Crypto.com Canis Major Upgrade Success
The “Crypto.org Chain Intergalactic Roadmap” has passed its first phase “Canis Major” successfully, the blog post added.
The upgrade, which rolled out on June 1, 2021 allowed for the integration of non-fungible token (NFT) capabilities. It enabled the minting, trading, and transfer of NFTs on the native Crypto.org Chain.
The upgrade also included Arm64 architecture support for Linux and macOS, and a consensus process adjustment.
The team also noted that the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) governance proposal for cross-chain implementations that passed at the beginning of May has been enabled on mainnet.
“With IBC, we look forward to unlocking more potential [with] cross-chain activities, bridging our chain with Ethereum protocols, as well as bringing more promising projects to the Crypto.org Chain ecosystem.”
A new version of the desktop wallet, v0.2.2, has been released with new features. These include data analytics, validator list view on re-delegation flow, and dependencies to secure versions.
The Crypto.org Chain has also been integrated with the Keplr wallet enabling staking, deposits, withdrawals, and transfers of CRO tokens to other IBC-enabled chains.
The blog post also mentioned the latest Croeseid testnet which has been launched for NFT testing purposes.
The team stated that the first major upgrade has been a success and it is now looking forward to the next phase. This will be called Draco II and include coin issuance capabilities and an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible chain.
Earlier this month Crypto.com announced a climate commitment to become carbon negative within 18 months.

Like most altcoins, CRO has fallen heavily during the market slump, but AltcoinBuzz still recommends it as one to watch for recovery.
CRO is currently 56% off its all-time high of $0.277 which was hit in late February 2021.
