13th week of 2017

We hadn’t noticed at all how the first month of spring flew by. Outside the window—it was already April!

The merriest celebrations for the first day of April were held in Kolionovo. A big crowd gathered at the house of our friend and partner, Mikhail Shlyapnikov, to enjoy the spring and celebrate International Bird Day. People came to the village of Kolionovo from all corners of the country for a chance to chat with the famous farmer as well as build some bird feeders and just have a good time. Mikhail’s Facebook page is flashing with bright photos from that day: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001802183805&pnref=lhc.unseen

That day, Mikhail also presented his new project, “Kolionovo Ekosystem” (“The Ecosystem of Kolionovo”),
and officially announced the beginning of fundraising for its development. The main purpose of the project is to raise crowdfunding resources for the development of real agriculture. ICO is based on the Waves platform with the use of Emercoin services. https://kolionovo.com

If you remember, we had written earlier that we are officially switching to merged mining. And it hasn’t taken long to see the results! Throughout March, the growth in the complexity of Emercoin’s mining has increased twenty times over. According to Emercoin’s team, the total network hash rate has exceeded 5 petahashes and continues to growing. How can one not be happy over such news! If you would like to know more, read our press release here: http://www.blockchainengine.org/with-the-transition-to-merged-mining-the-processing-power-of-the-emercoin-network-has-grown-tenfold/

We are also happy to announce that the updated version of Emercoin-wallet 0.6.1 was released. And it’s even better than before! If you still have not downloaded it, here is the link: http://emercoin.com/#download Downloading won’t take a lot of time. We promise!

“Here it goes!” is what fans of cryptocurrency must have exclaimed when they heard that Japan has passed a law to recognize digital currencies as a legal payment method. Details: https://www.rt.com/business/383101-japan-law-bitcoin-currency/
