KuCoin x ThunderCore AMA Recap

Guest Introduction:

My name is Jerry Weng. I am the Marketing Director of ThunderCore. I have more than 10 years of experience in the Web2 companies.

The working experiences in Alibaba and Sony make me fully understand the Web2 business model, and why they have to move to Web3. Until now, I’ve been with the blockchain industry for 3 years.

I am a true believer in blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.

Also, I am thrilled to work together with our team and community to build the Web3 ecosystem.

Q&A from KuCoin

Jerry: ThunderCore is a powerful and ultra-fast layer-1 chain that delivers elite performance and cost-effective scalability for thousands of crypto projects.

Its superior proof-of-stake (PoS) architecture and strong development support provides a battle-tested home for the next generation of crypto builders, artists and dreamers to create in Web3, DeFi, NFT, GameFi and the metaverse with limitless scope.

The growing ThunderCore ecosystem is powered by its popular TT native asset, which can be stored in the feature-rich TT Wallet, together with other supported project assets.

ThunderCore’s breakthrough consensus protocol “PaLa” overcomes the scalability “trilemma”, helping the ThunderCore network generate up to 4,000 transactions per second (TPS) with 1-second confirmation times and ultra-low gas fees at a fraction of a cent.

Created in 2017 by Silicon Valley entrepreneur and tech genius Chris Wang to help solve Ethereum’s scalability issues, ThunderCore has an international user base that spans across more than 100 countries and measured over 500,000 monthly active users in December 2021, making it one of the most actively used chains in the world according to DappRadar.

Jerry: We’re extremely glad to announce our ecosystem’s native token, TT, is listed on KuCoin.

I believe it will bring a win-win situation for both of us because KuCoin is currently one of the top 5 crypto exchanges and ThunderCore is the top 10 blockchain with over 500,000 monthly active users!

Our Ethereum and BNB Smart Chain token versions of TT (ERC-20/BEP-20) will firstly be available on KuCoin, followed by the native ThunderCore mainnet token at the end of September.

Users can deposit TT (ERC-20 / BEP-20) and trade in the TT/USDT pair now! https://www.kucoin.com/zh-hans/trade/TT-USDT

In future, we are working on more tier-1 exchanges listing now, and will announce once ready. Please stay tuned to our official Telegram channel — https://t.me/thundercore_announcements

Jerry: We enable speeds of over 4,000 transactions per second (TPS), confirmation times under 1 second, and gas costs under a fraction of a cent, all of which aid the goals of scalability, decentralization and security.

Since 2019, ThunderCore has built a very vibrant ecosystem without any security issue, including multiple bridges, decentralized exchanges, stablecoin exchanges, oracle, NFT marketplace, multisig wallets, GameFi and credit market, etc.

Until now, ThunderCore has crossed a number of major milestones in 2022.

These include TT Wallet hitting well over 400,000 MAU, reaching international users in over 190 countries, achieving a block height over 97 million, getting to over 326 million total transactions, and entering DappRadar’s top 10 public blockchains in terms of user count.

Our launch of the Iris network upgrade for our mainnet has been another major accomplishment achieved as of late.

The new upgrade ensures that porting DApps from chains like Avalanche, Ethereum, Polygon, and BSC is easier than ever.

It also guarantees that our EVM-compatible blockchain is completely up to date in its interoperability with Ethereum’s Solidity programming language.

Our team believes that in the future, Web3 elements will be seamlessly integrated into the Web2 world, and we’re inspired about the possibilities of bringing decentralized elements over into the existing Web2 architecture.

In addition, we are very bullish on the prospects of mobile entertainment in Web3 as the technology is accessible to a vast user base, which led us to create our mobile SDK.

We are also building durable partnerships with NFT marketplaces as well as in the SocialFi, GameFi, and Metaverse spaces, with a particular interest in entertainment, since fun and games are likely the best way to onboard users from Web2, in particular from mobile apps focused on entertainment.

