The team continues to make steady progress on white paper deliverables and SNT Utility swarms. The goal is still to deliver on the white paper promises by end of Q1 and then move on to polish the features and UX once implemented.

The team was at ETHDenver over the weekend and collected a lot of really great feedback from hackers and users of Status. There was a push to release v0.9.34 ahead of Denver and we saw some promising metrics around updates and installs at the time of the release (Feb 12) and on the first day of EthDenver (Feb 15)
