Uncensorable Archive Archain Gets a New logo, Token Name, Launches Test Network and App Competition!
The Archain project is creating a cryptocurrency-based decentralized and uncensorable archive parallel to the internet, as previously written about here on CryptoCompare. Following a successful token pre-sale period, the Archain project team has been pushing forward with an aggressive development timeline, launching the alpha test network 8 weeks ahead of schedule. Building on the Archain project’s spirit of community involvement, backers were recently invited to help choose a new logo for the project, and the winning design was announced this week. To accompany the brand-new logo rolling out, the name of the tokens used on the Archain network has been changed to AR cash (and will use the ticker AR).
Excitingly, this week also saw the launch of the very first Archain app development competition, to encourage developers to take advantage of Archain’s unique decentralized application model. Archain allows developers to build decentralized apps with their favourite languages and tools, making adoption simple. With large prizes of AR available for the best-judged applications, plus an investment pool of up to $10,000 up for grabs, the competition is designed to kickstart the Archain app development community.
