Overview - Piers Ridyard, CEO
As you can imagine, as we start to run up to the Alphanet launch of the Babylon network, the tech team is getting very, very busy. So busy, in fact that this week’s updates are almost entirely pictorial. Bonus points for anyone who can decipher precisely what is going on.
Even if you cannot understand the pictures, be assured that some fantastic engineering is being done by a team soaked in the fire of product delivery in the DLT space, and operating at peak “get-shit-done” performance mode.
August is normally a slow month otherwise, but not for the RDX Works tech team - this is where we start to build the power that will see us through Alphanet, Betanet, and beyond.
It sounds like the growling of distant thunder. Cannot wait to share it with the world.

Short update today as most of the recent news is in Marketing Wen-sday Shard #6, published last week, so take a look in there. Bonus points if you find a typo. Since then, however, we had a nice article in VentureBeat, written by Piers, Starting your development journey into the world of Web3, which got some nice pickup in other outlets like Business Insider.
Plus, the community continues to rock it out with events. We had a nice turnout in Oslo and Cape Town on August 4th, and next week, there’s an event in Portland, Oregon, USA.
