Crown Core Team Announcement 28th August 2017
Delayed Launch for Crown Atomic
We have delayed the launch of Crown Atomic. With three days to go before our original launch date of 1st September, we reviewed our current position and we have decided that we aren't currently happy enough with the code to release it and feel that we have an opportunity to improve the quality and depth of what the API will offer before releasing it to the wild.
We won't be putting an exact date on the revised launch but we expect that it will be no later than 1st October 2017.
New Team Member
We are delighted to announce that Artem Brahzhnikov (@artem), a mathematician, cryptographer and talented C++ developer has joined the Crown development team. Artem brings a huge amount of knowledge and experience to the team and has quickly taken to the Crown code. Artem's clarity of mind and experience with transactional systems will be a huge boost to our development path in the coming months.
The Crown Atomic delay is partly driven by us wanting to have an opportunity for Artem to use his fresh eyes to quality control what we have so far, before asking the community to help us test.
It is the first time that the Crown team has missed a significant deadline and not a decision that we have taken lightly. We are confident that it is the correct decision and that the delay will benefit the project.
