PolySwarm started out with Medium as its content publishing tool. We created great, informative content; from stories on what it's like to be a woman in cybersecurity, to deep dives into technical topics like the 'commit and reveal scheme' on blockchain (and how its leveraged on PolySwarm). Recently, we created a new blog within the PolySwarm's web ecosystem, blog.polyswarm.io. This is where we will be publishing content moving forward.
