Dear log, here is my entry for epoch 1600373323…
Even though almost 10 days passed this one might be quite short. Not only because I want it to be live before the stream starts but also because I was focused on almost one thing alone: Testing, testing, testing…
Same old, same old. Maintenance and a few minor support tasks. The ledger is chucking along. I am currently spamming it with a transaction to make sure people have a smooth experience when using CR8. It’s due to the nature of how coinpayments currently works. Other than trying to educate them, there is not much we can do at this stage. Once our volume is better, TX wise and utilization wise, I will come back to them trying to fix it. The changes to our old systems are still pending. I really need to get started on those wallet servers…
People don’t know it yet but I am working on reviving the Foundation Twitter account together with Lazzareo. It’s in the works guys. The goal is to have a nice tweet at least every three days. I know it just makes everything look better.
Matt is making good progress on the Nano Ledger stuff, including token support. Currently getting my environment back to work, in case you missed it on twitter. Once the companion app is done, everything can be integrated into the desktop wallet.
Bittrex has come back to me again regarding more documents for the corporate account. Those are currently being produced, we should be able to apply again next week if everything goes smooth. The process seemed to be super straight forward but took longer than i thought.
I filed the application with gate.io because I came across this tweet:
My reply outperformed theirs pretty quick but that didn’t seem to impress them. However, they say they come back to you within 20 days, which means there is still some time left. Let’s see what they will say, so far they didn’t turn us down.
I guess every exchange out there is pretty busy grabbing a cut of the DeFi stuff…
Backend improvements finally started. I haven’t paid too much attention to it in the past two weeks but saw a demo of the backend changes. Things are heading in the right direction. Super pleased to see Holyk1icks has been introduced as a community leader, a warm welcome from my end as well. Good luck!
The code changes regarding the infrastructure changes are done, once I have some more free time I will fire up some new servers. Because everyone likes new servers. If we are lucky, this will be done before the end of the month.
Most of my time is still eaten up by testing the fixes for the CR8 Wallet. Internally we are at 0.5.5 and my expectation for tonight is: That’s the one. If there is no real showstopper, this gets approved as a new update, gets pushed to the stores, and once it is live everyone needs to go full blast. The soft launch did go well and all metrics look good so far. I hope the partners that are currently working on their stuff will hurry up. Anyways, the app should be ready for onboarding.
If you still haven’t tried it out, grab it from the stores and experience it yourself.
Not much going on, except that the blog is now being pushed on a Thursday before the “Gambling, Crypto and Nonsense” stream on Twitch.
I hope there will be more to speak about next week. I am aware of the overall sentiment is a bit suffering as half the market is pumping the defi craze and we are not. It’s the state of crypto and maybe I am just too old to lose my mind about it…
