Hello to the community!
This announcement is to communicate Secret, LLC's plan to phase out the Puzzle brand and move forward with our new branding: secretnodes.com. Here is some rationale and a rough plan moving forward!
What is/was Puzzle?
Puzzle was the first open source explorer with a sole focus on Secret Network. Since its launch, we've added a number of important new features related to staking, governance, and more!
We are opting to use Secretnodes.com going forward primarily because it’s the strongest brand / keyword we own. We have used the "secretnodes" branding since 2018 and look forward to expanding it!
We believe (anything)node or (anything)nodes .com are strong keywords for crypto and make more sense going forward than Puzzle.
At some point in the future, we will update our Puzzle open source repo to be in a more suitable state for others to fork (primarily providing better documentation). As for open source for new developments, we are still deciding how we want to proceed on that front. We are currently leaning towards open sourcing the front end of our product and maintaining that repo while keeping the backend private. This is ProtonMail's approach to open-source, for example.
So what is secretnodes.com?
With secretnodes.com, we are creating a privacy-focused Swiss army knife, making it easier for people to interact with popular contracts on Secret Network as well as explore and understand on-chain data. Beyond what we've said here, and as much as we want to tell you more about these plans, we'd rather show you. 👀
