Notion board for Liker Land task update

During today’s meeting, we initiated some housekeeping matters, particularly for any new participants. This gathering marks our monthly Community call, scheduled for the first Monday of each month. It’s an occasion where we convene to share updates on the Chain itself, along with any application updates from the Liker Land team.

In the previous month, the Liker Land team initiated the practice of documenting the LikeCoin chain-related tasks on Notion. All participants are encouraged to access this dashboard for transparency and insight into our activities. During the last month, our focus primarily centered on addressing the gas fee issue that had been raised previously. Detailed information regarding this can be found on the Notion board. If you’re interested in delving deeper into topics such as the monthly gas fee report, this information will be shared in the community call chat channel. Any further actions resulting from the investigation can also be discussed in the validator channel. William is currently overseeing this task.
