This is not financial advice.

During the last two weeks, Dragonchain announced its partnership with MetroEDGE to combine the power of edge computing and the scalability of blockchain. MetroEDGE is a data center operating company focused on building a national grid of state-of-the-art, high-performance, micro data center edge computing facilities in traditionally underserved urban/metro areas. Together, they will provide secure, high-speed computing and storage solutions in emerging communities across the USA. Also, Dragonchan Academy has partnered with NEO to build awareness for the importance of blockchain education and was collaborating across multiple events. The first was Blockchain Seattle meetup on February 13th, 2019 in which Sieng Van Tran was co-presenting with NEO staff. This was followed by Dragonchain Academy’s exhibit at NEO DevCon on February 16th–17th, 2019. Development is still in progress mostly in private repositories. Dragonchain community continues to grow. Despite the fact of growth in other social media, there is a slight decrease in the number of subscribers of Dragonchain Telegram channels and subreddits these weeks. And the last, but not the least — Dragonchain Academy’s first developer course and certification releasing tomorrow, on February 22th, 2019.

Development

GitHub metrics

Also there are private repositories (~100 private repositories on commercial github).

Dragonchain CEO Joe Roets in Official Telegram group:
Dragonchain, Inc. began in 2017 and has been developing the enterprise and scalable platform on multiple private and proprietary repositories.
We’ve stated from the beginning that we intend to make the open source codebase network compatible with the commercial platform. We expect to do that sometime in 2019, and will involve an update to the open source codebase.
