April at Arweave has seen us focus on network updates and community initiatives. Here is the latest:

[Network]

🎉 Since we last updated you in February this year, the number of nodes in the network has grown by 184%! 🎉

This month we released a new version of the Arweave mining software, which increased the efficiency of mining significantly. The conjoined result of the influx of new miners in the network and the more efficient mining software has raised the average amount of work in the production of each block by over 100 fold — greatly increasing the security of the network.

[Community builds]

Our awesome community have been busy building apps on the permaweb. Check out some of their integrations:

[Have your say]

If you have a minute to take part in our super short survey, we’d love to hear more about what you’d like to see from Arweave in the coming months.

As we move towards further community initiatives and adoption of the network in the coming weeks and months, we look forward to bringing you more updates and seeing what awesome projects are being built on the permaweb!

See you on the permaweb:
