Happy Lunar New Year! Metaverse Monthly Report — January 2022
Happy Lunar New Year! Metaverse Monthly Report — January 2022 - First of all, Happy Lunar New year everyone! In the month of January, one of the challenges we ran into with building a brand new system was estimating how long the process would be. This makes it hard to predict a timeline, as things could take longer than expected. We know that our community is anticipating the new updates. However, we’re currently still making final decisions regarding the migration to New Frontiers and its implications. Also during this past month, the development of the Metaverse extension wallet for Google Chrome was focusing on adding the default support for multiple chains, starting with Ethereum. This will enable people to use the Metaverse Chrome extension for multiple of their favorite blockchains while using the same wallet. With the increasing number of the public chains, we want to enable users to hold multiple digital assets of different chains at the same time. If each digital asset of a public chain chooses a single-chain wallet for storage and circulation, it means that users need to hold multiple wallets. It is obviously very cumbersome for users to install and use multiple corresponding single-chain wallets at the same time, thus we’ve started the development of multi-chain wallets, to store and trade various digital assets. We also took this opportunity to add the New Frontier testnet to the default network, in ord...
Metaverse Monthly Report — August 2021
Metaverse Monthly Report — August 2021 - In the month of August, we’ve continued to work hard on the much anticipated new-frontiers upgrade. Last month, we were in the process of working on a protocol for executing migrations and improving testing environments by simulating the existing network with Kubernetes. However, as the upgrade is truly a novelty (which will prepare the network for a hybrid consensus) and has never been achieved before, we encountered some roadblocks that pushed us into different directions. Ultimately, we have finalized the plan to migrate from hyperspace by using the solution to replay EVM transactions from hyperspace and injecting them into new-frontiers: 1. Consensus: a) Disabled Aura and Grandpa finalization on new-frontier b) Replaced with manual-seal consensus 2. Transaction replay. a) The transaction history of the original chain is collected b) Perform the actual migration block by block, extrinsic by extrinsic, and then manually seal the block with a RPC call d) Copy the timestamp from hyperspace to new-frontiers We’re continuing to test transactions using docker to replicate a small network similar to Hyperspace. For more information, please refer to our GitHub: github.com Simultaneously, we have also started on the development of a wallet that will be used after the migration and hope to announce a beta version next month! For the next steps, we hope to complete the migration in ...
Metaverse Monthly Report — July 2021
Metaverse Monthly Report — July 2021 - In the month of July, the Metaverse core development team has focused its efforts on finalizing the updates to the Hyperspace chain, which is described in detail below. The current release of the chain is Hyperspace. It was deployed on March 10th, 2021, successfully running the EVM on Parity Substrate for its Ethereum compatible Metaverse Virtual Machine (MVM), on which smart contracts built using Solidity can be deployed. This has permitted the launch of DeFi and NFT platforms on Metaverse. As a result of evaluation and testing over the past month, it became clear that certain measures needed to be taken to ensure proper scalability as a major next step for the project is to reach consensus through a Proof of Work (PoW) + Proof of Stake (PoS) hybrid consensus algorithm which is, in theory, more demanding performance-wise. Hence, a migration to a leaner Parity Frontier EVM: New-Frontiers will fulfill the increased power needs of POW by increasing performance. Also, New-Frontiers already has its Ethash PoW branch and can produce blocks with an external miner. Over the past month, the Metaverse core development team has focused its efforts on finalizing the updates to the Hyperspace chain needed for the migration to New-frontiers. The team has also been working on a protocol for executing migrations and improving testing methodology by simulating the existing network with Kubernete...

Recap: Completed Test Run of Metaverse Hyperspace Mainnet Upgrade
Since our Hyperspace mainnet launch, we have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from the community along with enormous growth of the Metaverse ecosystem, partnering with Gene Finance and Stickers to launch their DApps on Metaverse. Earlier this month, we developed a plan to upgrade the Metaverse Hyperspace Mainnet and concurrently develop some of the fundamental tools that will allow users and developers to seamlessly interact with the Metaverse blockchain, such as the Metaverse Explorer. Last week, our core developers team completed a test run of the Mainnet Upgrade which includes, but is not limited to the following: Clean up pallets, Update clients, Storage migration, Substrate version upgrade from v2 to v3, We successfully completed the test run and discovered no prominent issues to proceed with the completion of the mainnet upgrade. Nevertheless, on behalf of our team at Metaverse, we would like to apologize for the extended slowdown of our chain, which was due to the resyncing of the nodes and caused a delay. As we proceed with actual mainnet upgrade, we will announce the date and time before the occurrence so everyone is well aware of the matter. *** Metaverse is an open-source public blockchain creating a decentralized ecosystem of digitized assets and identities.

