We've Produced a Block

We have finally produced a block. To celebrate we minted the Learn token. This will eventually be used as the rewards for our learning management system. We distributed it to some lucky people that entered our competition via Twitter. Congrats to those that hold it currently, there will be a buy back at some point in time.
