ConsenSys, launch of TURN
TURN is an industry-leading NFT representing services, such as Diligence’s smart contract auditing services. TURN allows customers to purchase an audit without waiting in a huge queue for 6-9 months. This is the first step to solve the audit bottleneck in our ecosystem. Each TURN is an ERC721 compatible token that represents 40 hours of time during which an audit can be issued. TURN tokens, which will be given directly to clients or sold during mining, can be traded secondarily between clients who need audit services, and therefore enable better price discovery of those service engagement and planning processes. Each of them represents a fraction of time for a smart listener of the contract and they allow free markets in its price.

A platform in beta mode of a messenger that allows users to send messages simply and quickly from wallet to wallet, powered by Log-in With Ethereum, it is multi-device. Blockscan Chat (built by Etherscan) runs on their servers and messages are not sent to any blockchain. There is also no guarantee that the recipient will see or respond to your message. To connect you need to identify yourself with one of its wallets, then it will ask you for an address of a wallet you want to exchange – this can be very practical before buying NFTs for example!
