Fetch.AI weekly newsletter #002 – A new website and discussing this week’s events at Fetch

Welcome again to another busy week at Fetch.AI. We’ve got new starters, a new website and held a second successful meetup in London.

Thanks to everyone who came to our meetup in Aldwych House. If you were unable to attend, the full-length video is here:

At the meetup, Cheif Technology Officer Toby Simpson announced the roadmap plan for the months ahead. Within the next week, sections of the ledger source code will be released for testing. In the next fortnight, we will also be publishing the Consensus and Useful Proof of Work white paper and granting access to an increasingly large private test network.

Later this year we will be giving people the opportunity to design, build and test Autonomous Economic Agents (AEAs) using Fetch’s virtual machine and share their feedback by accessing a new community section of our website.

Further information about our long-term plans can be found on our blog post from the evening, which you can read here on our updated website which we launched earlier today.

As a reminder, we have other meetups planned for the next few weeks. You can catch us in:

You can sign-up for these events, and many more besides, by joining our Meetup group here.

We’re picking up momentum and it feels like we pass another milestone every day.  To maintain this, we’ve been recruiting more top class talent. Our latest recruit is Patrick Olden, who joins us as a Blockchain Research Engineer. You can read more about him here.

Earlier this week we were also delighted to announce our new partnership with wi-Q Technologies. The agreement marks the first public roll-out of our AEAs. As such, wi-Q Technologies will become the first hospitality technology company to develop its own agent.  Further information about the partnership can again be found on our rapidly developing blog.

Thanks for reading all that we’ve been up to.

Chris.
