Pangaea Updates

Since the launch of Phase-2, we have discovered network inefficiencies. We will release a full report on the impact of Pangaea, probably after things settle a little bit. While we’re discovering issues and fixing them, we could not give you a great experience of running a Pangaea node. We know that many of you were eager to learn and run a Pangaea node, and the network simply did not allow that. That is why we will have a lighter approach in the next week. Instead of a competition, Pangaeans’ task will be to identify and submit issues and get rewarded with a bounty program. We will share details of these rewards in the next hours. In the meantime, Pangaea network will be restarted with the new fixes tomorrow on September 25th, 2019. But more details on when and how will be provided by the ambassadors in the Pangaea focused groups.
