NKN Roadmap beyond Mainnet: an August 2019 update



When we launched our mainnet Narwhal in July 2019, we outlined our high level plans beyond Mainnet. Now it is time for an update and put a little bit more details to the roadmap beyond Mainnet.

There are two main tracks that happen in parallel and enhance each other:

  1. Mainnet tech and token economics
  2. Products and commercialization

The key milestones are planned in quarters. As a young and small project, we need to stay focused and agile. We endeavor to not only meet, but exceed our own targets. Therefore, we will give you regular updates as we move forward.
