Hi DeFiChain community!
Welcome to this week's roundup, where we shed light on the latest happenings and advancements within our thriving ecosystem. Let's dive right into the action!

Spotlighting the Pioneers of MetaChain

We're thrilled to introduce the DeFiChain Spotlight Program! This initiative is designed to highlight the innovative projects being developed on the upcoming MetaChain layer. Each project tells a unique story and contributes to the collective strength and potential of DeFiChain's growing community.

By participating, you’ll gain the chance to showcase your project to a wider audience, garner support from fellow community members, and enjoy exclusive perks. This initiative is about more than recognition — it’s about fostering collaboration, encouraging knowledge sharing, and building momentum for the MetaChain layer. Ready to put your project in the spotlight? Apply now.

MetaChain Beta 6 TestNet Release

We launched the Beta 6 version for Changi TestNet a few days ago. This latest version comes packed with comprehensive fixes and upgrades, addressing several community-reported issues. Our tireless team has been working around the clock to ensure that this update significantly improves your experience.

Moreover, we're also keeping an eye out for the much-anticipated DST20 support. Expect more news on this development soon!

On-Chain Voting Results

Our latest on-chain voting round came to a close last week at Block Height 3,120,000. The community has spoken, and although no new DFIPs were approved, the CFP for Ocean found favour in this round. This voting process underlines our commitment to community-led decisions and transparent governance.
