Hello Airfox community!
It seems like every time the team puts together an update post, Boston gets slammed with another foot of snow! Aside from the crazy weather, the team in Boston and Brazil have managed to accomplish A LOT over the last few weeks. Our last Monthly Engineering Update, provided some great updates about the initial features of the Airfox App, the way Airtokens will be transferred from the old Airfox Browser to the new app, the difference between the Airfox dApp (decentralized AirToken app)and the Airfox Android app, and other tech-related updates.
