Coming as the latest advancement in the cryptosphere, the Ethereum Foundation has decided to release a new release of their community website ethereum.org, as per an official tweet on April 30.
It is to be noted that ethereum.org is intended to be a repository of community-created Ethereum content, such as documentation and tutorials built by community members, as per an Ethereum Foundation blog post on the same day. The Ethereum team goes on to say that the ethereum foundation’s website is a website for a community that is quite occupied in getting things done, educating themselves and each other, on-boarding new developers and users, and building. It is to be noted that this is also reflected in the 4 subpages available on the website thus far. These four pages include- Beginners, Use, Learn, and Build. Nevertheless, the team, lay stress on the point that the website in its present state is just a preliminary point. Moreover, they look forward to the community to make enhancements and accompaniments.
As per the previous media reports, the Ethereum Foundation has partnered with Filecoin owner Protocol Labs to craft a new Verifiable Delay Function as of April. Verifiable Delay Functions are a new category of cryptographic tool that defends against malevolent users who try to take advantage of the programs using pseudo-random number generators for their individual gain.
Furthermore, the Ethereum Foundation awards research grants by means of their Ethereum Foundation Grants Program that fund an assortment of community-based Ethereum projects. Notably, the Ethereum foundation has awarded several grants to researchers at Yale and Columbia who are compiling the smart contract language DeepSea into the Ethereum Virtual Machine, as crypto media outlets have covered earlier.
