Tech & Product Update - October 2021

Curious about what the Pi Core Team is working on behind the scenes before Mainnet? Look no further — we’re releasing monthly tech and product updates that will be posted around the beginning of each month with an overview of the previous month’s work. These updates will focus on Pi’s technology updates and product highlights to show the Pi Core Team’s completed and ongoing efforts in developing our product, but this will not be a complete list of all work done by the Core Team during that period (e.g. minor or routine tech updates, community, operations or general business work).
