This has been an eventful, exciting month (and, no spoilers, but the next one is looking to be even more exciting! See the hint dropped by Raullen at SmartCon!). September has brought us several steps closer to 20 million blocks, to W3bstream, and to unlocking a $12 trillion machine economy.
Let's take a look at all the new releases, interesting events, exciting announcements, innovative partnerships and amazing community activity this month has shown us.
IoTeX 1.9.0 Mainnet is coming soon, but, besides this long-awaited release, there've been a few others: website launches and product updates.
Have you seen this Developer Portal yet? It's an Academy, with guides provided by the IoTeX Foundation. It is also a place for all you, devs, to connect with each other and share your experiences. Sign up, create your profile and start networking, contributing, socializing and creating.
Visit the Developer Portal now!
Not a developer? We've got another portal for you - don't worry. This Delegate Portal is both for all wannabe Delegates who have always wanted to contribute but weren't sure how to start and for existing Delegates - improving your experience and making it easier than ever.

Your favorite wallet keeps getting better. As you know, ioPay is more than a wallet, now with more chains supported, more functions available, and more users like you exploring dApps, creating staking buckets and sending IOTX all over the place.
We have been sharing MachineFi with the world by participating in relevant events and explaining its enormous potential to revolutionize the machine economy. One of the rules we follow when taking part in an event is that each team member asks at least 3 people about their opinion on MachineFi and it disrupting the IoT space. We hope you'll employ this approach for your events as well! 🙂
Workshop w/ Google Cloud
Remember this photo? It was a big hit on Twitter among the IoTeX community!

The whole crypto community has been looking forward to September as it made history with the Ethereum Merge - which IoTeX fully supported.
IoTeX supported ETH Merge
Qevan Guo explained to Tech Times why IoTeX supported ETH Merge and how it benefits developers building MachineFi dApps.
ICBC & EAI BlockTEA 2022
Another announcement worth noting is that IoTeX’s Dr. Xinxin Fan became a committee member of ICBC & EAI BlockTEA 2022, two of the most important academic conferences in blockchain!
We are happy to see Fastblocks launch so that people in the community who want to become Delegates or interested projects can get an easy way to run and manage nodes, without having to do the upkeep by themselves. Read about Fastblocks in their tweet.
Ahoy is building a solution to decentralize the utilization, management, ownership, renting, docking, financing, and user experience of marine-based assets. It's aiming to use Pebble to track boating activities and get accurate weather data."Navigating new waters with blockchain" - says this article by CryptoDaily exploring this new Pebble use case.
IoTeX and Morpheus.Network
IoTeX has partnered up with Morpheus Network to revolutionize supply chain tracking!
IoTeX will bring a blockchain-based solution for increased value and transparency, and Morpheus.Network - a document-sharing system that reduces costs, required manpower, delivery time in international shipping. The Pebble tracker will be used to feed accurate, trusted, real-time data on the movements of physical goods across all points of the supply chain.

Amazing Community Activity
- This month, we've had 2 governance proposals: Mainnet Release and Burn-Drop Update, and both of them have passed!
- A great many of x-to-earn ideas generated by the amazing community (a blog post coming as promised!)
- MachineFi is getting more and more traction on Twitter, on a daily basis - keep tweeting that #MachineFi🤖
Each day in the IoT & blockchain space is a wonder of innovation, and September was full of new ideas and their real-world applications. Now, let's give it up for October, and, devs, this month is for you to start benefiting from W3bstream.
Yeah, we said it: October: W3bstreamonth!
