Summary

I’ll be prioritizing Polywrap’s treasury diversification strategy, while still maintaining our relationships with Launch Partners and potentially meeting new ones. Will be working on a new “DeFi SDK” demo with Niraj, which we’ll be entering the Gitcoin grant hackathon with. We’re expecting it to be our best demo to showcase Polywrap’s capabilities in a clear and concise way.
