Hi everyone! This was a super busy week at Parachute and partners. Buckle up, here we go:
Cryptodelphia won this week’s Parena to take home a cool share of the 200k PAR pot. The finale turned out to be a walkover since iCuddle was a clone account. Thanks for another shoutout Uptrennd! You guys rock. Gian’s been a trooper at PurpleCoin, keeping the group active through thick and thin. This week’s Saturday Rock Wars was to choose the best female vocalist. The house was super divided this time. Top spot went jointly to Ann Wilson, Angela Gossow, Tarja Turunen, Tina Turner, Alicia Keys, Florence Welch, Amy Lee, Whitney Houston and Pat Benatar. Whew!
That's what 138 lbs of chocolate looks like. But why? Ask Tony!
aXpire’s guerrilla marketing campaign was underway at the Consensus 2019 event in NY this week. Attendees were greeted to cheeky signboards placed across the premises. I’ll share some more pics from the campaign in the next update. AXPR is now listed on Blocktrade with ETH and BTC pairings. Woot! The weekly 10k AXPR burn went ahead as usual. Say hello to aXpire’s latest product, PayBX, in its introductory article. What does it do? It makes crypto, currency. Get it, get it? Winners of the KuCoin trading competition received their AXPR this week. And finally, Clinton joined aXpire as a Community Advisor. Congratulations buddy! Oh and did we mention that AXPR was also listed on SwitchDex? That’s 2 listings in 1 week! And a ton of new listings (list 1, 2, 3) and trading pairs on SwitchDex as well. Neat.
Make your move, Upwork

The initial results from Shuvro’s stablecoin fluctuation strategy on Cryzen Code Studio show that even though trade patterns are favourable, the fluctuations are too minute to pay off fees. Hence more study is needed for now. Congratulations to Brenton for winning the Battle of the Bots #1 competition. Way to go! Expect some cool XEN coming your way. Did you get a chance to catch a glimpse of the 2gether card in action? If not, here’s CF buying coffee with ETH. So cool! Abhinav released the latest WandX update this week.
