Technical Update: Towards RC2

Tech Update Rc2 Toward

The Dev team was able to resolve the two bugs from last week that were disconnecting peers from the network. As Paul Snow loving says, “we are knocking the dust out” this week. Our amazing community testers are helping us chase down the last few system bugs. Our Devs are resolving them as fast as possible. We greatly appreciate the hard work of everyone involved in the project. Factom has become a reality because of the time and energy invested by our community.

When the world first learned about Factom
About this time last year, Brian Deery did the first public presentation of Notary Chains, which turned into Factom. The low level and less ambitious project to help free up the bitcoin blockchain and save cost.
