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 Elections have officially started!
A snapshot of the KMD blockchain was taken on April 12th to distribute the VOTE tokens. Everyone in possession of their private keys was credited with the VOTE tokens on April 13th.
The voting period will last until May 4, 2020. You can cast your ballots by sending the VOTE tokens to the address(es) of your preferred candidate(s).
A list of all candidates can be found here.
Komodo wishes all candidates good luck!
CoinTelegraph has published an article about KMD’s price movement against the dollar in the past 28 days. They also briefly explain the technology and use cases of Komodo. In addition to that, they mention how Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) drew attention to Komodo as far back as 2018. In a Forbes article from August of that year, CZ suggested customizable blockchains like Komodo may be poised to outlast the previous generation’s crop of general-use chains.
Although these are extraordinary times because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Komodo developers are working every day to make Komodo better and stand out from the competition.
