2018 was quite an eventful year for both the æternity team and community. Here are some of the major milestones that we reached together!
Amid a backdrop of volatile and generally declining crypto markets, the æternity project has remained true to its vision to reimagine existing trust structures and empower users on a global scale. So many exciting developments have come about in 2018, and it will be difficult to condense them into a few paragraphs. Here is our best try.
The year started with an important partnership with Erlang Solutions, a community of experts in Erlang and Elixir development who specialize in building trusted, fault-tolerant systems that can scale to billions of users. We lit the spark of curiosity about blockchain technology in some of the most experienced Erlang developers, including Erlang’s co-creator Robert Virding. In addition, Erik Stenman, Thomas Arts, Hans Svensson, Ulf Wiger, and Tobias Lindahl — all heavy-weight developers with decades of coding experience — joined the æternity project and are focusing on building the platform. In general, the technological challenge that æternity is dedicated to solving has attracted some of the most accomplished developers in the world. Inspired by the promise of open-source blockchain technology and the vision of æternity they embarked on a journey to develop a trustless, scalable blockchain platform for the next-generation of decentralized applications. Their contributions and hard work helped keep æternity in Santiment’s top 10 list of the most active projects in the space, throughout the year.
