Elastos Bi-Weekly Update – 04 January 2020

“It's 1993 once again. The only difference this time around is that it’s an internet of code instead of an internet of data.”
- Rong Chen January 3, 2020

On January 3rd 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto mined the genesis block of Bitcoin and the network was born. Eleven years later, on January 3rd 2020, Elastos released the first version of elastOS, and a different kind of network was born. 

With this week’s launch of elastOS, people all over the world can download an app onto their phones and begin taking part in a new kind of internet: one where data is censorship-resistant. You own it, you control it, and you can protect it.

Just like in 1993, elastOS v1 is just the beginning. Developers all over the world can now create dApps to run inside of elastOS, and educate users as to the problem these technologies are resolving with their adoption.

It has been a great start to the new decade.
