ThunderCore Blockchain to Co-Host NFT Taipei – Investing News Network
– The global blockchain event NFT Taipei will run from December 9-18 in Taiwan's capital. One of the hosts, the Top 5 layer-1 blockchain ThunderCore is powering the NFT ticketing for the event and holding its own side event, Fun Taipei. The ThunderCore team is hoping to reach out to more NFT projects and gaming startups through its participation in the yearly conference.
ThunderCore founder Chris Wang is scheduled to speak at NFT Taipei on the importance of Web2.5 and how blockchain technology can gain mass adoption. He will be joined in the lineup by Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin , Twitch co-founder Kevin Lin , co-founder of Animoca Brands Yat Siu, The Sandbox co-founder Sebastien Borget , and Dapper Labs VP of Gaming Partnerships Fan Shen, among other celebrated attendees.
ThunderCore is a high-performance public blockchain with gas fees at a fraction of a cent and sub-second confirmation times. It's home to a massive ecosystem of NFT platforms , DeFi protocols , and GameFi games . Its monthly-active-user count is consistently over 400,000, and the chain excels in ecosystem retention, making it one of the key Web3 players to watch in 2023.
NFT ticketing and Fun Taipei
ThunderCore is powering the NFT ticketing for the main event of NFT Taipei. The tickets can be acquired through the online-ticketing-website ACCUPASS and are delivered to a TT Wallet address. TT Wallet is the cutting-edge crypto wallet that is the native wallet of the ThunderCore ecosystem. User retention remains a core tenet of ThunderCore's mission and has contributed immensely to the nascent Web3 ecosystem's growth during 2022.
ThunderCore is also putting on a side event for attendees of the conference called Fun Taipei. Users can participate in this side event by buying tickets for NFT Taipei or finishing a task on the Dream Pass website . The NFT tickets are being handled in conjunction with RE:DREAMER , a ThunderCore partner. RE:DREAMER re-imagines e-commerce for the metaverse with its Redeem Protocol , which makes it easy for the physical redemption of NFTs. The two partners are both strong believers in the online-merge-offline (OMO) aspect of Web3.
Featured speaker Chris Wang
ThunderCore founder Chris Wang , who previously sold his social gaming company Playdom to Disney for $563M , will be one of the headline speakers at NFT Taipei. When Chris first created Playdom, it was because Facebook had recently opened up its API to third-party developers. Chris knew at the time that he'd be better off building in an ecosystem that knew how to retain its users.
Since founding ThunderCore, Chris has taken the same approach. He has turned his blockchain into one of the most heavily trafficked in the world. The focus on ecosystem retention – which is done with a combination of recommendation algorithms, powerful AI tools, and other techniques – has led ThunderCore to routinely reach near the top of the charts on DappRadar for daily active users.
Blockchain mass adoption
Chris believes that blockchain technology will reach mass adoption when developers master both ecosystem retention and user acquisition. ThunderCore has the first part down, and now it's focused on onboarding the next billion blockchain users with a Web2.5 approach .
The vast majority of people online are still lingering on the old internet. The idea of Web2.5 is to make it easy for Web2 companies to reach these people by introducing Web3 features like NFTs into their traditional apps. NFTs are a particular focus, as they can be used for ticketing, airdrops, loyalty rewards programs, and much more.
ThunderCore has developed a toolkit to help Web2 developers for this purpose. The company helps its partners break into Web3 with its groundbreaking ThunderGene API tool , which allows for the easy deployment of blockchain features in any software.
Chris will be speaking on the aforementioned topics and educating his audience on how they can collectively accelerate blockchain mass adoption.

