Weekly news from Kusama&Polkadot #37
1. Totem KAPEX won the 20th auction on Polkadot
Totem KAPEX is the winner of the 20th parachain auction on Polkadot by raising 132k DOT in the crowdloan from only 852 contributors. Because it was the only project left in this batch of auctions, there was almost sure that it will get its own parachain slot.
Totem KAPEX is creating the world’s first peer-to-peer accounting consensus protocol. Totem is using the peer-2-peer connectivity and real-time consensus properties of blockchains to ensure that all parties to a transaction have their accounting records updated. That prevents fraud, corruption or manipulation. The main target market is the decentralized economy. As businesses employ less, and contract freelancers more, the accounting will be at the atomic level of our own Identities. There will be needed only a Totem Identity, and all the bookkeeping will be taken care of automatically, silently, and without an accountant in sight.
