High-level summary

This week, the Hydra team published together with Obsidian Systems a light paper on our "Hydra for Payments" project (Link). They have created a draft scope RFP for the external audit and worked with the internal audit team to clear up the specification. From the development side, they have fixed a bug with chain-following when using persistence and improved logs for better observability of hydra-node processes.
