Here is the cliff-notes version of what our team is working on during the month of June so that everyone can better see the progress being made. These updates will not include code or details on the processes that each dev is using, but it should at least provide some insight on the direction that things are going. Please let me know if there is anything that you can see that I can improve on. You can also see github commits and pull requests on the alpha code by visiting the Ravencoin Community Discord channel under the RSS feeds section.

Did you get an answer in discord?

What does increase block size mean and why?

The increase in block size was done primarily to allow more data per block once voting and dividends are implemented.  We expect that these two features alone will create a large number of new transactions, and it is better to make the size change now with the asset layer since it requires a hard fork.  Additionally, raven will be ready in the event that BTC adds features later (that are imported into raven) that requires a bigger block size.
