EDG Community Update: April 25th, 2022

Highlights

  • The crowdloan waitlist is open for Kabocha.
  • All validators are requested to upgrade their nodes to the release v3.3.3 to proceed further with the ERUP5/Wako upgrade through the on-chain governance. The core community dev Ramsey recently shared the docker image for v3.3.3 aka ERUP5/Wako upgrade to save the compiling hustle for node/validator owners.
