Many thanks for reading. We hope that you are as excited as we are with what the future holds for Blocknet. A decentralization project fundamentally requires an engaged community, and so if you would like to help with anything, have something to add, use your professional skills or have a problem, we want to know about it.

Please also be aware that a community project is run by a diverse group of people with varying time-constraints (in a number of time-zones) and personal lives, so remember to be kind and patient!

If you want to be the first see these updates, you can receive the newsletters directly to your email by subscribing . Our next update is due on November 30th. Until then we look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,

The Blocknet Team.
