Sign up to the Newsletter!
We have launched a new way for you to keep up to date with Syscoin Platform and BCF news - you can now sign up to our newsletter and receive updates in your inbox as and when they happen.
We would like everyone to know that in spite of the Covid-19 virus it's business as usual for Syscoin, and we will continue to develop and market Syscoin with the same pace we're all accustomed to.
Syscoin Foundation members are spread all over the world with only a few members working from the Eindhoven office. The Eindhoven office will be closed for two weeks to allow members to work from home.
Syscoin Moderators and SDMT are decentralized and will continue work from home, or wherever they are, as they have in the past.
Blockchain Foundry staff are mostly decentralized, but for two weeks BCF will temporarily close both Vancouver and Toronto offices to allow staff to work from home. It is important for everyone to be responsible for their health and and respectful of other's.
Our organisations are already set up to flourish during this kind of event and this is the exact environment that blockchain technology was designed for. Once the world realizes this, our spotlight will shine.
Stay safe and wash your hands! Remember to go outside when you can!
