Hello, 
We are back with the Fetch.ai community newsletter for the two weeks commencing 26th February 2021. Get comfy, and be ready for a short but exciting edition!
Why not stay up to the minute by following us on Twitter and LinkedIn and join the conversation on Discord and Telegram

Highlights of the fortnight
Fetch.ai nabs $5M in institutional investment; Fireblocks to add support for FET Token
In conjunction with the new allocation of funds, Fireblocks will add support for FET tokens, ensuring safe network participation for enterprise and institutional stakeholders. The allocation of funds from GDA Group & affiliates into the Fetch ecosystem paired with FET’s integration onto the Fireblocks infrastructure platform, which currently supports 200 enterprise and institutional customers, points to institutional interest in the Fetch.ai ecosystem. The investment will be distributed over a period of time, decided upon by the aforementioned, and will come with additional funding from interested capital partners during 2021.

Tech releases
Agent Framework v0.11.0 is released!
We’re delighted to be releasing version 0.11.0 of the Fetch agent framework. This one is so big that we had to get a bigger box to put it in. But thanks to plugins, the box is bigger, but it’s lighter… read on for more!
The key headline features of this release are: skill-to-skill messaging, introduction of plug-ins and a Golang AEALite library. These are a big deal: it’s now possible to write native iOS and Android code that talks to your AEAs, making a whole range of privacy-preserving, learning mobile based agents that can represent you and your interests in the agent metaverse.

Our SOEF iOS App has been updated to v1.2
The Simple Open Economic Framework, or SOEF, is the latest version of Fetch.ai’s search and discovery system for agents. Agents can describe what they look like, and what they do and find, or be found, by other agents. They can search semantically and/or geographically, specifying the things that are important to them.
This update includes all-new icons for agent types and, as requested - you can now get to the agent detail page by tapping on an agent on the map!
Check out the app here.
Mainnet v2.0 is coming…very soon!
March 2021 is finally here and this is the month when we will launch our Mainnet v2.0! Are you excited? Because we are and do we have some amazing sneak peeks to share. A lot of you have been asking us regularly — “When Mainnet?” and the answer is 31.03.2021. Unless a giant asteroid shows up out of nowhere and is on course to decimate humanity or COVID-19 mutates anymore and turn us into zombies, we do not plan to delay our Mainnet v2.0 launch.
Check out the details and sneak peaks for the upcoming release here.