|Bullish for Ripple (XRP)? New ETP to Debut in Europe in December
Investors stateside in both the cryptocurrency and traditional finance worlds are eagerly awaiting a Bitcoin ETF product in the U.S.
But those in Europe looking for an XRP exchange-traded product will have one next month.
Europe Gets an XRP ETP in December
DeFi Technologies, Inc. announced last week it will debut a new Ripple XRP ETP on a European exchange. The Canada-based Web 3.0 company will be ready to launch the product in early December.
It will offer the product through its subsidiary, Valour Inc. The blockchain company says the Ripple ETP will cater to the 'growing demand among European investors for diverse cryptocurrency exposure.'
A recent report says Valour currently offers a number of innovative blockchain products. That includes Ethereum Zero and Bitcoin Zero, two fully hedged Ether and Bitcoin ETPs, with zero management fees.
'The addition of the XRP ETP is part of Valour's broader strategy to provide investors with access to a range of digital assets in a regulated format,' the report added.
XRP Price Hangs in Balance of SEC Lawsuit
Ripple price is on the rebound after tumbling from $0.72 to $0.58 the second week in November. The cross-border blockchain network designed for institutional finance saw its XRP tokens rise by 12% in the past 30 days and 36% over the past six months.
The XRP investor community has been waiting on the edge of their seats for months for a resolution of a years-long SEC lawsuit. One XRP analyst recently predicted the Ripple token coul...

The XRP price may be gearing towards a bullish momentum with the potential release of multiple ETPs and the anticipated launch of Valour’s XRP ETP into the European markets next month.
Valour XRP ETP To Enter European Markets
Valour, a publicly traded company backed by DeFi Technologies, a crypto-based software organization, has announced a new XRP Exchange Traded Product (ETP). In a press release published on Wednesday, DeFi Technologies disclosed the launch of Valour’s XRP ETP in December 2023.
A popular YouTuber, Zack Rector has stated in a recent YouTube video that the token is positioned to take advantage of a large flow of liquidity driven by the initiation of multiple XRP ETPs.
Including Valour’s ETP, there have been many other ETPs launched by industry-leading crypto companies. 21 Shares, a Swiss financial institution, is one of the prominent companies that issued its XRP ETP (AXRP) in 2019. Since its launch, AXRP has recorded approximately $49 million in assets under its control and the ETP earns a year-to-date return of +69%.
Rector disclosed that the growing number of ETPs could trigger significant institutional inflows that could push the adoption of the token and possibly drive its price upwards. Furthermore, the integration of an XRP ETP has the potential to significantly advance the ecosystem by enhancing liquidity and improving accessibility for retail and institutional investors.

|21Shares' New ETP Provides Exposure to PoS Cryptocurrencies But No ETH
21Shares announced the launch of first-of-its-kind crypto staking index ETP focused on proof-of-stake-based coins.
Dubbed 21Shares Staking Basket Index ETP (STAKE), the product will essentially provide exposure to staking rewards while tracking the performance of underlying staked coins via a single ETP.
World's First Crypto Staking Index ETP
According to the official press release, the index will track ten crypto-assets, including Binance Coin (BNB), Cardano (ADA), Cosmos (ATOM), Polkadot (DOT), Solana (SOL), and Tezos (XTZ).
It is expected to address demands from both retail and institutional investors across the world.
Despite the fact that STAKE is designed to track PoS-based coins, the product, however, does not include Ethereum (ETH).
In a statement, the company further revealed that the index will rebalance in March and September on a semi-annual basis to demonstrate shifts in the crypto market.
It's parent firm, 21.co's Director of ETP Product, Arthur Krause highlighted the increased investor demand for 'diversified, crypto-native return streams,' especially amid the bear market. Staking, for one, was touted as one of the most attractive of them all.
He went on to add,
'In particular, we've heard demand for a reliable and safe way to access staking, one of the most attractive potential return streams available in the crypto ecosystem. The 21Shares Staking Basket Index ETP does just that, and will be an attractive addition to many portfolios.'

