News From Our Partners


Taiko has launched industry-leading community development programming. According to a May report by Electric Capital, Taiko is among the teams with the highest growth of full-time developers in the last quarter.

This month Taiko kicked off“ Tea with Taiko” to provide a more focused and interactive session for the community. Through workshops and focused sessions, participants dive deeper into specific topics and gain more knowledge and connection with each other.

Take a deep dive into Taiko protocol design in a recent blog post and learn more about Taiko’s new open research initiative — the ZK Research Digest. We look forward to seeing what new innovations and contributions arise from Taiko and the team’s stellar community activation programming.


What if you could search Ethereum as easily as asking ChatGPT? We are proud to announce our partnership with Airstack. Airstack helps developers easily integrate on-chain & off-chain data into apps, skipping the complexities of web3 data integration. Developers can query on-chain and off-chain data sources using natural language, saving time and lowering the barrier to entry for new applications.

The team announced a successful raise of $7m in early-stage financing across 2 pre-seed rounds led by Superscrypt with backing from WWVentures, NGC Ventures, and more.

On May 23rd AssetDash minted its flagship Vanta NFT collection on Magic Eden at a price of 5.5 SOL. The 10k collection sold out in 18 minutes. Through the Vanta NFT, AssetDash aims to offer premium benefits to early adopters and supporters.

Similar to a “Black Card” in traditional finance, owners of the Vanta NFT will be treated as the most premier member group within the app. The NFT grants access to premium features and utility including a rewards multiplier, exclusive Vanta drops and deals, and access to a token-gated community. A PFP collection is planned for Vanta holders, and we look forward to what the AssetDash team has in store as they set out to redefine community development and NFT utility!
