Contract Runtime


I like the schemas, even as a product designer, it helps me get the concept and scope of work that needs to be done. Would be also good if your can share progress in colour as you guys complete the roadmap along :slight_smile:


Sure thing, we’ll see what we can do with regards to denoting completed milestones visually in roadmap updates.


It would help us the NEAR ambassadors to keep the rest of the crypto community up to date on progress which I believe can be particular encouraging now in times of everyone eagerly waiting for a solution to high Ethereum fees or porting of Ethereum dApps. Sth visual easy to share on sm.
