Constellation – 2019: A Year in Review

0

Note – This article was written by Mathias Goldman, VP of Finance, and originally posted on the Constellation website.

What a wild year we embarked on! First off, a huge THANK YOU to all of you that leaned in and supported us in 2019. It truly was instrumental in building a solid foundation as we head into 2020. 

I wanted to take a moment to provide a brief recap on Constellation in 2019. As many of you might have seen, I recently posted a State of the Union where I did a recap on who Constellation is, what we do, what we have accomplished, and where we are going. 

2019 started with a period of silence and ended the year with exponential growth and momentum across social media (mentions and followers), a letter of support and endorsement by The United Air Force, and a strong and engaged community in Telegram. Our community truly embodied decentralization by self-organizing and establishing a governance group to help further the development of policies, values, and ethics of Constellation and an education group, called Stardust Collective, to further simplify and disseminate the message of Constellation. 

Next year will be a year focused on growth and adoption by focusing on integrations and clients in the private and public sector while rolling out our MainNet (native token, validator rewards, and developer tools to build secure data validation solutions).

2019 A Year in Review
