Beam News

A big week for Beam as we push forward towards the upcoming release of BeamX to enable privacy focussed applications to be built on top of Beam. One important step in this direction is increasing the number of outside builders, and thus we have joined the upcoming Encode Club Hackathon.

The hackathon is spread over 10 weeks, and presents a chance for developers to learn about various platforms, and build out initial applications. We are looking forward to seeing the first builders on BeamX.

Looking to build!? Get your dev friends, or go it alone, register, and start hacking!

Beam Outreach

This week brings a special announcement: Beam Outreach! It is with pleasure that we bring Beam Outreach to the Beam community and ecosystem. The platform has been under development the last months, and will look to go live to the wider community in the near future. If you are eager to get involved, and help with the initial testing, reach out below!
