Dear Tezos community,

Happy New Year once again to the entire Tezos ecosystem! We are excited to move into 2020 with momentum to create another incredible year of growth for the Tezos community and progress for the Tezos protocol.

I would like to remind the community that there are just 8 days remaining in the exploration vote period for the Carthage 2.0 proposal. We encourage all bakers to make their voices heard as we work together to build the future of Tezos.

This week, TQ Tezos and Wave Financial teamed up to publish a report on “The State of Digital Securities,” which dives deep into the advantages, challenges, regulations, and key offerings of blockchain-based digital securities (“security tokens”). The report offers an exciting forecast of what to expect in the digital securities space in 2020 and beyond, so be sure to check it out!

We are also thrilled to announce the launch of Tezos Israel, an entity and Innovation Lab to educate, train, and grow the Tezos ecosystem in Israel. Welcome, Tezos Israel!

Best regards,
Ryan

FAQs
I just got a new device – how do I set up two-factor authentication?
The New Year often means receiving and beginning to operate new devices. We encourage all Tezos community members to adopt two-factor authentication as a means of securing their private data. Follow the instructions in the Tezos Foundation guide to ”Setting Up Two-Factor Authentication” here to get your device secured for 2020 and beyond.
