New horizons and ownership for the community
Obsidian’s community migrated across to ODIN from July 2018 as ODIN coins were freely distributed via an airdrop. We saw an uptake in many of our community members getting involved in design, development, and support for ODIN. It was exciting to see this in action, as a core goal of Obsidian was to enable the community to have involvement across all areas, and the community saw a lot of parallels with ODIN’s ethos and increasingly expansive roadmap.
Some key community members have remained heavily involved in ODIN, a proof-of-stake blockchain based on Bitcoin, DASH, PIVX, and Phore technologies. The ODIN community continues to develop and the team was recently approved by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to operate as an official non-profit co-operative.
The ODIN Society now manages Obsidian Assets including the foundation wallet, which is controlled by KYC and AML-checked ODIN Society Custodians, on behalf of the community. The wallet is locked and preserved, for the benefit of the community.
We are very pleased to see how the ODIN vision is evolving and vastly extending our original fulfilled vision at Obsidian of an encrypted, anonymous messenger. ODIN Society have released an anonymous messenger on Google Play with an iOS app in development (and much more coming soon).
We look forward to what the future will bring!
