The NEM team on September 12 announced that the Catapult V2 is on course despite perceived delay. The platform’s Migration Steering Committee has been focused on the project. The committee includes leaders and key members of the NEM Foundation, NEM Studios, NEM Ventures, Tech Bureau, and core developers.
The release stated that there has been a lot of work going on in the background as the team work on the project that is meant to usher the platform into a new phase meant to be the future host of the NEM blockchain.
Even as the project is ongoing, there has been call for more conversation behind the scene. Some community members are also calling for need to share updates. According to a tweet by Jaguar0625,
“I hope the Catapult migration team will share their decisions with the community (and devs) incrementally and not all at once. In spirit of decentralization, it would be nice to get community feedback on decisions”
The idea is to get input from the community in the bid to carry everyone along and also get insight into the direction that users would want the project to move.
The call was made for community members to take advantage of the platform’s forum to make suggestions to the team even as the catapult v2 testing is in progress.
The post further admonished that the community do not fret on the delays in the launch of the v2 which has been promoted as “industry’s most practical and secure blockchain” that brings massive improvement in speed and scalability among other features.
The project when complete would add value to the NEM blockchain to the benefit of the ecosystem in general.
