Re: Launch retrospective and next steps
A hearty congratulations from the other side of the pond (in southern
hemisphere) to the entire GRIN team (core & extended).
Yes I was up @ 2:00 am MST witnessing the launch execute and unfold so well.
We have a small yet very strong community here, who are equally keen, very
excited about the prospects of GRIN and are currently supporting the
network by contributing their GPUs & gps (via GRINMINT).
