Hopefully, you all had the chance to participate in the open access mainnet launch of Hedera Hashgraph last week, either live with Dr. Leemon Baird and Mance Harmon or virtually. The mainnet launched with 26 Dapps and is providing three services: cryptocurrency throttled to 10,000 transactions per second, smart contracts, and file service. If you missed the launch party, you can learn more here.
