Hey everyone,

From this week I’ll be sending weekly updates.

I was in Hong Kong most of last week and came back from there more energized than ever.

Wins of the week:

  • HK Decentralized the World Tour was a success with some great speakers like Nick Grossman (USV), Dan Jeffries (Hackernoon), George Gilder (Life After Google), Bonnie Cheung (500 Startups) and 200+ attendees, 100 on a live stream. Larry publicly mentioned his new startup (spin-out from Blockstack PBC) for the first time and talked about why browsers (user-agents) are important and Jude gave an excellent overview of Stacks blockchain v2.
  • Ashley Smith, formerly marketing lead of Github and CMO of GitLab, has signed on to be a consultant/advisor for us. She’ll be actively working on various aspects of marketing
  • We’re excited to have TryMyUI as officially the 3rd App Reviewer!
  • Q1 OKRs are now finalized with leads. We're off to the races.

Last week updates:

This week we have our Q4 board meeting. Looking forward to a productive week!
