July Fourth marks the one year anniversary of the genesis of the HardFork Series project! With some initial brainstorming between @dougkarr and @bakerchristopher, on July 4, 2017 Doug Karr contacted @ericvancewalton on Steemit Chat proposing a collaboration. The first call between the two happened just a few days later on the 8th. Shortly after our first team call occurred including Christopher James Baker and the project gathered STEEM from there.
We made steady progress through the summer of 2017, raising the funds necessary to produce the teaser trailer on Steemit and subsequently debuting that trailer in Lisbon at SteemFest 2. The HardFork team closed out 2017 on a very positive note with a banner raise from the DASH DAO to help fuel the continued creative development.
So far, 2018 has proven to be a banner year for us. Thanks to HardFork producer and star, Naomi Brockwell (@skycorridors) we were featured in Forbes magazine and many other blockchain-based media podcasts and publications. In the past year, the project has grown well beyond the original vision, evolving into an entire HardFork multiverse encompassing the series and digital asset based AR/RPG games in development.
Another extremely exciting milestone was achieved during Eric’s last visit to New York to work on script development… half of season one has been completed! To celebrate this, the core HardFork team (minus Matthew Niemerg, who was greatly missed) gathered at Fornino in Brooklyn to enjoy pizza, lots of garlic-laden appetizers on a rare occasion when most of our decentralized members were in the same city at the same time!
It’s been an incredibly exciting creative process the last few months building out the HardFork Universe, working round-the-clock to write the scripts/creative, and moving towards getting HardFork out into the world and bringing the multiverse to market.
We’re so thankful and thrilled to be on this journey with you all!
Yours in the Chain,
More exciting developments to share soon!

We'd also love it if people posted about their ideas on Steemit using the #hardforkseries tag, we just want to point out that in order to avoid any liability that we will be assuming everything posted within that tag is intended to be a derivative work of the HardFork series and so the HardFork team cannot be liable for any apparent similarities between the content and the final product.
