News around Nano never stops and this past week was no different. After the successful launch of the Solidus node update Nano founder Colin LeMahieu answered community questions in his ‘Ask Me Anything.’ We also shared some highlights from the Nano UK Meetup video and welcomed some service updates and exchanges to the ecosystem — let’s take a took.
Colin sits down for a Reddit ‘Ask me Anything’
A much-requested opportunity to ask Colin LeMahieu a range of burning questions was realized this week. Colin spent some time answering the community’s queries in a well-attended and received Reddit AMA. Over the course of a few hours, Colin covered exchanges, protocol updates and development, the future of Nano, and his views on cryptocurrency as a whole.
You can catch up on all of his answers and participate in the discussion right now on the Nano Sub-Reddit. For everyone who asked questions that were not answered, thank you for your submissions we hope you will re-submit your questions at the next opportunity.
A big thanks to Community Manager RockmSockmJesus, who coordinated the event and helped identify some of the more pertinent questions from the overwhelming amount of community submissions.
Nano UK Meetup Recap
After our first large UK meet-up in London last month we have been eagerly anticipating the chance to share some highlights with the broader community. We posted our overview video on our Youtube Channel this week
This video really captured the energy and enthusiasm from everyone at the event — we hope you enjoy it. And there are more videos from the event to be released in the coming weeks, so make sure you subscribe to our channel, and you won’t miss a thing.
Distributed proof of work
The Nano network relies on proof-of-work to sign its transactions, and despite being millions of times more efficient than some of the largest cryptocurrencies, it can still be a chore to generate. The Distributed Proof of Work service gives developers and services the option of requesting work directly from this service, saving time and resources, allowing more time to focus on development.
NanoCenter developers understand how vital DPoW is to the smooth running of some of the ecosystems most essential services. They have launched the newest version of the service this week, ensures full compatibility with the latest protocol developments. Dependent services can be confident their work generation will remain as fast as ever.
Nano was added to qTrade.io this week. A small US-based exchange that lists original development cryptocurrencies, and offers a NANO/BTC pair to its users.
