Welcome to the Elastos South African Community! We are a group of enthusiasts who believe in the technology being built by Elastos. Our goal is to gather and invite more people into a vibrant and knowledgable community that helps to spread awareness and knowledge of the Elastos ecosystem and how it can help businesses and individuals manage their data, build usable dApps and create digital wealth online. We will do this through the scheduling of regular meetups with the support of the Elastos Foundation, where topics of interest can be discussed, updates shared and dApp developers can network and share their work. Please support us by inviting more people into this group that you know are invested or interested in dApp development on the blockchain. LATEST UPDATES: ***“We are inventing the future.

Was still cautious, so only bought a relative small amount, but hey, looking at the ath it will be worth it when the bulls come out again 😃

"I understand there is nasty words in the telegram groups about us, I was afraid there would be rotten tamatoes and shoes being thrown at me arriving at the hotel, fortunately non of that happened." "A couple of months ago we were all going to be rich, then reality kicked in and the whole market went bear." "I got a call 3 months ago from the 2nd ELA private investor (feng is the 1st) that the price of ELA was too high, the high price would have a bad influence on adoption of international investors" "I know about the manipulation on exchanges and have spoken with plenty of people in the industry, I got a couple of proposals from third parties to pump to price of ELA to higher levels, I rejected those proposals." "We want to make money out of this, but we will have to wait for a bull market." Feng making a comparison to Apple's grand vision; Elastos wants to change the internet. "Regarding NEO, in some areas we are becoming competitors, that is why G3 didnt happen. We did establish G2 (Bitmain partnership). I hope next bull market both NEO and ELA are in the top 3 in the industry." "200,000 ELA Wall street fund created." "A Wall Street research team that I asked to do a value benchmark on Elastos compared it to Apple and its 1 trillion usd marketcap in the future, after proper examination of our project. We are the Apple in blockchain projects for the future!

Awesome news and definitely the right direction. DA from Neo did the same kind of initiative with schools, to teach children about blockchain basics.

Blockchain brad is a star, so calm, collected and to the point

There are 2 projects I've been investigating and investing in to as well; 1) Hacken & PundiX 1- Hacken is a pure service project with an interesting token model. They are already operational and very proffitable and will be more so into the future. 2- PundiX are creating end user infrastructure (PoS devices and now a Blockchain phone) to push and drive adoption of #crypto in the market. Would love for PundiX to co-operate with Elastos! Would also be great when they move to their own blockchian some time next year to maybe do it on Elastos. How do we get these projects to talk to each other?

good videos on Elastos can be seen on Blue Collar Crypto's channel, Blockchain Brad, CryptoFuture and Chico Crypto

Important take for me from this...ElastOS is not "replacing" the current internet ...its blockchain is running on the Bitcoin blockchain (Ela is merged mined with BTC)Its rather a one-to-one comparison with Windows (Microsoft or Google as Operating Systems
