Roadmap update

In case you missed it, we published our latest roadmap this week, which outlines the unique and user-friendly features/improvements we plan on bringing to the ecosystem in the near future.

New advisor

We also have an exciting new advisor to announce. Top blockchain architect Daniel Kraft has officially joined Divi as a technical advisor. Daniel was the lead developer for Namecoin, which was the first fork of Bitcoin, and he's now CTO of Xaya, a blockchain-based gaming platform. He is one of the world’s leading authorities on the “Names and Metadata” blockchain technology Divi needs to accomplish its stated goals. For those of you who were with us in the beginning, you may remember that we had a mystery team member. That was Daniel, who wasn't able to list his name because he was a developer at Google at the time. His role will be to help steer The Divi Project in the right direction as we move forward making Crypto easier.

  • Divi will be working with DNA moving forward for marketing. The firm will work alongside Krupp Kommunications to bolster Divi’s media and outreach objectives.
