This is a start-of-the-week Enterprise Times ‘blockchain catch-up for Week 20. Last week was a normal week, with no public holiday. With 25th May being both Memorial Day in the US and the late Spring bank Holiday in the UK, the next Blockchain Catch-up will cover both Weeks 21 and 22 (on 1st June).
The catch-up is not intended to be comprehensive; it does highlight developments covered and then, in a second section, lists a selection of ‘happenings’ which, for whatever reason, Enterprise Times did not specifically discuss.
