January 17, 2020 — Erik Trautman
Welcome to our first Community Update of 2020. This is a weekly summary of our progress and community. As you might realise, we decided to change the structure of our community update. If you have any thoughts, please let us know what you think. Want something mentioned? Tweet us at @NEARProtocol or send us a message.
- Tune in to Ep. 32 of NEAR Protocol’s Whiteboard Series with @celoHQ to hear from Time Moreton
- Evgeny’s tweet thread explaining transactions in NEAR
- Have a read of Flux’ use case series. The best part? — They publish new ones every Friday
Our must watch
