Hey ZetArmy! This article marks our first weekly update blog which we will be putting out at the close of each week. The purpose of these recaps is to briefly reflect on what happened over the week as well as share what exciting things are in the pipeline for the coming week. We love our community and want to keep you all looped in for the journey ahead! ❤️
This week was an incredibly busy one to say the least. We publicly announced just over a week ago and the response from the community was unbelievable!
📈 Within just a week we’ve already smashed:
- 24k Discord members
- Almost 8k Twitter followers
- Roughly 900 email signups
- A whopping 3.4k claps on our inception Medium article
That’s some unreal growth and we can’t thank you all enough for the support 🙏 . On our Discord, we have an active community from all across the globe 🌐 , and an amazing community manager and moderator team who make it a friendly and fun environment for all. Thanks to all the awesome server boosters we also kicked off an art competition for our Discord server banner, the winners of which will be announced soon.
In other news, Zeta enrolled in the Solana Season Hackathon and all three of the co-founders wrapped up their jobs to go full-time on Zeta 💪 . Over the week we’ve grown the team to 8 amazing, passionate individuals with skills ranging from full-stack software engineering, design and UI/UX, business development and community management 🚀.
We also spent a few days polishing our Gitbook litepaper which will be published very soon (stay tuned 👀). This elaborates on more of the mechanics of how Zeta will bring efficient options trading to DeFi. Furthermore, our awesome FE Engineers whipped up a sleek new landing page. In terms of product, we’ve been working hard to architect the back-end in Anchor and are continually integrating it with a minimalist front-end to get something working end-to-end.
Most recently we also released our educational blog, Zeta 101. The first post, “What’s an Option?”, explains in simple terms what options are and why they’re typically used in traditional markets.
For the upcoming week, we’re knuckling down on building, with an ambitious goal to get our binary options MVP in a tradable state by roughly the end of the week/early next week 🔜 . Our designer and engineers are also working hard to design an elegant trading front-end which we can hook into the Rust back-end.
We have some big announcements coming up this next week, so make sure to join the Zeta Discord and follow @ZetaMarkets on Twitter to keep up to date with the latest progress. Once we have our MVP on devnet there’ll be something exciting released for the community to participate in, so stay tuned and make sure to tell your friends. In the meantime, sit tight!
