Ecological. To do this, we plan to commit our funds to growth, make Harmony the best scaling network possible, and resolve issues.”
Finally, Harmony promises to provide a more detailed update in the coming days and find a mechanism to ensure the correct deployment of the funds allocated to restore the lost users.
