OpenChain Revamps FAQ

SAN FRANCISCO, UNITED STATES– (Apr 20th 2017) –The OpenChain Project today announces a revamped Frequently Asked Questions page designed to make participation easier for everyone:

“There are three Work Teams in OpenChain: Specification, Conformance and Curriculum,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Program Manager. “Volunteers have been working in each of these teams to build out community documentation to help make OpenChain adoption simpler for existing and new community members. The release of our revamped FAQ is the first outcome of their hard work and marks a quiet but important milestone in OpenChain’s development towards broad market adoption.”

Individuals and organizations of all sizes are welcome to participate in the OpenChain Project. Our Community page is the best starting point and contains all the information needed to join our calls, access our wiki or contact individual Work Team Chairpeople.
