We are moving to Discord

With messages no longer being retained and the inability to invite new members, we have outgrown the Slack platform for the Stratis Community. This is an issue that we are now solving.
As a result, we have selected Discord as our new community platform. This is a pivotal step in enabling our community to further grow, and we encourage developers to join and collaborate.
Discord boasts a number of key features; unlimited number of users, message retention and increased moderation.
Our existing Slack workspace will remain open, however, over the coming weeks, we will close the Slack workspace. This will be communicated in due course.
We would like to welcome everyone to join us in our new Discord.
