The ecosystem team was busy organising the WAM hackathon. Three weeks of intensive happenings with lots of talks, presentations, workshops, bounties and demos resulted in what is soon to become the WAM DAO. You can watch the recordings of the events on YouTube. In the meantime join the WAM community on the FDS Discord to stay tuned for the information on the DAO and other upcoming WAM events.
