Community Updates

The definition of community (erm, according to Google anyway) is…

‘the condition of sharing or having certain attitudes and interests in common’

In my experience, it goes far beyond that.

Throughout history, communities have played an intrinsic part in how humans come together to share ideas, collaborate and align themselves with each other to incorporate a common identity.

The newly unveiled Avalanche Hub has received an overwhelming response, thanks to our wonderful community. From running a validator node to creating a youtube video. From testing to creating a meme, our Avangers have reached all corners and explored the possibilities.

Recently Avalanche Hub launched a task for the Avangers to create GIFs and they are flooding with some of the wildest and most funny GIFs ever created. Our Avangers are very innovative with their ideas when it comes to involvement. Our Avangers are not just full of humour but also take steps to support a better society. Avalanche Enigma, a initiative by our Avanger @P0nay launched a contest for “Our Lady in Avalanche” to promote Women in Tech.

Remember with community comes friendship.

Here is a glimpse of some of the top picks from community:

Our Avanger @ETCMINER tested Avalanche node on Raspi 4 8GB , Ubuntu 20.04 , Windows 10 x64 , Windows 10 x64, wsl 2.0 ubuntu 20.04. All working successfully.
