Community Update #10

Hello, NuCypher community — we’re very thankful for your ongoing support! The team had a great second half of August capping it off with IACR CRYPTO 2018 and a team homecoming in Malaga, Spain. We kicked off our big developer roadshow, starting with ETHIndia (recap below). Up next is Berlin for Blockchain Week in early September. We hope to meet many of you along the way!
