Vechain Unofficial Community Developer Update — November — 2018
This is the first installment of what I hope to be a regular occurrence. As we enter the tail-end of 2018, the Vechain network has grown from it’s first block back in late August to a full-fledged ecosystem with ICOs, dApps, and massive aspirations. To reach it’s full potential, I believe that the network needs the help of a strong community constructing and improving upon the infrastructure the Vechain Foundation has provided. In order to assist with this vision, I intend to regularly keep the community up-to-date with recaps, news, and original content highlighting the efforts of the community. In this way, we can support our third-party developers reach a larger audience, and educate the readers, allowing them to get the most out of the VechainThor Network.
