Meet Elastos Digerati: Providing News and Updates for Elastos
Rong Chen, the founder of Elastos, has spent the last two decades building a Smart Web that is secure, decentralized, and accessible to everyone. Now, in 2023, all of the necessary components of the infrastructure are finally coming together, and the Elastos Digerati Team is ready to share it with the world. So what’s the definition of Digerati? Dictionary.com defines it as “people skilled with or knowledgeable about digital technologies, especially computers and the internet.” Given the expertise of this newly established group, the name Digerati seemed quite fitting for the team name.
Comprised of five dedicated individuals who have been with the project since the beginning, the Elastos Digerati Team is on a mission to spread the word about the Elastos ecosystem and infrastructure. The Team is eager to connect with the community and share the latest updates and developments on Elastos.Info and various social media channels. In addition, they will be hosting AMA sessions with core team members and contributors. They will be active on social media, engaging with the community and the wider crypto audience to spread the word about the exciting things happening with Elastos.
The time has come for Elastos to shine, and the Elastos Digerati Team is leading the charge. Stay tuned for exclusive updates and insights as they work tirelessly to bring the full potential of the Elastos project to life. So, let’s meet the team.
