IoTeX Project Updates #14 — April 18 to May 21, 2019

Greetings everyone! We are back with our Project Update Report №14 for 04/18–05/21 period. In the last month, we have successfully launched the Mainnet Alpha and fairly quickly met our security and stability benchmarks. We have onboarded new partners and Delegates, expended the number of Consensus Delegates, attended industry related events and the long awaited Consensus 2019.

We have prepared this blog in order to do a recap of our recent achievements to share with our beloved community.

IoTeX Mainnet Alpha Release!

Mainnet Alpha serves as the origin for the Internet of Trusted Things, which enables all physical and virtual things — humans, machines, businesses, dApps — to exchange information and value at a global scale. It provides a robust foundation for developers to create next-gen dApps. Look forward to more in-house innovations for data privacy, trusted computing, and IoT from IoTeX to foster the new decentralized economy!

We are proud to have all of you as Genesis Voters & Delegates — let’s continue the great work and build the future of IoTeX together! 💙
