Hashpower goes parabolic, Kingfish is open-sourced, and much more.

Happy Monday everyone! This week Bitgrin hit a number of milestones that have been long-awaited and I am excited to share with all of them with you in this week’s newsletter.

Highlights from this past week:

  • Network hashrate increases 10-fold

  • Kingfish is now open source with an MIT license

  • Official Bitgrin twitter account reaches 1,000 followers

  • pool.bitgrin.io and Vinex upgrade to v2.0


Shoutout to Pharazen!

Before going on with the newsletter. I would like to give a shoutout to lead dev, Pharazen. Despite having a massive workload developing for this project full-time, he’s been extremely active in the Discord and Telegram channels answering questions and helping out with community members with any issues they’ve encountered. He’s been very dedicated to both the project(development wise) and the community, so really thought a shoutout was appropriate in this week’s update.

Wrap Up - Great Week For Bitgrin!

This week has brought forth strong developments to the project while at the same time showing the community’s dedication. Pharazen open-sourced Kingfish and released a new update to the wallet, both Vinex and the Bitgrin pool followed upgrades to 2.0 accordingly.

Community members rallied together to get 80 votes for the chance of getting listed on Qtrade, the Bitgrin twitter surpassed +1,000 followers and the work for the Bitgrin FAQ has been set in motion by the community. The network has become significantly more secure and we are just getting started.

As we aim to become a truly decentralized project , it’s important that community members work together to move our vision forward in becoming the best privacy coin in the world.

Onwards!
