The Weekly Burst is a report published every Sunday to summarize and outline the Burst community activities of the week.
Effective immediately, the Weekly Burst Report will be produced under the flag of the BA (BURST-Alliance). This community-driven initiative is hosted by the BAT (BURST Apps Team), representing a public group of skilled developers, and the BMF (BURST Marketing Funds), a highly motivated group of BURST ambassadors. You can come in contact with these groups easily via the Burstcoin discord (https://discord.gg/3GZZ3Eb). In this discord are channels #marketing-and-bmf and #burst-apps-team where everyone is welcome to join and support. An introduction of the BMF can be found here .
We would also like to take this chance to acknowledge the great effort Tom (Gadrah) had done in keeping the Burst community engaged and updated through the past couple years. We are honored to have been passed the torch, and hope to continue the dedication and quality of work Tom has brought us all to expect from the Burstcoin.ist.
We have a lot of information to share, so let’s get started!
