University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Transdisciplinary School partners with the University of Arizona to take transdisciplinary learning to new international heights




A new partnership between the UTS Transdisciplinary School (TD School) and the University of Arizona (UA) in the USA will see the award-winning UTS Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation delivered at UA, opening exciting new opportunities for students and staff at both universities.

SYDNEY, Australia, Aug. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The world-first, award-winning UTS Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation (BCII) sees undergraduate students from across 26 different disciplines come together to collaborate and work with industry partners on real-world briefs to solve complex problems, start businesses, and get ready for a future where they will have, on average, seventeen different employers across five different careers[1].

It’s not surprising, then, that the University of Arizona W.A. Franke Honors College is enthusiastic to equip their students with similar skills for success, with the BCII degree now available to UA students.

Students of the BCII are introduced to unique ways of thinking, learning, collaborating, and problem-solving, which founding Course Director, Professor Bem Le Hunte describes as “future-proofing” their careers. These skills are highly sought after in today’s employment marketplace, often skyrocketing graduates of the BCII to success in a range of industries.

UTS has a longstanding connection with UA; the latter is an established Key Technology Partner (KTP), with both institutions working together on a broad range of collaborations. But this is the first time a degree conceptualised and developed by UTS will delivered in the US in partnership with a local university, and Professor Martin Tomitsch, Head of TD School, is excited about the possibilities such a partnership will create.

“The TD School and the W.A. Franke Honors College, which is the home for the BCII at UA, have a lot in common,” Professor Tomitsch says. “They both engage in research and transformative programs that are driven by creativity and a commitment to impact.”

A unique combined degree, the BCII has seen exponential growth since its inception at UTS in 2014. Professor Le Hunte describes the program as follows: “The BCII has become something of a distinctive, homegrown capability of UTS,” she says.  “It has really served to put UTS on a global stage in terms of its transdisciplinary curriculum delivery and research, and with more than 800 industry partners on board we’ve also developed a deep understanding of work integrated learning for the innovation economy.”

“We want to create the same passion and contagion – the same secret sauce at the University of Arizona that we have here in Sydney. I think I speak for every staff member at TD School when I say that’s our main agenda – to create more impact and transformation in the lives of students globally.”

The pioneering BCII cohort at UA Franke Honors will begin their first subject of the course during their upcoming Summer School, beginning in August. The first few sessions of teaching will be delivered by UTS’ TD School staff, but Professor Le Hunte is excited to equip UA staff with the skills to not only teach their students but simultaneously contribute to further collaboration and growth of the unique transdisciplinary pedagogy on an international scale.

And this partnership will see benefits for both UA and UTS students and staff across the board, from student exchanges to creative industry collaborations on an international level. With this partnership, the Franke Honors College will distinguish itself as the top destination for the best student scholars who want to benefit from the learning experiences BCII at UA Franke will offer.

“It’s wonderful to be able to extend the BCII program overseas and to work with such brilliant collaborators at the University of Arizona to expand our network and multiply possibilities for students all over the world,” UTS Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Andrew Parfitt says. “We know that innovation is not bound to one single country or continent: it’s a global concern. And so, creating global citizens is an important part of our remit.”

Professor Le Hunte agrees. “We know that this course changes students’ lives,” she says, “And we need to change students’ lives faster in order to change the world they’re living in quicker, and for the better.”

The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is one of Australia’s leading universities of technology. It is known for fusing innovation, creativity, technology and industry in its teaching and research. UTS has a total enrolment of over 40,000 students and is among the top 100 universities in the world. Find out more about transdisciplinary innovation on the UTS website.

Webb Unveils Tangle Network Testnet, Pioneering the Future of Private, Decentralized Applications



NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Webb announced the launch of its much-anticipated Tangle Network Testnet, setting the stage for a new era of private and decentralized applications.

About Webb

Led by founder Drew Stone, Webb is the premier cross-chain zero-knowledge messaging layer, committed to revolutionizing blockchain privacy. Backed by industry giants like Polychain, Lemniscap, and Commonwealth Labs, Webb introduces a suite of tools aimed at advancing zero-knowledge (ZK) and multi-party computation (MPC) applications across multiple blockchains.

