Hello, welcome to issue #1 of the CKB Weekly, a newsletter about the Nervos Common Knowledge Base blockchain and related technology.
One twitter user recently asked “CKB is dropping but difficulty does not adjust, it's even increasing, there is something wrong…” Rest assured, there is no problem. In spite of recent price drops, the CKB hashrate and chain security do continue to steadily increase, due to recent ToddMiner C1 Pro shipments.
Last week, there was a scheduled unlock of 2.8 billion CKB at 1,000th epoch, which brought the total amount of circulating tokens to ~17 billion. Deposits in Nervos DAO kept growing to 5.3 billion, accounting for ~32% of the circulating supply.
Nervos DAO is a base layer implementation, which is different from MakerDAO or any DAO on Ethereum. It issues the blockchain’s native CKB coin to hodlers, who always remain in sole control of their CKB through the Nervos cell model.
Here are the latest:
CKB stored in the Nervos DAO can only be withdrawn at the end of a deposit period, about once every 30 days. This DCKB project aims to create a new token, a derivative of CKB deposited in the DAO, which provides the benefits of hodling in the DAO while also providing deposit liquidity.
Can we use cell model to control the ownership of ASIC miners? The type script can be used to create an independent cell with a unique type_script_hash character, and the hash can be burned in ASICs with OTP(One Time Programmable). Only the owner of the ASIC can hold and update the data of settings for mining and no one can change it. - Discussion(CN)

What people are saying
While there is intensive discussion in chatroom around marketing and “Nervos doesn't have enough meme/hype/awareness”, someone also pointed out:
“The project just needs integrations more than it needs hype. Defi builders with a long term interest in their assets need to prefer Nervos. I’d like to see us build Defi primitives with people who don’t want to rebuild finance with the same discretionary policies as central banks.”
