Community Wins :fire:

We started with the community wins where Joe highlighted all the winners from our Clarity Hack 2 Winners.

  • Congrats to Friedger for bringing home the 1st prize with Clarity Web IDE

  • 2nd place was Lumio - A visual clarity builder built my Marvin Janssen who’s developing Ryder, a blockstack identity hardware wallet.

  • Blockstack Dev Tool by Leo Pradel. Unprecedented wallet control for Clarity.

    Just so you know, we’re revisiting Smart Contracts for phase 3 so stay tuned for some big announcements!

The second win was the “Mining Script Demo w/ Jason” where he shows us how he does mining. The session goes into Virtual Box, Ubuntu Server and a one-liner shell script that install all the dependencies that you need for STX mining.

The last win was from Jenny, she highlighted that our town halls are becoming more and more decentralized. You don’t wanna miss this next one! Mark your calendar for our July townhall on the 31st.

Blockstack Connect Update :chains: c/o @markmhendrickson and @hank

Developers can look forward to using the new version of connect to sign a transaction using clarity smart contracts that are published in the stacks 2.0 testnet. Stay tuned for the announcement! :point_up:

Putting this out there → The UI/UX team needs our feedback to further improve the user experience before mainnet. So please connect with Mark and Hank if you have any! They are also looking for small group feedback session either 1 on 1, 2, or 3. So if you’re interested I’m more than happy to coordinate a time that works for everyone.

Also, Hank did a demo of the new connect. You can view it in the recording @ 10.44 onwards.
