Another week has passed and we have summarized for you the most important events of the week.

Prof. Dr. B. Gültekin Çetiner, the founder of MarmaraChain (a Komodo Smart Chain project) was live on TV on Kanal34 that was sponsored by Komodo. The TV show was in Turkish, but the MarmaraChain team will work on a translation and will upload it on Youtube.

Komodo CTO Kadan Stadelmann spoke with Benjamin Pirus from Cointelegraph about the risks of trading on a mobile DEX.

"I don’t think that the risk to a mobile DEX is necessarily higher than that of a DEX accessed through another medium. The risk would vary depending on the user’s device, OS [operating system], version, etc.," says Kadan.

COMMUNITY & ECOSYSTEM UPDATE

It gives us great pleasure to see that students from the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) are developing projects for a university course with Komodo.

In 2018, Komodo established an educational relationship with the University of Texas at Arlington. In 2019 Komodo sponsored an educational hackathon in cooperation with HackUTA. The course, taught by Dr. Sajib Datta, a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and Strategic Advisor for Komodo Platform, attracted 34 students over two semesters.

Komodo continued with its Blockchain Fundamentals content series this week with one new interconnected article.
