Hey guys, Chucky here.
Many of you have shared valid concerns with us about a lack of transparency, clarity, and decentralization in the project. We’ve spent time looking hard at our plans and priorities, and where we’re allocating resources. It’s clear that in our rush to build cool things, we also haven’t done nearly enough to communicate with you.
So, we’re pausing most layer-2 development, increasing our communication, and focusing on decentralization to release the network safely. We’ve also created a new category for you to keep up with all of these efforts: Progress
Finally, we’ll be keeping on top of your concerns and questions, and I’ll answer them in a weekly roundup post just like this one.
Below are some of the latest concerns and questions that have been brought up:
