Growing up, all I wanted to do was tell stories of people doing things that pushed the boundaries of what was considered conventional. In the crypto world, there is no shortage of these kinds of stories. Within the Stacks ecosystem, we have so many builders blazing their own trails in order to build a better internet (no easy feat).
From Satoshibles building the first NFT bridge between Ethereum and Bitcoin, to the birth of the Bitcoin Odyssey Fund with Okcoin, we have seen what is possible when builders have the right resources at their disposal.
This past quarter, we also celebrated International Women’s Day and saw female founders establish new use cases for IVF, bring on star talent to support their projects, and host virtual NFT gallery openings.
In this newsletter, you’ll get a recap of some of the major happenings in the Stacks ecosystem. As the Stacks blockchain turned 1 year old this year, it is amazing to see how far teams have come in such little time.
Always be building,
Caitlin Eckvahl and the Stacks Foundation Team