The Challenge and Our Solution

Blockchain networks today face significant hurdles: limited interoperability, scaling difficulties, centralized control, and privacy concerns. Webb’s Tangle Network, built on the powerful Substrate framework, is designed to tackle these challenges by offering a next-generation blockchain platform.

Why Tangle Network?

Our vision is to make it easier for developers to create secure, private zero-knowledge (ZK) and multi-party computation (MPC)-based decentralized applications. Tangle Network simplifies:

  • Proof Generation: Delegate computational tasks to our validators.
  • Trusted Setups: Tangle Network manages complex ceremonies for you.
  • Secure Signing: Utilize our threshold signing for cross-chain operations.

By removing these barriers, we massively improve the time to launch for ZK and MPC-based decentralized applications.

Noteworthy Features

  • Unparalleled speed, security, and scalability via Substrate.
  • Decentralized control through Distributed Key Generation (DKG).
  • Advanced protocols for zero-knowledge applications.
  • Cross-chain compatibility with IBC and XCM.
  • Easy migration of existing apps through Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) support.
  • Smooth, forkless upgrades.

What’s Next?

The Testnet launch kicks off with an in-depth whitepaper, followed by a series of engagement events during the testnet phase. Our mainnet is scheduled for a Q1/Q2 2024 launch, featuring hackathons, workshops, and a targeted grant program to accelerate the adoption of privacy-focused applications.

ChainUp Celebrates 6th Anniversary, Charting Blockchain Innovations beyond Digital Assets



SINGAPORE, Sept. 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — ChainUp, a Singapore-based trailblazer and global leader in the blockchain industry, marked its sixth anniversary celebration with more than 500 business partners at Ce La Vi Singapore. During the celebration, ChainUp Founder and CEO, Sailor Zhong reflected on the journey, “Six years in the blockchain industry showcases our resilience, innovation, and forward-looking approach. As we look to the future, we are committed to shaping a digital asset environment that is reliable, transparent, and unparalleled. ChainUp aims to champion blockchain solutions beyond the applications of digital assets and bridge the gap between digital asset markets and traditional finance (TradFi) to increase effectiveness and market efficiency.”

The DEX Renaissance
As decentralized finance (DeFi) comes into prominence and focused on returning control to users, one of the sectors impacted by DeFi are the exchanges where cryptocurrencies are traded. Data from CoinMarketCap reveals that trading volumes on Decentralized exchanges (DEX) reached $1.2 trillion in 2022, indicating a 340% YoY growth. However, factors such as poor user experience impeded the rate of adoption of DEX. Recognizing this trend, ChainUp has updated its white-labeled DEX solution, incorporating advanced features, strengthening its security, improving its liquidity and aims to provide a decentralized trading experience that is on par with commonly-used centralized exchanges (CEX).

Bridging TradFi and Digital Assets Market
The traditional financial sector has been progressing very cautiously on digital assets. As more institutions lean into RWA tokenization, they unlock unparalleled liquidity in a borderless trading environment. Amidst this evolution, ChainUp’s RWA solutions emerge as an industry pioneer, offering robust tokenization protocols, seamless integration, and enhanced security, bridging the gap between TradFi and the digital future with unmatched finesse.

Minimizing Risk and Maximizing Security
ChainUp’s MPC Wallet revolutionizes crypto security by integrating MPC technology with advanced hardware isolation, ensuring utmost safety and encryption on data. The wallet offers dynamic key-refreshing mechanisms, chain-agnostic compatibility, and eliminates single-point vulnerabilities. With efficient multi-address management and 24/7 expert support, users enjoy full asset control, scalability, and cost-efficiency, all under one roof.

Compliance: The Guiding Principle
Navigating global regulations in the blockchain sector can be complex. ChainUp’s KYT subsidiary, Trustformer, offers peace of mind for enterprises tackling compliance-related challenges.  ChainUp’s advanced solutions in Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-Terrorist Financing (CFT) show their commitment to a more secure blockchain environment.
