● On March 20, Feng Han, joint founder of Elastos attended the private sharing session launched by the Budao Community and made a keynote speech on “The Wealth of Nation Driven by Blockchain”.
According to Han Feng, wealth is not things. Instead, it is the global consensus. He reviewed the evolution from the market economy to the modern civilized economy and pointed out that the urgent task is to turn the big data into the global consensus on wealth. Elastos as the second generation of Internet provides the underlying technical support to turn the data into personal wealth and to arrive at new consensus on wealth.
● The COVID-19 is rampant globally. It is imperative to take strict prevention and control measures. The DMA team, the Elastos Ecosystem team, the LEO Community team, the MPF team and the eID supplier team worked together and launched GreenPass within less a week. This blockchain-based application logs the health information of its users and helps them identify those who are infected with the virus.
The DID side-chain and eID chain of Elastos are integrated in this application. All data is logged on the blockchain and correlates with individual ID, helping its users identify the ownership of data. Without the consent of the owners, the data would not be made available to other users. Moreover, GreenPass helps its users to keep their lifelong health data in the decentralized environment. In the long run, these data would be the digital assets of the users. After the pandemic, such data would be a part of the lifelong health information of the users, which contributes to social development and public health management.
02 Developers and Ecosystem
elastOS functions as a safe channel that runs codes and stores data and protects its network via the strong hash capacity of bitcoins via co-mining activities. Therefore, any codes that run directly on the blockchains are super safe, be it the codes that send ELA or the codes that run the smart contract of Ethereum or NEO on the Elastos sidechains.
Blueprint on Exploring elastOS: This paper analyzes the challenges faced with elastOS and its independent core role in the elastOS ecosystem and states that the developer team, particularly the Trinity Tech team is stepping up cooperation with external partners.
As both the flagship product and home of the Elastos ecosystem, elastOS is fast becoming Elastos’ foremost means to…news.elastos.org

03 Hot Suggestions and Proposals
We focus on three proposals, namely Proposal #169 on the rewards in February for the English community, Proposal #239 on the rewards in January for the Chinese community, and Proposal #248 on Ledger/Desktop wallet update.
1. Rewards in February for the English community
2. Rewards in January for the Chinese community
3. Ledger/Desktop wallet update
This Suggestion proposes to perform changes to the current Desktop Ledger companion wallet and build a new app for the Ledger nano X, as per the requirements of Ledger.
Ledger is one of the most widely used hardware wallets in the cryptocurrency space. Ledger support is also one of the most requested features from the community. The Elastos Ledger app for the Nano S and Blue versions and the companion wallet were built a long time ago and have been awaiting approval from Ledger. In the meantime, Ledger has released the New Nano X. After some delays, the app was approved — but only on Developer mode (for advanced users). Now, I request some changes to bring the wallet up-to-date with the following actions:
- Build a new app for the Ledger Nano X as per new requirements.
Make the companion wallet more user-friendly.
- The companion app is a useful tool for the community, as it can also be used as a desktop wallet to store ELA and support DPoS voting.
- Due to Ledger being an external company, there is no guarantee for review timelines or listings, but we will always exercise vigilance and follow up on all processes.
