Elastos is community driven. We care about our community, we listen to our community, and most importantly, we work with our community to build a better Elastos ecosystem. For us, Elastos members are also community members and evangelists.
Starting this month (Summer 2018), we will be initiating seasonal community engagement & communication plans on Medium. We would love to hear your opinions and how you can help us achieve this goal. Therefore, we are leaving the comments section open so you can let us know your thoughts. If you do have suggestions, please let us know. If email is better, you can send your thoughts here: [email protected].
