To help spread the word about contracts and its potential, the Open Trust Fabric is offering a number of engagement initiatives. These include public reports, webinars, interesting articles to check, as well as more tailored initiatives. We are also making a comprehensive set of educational resources, such as an introduction to GDP and Contracts and FAQs, available on our website. Here you can explore the options.
