This week, Mance Harmon, Co-Founder and CEO, provided a quick update on Hedera18, our first hashgraph developer conference, including a free global livestream of the conference, new conference pricing, and 4 additional hackathon locations. The video and full transcript of the update are inside.
Hedera is the world’s first fast, fair, and secure public ledger for decentralized applications (dapps). Found inside are 7 innovative dapps using Hedera Hashgraph to disrupt their respective industries in finance, media and entertainment, real estate, gaming, and online marketplaces.
We remain highly focused on building out our platform, and today are excited to announce that we have reached another milestone with the launch of our main network (mainnet). The network will provide the first three services - cryptocurrency, file storage, and support for Solidity smart contracts. The public APIs are completed, and will start being tested by our selected partners over the next few weeks.
We have officially closed our crowdsale. We will not be accepting any new applications and the crowdsale registration page has been removed from our website. Please do not fall for any scams pretending to still be collecting funds from Hedera.
Yesterday, Mance Harmon, Co-Founder and CEO of Hedera, provided a quick update on some key milestones, and addressed some of the many questions we have received via Telegram, Twitter, email, and other channels.
