This is a start-of-the-week Enterprise Times ‘blockchain catch-up for Week 22. Last week had Memorial Day in the US and the late Spring Bank Holiday in the UK, so this Blockchain Catch-up covers both Weeks 21 and 22.
The catch-up is not intended to be comprehensive; it seeks to highlight developments covered by Enterprise Times and then, in a second section, list a selection of ‘happenings’ which (for whatever reason) Enterprise Times did not choose to discuss.
