To our valued community,
It has been an eventful year for RaiBlocks, capped off by a December that saw unprecedented growth in the community. The Core team would like to thank each and every one of you for making this community second to none. It is your support and engagement that makes RaiBlocks such an exciting project to be a part of.
In November, the team gathered to discuss the future of Raiblocks and develop plans to further the project’s growth. One topic discussed was the name itself (“Is it, ray or rye?,” “Ditch the Blocks!,” “Just call it Rai!”). Feedback from the community suggested that improvements could be made to better resonate with the public and a mainstream audience. Because of this, our team made the decision to rebrand.
It is with great pleasure that we announce Nano.
The Core Team wanted a name that represented the simplicity and speed of the project, and Nano does just that. The new logo uses several nodes, playing on the block-lattice design of the network, that connect to form an “N.” All social media accounts will be updated to reflect the name and logo changes. The new website is nano.org.
All funds, wallets, and transactions will still operate as they have been. Addresses will continue to start with xrb_ for the moment. In the future we will introduce nano_ addresses with the rest of the current addresses being consistent. We know that many of you will have questions about the rebrand and we will do our best to answer all of them.
The Core team would like to express our humble gratitude for all of your support!
The Nano Core Team
