IOST Nodes Showcase | IOST Develops African Markets Alongside New Regional Node Partners

Dec 9, 2019 · 4 min read

To provide greater transparency to our community on the growth and development of the IOST ecosystem, the Foundation has added a new series of reports — IOST Nodes Showcase. This will complement the other two reports we give to our community — the IOST Bi-Weekly Report and the DApps Roundup.

The IOST Nodes Showcase shares about the progress and outstanding contributions of IOST Nodes. We will also introduce some of the latest elected nodes who have joined the IOST ecosystem to our community in this on-going series.

Please contact the IOST team if you are a Node and desire your contribution to be included in this report. Please take note that each volume of the IOST Nodes Showcase should only cover recent contributions.

(II) New Partner Nodes Showcase

I am a very passionate person that believes in the blockchain technology and the wonderful things that can be achieved. I have been in the crypto space since 2016 and I sufficiently understand how the industry works and what it has evolved into over these years. After reading the white paper I became a firm believer in what this project is trying to achieve and will work diligently to be part of its success. My organization is dedicated to the education of people and organizations about blockchain technology especially in Africa where I believe it is really needed.
