#58: Six months of Mainnet 🎂

Covering Jul 15-21 2019


  • At block #262,080, Grin successfully hard forked successful. Congratulations to the community for pulling off what was a very uneventful network-wide upgrade! 🎉

  • A day before the hard fork marked the six month anniversary of Grin’s Mainnet. I gave an overview of what’s been accomplished in this brief period at last week’s London Meetup. The slides are now online [PDF], and also includes an introduction to the recent governance changes and RFC process.

  • David Vorick announced that Obelisk has cancelled their GRN1 ASIC miner. @photon provides interesting commentary further down in the forum thread.

  • The Token Talks podcast about Grin that I appeared on a few months back has now gone live.

  • Paradigm Daily (not to be confused with Paradigm.xyz) published a bi-weekly update about Grin on Telegram.

  • Looks like Grin has a comparatively healthy Github activity compared to other projects in the space:



  • Last week's governance meeting adopted the RFC process, the sub-teams proposal, and had updates on website redesign and security audit.

  • The next bi-weekly governance meeting is scheduled for Tue Jul 16 @ 15:00 UTC in grin/Lobby on Gitter. You can add topics to the agenda.
