- Filip Kalebo & Rich - decent partners: Rich has posted a write-up of the current status of the ERUP-5 upgrade. TLDR, the EVM, is not the current blocker. The current blocker is the node is not correctly producing a WASM build. Other people have had a similar issue like this on stack exchange, for example. "The process looks near the finish line; we need to solve the std leak."
- Depth Hoar Hummingbot testing has not done well in its most recent tests (it has lost $50, and it started with $200). However, I think it is doing well given the current market conditions. I am meeting with people this week to see if we can improve the bot's strategy.
- EDG Dev Meetings on Thursdays at 6 pm CEST. If you have questions for developers, please bring questions beforehand. You can listen to the recordings here.
