.
We’ve added some new capabilities to PerkleBot, our blockchain-integrated Discord bot built using Discord’s API and Esprezzo middleware libraries. Now in addition to tipping, creating and managing Discord crypto wallets and getting up-to-date network stats, Esprezzo community members can interact with tokens and smart contracts on the Perkle blockchain without leaving Discord. At the same time this update is also helping us test the underlying code connecting the Perkle blockchain to the Esprezzo Network.
Interested in emerging technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence? What about environment-focused technologies related to recycling or reducing carbon emissions? If so, the MIT Enterprise Forum Startup Spotlight is happening next week in Boston and you won’t want to miss it. We’re excited Esprezzo has been selected to participate! Here’s what to expect.
