Akash Volume 28

May 15, 2022

Welcome back, Akashians 💪 Today’s $AKT update covers product updates, new listings, and more feature highlights alongside Mainnet 3’s performance over the past two weeks.

On May 4th, Adam Wozney hosted Andrew Mello from Overclock Labs and Jonmichael Hands from Chia on Twitter Spaces to cover all the new features offered for Chia users now that Mainnet 3 is live.

Beyond the addition of Authorized Spend, Fractional uAKT, and the long-awaited Persistent Storage, Akash now supports increased container limits - further reducing the barrier-to-entry for new users with shorter plot creation times. For users with large-scale plotting farms, Akash providers will be able to support multi-gigabit storage.

The Chia x Akash update also reviews other plot creation features along with dynamic pricing and price points for plots. Tune in on Twitter below, or on Akash’s Youtube: Chia Plotting on Akash.

Akash also recently released their monthly recap for April as the first update after the official launch of Mainnet 3. The network’s blog post highlights $AKT’s new listings on Crypto.com and Kraken, Superfluid Staking on AKT/OSMO, and community events that took place last month.

Since their post, $AKT has now also been listed on KuCoin, Bitrue, and Huobi 🎉

Akashians can now earn 10% APR on Bitrue, and trade in the AKT/USDT pool on KuCoin. 🥳

In the latest Akash Weekly, Greg Osuri and Cheng Wang joined Adam to discuss trading with latest token listings on Crypto.com, Kraken, Bitrue, and more. $AKT’s multiple token and pool listings on major exchanges shows promising signs of market expansion and further Cosmos adoption.

The team also discusses Akash’s next steps ahead now that highly anticipated features like persistent storage offer hosting options for more users than ever before.
