This month’s wrap-up is a busy one so let’s dive right in.
We crossed more than 150 dApps deployed on the ZetaChain testnet. October was the biggest cohort of new Zeta Apps joining the ecosystem to date. They include the following:
3S Wallet, wallet
Absolute Wallet, wallet
Aceswap, decentralized exchange
Ball Exchange, decentralized exchange
Bandit Network, NFT aggregator
Block Wallet, wallet
BonusBlock, Web3 engagement protocol
Carbon Browser, Web3 browser
ChainHash, cross-chain analytics
DappLooker, web analytics
DATS Project, vulnerability scanning and cybersecurity solutions
Glass Wallet, wallet
MailZero, decentralized messaging
MixedRarity, NFT marketplace
NFTFeed, NFT liquidity
Owlto, cross-rollup bridge
Ruby Protocol, MPC Wallet
Sleek Wallet, wallet
Stake N’ Bake, GameFi
StarkSport, NFT marketplace
XOX Labs, DeFi app
XRender, AI art and NFT design
ZetaFi, gamified DeFi
October was big on integrations, particularly around wallets:
We added support for Magic, which makes user onboarding and wallet management simple, in line with our focus on supporting all blockchains from one place
We also integrated Ruby Protocol’s MPC wallet
Web3 messaging protocol Ylide integrated ZetaChain to enable users to message each other via their wallets on testnet
MailZero, a Web3 email platform, added support for ZetaChain to allow users to mint Omnistamp natively on ZetaChain
Our BTC hackathon finished last month and Nominids, a project that allows NFT trading with native Bitcoin, won the event with its clever addition of Bitcoin to its NFT marketplace. By integrating ZetaChain, Hominids allows users to pay and sell NFTs using Bitcoin natively.
OKX Wallet and Cryptopedia
OKX Wallet integrated ZetaChain, and we became the first ever testnet campaign on Cryptopedia. The learn-to-earn program leyts users interact with Zeta Apps right from the mobile OKX wallet.
In the first week we engaged over 50,000 participants. The campaign features an initial five dApps and offers a $100,000 ZETA reward pool so do check it out if you haven’t yet!
We like to keep crypto fun and interesting. In that spirit we held a sneaker giveaway alongside real world asset marketplace Bounce Finance to celebrate its integration with ZetaChain.

Zeta Sticker Contest
In tradition with our creative Discord contests, we launched a sticker competition to spice up our Telegram. The submissions are really inspiring. We will announce winners in the next week!
Marketing and PR activity
Our event calendar was overflowing once again in October, following a very busy and successful September.
The month began with Cosmoverse in Istanbul, Turkey, between 2–4 October where ZetaChain was the exclusive sponsor of the opening party and heavily involved in the event. Denis Fadeev, ZetaChain’s Head of Developer Experience, took part in panel discussions with important projects such as Thorchain and Cronos, addressing blockchain and interoperability challenges.
ETH Hong Kong
Denis was also in action in Hong Kong where we hosted a panel at ETH Hong Kong with notable Ethereum ecosystem projects like Chainlink and ETHStorage as we continue to put ZetaChain on the main stage at the biggest web3 events
We were also honored to kick off the show, and co-sponsor the opening party with ETH Hong Kong:
ZetaChain San Francisco Meetup
We closed out October with a meetup in San Francisco focused around the theme: “Unblocking The Chains”. This aligns well with ZetaChain’s mission to make the world of Web3 more accessible.
The event featured panelists from companies including OKX, xlabs, Light Speed Ventures, Chainlink, Nomad Capital and more.
ZetaChain on Social Media
In addition to real-world events, we were pleased to see virality on social media. ZetaChain was a trending topic on X following our announcement with OKX.
Last month, we saw article coverage in media outlets including:
Four Pillars: ZetaChain uilding The Omnichain Thesis
BlockBeats: An interview with Brandon Truong, core contributor at ZetaChain [in Mandarin]
Chain Patrol: Case Studies in Web3 Brand Protection
We are actively expanding our contributor program for technical writing and developer Q&A, local live event management, AMA representation, and beyond! If this excites you, then apply here
A Look forward to November
ZetaChain is headed to DevConnect where we’ll be speaking with other L1 blockchains on the main stage at ETHGlobal Pragma and many other ZetaChain side events. Check out the new ZetaChain Events Calendar, and get signed up here:
