Tezos, a pioneer of Proof of Stake blockchains, flourished in 2021 with exponential growth across community and transactions. Leading brands, developers, and creators are choosing Tezos because of its efficient design that prioritizes low gas fees, speed, and energy-efficiency. Last year was filled with technical partnerships with leading brands such as Formula 1 racing teams Red Bull Racing Honda, McLaren Racing, gaming behemoth Ubisoft, Rarible, rapidly-growing marketplaces such as Hic-Et-Nunc, OBJKT, Sweet.io, and music icons and artists. These activations led to a surging Tezos network in 2021 with a total of 35 million contract calls and more 60 million transactions — a sign of a healthy and growing platform scaling to meet user demand.
Encode is on a mission to help ambitious, talented people achieve their personal and professional goals together in web3 through organising high quality programmes such as hackathons, coding bootcamps, educational workshops and accelerators in partnership with the leading blockchain protocols. Participants in the Encode programmes have opened opportunities for employment through the dedicated recruitment arm and receive investment through the project investment fund.
Tezos is smart money, redefining what it means to hold and exchange value in a digitally connected world.
