Documentation project:  

1.  Article:  How transaction processing works – This article is a framework and contains details that resemble the process, but are inaccurate in their particulars.  Article needs to be adjusted for accuracy and reorganized for the best flow of details in support of the topic.  The differentiation of mining vs. transaction processing needs to be delineated.  The specifics of the flow of information between nodes needs to be stated precisely.  Editors for this article should feel free to adjust as much as is needed. How can this topic be presented in the most accurate, detailed, and effective way possible?   (website – development – how transaction processing works)

Project type:  Complete or minor corrections.  Posted 2/19/2019

2. Article:  Orientation for developers – Article needed to orient new developers to the Burstcoin developer landscape.  Where to locate resources, platforms, communication channels.  How to participate effectively in the development process.  What information can be provided to a new developer to function as a quick start guide?  No framework article exists, this is a project needing to be completed from the ground up.
