Dear log here is my entry for epoch 1596491939,
this time right on spot but this time it was easy because sadly this might be a short one. Let’s see…
NOTE: When I started to write this, it was in fact Monday morning… I just got sidetracked.
CSCL / CasinoCoin
In short: Everything I had planned for the last week didn’t happen. I am not really surprised by that, I am pretty much used to it. Leaves a whole chunk of untouched tasks open. My main task is still the handling of the wallet servers. Reports of wallets being slow at launch came up and I think I know why. The systems don’t seem to do much but somehow react slow to wallet connections. I need to look into this. All tests and tweaks regarding the wallet servers have been moved into this week, the same goes for testing of all other systems that are about to move. Other than maintenance and support, nothing major happened.
I unlocked a couple of CRN accounts. If yours is still locked and should be unlocked right away, please ping me on Discord. The CSCInfo fix is still pending and the dev that will deal with it is currently working on something he needs to deliver first. I will see if anything can be re-scheduled but can’t promise anything, as we need a couple of things done first. I know I sound like a broken record. I will have some conversations about this.
Again: You won’t miss any payouts, the first round after activation will pay out everything that was burnt so far. Please keep in mind, while the activation seems little effort from the outside, it requires some people (like me) 2-3 days of preparation. The current workload is pretty high, in fact it killed my sleep pattern again and made me stop running as I am glued to my desk again. (insert sad Pepe here)
That brings up the fair question of what I actually did the whole week and most people won’t be surprised: I did spend almost the entire week in calls, integration support, additional wallet testing, and backend tweaking. The most exciting part was the PSP integration, related to testing crypto-to-crypto payments. It’s a smooth in-wallet exchange. Tested this a couple of times now and curious to see how players will experience it. Maybe this tweet is giving away what the current progress is on the fight with the stores is:
The main goal last week was to ensure that casinos get “seamless” integrations done. That means depositing into your casino account works directly from the wallet. Those who tested the BRM and CSCLotto might remember what I mean. The goal is not only to have casinos accepting CR8, the goal is to have them listed in the CR8 wallet in a comfortable way to get your coins in. This
Nothing special last week, the API is working great so far. Additional changes have been made, only small tweaks to got some operational costs down. Andrew came up with a really sweet idea and the chance is high we will see something no one would have expected, use-case wise. I hate to be vague, I just want to transport the message that he has some really promising conversation ongoing. It makes a lot of sense and he technically came across it by accident. The possible use-cases for TT are endless.
The Infrastructure has been mapped out and will allow us to scale up pretty quick and fairly cheap. It will also bring our uptime in a range of “four and a half nines” and “five nines”. I think we can even do seven nines but I would refrain from saying that out loud, until this is running for at least two to three years and proved itself. I tested AWS for the whole system but will stop using them. Unlike my initial thought, AWS will be more expensive than a mix of bare metal and VPS systems.
People are still arguing about exchange listings. In the past four weeks, this topic got pretty big, again. I assume that’s mainly because of the “bull run” we currently experience. Pretty much everything has been said about it already (check this) from my point of view.
Word on discord is that the community is willing to collect funds and donate it towards a listing. I just want to point out a few things again. We can get on a lot of Top30 to Top75 exchanges for ~2BTC. But personally I doubt that will help and the funds would be wasted. If the community is donating towards a specific listing, I will follow suit and apply. I just don’t want anyone to complain if we and up in another WhiteBit situation.
If ~5BTC gets collected, I would approach a specific Top20 exchange that would benefit us and could actually work. The offer is up. As this is a currently open application under NDA, I can not disclose which one I am talking about. I also resubmitted our Bittrex application. Due to some internal changes on Bittrex, we have to resubmit on Bittrex Global. We are in the process of getting the required cooperate account at the moment. I will drop a note when we send the application again.
Other, private stuff
The great eGF Sports Night was quite some fun and success. At least I do think so. We gave away a couple of thousand GFG’s and three packs of GFG branded merch. A small selection of highlights can be found on my channel showing our fabulous hit of 50kGFG
There is some more news about this. As you might have noticed the channel name switched to SlotBrosTV, a new Twitter popped up, and a wild Discord server appeared. You should follow all those accounts and join our discord, as the advertising will be reduced on the CSC and GFG servers. Seriously, follow us on Twitch and join the Discord!
In case you didn’t figure it by now, great things are coming. Matt joined me and we will start to stream regular in the next 2 weeks, bringing you guys some slot and live-game action. We will focus mostly on crypto casinos. Everything is in the works and I hope we will have some test streams this week. We are working on a feature that NO OTHER stream on twitch currently offers and it will put viewer interaction to the next level! Just to be clear, this is happening in our free time.
It would be highly appreciated if would check by and stick around with us! The schedule is yet to be announced.