The Switzerland-based fintech company - 21Shares AG - unveiled a Bitcoin exchange-traded product on Nasdaq Dubai, making it the first physically-backed BTC ETP in the Middle East.
The firm has recently been on a listing spree, introducing Bitcoin and Ethereum ETNs on Nasdaq Stockholm, crypto ETPs on Euronext Paris and Amsterdam, and more.
The Latest Offering
The investment product issuer - 21Shares - expanded its global reach by launching a bitcoin exchange-traded product (ETP) on the international financial exchange in the Middle East - Nasdaq Dubai. The feature will trade under the same ticker as in Europe - ABTC.
Adding the United Arab Emirates ETP, 21Shares now has 46 listed crypto products in seven different nations.
Hany Rashwan - CEO and Co-Founder of 21Shares - praised the Middle East as an important area for the digital asset industry. He assured that the company will continue to support the region's ambitions to become a global cryptocurrency center.
Two months ago, 21Shares appointed Sherif El-Haddad as the head of the firm's Middle East division. The executive is a firm proponent of the crypto sector, saying it could become 'the asset of the future for investors and wealth managers around the world.'
The organization's expansion in that region could be beneficial since it is the fastest-growing cryptocurrency market (according to a Chainalysis research). Local consumers have received over $566 billion in digital assets from July 2021 to June 2022, 48% more than wh...
|CoinShares Unveils Staked Algorand ETP on Deutsche Boerse

|Bitcoin ETP Outflows Spell Bearish Sentiment Among Institutional Investo...
Bitcoin ETPs have become more popular than ever since the SEC approved multiple bitcoin ETPs in the fourth quarter of 2021. They had subsequently had a good run with hundreds of millions of dollars flowing into these ETPs. They provided a way for institutional investors and others who didn’t want any direct exposure to the digital asset to trade on it. However, it seems the wind is starting to change as outflows become the order of the day.
Outflows Rock Bitcoin ETPs
The market is still reeling from entering a new month but the effects of the month of April continue to linger. April sticking to form had recorded the highest monthly net outflows ever recorded in the history of Bitcoin ETPs. In total, there was a total of 14,327 BTC that flowed out of the market in this dreadful month. This, in turn, had caused the total asset under management (AUM) of the digital asset to decline drastically that by the end of the month, there were only 187,000 BTC in AUM.
It is obviously the worst month for the ETPs since they became a thing. The US and Canadian bitcoin ETPs were not spared of the onslaught either. In the US markets, a total of 3,312 BTC had flowed out of the ETFs, while their Canadian counterparts saw an even worse trend with 7,100 leaving BTC ETPs. This translated to a 10% decline in BTC AUM in the North American country.

|World's First ETP With Combined Bitcoin, Gold Exposure Launches on...
The first exchange-traded product (ETP) that combines Bitcoin (BTC) and gold exposure has been listed on Europe's 3rd biggest stock exchange - SIX.
The new product has been unveiled by Zug-based ETP issuer 21shares in partnership with investment adviser ByteTree Asset Management.
Best of Old and New World
According to the official post, the physically backed index product, known as 21Shares ByteTree BOLD ETP (ticker BOLD), is designed to track an index comprising Bitcoin and gold, which rebalances monthly as per the comparative volatility of the two assets.
The fund will rebalance on the basis of 360-day historical volatility. The asset with less volatility will achieve higher weightage in a bid to maximize risk-weighted returns.
Due to its lower volatility, gold has been assigned with a higher weighting of 81.5% at launch. Bitcoin, on the other hand, has an 18.5% share. Its objective is to 'deliver inflation protection by tracking an index that gives optimal risk-adjusted exposure to bitcoin and gold.' The announcement also read,
'Gold and bitcoin provide diversification to a balanced portfolio. BOLD offers investors a convenient way to invest in gold and bitcoin, in a structure that prudently manages risk. Rebalancing transactions are carried out within a tax-efficient structure.'
Charlie Erith, a chief investment officer of ByteTree Asset Management, said the idea is to make Bitcoin an acceptable asset to hold while bringing gold into the 21st century.

|XRP-Backed ETP Launches on Europe's Leading Exchange for Digital A...
ETC Group has announced the listing of its XRP-backed ETC on Deutsche Börse Xetra, Europe's leading exchange for digital assets. Interest in exchange-traded cryptocurrencies (ETC) has been growing as these provide investors with a safer and more liquid way to gain exposure to the underlying digital assets.
XRP will join the company's suite of institutional-grade crypto exchange-traded products (ETPs) including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana, Cardano, Polkadot, Litecoin, Avalanche, and Cosmos, Polygon, and Uniswap that trade on Xetra.
Bradley Duke, Founder of ETC Group, states the reason behind the choice of XRP: 'Ripple is rapidly becoming a leader in global payment systems with hundreds of financial institutions choosing Ripple to provide a better international payments experience for their customers, in real-time.'
As previously covered by U.Today, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse pointed out that despite the lengthy lawsuit, Ripple is currently battling with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, the company is enjoying 'record growth' outside the U.S.
The uptake of RippleNet's On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) service in the Asia Pacific (APAC) and Middle East (MENA) region continues to grow in response to increased demand for quick settlements and immediate access to funds. APAC reportedly is one of the fastest-growing regions for RippleNet, where transactions have risen 130% year-over-year.
