POA Network Updates: September/October 2019

It’s been a busy 2 months! Here are some highlights from September and October:

Website & Branding

We’ve updated our project websites and branding to move towards an informative, simple and organized presentation. This approach is driven by open-source, crypto-centric imperatives such as the use of hashed project name identicons to reflect the visual identity of each project.

While we have migrated basic information, we are continuing to expand each of our sites. Look for new information and tutorials added regularly, and feel free to contact us through each site with any questions or suggestions.
