Ahoj! (At DevCon, we learned that’s Czech for hello.) Here is a recap for the past few weeks:

- We started our EU homecoming in Berlin where we had a fantastic time meeting new people and seeing familiar faces at Web3 Summit.

- We stayed around Berlin as we prepared for Devcon and worked night and day on Testnet.

- Rolled into Prague via train and attended Devcon 4 while hosting nightly meetups where we shared an internal version of our upcoming testnet.

Thanks to projects Fluence, Swarm, Livepeer, and all of the attendees who gave their personal time to attend this memorable meetup with us.

Why we’re rolling our own “intra-planetary” node discovery, a Justin Myles thought piece…

Nearly all of my casual conversations about decentralized network architecture for the past three months or so have quickly come to be (at least partly) a discussion about node discovery…

Hackathons

At NuCypher, we don’t pay for marketing, shilling, referral bounties, or any types of offside strategies to achieve growth.

We do however support hackathons. We believe the best users of NuCypher are out there and will dream up the best use cases of the product.

We have a number of hackathons coming up!
