Our Vision for Distributed Ledger Technology

Following  CTO Wyatt Meldman-Floch and V.P of Engineering Ryle Goehausen’s rousing talk from TechCrunch,  we recently published a blog post diving into the overarching vision fueling Constellation. Also addressed the current limitations in the distributed ledger space, and how our approach differs.  Read the post in its entirety on the Constellation blog!

Community Awards

This week, we wanted to take a break from the more inward-facing technical content and have a little fun by honoring our community with some prestigious, totally made up awards (such as Meme Lord). Thanks to our community for all your continuous support, and have a look at our Champions of Community piece!

Ambassador Program

Last month we announced the launch of our Global Ambassador Network.  We wanted to remind the community about the amazing work being done.  In a few short months, it has already lead to partnerships with MOBI and Hyperledger.  The program offers the tools and knowledge needed to integrate blockchain into networks eager to embrace blockchain technology around the world. While our early focus is on mobility, IoT, and renewable energy applications, we’re also extending into a multitude of industries, based on ambassador outreach and momentum.

“In 5 years, I believe blockchain will become the core technology for innovation, and I believe in Constellation Labs’s vision to bring decentralized technology to the next level. I saw an ambitious dream in Constellation. Constellation will take a big role of upgrading blockchain technology to a universal common language, and thus enhancing global connectivity, such as internet and mobile, that shaped the world to how it is today. I’m happy to be an Ambassador of Constellation Labs, helping to continue to propel innovation, together.” – Constellation Ambassador and former Hello Kitty Managing Director, Ray Rehito Hatoyama.

In addition to Hatoyama, early Constellation Ambassadors include Sebastian Spitzer, New Business Specialist at REHAU; Ratul Saha, Founder of GetonChain; Julian Jung, Co-founder, and Partner of Game Theory Crypto Group; and Jacob Mullins, Partner at Shasta Ventures.

Site Updates

You’ll notice a drip of changes to our site, Orion and marketing material over the next few weeks. We’re taking the time to fine-tune our messaging and narrative to more accurately reflect our technology and vision – Enterprise Grade Distributed Ledger Technology.

Until next week.

Sincerely,

The Constellation Team
