TEAM EXPANSION ! STIPEND IS GOING IN THE FUTURE BLOCKCHAIN SUMMIT AT DUBAI WORLD TRADE CENTER ! Press Release of Stipend On multiple News Websites ! Multiple Listings ! While keeping the support team up to help the community.
Stipend Blockchain V 188.8.131.52
So essentially this week I focused more on the blockchain/wallet and the release of v184.108.40.206, which fixed and improved many of the issues that people have been experiencing throughout. As a whole, it helped to stabilize the network and especially improve staking in its entirety through the reduction of orphans and a higher frequency of rewards on par with what individuals should be experiencing.
This coming week I’ll continue to rework the blockchain/wallet, probably implementing a bit of a redesign of the GUI and more optimization to help ensure the safety and stability of the network as a whole.
Here’s the new wallet update. Fixes/improves a few different things that were giving people issues
- Increased Syncing Rate
- More Stable PoS/Less Orphans
- Remove Darksend from Dashboard
- Lowers Average CPU Usage
- Fixes Misc Issues
We’ll get out a Mac update in a bit. In order to update, simply download the new cold (local) wallet for your respective OS (Windows, Mac, Linux), and replace your current wallet. There is no need to delete any files in your data folder, simply replace the current application with the new one.
If you are running a Masternode, simply make sure to update your VPS as well. Simply copy and paste the following line of text into your VPS console if you’re currently located in the same directory as your Stipend daemon. After this, to get your Masternode up and running again, simply restart it from your cold (local) wallet using the “Masternode” tab found within. Let me know if you guys have any problems! I’ll try and help all that I can!:
killall stipendd; sleep 2; sudo rm stipendd; sudo rm ~/.stipend/debug.log; wget https://github.com/Stipend-Developer/stipend/releases/download/1.0.9/precompiled-daemon-1.0.9.zip; unzip precompiled-daemon-1.0.9.zip; rm precompiled-daemon-1.0.9.zip; ./stipendd –daemon; sleep 3; ./stipendd getinfo
Team Expansion / UI&UX Improvements
Hi Stipend Community! So in the past week, the rest of the team and I went back to the drawing board (for a bit!) and we talked about expanding the team even more by hiring additional people to make the product more beautiful and speed up the development as well.
So what we did is we onboarded an UI/UX designer (@Stas) with whom we’ll go through every page in a lot of detail and with his help/feedback and our ideas we’ll create exact user interfaces/HQ mockups on how every page should look like in the end. This said, we still have rights to improve them even more in the future (hope you don’t mind this, hehe), so I wouldn’t necessarily call these a final designs, but definitely really close to that.
We started with home page as that page was definitely missing some artistic touches (in fact it was more of a placeholder than anything else) and the mockup is nearly complete so we won’t show it right now, but we will show it next week alongside other mockups!
Once the mockup is done, we’ll send that to web design team to build it. We’re also looking to hire someone for this position in the coming days/week as well!
Vortex did a few pages in the meantime as well, which are a big help as I can continue to wire up the functionality.
As far as alpha is concerned, more time went into logistics of opening new positions, onboarding the UI/UX member and planning it all out than I’m willing to admit. That said, I still managed to refactor the backend code slightly and write in the functionality of hiring someone after the interview. I however lack proper/nicer views to show that in all it’s glory yet so it’ll have to wait for a bit!
All in all, I’m really happy with this slight team expansion.
Press Releases ! Exchange Listing Situation, Support and Coding!
Well, this week we mainly focused on the wallet update, we had some productive talks with some exchanges and might be interested in the next couple of days/weeks, all the majore exchanges are responding favorably but asking us to reach them after 3 weeks once the project has over 3 months of it’s life cycle.
But we are still looking for an opportunity, like after some research CryptalDash seems to be a very promising exchange and we will be listed this month “mostly gained awareness of the project with this kind of listings” https://www.cryptaldash.com/new-coin-listing
What was this week about?
I’m still doing support on a daily-basis, building-up some MN for people with teamviewer, solving daily issues and supporting the discord.
As community manager, I also started bringing people to our official Reddit, so as to get more followers and a good activity over there.
On the coding side, went through blockchain code and I am trying new features for wallets in local, that might be released later on.
I also did some fixes on the website & on the official explorer (which was down for few hours this week).
What will next week be about?
Support will continue, but there are less and less issues in this area.
This week will be about listings & investors relations mostly, as we are in contact with investors and exchanges.
Daily stuff will continue as well this week, support, codes, improvement, features test, ideas, whitepaper.
