Matrix AI Network announced a partnership with Bitgrit which will allow access to their database and data scientist community to promote Matrix applications and train Matrix's AI algorithms. Both companies are joining forces to build shared communities in China, Japan, and Southeast Asia.
Ripple along with ConsenSys, Cardano, and other players in the crypto scene co-founded the International Association for Trusted Blockchain Applications, INATBA for short. At first, we were amused: one more association to endlessly debate on the yet forming industry and brainwash the audience with common PR practices — what a move! Then, however, there was a hope that the initiative could actually feed the productive dialogue between the state on one side and businesses and developers on the other. We have no idea if that is going to work or not, taken dozens of associations like this already exist.
