November Community Awards: A New Foothold In Asia

AudoDecember 7, 2019

The Komodo team acknowledges and rewards key community contributions each month and, with another month  now behind us, it's time to honor those who made significant contributions to the Komodo project in November 2019! 

While many community members made big contributions, the Komodo team is unable to feature everyone who is pushing the project forward. The community bounties are awarded based on the team’s understanding and judgment of the most significant contributions. If you think we have overlooked someone, you can give us a hint anytime, now or in the future.

Komodo’s community bounty budget is 3000 KMD in November 2019, and it will go to the following diligent contributors.
