This is the twelfth issue of the Token Valley dApp newsletter aiming to give updates on the latest news on decentralized applications (dApps) across various platforms (EOS, Ethereum, Tron, etc.). Let’s get right to it:
📺 dApp News
In an investor panel at the 2019 Asia Blockchain Summit last month, Hashed Co-Founder Alex Shin made a particularly interesting point regarding the differences between Asian and North American blockchain environments:
"The ethos is very different. You come to the Bay Area its often 'EOS & TRON aren't decentralized enough, RAWR', and you come to Asia, and that focus around censorship resistance isn't the first narrative.. When you talk to the major players and exchanges in Korea, they aren't really interested in consensus layers; they are interested in dApps. We want to list dApps. They are ahead, and when you go o the Bay Area, you don't see a lot of that going on at all. So the markets are very much diverging, and we will need different strategies for them."
Another cool thing we found this week is this Presentation on Blockchain Gaming by Wave Financial. It’s well worth a read, and is presented as a nice slideshow.

Basically, everything is down this week, following BTC as usual. There’s no need to over-complicate it. That’s life. Better luck next week :)
✨ Token Valley’s ‘Weekly Spotlight’
The Direct Path to DeFi
TL-DR: I want to give you a brief preview of a new product we’re launching called Tinlake, a platform built on decentralized financial infrastructure, that enables you to draw loans against conventional illiquid assets. This is done by issuing an ERC-20 token that represents a fraction of the collateral.
If you try this dApp, let us know your experiences!
