Brown expresses admiration for the remarkable strides in open-source collaboration that this release reflects. This development signals exciting times and signifies a significant step forward for IOTA’s ongoing advancements in the blockchain space.

Bringing Cardano Tokenized Assets to IOTA’s BUILD.5

In a strategic collaboration, IOTA’s BUILD.5 association and @nmkr_io are forging a partnership to integrate Cardano Tokenized assets into the BUILD.5 enterprise platform. This synergy leverages the expertise of #NMKR in the realm of Cardano-based NFTs and asset tokenization.

The collaboration aims to empower enterprises with enhanced options for minting digital twins, signaling a significant expansion of capabilities within the blockchain space. Speaking on the development, Adam Kundrat, lead developer and creator of the BUILD.5 platform said:

“NMKR’s design philosophy and approach towards building through the current challenges faced in web3 were a perfect fit for us. Adding their NFT and tokenization features now gives our enterprise customers the additional ability to mint digital twins on Cardano and expands the reach and impact of both of our projects and the L1’s they support.”

BUILD.5, in collaboration with NMKR, a prominent developer specializing in Cardano-based NFT and asset tokenization products, is set to broaden its digital twin capabilities by extending support to the Cardano blockchain. This strategic alliance enhances the range of offerings for digital twin solutions within the blockchain ecosystem.

Building Transparent Value Chains and IOTA 2.0

During Zebra DevCon 2023, José Manuel Cantera of the IOTA Foundation provided insights into the transformative impact of the collaboration with Zebra on commerce, specifically through the implementation of digital product passports (DPPs). Cantera highlighted the role of IOTA’s scalability in driving this revolutionary change.

Cantera delved into the details of the partnership with Zebra, emphasizing the creation of DPPs that are rooted in trust and transparency within value chains. Serving as the senior ICT expert and consultant at the IOTA Foundation, Cantera plays a pivotal role in strategic technical leadership, with a focus on key initiatives such as the partnership with the European Commission under the EU Blockchain Services PCP.

In its latest report published last Thursday, the IOTA Foundation highlighted significant milestones, including the initiation of the IOTA 2.0 introduction campaign, the establishment of the first distributed ledger technology (DLT) foundation under the UAE authorities, and the introduction of ShimmerEVM.

Regarding wallet developments, the release of Firefly IOTA 2.0.0 in Q4 marked a noteworthy achievement as the community progressed toward the Firefly Wallet. This release played a crucial role in supporting the Mainnet Stardust upgrade and featured enhancements related to NFTs, native tokens, and various developer tools.
