Using web3 in 20 fields ranging from smart contracts, supply chain management, insurance, arts, media, fundraising, and identity verification, the first initiative aims to ensure that the city promotes the benefits of blockchain technologies and “promotes equity, diversity, accessibility, and inclusion” in the technological ecosystem.

Ethereum Staking Protocol Swell Raises $3.75M

Last week, Ethereum crossed a crucial milestone in its long-awaited move to proof-of-stake, with the Ethereum 2.0 staking contract now holding 10 million ETH (about $26 billion). Amidst this backdrop, Swell, a new staking system, has raised $3.75 million in a seed round led by Framework, IOSG Ventures, and Apollo Capital.

The key benefit of Swell, according to the company, is that it makes it easier for customers to earn additional income through in-app “vaults.” In April, Swell expects to launch its beta on the Ethereum mainnet. Later on, the company wants to expand to more blockchains, beginning with Avalanche and Polygon.
