As we wrap up another week, let’s take a look back at what happened over the last seven days.

Komodo’s Fourth Annual Notary Node Election is still going on and the community is actively voting for Notary Node candidates.

We have started a new topic on the community portal to collect all Notary Node proposals and highlight the Notary Node Candidates on Twitter.

Visit the community portal and browse through the proposals and ask questions from your favorite candidate.
