What a great 15 months we have had! We launched our private business-focused blockchain platform Jupiter, created a cross-pollination verification program for private blockchains, we’ve seen our first customers, Mercury was airdropped to thousands of early Waves and Darcrus adopters and added to Bittrex, Tidex and Upbit, we successfully ran a 50,000 MER treasure hunt, Steven has resigned from his day job and now works full-time at Sigwo Technologies, and Mercury became the most used Waves token.Darcrus
