Looking Back on Season 4

A brief summary of highlights

Tableland organizes work into 3 month blocks called Seasons. Although we’re currently in Season 5 (which spans Q4 2022 → Q1 2023), we wanted to look back on Season 4 to reflect on all the amazing work that set us up for Season 5.

When we started Season 4 back in June, the protocol, the network, and the ecosystem pretty much didn't exist! Here’s a brief summary of the highlights, and be sure to dig into our Tweet thread for even more detail.

Finally, to see what’s queued up you can pop over to our Roadmap.

Season 4 highlights
