Announcement #5: Trello Board (Coming Soon!)
We have received a lot of questions like:
- What coins are going to be integrated?
- When is X feature going to be implemented?
- When can I get my hands on the wallet?
- How do I suggest new features?
- How can I interact with the development team?
- How can I learn about what Ethos is doing?
Ethos uses a complex product management system internally to track progress of the Creative, Strategy and Development teams, but we will provide a simplified view that tracks 1:1 to what is going on internally for interested supporters. We value transparency, and this board will give the community unparalleled insight into the activities of the Ethos team as we work towards wide release, and beyond!
