Development work to complete the 2017 Decred Roadmap is happening right now. Two essential new features are privacy and smart contracts.
We invite you all to join the development work. There are funds secured to contract developers with the right skills and experience.
Decred is calling for collaboration so that the community will have the ability to vote on multiple implementations.
Check out the #privacy and #smart_contracts channels on the Decred Slack.
Anyone interested can contact @raedah on Slack.
