TMinusOne, Token Allies, and USDM partner up to strengthen Cardano’s liquidity

Token allies and TM1 Pre-Sale

In a strategic move designed to supercharge liquidity within the Cardano ecosystem, TM1, Token Allies, and USDM have announced a groundbreaking partnership to leverage the unique strengths of each entity and create a more efficient experience for users interacting with Cardano's native assets.

All ADA purchases made during the Token Allies sale will be converted to USDM and held within the Token Allies treasury as USDM tokens. This integration streamlines the process for users and contributes to the overall liquidity of the Cardano ecosystem.

This week, TMinusOne and Token Allies also announced a limited-time sale of 300 discounted DVCs on the TM1 platform. Token Allies, the first Decentralized Venture Capital (DVC) on Cardano is at the forefront of a new era in VC investment. This partnership combines the principles of VCs with the advantages of decentralization.

DVCs offer a revolutionary way to invest in high-growth startups, breaking free from the limitations of traditional Venture Capital. As a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), Token Allies empowers investors themselves to make investment decisions, not a select few. Investors can also choose from diverse investment funds tailored to personal goals and collaborate on due diligence processes, ensuring informed investment choices. This partnership makes investing in startups more accessible and transparent for the Cardano community. Read More

World Mobile Partnership with Cuentas

  • Tailored Global Roaming: Localized networks will be developed to cater to specific customer needs, ensuring seamless global roaming experiences.

  • Integrated Mobile Solutions: The initiative will combine roaming services with mobile solutions, leveraging both eSIM and traditional SIM technologies for greater flexibility.

Cardano and World Mobile have historically shared the same vision of offering financial connectivity to unbanked and underbanked communities. This last announcement with Cuentas promises a continued commitment to bringing financial freedom and high-efficiency wireless data networks to diverse communities. Read More


NMKR and TIAMONDS introduce tokenized diamond ownership on the Cardano blockchain

TIAMONDS Diamond Ownership

NMKR, a leading NFT infrastructure provider on the Cardano blockchain, partnered with TIAMONDS, a tokenized diamond marketplace, to transition traditional diamond ownership into a Real World Asset.

The project is built on two key components: 

  1. TIAMONDS: the tokenized representations of diamonds, which represent the digital ownership over the real gem.

  2. TIA Token: a deflationary cryptocurrency and the universal utility token of the TIAMONDS platform.

While buying on the traditional diamond market involves a lot of paperwork and storing them can become complicated, tokenized diamonds offer the opportunity to trade anytime on an NFT marketplace, without the need for physical storage or form completion. Each NFT is fully insured by a real diamond, with a GIA certificate tied to each NFT. Read More

🎊 A Message from Lucas 🎊

Cardano LA

We reached so many milestones this week, and I am so happy to know that blockchain adoption keeps getting bigger in Argentina. I had the privilege to meet with J.J. Siler, Chief of Staff at Input Output Global (IOG), for the Latam Economic Forum on Thursday, where we were able to exchange words with Darío Epstein, event organizer and director of Research for Traders, along with fellow innovators, entrepreneurs, and government leaders. That same day, Cardano announced a partnership with the province of Entre Rios to advance blockchain technology in the region.

The Latin American Cardano Community has put in so much work in the past few years to grow the ecosystem in the region, especially here in Argentina. It was not until the last few months that everything began to move much more quickly, and I'm so proud of the landmarks we reached in the past week alone.

To finish things off, yesterday we hosted a pitching competition at the Cardano Latam Builders event we hosted at the National Technological University (UTN) in Buenos Aires. More than fifty proposals were submitted and all of them showed great commitment to blockchain implementation as a solution to real-life problems related to education, innovation, and financial services. I’m so excited to see what comes next.
