Technical Update: On Factom

Tech Update Factom

This week our development team has been hard at work fixing bugs discovered in the RC1. Primarily they have been working on network and data structures. We anticipate that RC2 will be available shortly thanks in part to the hard work of our volunteer testers. We feel deeply appreciative for all the work that has gone into this project from our community.
