LikeCoin community has been steering a steady course through choppy waters in 2022. Let’s have a brief review of what we have archived at the end of the year.
Civic Liker Web3 Launched
Civic Liker movement has enter the Web3 era on Feb 21. Users can get the membership by delegating 5,000 LikeCoin to “Civic Liker Node” and the stake-reward generated will be distributed to creators via the LikeCoin button. Liker Land has suspended credit card payment support due to regulatory risk.
Numbers Protocol x LikeCoin
Number Protocol partnered with LikeCoin to realize the decentralize publishing with authenticity on Feb 18. Users can register ISCN by Capture App directly.
During Feb 21 – Aug 22, in totally 182 days 50 million LikeCoin has been dropped to eligible addresses including Civic Likers, ATOM/OSMO holders, delegators and LP providers. Eligible users need to complete 4 missions to learn the project’s basics and to participate in governance in order to get the airdrop. We expect to promote LikeCoin to more crypto users by this campaign.
Multi-chain Wallet and Block Explorer: Cosmostation, Leap and Mintscan
Users can export seed words from Liker Land app (A custodial wallet) so to migrate to other non-custodial substitution such as Keplr, Cosmostation and Leap for transferring, delegating and voting.
Mintscan, a popular block explorer in Cosmos ecosystem, also supports LikeCoin.
LikeCoin chain upgrade
LikeCoin chain has completed two upgrades in 2022:
May 4: LikeCoin chain upgraded to version “LaiChiKok”, which is the fifth upgrade of LikeCoin chain. It is also the first time to use Cosmovisor for automatic upgrades. LikeCoin wallet address is changed to “like1” in LaiChiKok, and Cosmos-SDK 0.44.8 and ibc-go 2.1.0 were supported.
LikeCoin address changed from “cosmos” prefix to “like” prefix with backward compatibility can speed up the integration of LikeCoin with other applications in Cosmos ecosystem such as Cosmostation, Mintscan, Keplr, etc.
July 21: LikeCoin chain upgraded to version “StarFerry”, supporting NFT modules for the functions like NFT minting, blind-box and NFT marketplace chain API. This upgrade lays the necessary foundation for the Writing NFT application which to be launched later in August.