Following its expansion to Polygon, Magic Eden appoints games industry veteran Chris Akhavan to boost Web3 games vertical
Today, Magic Eden ("The Company"), the leading cross-chain NFT platform, announced the hiring of Chris Akhavan as its first Chief Gaming Officer. In his new role, Chris will be responsible for driving the growth of Magic Eden's gaming partnerships and supporting the development of enhanced game creator and collector experiences on the platform. Magic Eden believes Web3 gaming will grow into a multi-billion dollar per year industry by placing digital asset and gamer identity ownership in the hands of players, and will open up its massive Web3 audience reach to game developers to make this a reality.
Prior to joining Magic Eden, Chris served in a number of roles across the game industry navigating multiple platform and business model shifts. As Chief Revenue Officer, he helped lead Glu Mobile's turnaround from a struggling company from the pre-smartphone mobile games era with a $240M market cap to a leading modern mobile free-to-play studio that was acquired by Electronic Arts for $2.4B . Prior to Glu, he was an early employee at pioneering mobile gaming startup Tapjoy which created a platform leveraged by nearly every free-to-play mobile game in the early days of the App Store and Google Play, reaching over a billion mobile devices and ultimately being acquired by ironSource / Unity for $400m . Chris gained Web3 experience as Chief Business Officer at Forte and as part of Game7, a $500m Web3 gaming fund and decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), which he will continue to advise.
"As a lifelong gamer, I truly believe the game industry is going to be transformed by placing ownership in the hands of players. There are already massive vibrant markets around in-game items in games like Counter-Strike, and Web3 technology is the perfect solution to enable game asset ownership in a scalable and connected way across an enormous universe of games and player communities. Magic Eden is one of the largest Web3 platforms in the world with over 10 million unique user sessions per month and $2.5 billion in NFT trading volume to date. The team here really believes in the mission to bring digital property rights to gamers while creating incredible new opportunities for game developers. I'm excited to see the impact we will have in accelerating Web3 gaming," stated Chris Akhavan .
In July 2022 , Magic Eden launched a venture arm, Magic Eden Ventures, that focuses on investing in Web3 games and has helped incubate eight projects to date. Pay-to-win models and escalating game marketing costs have led to industry stagnation with the game industry set to decline year-over-year. With blockchain gaming, a better alignment between the game developer and gamer can exist, whereby the gamer becomes strongly interested in the game's long term success. This alignment can enable more transparent game economy design and community driven organic marketing. The company stands firm in the belief that blockchain games will be an on-ramp for millions of gamers to Web3 and an important growth opportunity for game studios. Magic Eden's existing Launchpad has delivered over 400 projects and will be leveraged to launch the most impactful Web3 games in the coming years.
The games-focused initiatives come on shortly after Magic Eden's announced integration into the Polygon network. The team plans to support game developers building on Polygon to onboard the next generation of gamers into the Web3 ecosystem and has already lined up a number of world-class developers to debut on its Polygon enabled Launchpad, including: BORA backed by major Korean developer Kakao Games, Block Games, IntellaX, Animoca-backed nWay, Boomland, Planet Mojo, and Taunt Battleworld.
Zhuoxun Yin, COO of Magic Eden , stated: "Chris is going to take us places. He's got that special sauce that only a few people in the world have, coming from traditional gaming while also being intimately familiar with blockchain technology through his experiences at Tapjoy, Glu, Electronic Arts, Forte, and Game7. We have been preparing to unleash the reach of our platform to the game ecosystem, and our vision to drive distribution and revenue to Web3 games can now really come to life with Chris' leadership and guidance. Our team and the broader Web3 game industry are lucky to have Chris here working on this."
Magic Eden is the leading cross-chain NFT platform driving the next billion users to Web3. Led by former crypto , tech, and hospitality leaders, Magic Eden is building a user-friendly platform powered by market-leading minting and trading solutions. Magic Eden brings dynamic cultural moments onto the blockchain, empowering users across thousands of digital communities to create, discover and collect unique NFTs.

Maxwell Planar Magnetic Headphones feature low latency wireless, an upgraded chassis and an 80-hour battery life
Audeze, the leading audio technology brand and pioneer of high-end gaming audio products, today announces Maxwell, a new ultra-low-latency wireless PC & console gaming headset with class-leading 80+ hours of battery life. Two versions of Maxwell will be available: Maxwell for Xbox & PC is officially licensed by Microsoft and includes the first auto-activating Dolby Atmos license, while Maxwell for Playstation & PC supports Tempest 3D Audio. Maxwell is the latest release from Audeze in a line of purpose-built gaming headsets like the LCD-GX and Mobius which have garnered rave reviews for their innovations in audio performance and headtracking.
Connect and game anywhere, without limitations. Maxwell provides ultra-low-latency, high-resolution audio up to 24-bit 96kHz when connected to the included USB dongle. Low-latency wireless range and stability are improved up to 3X from the award-winning Audeze Penrose headset.

In addition, Maxwell supports classic Bluetooth codecs like SBC, AAC and LDAC for high-quality portable audio. Maxwell also supports lossless high-resolution audio up to 24-bit 96kHz over wired USB.
Audeze brings its proprietary lag-free A.I. powered noise filtration to Maxwell for crystal-clear communication in any environment (this was pioneered with Audeze's FILTER Speakerphone – one of Time Magazine's Best Inventions of 2022). The hardware based A.I. system automatically eliminates background noise at the touch of a button, with no additional software or setup required. Friends and teammates will never miss your banter and call-outs thanks to five built-in microphones and a detachable boom mic (designed by our friends at Shure!).
Maxwell delivers studio-quality sound and lifelike, powerful dynamics with Audeze's latest planar magnetic drivers.

