In times of fear in the market, we are very happy to be able to give creators the chance to be rewarded for their hard work”
— The Troller team
LONDON, KENT, UNITED KINGDOM, July 19, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — While most of the cryptocurrency market stares at the charts and prays for that much needed move to the up side, The Troller Art team are taking a different outlook on the crypto space at the moment.
The team have now deployed 4 new smart contracts & also deployed a “Game changing” decentralized application (Dapp) in which users can submit, mint and trade Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs) with the The Troller community. This marks the occasion of the NFT competition series which aims to locate the best artists within the space and work with them moving forward to create a function of support & co-operation, to help creators grow and thrive in the industry.
The competition is already live, with users flocking over to the space to partake in the festivities. The team have locked away 1 Bitcoin for the top winner of the event, as well as $10,000 for second place, and $5,000 for the entrant who finishes third. All remaining artists will still be able to monetize from their work via The Troller’s auction-style NFT museum. In addition, artists will be able to grow their unique fan base via the community voting process.
With the markets currently causing a lot of unrest, it’s great to see that opportunities are still out there for those looking to create & design artwork. With the winner receiving one bitcoin, it’s definitely one of the few “good news” stories around at the moment.
We spoke to the guys at Troller who had the below to say:
“The Troller has been trolling around the world with a successful path track last year. In the past weeks, the whole team have been working relentlessly, taking the time in crafting, developing & implementing quality control functions in order to produce the amazing NFT competition platform that we all have been waiting for and we are very happy to share the latest updates and goals with you.
4 New Smart Contracts has been created for the Competition features
All smart contracts have been tested with all functionalities
Most of the Competition UIX designs has been completed
All new smart contracts have been sent for audits
A smart contract allows DeFi to exist without compromising on authenticity and credibility. Smart contracts make adequate use of encryption on the Blockchain level.
THE TROLLER will never compromise security. The following features are what we ensure for the community while developing smart contracts for auditing:
To summarize, the team have been working incredibly hard and are now seeing the fruits of their labor which is the perfect way to prove their concept and move forward to have a very successful year with fun, profitability, and engaging series competitions.

Part of USDA's Healthy Meals Incentives, these sub-grants are designed to increase K-12 schools' procurement of local, higher-quality food items and scratch cooking
BOULDER, Colo., March 22, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Chef Ann Foundation (CAF) has signed a cooperative agreement with the USDA's Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) as part of the Healthy Meals Incentives Initiative. An allocation of $7.8 million is provided to CAF as part of The School Food System Transformation Challenge. These funds will be used to build a sub-grant program to incentivize innovative partnerships between school districts, food producers, suppliers, distributors, and community partners to strengthen the availability and access to nutritious food products in the K-12 school food.
"The pandemic shed light on the cracks in our food system, and school food teams have been burdened with supply chain issues. We need to help our schools and their regional food communities work together to empower local food production and distribution," said Mara Fleishman, CEO of Chef Ann Foundation.
In partnership with USDA FNS, CAF partnered with Gretchen Swanson Center for Nutrition, Kitchen Sync Strategies, and the National Farm to School Network. These partners will ensure that the sub-grants will increase the offering of healthier food products in the K-12 school food marketplace; leverage innovative partnerships between School Food Authorities (SFA) and key stakeholders in their local food systems; expand SFA procurement capacity at the local and regional levels; and increase market opportunities for local growers and producers. The sub-grants will be developed with an eye towards cultivating equity, nourishing students, fostering a resilient supply chain, and creating scalable and sustainable change for SFAs across the country.
"Procurement, in particular, remains one of the most complex processes within school food service departments. SFAs are required to navigate sourcing ingredients that fulfill the mission of serving fresh, local foods while working within limited budgets, under-resourced producers, and strained supply chains," says Elliott Smith, co-founder of Kitchen Sync Strategies.
In order to effectively meet current standards, in addition to upcoming changes that align with the USDA Dietary Guidelines, school districts must be equipped with the network and resources necessary to achieve such requirements. Realistically, no SFA or individual business is capable of accomplishing such a complex universal goal without multiple strategic partnerships with other organizations, businesses, and agencies in their food economy. The sub-grants support the development of the hard and soft infrastructures needed to successfully increase access to nutritious and appealing foods for kids.
"USDA is taking a holistic approach to supporting school meal programs, which includes strengthening the food supply chain that supports them," said Stacy Dean, deputy under secretary for Food, Nutrition, and Consumer Services. "We're hopeful that these grants will accelerate and expand innovation in the school food marketplace, so that schools - and ultimately our children - have better access to healthier food products."
These initiatives are part of the Biden-Harris Administration's National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. The National Strategy provides a roadmap of actions the federal government will take to end hunger and reduce diet-related diseases by 2030 - all while reducing disparities. The National Strategy was released in conjunction with the first White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health in over 50 years, hosted by President Biden in September 2022.
