Did you miss Ethereum.org? If you did, we have great news for you. The Ethereum Foundation has decided to resurrect the old site with a new iteration of it.
According to a recent blog post created by the community, Ethereum.org will be an important repository for material created by the Ethereum community. Material such as tutorials and documentation will be posted on the site regularly in order to help any members of the community which might be interested in accessing this data.
An official note from the ETH development team has affirmed that this new website will be a community for the people who “busy getting things done” and that the goal will be to help people who want to educate themselves and other people while building on the Ethereum blockchain.
So far, the site has the current subpages: Beginners, Use, Learn and Build. Each page will have links and articles that will help the users whether they are just trying to understand Ethereum or have more in-depth knowledge about what is happening in the ecosystem and how to create on top of it.
Ethereum.org existed before, but the site was eventually taken down and this is basically a re-release of the old site, which will have the relevant upgrades in order to stay always fresh for the community.
According to the team, this website is only the starting point of several planned improvements and additions which are being done by the Ethereum Foundation at this time. More announcements will be done down the road.
In Ethereum-related news, the Ethereum Foundation has recently started a partnership with a company called Filecoin, currently the owner of Protocol Labs. The goal of the partnership is to create a Verifiable Delay Function (VDF) during this month.
If you are not familiar with the term, you should know that a VDF is a new type of cryptographic tool that can be used in order to be protected against hackers which use exploit program with pseudo-random number generations as their basis.
The Ethereum Foundation was also reported to be distributing grants of its Ethereum Foundation Grants Program recently. Researchers from Yale and Columbia which were created a smart contract using the DeepSea language and the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) were some of the latest to receive the funds.