Jerry: ThunderCore has been an early believer and supporter of NFTs since the very beginning. Actually one of the reasons I founded ThunderCore was back in 2017, the popular NFT game cryptokitties clogged the Ethereum chain and pushed up the gas price. Back then we thought that congestion(i.e. High gas price) on Ethereum will be a serious problem, hence we decided to start ThunderCore.

I think that NFT is a really good use-case that demonstrates just how easy, cheap and fast it is to use the ThunderCore blockchain. For example, Most recently, @onlytruephotos’s integrity framework makes it a truly one-of-a-kind NFT marketplace. By getting listed on TT Wallet, its NFT sales increased by 30% in a mere 2 weeks.

Jerry: While many more people hear about NFT and Bitcoins nowadays, there is still not a lot of adoption, because it is hard to onboard users and developers.

Our existing API Tool for all developers provides an easy utility of TT wallet for all users. And it’s time for bringing convenience to Web2 developers.

ThunderGene is created to have a web2 API for developers who have little Web3 knowledge (e.g developers don’t need to know smart contracts or pay gas fee to be able to issue tokens or create NFTs).

We want to make it easier for the general public to learn and use Web3, and we believe the best way is through seamless integration with existing web2 mobile applications.

Imagine when you’re playing a game, you can earn in-game currencies and rare equipment. The game would create a wallet for the player to automatically store the in-game currency as token and rare equipment as NFTs.

Players do not need to learn about Web3 at all initially, players can learn about it when they want to trade NFT equipment or cash out as well as they can all be utilized in the ThunderCore Ecosystem and enlarge much more user base for quick adoption. ThunderGene API tool will be released soon later in 2022.

Jerry: Since 2021, ThunderCore has been focusing on the construction of applications in the ecosystem and encouraging both developers and users to experience DApps on ThunderCore Blockchain.

We have made efforts to improve cross-chain integration services, completing the cross-chain integration of Ethereum, BNB Smart Chain, and Huobi ECO Chain; exerting the power of blockchain as an asset to provide users with more opportunities to benefit in the fields of GameFi, NFT, financial derivatives, etc.; assisting developers to make various innovations in product models, and creating a variety of innovative and popular products.

Despite the bear market, 2022 continues to be a breakout year for ThunderCore, in which we rebranded and pivoted to focus on Web3 development by bringing new users in through entertainment.

Bear or bull, we continue to build and invest in the most promising projects set to shape this incredible new decentralized Web, such as Multichain, XY Finance and RE:DREAMER, etc.

We have no plans of slowing down and in fact, we’re anticipating many more significant developments before the calendar turns to 2023.

Questions from Twitter Activity

We have big plans for the rest of 2022, and with our Iris Fork, full-EVM-compatibility, ThunderCore Launchpad, and $10 million Developer Growth program, we’ve made it even easier for developers to develop in or port their DApps to the growing ThunderCore ecosystem, where they will find a blockchain that is ready to break into the absolute top tier of crypto projects over the next phase of our growth.

Jerry: Right now, as crypto goes into another bear market, many are looking at the period of reduced speculative activity as one for imagining and constructing the next stage of Web3.

Despite the bear market, 2022 continues to be a breakout year for ThunderCore, in which we rebranded and pivoted to focus on Web3 development by bringing new users in through entertainment.

Jerry: We believe there will be mass adoption of Web3 technology by seamlessly integrating Web3 elements (such as NFTs and bitcoin) into the Web2 world. We also believe user experience is the key to adoption.

ThunderCore provides the ThunderGene API tool (https://www.thundercore.com/thundergene/ ) for Web2 developers so no smart contract experience and no gas fee are needed to integrate Web3 elements.

We also provide mobile API so Web2 users can experience blockchain technology without complicated KYC, wallet creation, and gas fee. Users can learn later after they decide to delve into the nitty-gritty of Web3.
