All right everyone, we’ve had a crazy busy month with the launch and constant news, so this month’s update is going to be sweet, short and to the point. First things first:

ORBS IS LIVE!

After so many months of hard work and sleeping under desks, the Orbs blockchain is up, running, and purring like a cat. We would like to take this moment to thank our wonderful (and strikingly handsome) community all over the globe for everything they have been doing to support this massive endeavor!

You can find more on the launch of Orbs network by checking out these posts from last week:

Events

Of the events from this past month:

YOZMA meetup

The YOZMA meetup at Orbs’ Tel Aviv office was a great success! The event was attended by industry names and politicians from Israel as well as prominent technology businesses from Korea who came to hear from select high profile projects in the tech sector, from blockchain to AI-powered agriculture.

Korea

No month is complete without stopping by our favorite Korea! We traveled on the 28th to an Orbs launch event in Seoul to announce the release of our production layer and Validator – Delegator – Guardian ecosystem, as well as the ORBS token distribution (with a presentation by Daniel). Later we ceremoniously signed our agreement with Yes24, Korea’s #1 online bookstore. Finally, Orbs hosted a panel discussion with six famed Korean Influencers (traders and Youtubers) on the topic of blockchain tech mainstream adoption.

With around 700 attendees, the event was a great success, and even fun! The event was livestreamed, you can watch a recording of Daniel's presentation below (apologies for the shoddy audio):

Japan

Towards the end of the month, we made a visit to Japan. The event was held at Liquid’s beautiful Tokyo offices where our President Daniel Peled presented to a group of ~80 investors, engineers and corporate representatives from the tech sector on Orbs’ network and the open-source revolution, and our very own Mayo Hotta (Hi Mayo!) explained in more details about Orbs’ business progress and PoS universe and answered audience questions.

Meanwhile in San Francisco, Orbs was a featured partner at the Israel Dealmakers Summit, a three-day event at which top business executives from the U.S., Israel, Europe and Asia discuss innovation and trends in technology.
