Hello Constellation Community,

Last week was quite the ride with token distribution and a testnet demo. Here’s a roundup of all the updates and as well as new team members and community announcements.  Read on for more.

New Channels

We do not wish to influence organic speculation in one way or another so we do not discuss trading within our official channels. We actively encourage community members to join or create trading groups if they wish to discuss those topics- similar to what our community member has done with his trading group here: https://t.me/constellationtrader
