2022 came to an end with some noteworthy achievements for the drand team. We took some time to reflect on our achievements and set the scene for 2023. In this blogpost we share the highlights of 2022 and our roadmap for 2023.
So far, all of the nodes that participate in the League of Entropy’s drand network have been placed on Earth. But this has just changed! Temporarily for now, but hopefully, more permanently in the near future. Read on to find out all the details.
Monitoring distributed systems is a challenge. While there are established patterns and solutions for monitoring the most common types of applications, there is usually no silver bullet. In this blog post we outline the challenges that we faced when implementing monitoring for one such system, drand.
Drand was recently presented at the North Sec conference! Here is a brief summary of the event and the drand talk, as well as the answers to a few of the interesting questions we received.

The drand team has been hard at work the last couple of months to develop and integrate new and extremely valuable features into the drand codebase: timelock encryption, and multi-frequency support!
This blog post covers the second set of responses we received from League of Entropy members on our question: What’s the value of drand for your organisation and why do you support it!
We asked the League of Entropy members: “what’s the value of drand for you, and why do you support it?” Check out what they said!
