**Disclaimer**: This is meant as a brief overview the state of OpenSeed and its development. This is meant to catalog progress and not to be seen as an official announcement from our team. Official press releases will be handled by the @openseed account and will have a more polished appearance. # Intro For those new to the project, welcome. OpenSeed is a cross platform protocol and tool kit designed to help developers streamline their process by offering data persistence through the merging of on and off chain functionality. We are in our fourth week of officially existing as a project though OpenSeed has existed to one extent or another well before our official announcement. It is currently being developed by the OpenSeed team and with suggestions from the community.

However, the current code base isn't ready for deployment so for those wanting to spin up their own server we're not there yet.
