Greetings Constellation Family,
Our goal to build a scalable and secure blockchain platform gathers pace with technical developments, marketing campaigns, events and new hires. Here is a brief roundup of all that has been going on.
Events: Decentralize Singapore and Crypto Invest
Last week the Constellation team descended on Singapore in full force. We made many new connections but a special thanks goes out to all our Singapore partners, many of which we met face to face for the first time, Spec Rationality, MW Partners, TL:DR, Chainrock and Decentralize.
At Decentralize CEO Brendan Playford took part in the panel “Blockchain: State of The Art” with Eyal Hertzog (Bancor) and Larry Salibra (Blockstack) among others. The conversation focused on emerging technologies within Blockchain and the new applications opening up as a result. For the main event CTO Wyatt took the floor to give a blistering overview of the mathematics and theories underpinning Constellations protocol. We’re taking the basis of the keynote, breaking it up into parts and creating digestible pieces of content focusing on each attribute. Full video to come next week.
Who’s heading to Crypto Invest in LA? Brendan will be presenting on May 1st and we’ll have a booth on the main floor. More info to come.
In The Press..
Our first press release went out this week and coverage is rolling in. Read Brendan’s comments on the recent surge in Bitcoin in Market Watch, watch video interviews with the team and see coverage across industry sites. Last week marked our first ramp up in PR and paid advertising so expect to see a lot more. We’ll be posting and sharing across social channels and telegram.
