The Loopring Foundation loved the work we had done with them, and shared our vision for a better decentralized exchange experience. We received funding in April to build Dolomite. We had a couple of us full time, and a team of interns for the summer to help build out the initial code base.
We rented a house out in the Poconos that could sleep 8 and we all spent 10-14 hours a day coding in what was the most productive environment I've ever been in. Incredible energy, and it led to some great ideas.
