2023: A Year in Review for Calileo

As we bid farewell to 2023, it’s time to celebrate the remarkable journey of Calileo, our decentralised social media network crafted on the MultiversX blockchain. This year was a vibrant testimony to our team’s dedication, the unwavering support from our community, and the incredible potential unleashed when innovation and community engagement collide.

Milestones of Progress and Community Spirit

  • MultiversX Web3 Chess Arena – March: Our sponsorship of the Web3 Chess Arena was more than an event; it was a celebration of the community spirit, integral to Calileo’s ethos.
  • Ethos Collection Sold Out – April: The sell-out of our Ethos collection in April marked a milestone, solidifying the trust and support of our early backers.
  • Recognition in Hypergrowth Presentation – June: Our project caught the eye of MultiversX in June, earning us a spot in their Hypergrowth presentation, and bolstering our visibility and credibility in the blockchain space.
  • Calileo Alpha Launch – July: The Alpha launch to our Ethos holders was a leap towards realising our vision, marked by enthusiastic feedback and invaluable insights for future improvements.
  • Poker Night with xCards – August: Hosting the Poker Night was not just fun but a testament to the bonds within our community, a core element of our platform.
  • Brand Revamp – October: Our brand overhaul in October was a visual and strategic refresh, symbolising our readiness for the exciting times ahead.

Triumph at MultiversX xDay Hackathon and Beyond

  • MultiversX xDay Hackathon – October: Our presentation at the xDay Hackathon in Bucharest was a defining moment. Winning second place in the Infrastructure and Dev Tooling bounty track, we showcased our innovative data ownership solution, integrating Itheum’s Data NFT technology. This achievement was a significant leap forward in enhancing user privacy and platform interactivity.
  • Financial and Technical Support – November/December: Our success at the hackathon garnered the attention and support of the MultiversX Foundation. This recognition led to financial backing through a grant and valuable credits from AWS and Google Cloud, enhancing our infrastructure and accelerating our technological advancements.

Entity Finance Discussion and Itheum Accelerator Program

  • Entity Finance Discussion – December: Our engagement with Entity Finance in December was a platform to showcase Calileo’s future in social media and Web3. We emphasised our commitment to equitable creator rewards and innovative content moderation.
  • Itheum Accelerator Program – January 2024: The new year starts with an exciting development. Calileo’s selection for Itheum’s 5-week accelerator program in January 2024 marks a significant step towards our continuous evolution and collaborative growth.

Looking Ahead: 2024 and the Future of Social Media

As we step into 2024, Calileo is poised for groundbreaking achievements. Our focus is on enhancing the user experience, making blockchain interactions seamless, and welcoming even those new to Web3. With the upcoming beta and full launch, coupled with the $CAL token sale, we’re on the brink of revolutionising social media by adhering to the principles of decentralisation, community empowerment, and technological innovation.

The journey thus far has been exhilarating, and the path ahead is even more promising. We invite you to join us in this transformative venture as we redefine the essence of social media on the MultiversX blockchain. Let’s embark together on this exciting journey to craft a new narrative in online connectivity.
