Weekly Digest

ar.io announces migration to ao 💻

ar.io logo and text "ar.io on left, arrow pointing to the right towards the ao logo.

ar.io network are the team behind the biggest Arweave gateway nodes, which act as the “front door” to the Permaweb.

They also provide services such as ArNS, which map friendly names to Arweave transactions (like ENS).

ar.io services currently run as a smart contract on Arweave itself, however due to the complexity it’s hard to scale.

ao, being the hyper-parallel computer, aims to help with some of these scaling issues while keeping Arweave as the base layer for everything ar.io.

Create your own autonomous trading agent 🕵️

Autonomous Finance have just launched something super cool on ao.

This is a trading bot that anyone can use to set up their own portfolio strategies - e.g. automatically buying 10 $TRUNK every month.

This is just a blueprint, so much more complex strategies can be created, and there’s a lot in the works on this front. In the future we could see entire hedge funds operating onchain.

All of the code is open source too, so can be openly audited and updated by the community.

Start bounty hunting with Weavers raid II 🛠️

Screenshot of web page. Text on right reads "RAID BOUNTIES". Underneath reads "Technical and creative bounties wirth $10,000 USD are available!". Button underneath reads "RAID BOUNTY DETAILS".

Weavers are offering up to $10,000 in prizes for developer and creative bounties, focused on forking and rebranding Gather chat.
