Covering Jan 7 - Jan 13 2019
Peak hype yet? Hard to say, all one can do is just try to catch them waves. 🌊🏄♀️
”When mainnet?” you ask? Well, https://itsalmo.st/grin-oclock. No matter where things go from here I feel privileged to have been able to contribute with the little I’ve could to the project, see it get to this stage, and learn a lot in the process. ”Is a launch ever really finished?”, I wondered in a group chat earlier today. I hope not. It’s been incredibly fun so far, and I wish it continues. Hats off to all the committers and contributors. Fingers crossed for a healthy Grin genesis tomorrow.