Maxwell's chassis, featuring a spring-steel headband with an adjustable suspension strap is built for greater comfort over long gaming sessions. The earcups feature a reinforced dual-chamber design for class-leading passive noise isolation.
Maxwell combines the best of both worlds for PCs and Consoles by adding support for features like Game-Chat mix, advanced gaming presets, personalized multi-band EQ etc. Maxwell also comes with Audeze HQ gaming app that gives users access to a wide range of customizable features.
Maxwell for Playstation will retail for $299 and Maxwell for Xbox will retail for $329 and comes with a Dolby Atmos license. Both versions support Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch. The first shipments are expected later in January.

Gamers have been through thick and thin with their old gaming rigs: online battles, quests and adventures. It seems wasteful to retire it to their grandmother's word processing and email (they know it's Christmas slippers she wants anyway). Don't give up on it there is much better use for that old warhorse, even without a video card.
Burning up that old rig on cryptomining is unlikely to cover the electric bill, however, add a network card or two and a Wi-Fi card and the practical possibilities open up. It has plenty of guts, more than enough to hold its own and then some against mainstream routers. That is how FreeBSD and Linux got going in the 90s, born out of frustration over exorbitant brand-name router prices and the need for something robust and affordable. People knew there was no magic in packet routing and filtering, turning to Unix to power their PCs into routers. That bare-knuckles enthusiasm of sticking it to the man changed everything. Now the man sponsors it – it is strictly business.
In a curious twist opensource migrated to mass produced routers. So, what is inside? Marketing hype, a parade of edgy moulded plastic cases and low performance general purpose CPUs with limited features, but dedicated, inexpensive switching fabric. The result? For fixed switching it looks impressive, but in terms of utility in network management, not so much. The same money for a x86 mini-PC with LAD achieves higher performance in switching and superior features. Why? About ten years ago x86's overall performance took a great leap to keep up with Windows' bloat.
Consider LAD , a complete, fully-featured network appliance in one software module, built from the foundation of fourth-gen commercial grade forensic-class packet capture appliances designed and built for years right here in Oregon . Featuring 100% capture up to 10Gbps and millions of packets per second sustained, with all the bells and whistles, the key was security and performance, without detracting from either. Today's LAD is much bigger, with integrated blackholing, full DNS management plus DNS-level firewalling, low-latency switching and lateral isolation of devices, so nothing can jump from one client to another. Automatic and real-time per-device and per-domain reporting down to single packets, gaming server uptime monitoring via ping and full packet capture help pinpoint connectivity issues, while seamless domain blacklisting delivers ad-free and tracking-free internet by timing-out ad server domains and cookies to boot. All with stable, low-latency network performance, minus the classic CLI.
LAD requires 4GB RAM, a SATA HDD and a compatible network card. Consider the i350-T4 with four ports. An AX210 brings Wi-Fi 6E triband wireless with full support for 2.4Ghz, 5Ghz and 6Ghz bands. LAD's pedigree in packet capture enables full wireless monitoring and capture, while simultaneously routing with 1/10,000,000 second accuracy.
Providing network mastery suits that old gaming rig and saves a buck or two. Skip wondering what the old router is doing or where the speed issues and dropped connections are originating. LAD cleans up connections without separate pi-hole, OpenDNS or whatnot. Integrated into the core, LAD's native LateralDNS introduces no latency – it is slick, easy-to-use and wirespeed. Installation is a snap: place the bootx64.efi on a USB stick, plug it in and reboot. Running LAD on that old rig delivers superior routing and switching performance, plus a host of network security and management features.
The downside: that gaming rig slurps the juice. But, since they already have it, it makes sense to run it for a year or two, then switch to a J4125 or N5105 mini-PC with four or six built-in i225 or i226 ports. LAD's support for them is great: stable and worry free. The great thing about the J4125 or N5105? Low-cost, multigigabit network performance with LAD and quiet fanless operation, consuming 10-15W.
About LAD. Short for LateralAccessDevice from IPCopper, Inc. Why lateral? Because it manages network flows laterally, as well as vertically. IPCopper has been in the business of network appliances for over a decade, making commercial appliances for business and government. We built something we are proud to use ourselves. Quality software is made by good engineers here at home. Check back for more practical, common-sense features – we're on a roll!
