Welcome to the fourth issue of the HAL newsletter!
What a crazy week has been! HAL v1 is finally here. We launched "Recipes", a game-changer to make Ethereum dApps easier to use.
To celebrate, we released an integration with a different dApp every day for a week and the feedback of the community has been so positive that we are starting the “One recipe a day to make Ethereum easier to use” marathon with this Gitcoin grant.
#1 - Monday - PoolTogether
#2 - Tuesday - Aave
#3 - Wednesday - Compound
#4 - Thursday - Loopring
#5 - Friday - Chainlink
#6 - Yesterday - Synthetix
We’re going to release several new recipes over the next days, but we’d also love to hear from you which recipe you’d like to see next by filling the Typeform here :)
An unexpected bot joins the family
This one wasn’t really planned, but when Robert Leshner asked for the community to build a Twitter bot, Leighton Cusack from PoolTogether was quick to suggest HAL:
The tremendous work of the last few weeks has been rewarded by a marked growth across all our primary channels: so far we’ve seen:
+120% growth in our web users in just one week since we launched recipes
~500 followers on Twitter (more than doubled since we launched recipes)
~150 members on our Telegram channel
