Yeah, I think as you you know that there has been many challenges to overcome. Surely with developing from the ground up with hascal. But yes, over the past few months we have focused our technical development on scale from the very beginning. We firmly decided to develop based on Cardano instead of ERC20 or Binance smart chain, So it would have been a lot easier to have developed in a solidity, let's say and port those applications over, but with Haskell being a functional language, it’s designed for financial applications, so it can produce a solid foundation for a DeFi infrastructure hub to be coded. In this functional language, as opposed to. Solidity, which as we know has had some problems with various exploits and so on that we've seen with various DEFI applications. So haskell functional language is designed for financial applications. You know, if you research haskell, you'll see that it just makes sense to develop and spend the time building a robust system in Haskell. .And then there is of course EVMs that will come along later on, which can provide layers on top of that, but I think having that foundation based in Haskell it's very important for a DeFi application, so that has been one of the big challenges for the whole Cardano ecosystem. What makes all Members excited most is the launch of a dApp that is truly based from the ground up of Cardano ecosystem and we are very proud that what we're doing right now is based on scale. The beta version of Asarter Launchpad on Cardano is already done. We support the issuance of native tokens with a one click, so this provides a safe, convenient environment for project owners to do fundraising and provide Technical Support to the projects which plan to launch on Cardano so the project can reduce its technical overhead and issue a native Cardano token with just a few simple clicks you know you enter the token. ticker, the amount of tokens, and submit that to the blockchain and it creates the native project token. So that's a huge barrier removal, of a barrier for projects,a technical barrier for projects looking to get off the ground. Token issuance is dealt with rapidly, so that's some of the most exciting things of the beta version. That is expected to launch very soon and people can get their hands on it. We will be launching with the NAMI wallet and Yoroi wallet for those who are familiar with those. And you know getting those wallet connectors working has been a big breakthrough for our team. We're currently looking to increase the number of wallets so we can add, say, the Moon stake wallet which is in progress and get these things ready for Astarter as we go to market.
