What ever happened to LC blockchain?

The question is almost too big to answer, akin to asking about file 
systems or sockets. The range of applications for blockchains are 
currently too big to count, and only just beginning.

As far as a role for LC, I've seen some interest from LC users but 
nothing very specific, and nothing along the lines of libraries or 
tooling yet.

I am meeting with another LC user with an interest in this space next 
week.  If anything noteworthy comes up I'll report back.

In the meantime, my own interest is mostly centered around the corner of 
the Ethereum world focused on smart contracts. I have no interest in 
speculative psuedo-currency applications, but now that Eth2 is running 
and gas fees are plummeting, there's a universe of opportunity in smart 
contracts. At the moment nearly all of that work is limited to one 
language, Solidity, so that and studying the underlying protocols and 
data structures of Ethereum nodes have been where my time in this space 
has been invested.
