CES Core Unit Update | #1

As the first update of the CES Core Unit, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the community supporting the ratification of CES. I realize we had about 30k MKR that voted against CES. I would encourage any of you that did not support CES, for whatever reason, to reach out to me and share your thoughts and opinions. You will find I encourage feedback of all types and I am ready to listen.

Activities this week focused on business entity/core unit formation and recruiting/hiring. These tasks are critical in the next 0-3 months.

History is your Muse? Or just like the name?

You got it!

Clio was a Greek mythological muse and Goddess, featured in heroic poetry and history. I mean, we could use a little feminine energy in this place! lol
