KuCoin Labs
KuCoin Labs, the investment and incubation arm of the KuCoin ecosystem, has officially announced its proceeding incubation programme with Univers Network, a metaverse infrastructure project designed to empower communities and revolutionize Web-3.

As an independent metaverse project designing infrastructure tools to enable interoperability across virtual worlds, Univers Network has over 50+ developers from its team based in Paris, France, working in both blockchain and game engines to develop an SDK that will allow for metaverse interconnectivity.

The Univers Network is developing a proprietary mechanism called 'Choose-to-Earn', which will connect developers and users while creating value for the user bases of both projects involved. Its Decentralized Publishing Company (DPC) will be launched later this year, with additional projects and development studios to be involved in their ecosystem.

Another main focus for the Univers Network in 2022 will be the unification of game engines, bringing E-Sports to the blockchain, with the goal of redefining the way humans interact with virtual worlds.

"KuCoin Labs aims to enhance Web-2 entrepreneurs' understanding and adoption of Web-3. KuCoin Labs is advising Univers Network in various aspects, sharing knowledge regarding Web-3 community incentives, technical structures, business strategy, marketing orientations, fundraising, as well as go-to-market plans, etc.”

Lou YU, Head of KuCoin Labs

In the future, KuCoin Labs will explore potential and diversified collaborations with Univers Network, which will grant it the scalability and resources required to be the leading innovative and metaverse infrastructure solution.

Render Introduces Monorepo Feature to Make Developers More Productive and Spend Less Time Managing Code and Infrastructure

Render | August 17, 2022

Render today announced a new monorepository feature that enables its customers to keep all of their code in one super repository instead of managing multiple smaller repositories. This feature is one of dozens that the company has unveiled this year to simplify the developer experience for hosting, managing and scaling cloud apps and infrastructure. “We accelerated the introduction of monorepos because of significant customer demand. “Many of them prefer the monorepo approach because it gives them a shared code base with clear dependencies. Monorepos can reduce complexity and enable teams to move faster and with more confidence in their systems.” Anurag Goel, founder and CEO of Render Interest in monorepos has grown significantly over the past decade since Google adopted the novel approach to managing their code bases across major application platforms. More recently, smaller organizations and dev teams have adopted monorepos as a hedge against the growing complexities related to ES6, SCSS preprocessors, task managers, npm, and CI/CD just to name a few. Render’s monorepo capabilities include: Intuitive build filters. Developers can define precisely which files and directories Render should (or should not) watch for changes using intuitive build filters. This makes it much easier for them to have a complex monorepo setup with faster builds and deployments for every service on Render. Base directory. If developers use this feature, they can easily mix and match code dependencies and have multiple versions of the same dependency in different directories. Automated code and admin functions. This enables developers to build, change, and deploy from their monorepo faster. Polyrepo compatibility. Render’s intuitive build filters and ‘base’ directory features are compatible with polyrepo setups, and help developers control their builds and deploys even in single repo situations. “Render's newly introduced monorepo support was what led me to Render,” said Stephen Haney, Founder of Modulz. “Almost every project I work on is a monorepo, and part of the reason I use Render is so that I don't have to run CI/CD or manage certificates. Getting Render's Build Filters set up was easy with helpful examples and documentation. Without flexible monorepo support, I'd have to spend a lot more time on CI/CD.” Early access to monorepos is available now for active Render customers. They can opt into the feature by visiting the Account/Team Settings Page and scrolling down to the Early Access section. About Render Render is a unified cloud services platform for engineering teams who want to focus on bringing ideas to market sooner instead of managing undifferentiated infrastructure. Render customers can easily build and scale apps and websites on the industry’s most modern developer platform with a global CDN, DDoS protection, private networks, autodeploys from Git and free TLS certificates. As the #1 alternative to platform as a service vendors, Render costs up to 80% less than Heroku and is remarkably easier to use. The company is a 2019 TechCrunch Startup Battlefield winner and is privately held by investors including General Catalyst and Y Combinator.
