Furthermore, MetaverseSociety, also dubbed MarX Project, plans to build a virtuous ecosystem that will allow direct connections between value generators and consumers on a non-fungible token (NFT)-powered decentralized finance (DeFi) platform.
Remarkably, MarX Project has already established a decentralized exchange platform that enhances swaps between MetaverseSociety tokens, with the project now offering unique tokens standards for digital assets and NFT issuers.
Chinese regulators publicly announced the official launch of its BSN in April 2021, with the Government-backed blockchain network comprising of a joint initiative between the National Information Center, China Mobile, China UnionPay, and the Red Date Technology.
Two months later, the project splintered into two major networks, BSN China and BSN International, with the Red Date Technology today heading the BSN International division.
In June 2021, Red Date Technology announced the successful completion of a $30 million fresh capital from a Series A equity funding round.
Prosperity7Ventures and Kinetics led the funding round that saw participation from other notable institutions, including Switzerland’s Bank Pictet and Thailand’s Bangkok Bank.
While commenting about the funding initiative at the time, Red Date Technology CEO Yifan stated:
“The Internet’s ‘golden age’ was only made possible when the cost of building websites was reduced to near zero. The BSN makes the cost of creating and running applications exceptionally low, with the added benefit of multi-frameworks and interoperability, and larger customer bases.”
