"Over the past two weeks, we made a lot of substantial progress in the development of the CVM, cross-chain integration, DApp development environment, and full nodes ️. Meanwhile, a new miner, Radiance, was released by the community to support Cortex mining with only 8G VRAM ️. Cortex foundation leadership also met with advisor Prof. Whitfield Diffie to go over the next stage in the development plan for Cortex..."

Interesting point - while I don't want to offer investment advice, I want to say imagine a stable coin controlled by an decentralized AI, no one will be able to artificially manipulate its price and no one will have to deal with the uncertainties coming from currency fluctuations and political instability. Just saying - something possible with the Cortex chain
@Dave_murphy yeah sorry we have been following up very tightly with the exchanges, but still need to wait for their response and official announcement.
What does AI have to do with Blockchain? Find out
Very good question! They are a couple of blockchain projects that seek to help users keep ownership of their own data; however, this is not the focus of the Cortex project. We are more focused on actually executing trained AI algorithms on the blockchain.
As of right now, Bitforex and OKex are the only two exchanges that have completed CTXC token swaps for their users, meaning that the addresses on these exchanges are MainNet addresses. Warning: DO NOT try to send ERC20 CTXCs into a Cortex MainNet address nor send MainNet CTXCs into an ERC20 (Eth) address. If you don’t understand what this means, please reach out to us and we can help explain further. Our suggestions is that if you hold ERC20 CTXCs (bought before the MainNet launch), you carry out a token swap following this guide https://medium.com/cortexlabs/cortex-mainnet-token-swap-announcement-c06769c40663
