On Product Development

Cosmos x IPFS Plugin

We are working on an IPFS plugin that allows chain data from Cosmos SDK modules to be accessed through the IPFS network. The ISCN module will be the first use case of this plugin, which will be released as a separate repository so that all Cosmos SDK developers can utilize our plugin to connect their blockchain modules to the IPFS network.

LikeCoin chain FoTan expected to come along with Cosmos Stargate

The next version of the LikeCoin chain, FoTan, is under active development. We have been actively following the code changes of Cosmos Hub Stargate upgrade, and are preparing for a FoTan mainnet ready version to be released soon after Cosmos Stargate.

LikeCoin FoTan will bring the long-awaited ISCN module, which allows creators to register content metadata and publish their content on blockchain. Fotan will also incorporate most features brought by the major upgrade of Cosmos SDK, such as efficiency gain up to 100x, much faster full node sync, and faster upgrade.
