Stipend Blockchain, CPU ISSUE FIXED & Platform Deposit/Withdraws
This week I again primarily focused on the blockchain. We had a big breakthrough in regards to the wallets in particular as we were able to finally diagnose and fix the error in regards to the exorbitant CPU usage that the wallet was taking up. We’re currently working on compiling the Mac version of the wallet but we’ll be releasing the update as soon as possible.
Deposit/Withdraw done / UI&UX Improvements / Refactor to REST API
A couple of interesting changes happened.
First, we’ve decided to go with Vue sooner than later – our initial goal was to refactor application later to React/Vue, but we decided that it’s probably best if we do it right now and avoid having to do that big refactor while in production. Our frontend developer challenge ended and we’ve hired the frontend developer that we liked the most! He’s part of the Stipend now :slightly_smiling_face:
Right now, platform-wise we’re mostly looking at the following things:
1) Backend is now being refactored to REST API (w/ JSON) – Felix
2) Frontend with Vue is being built up from scratch – Excalii
3) New UI/UX mockups are getting produces on a daily basis – Stas
As soon as 1), 2) and 3) meet up together at the same place, we’ll have alpha fully done.
This switch to SPA (Single Page Application) will slow it down just a bit but the benefits overweigh that.
Press Releases ! Exchange Listing Situation, Support and Coding!
Well, this week we mainly focused on having multiple Press Releases published on different platforms to increase awareness and get as much attention towards Stipend as possible since the Pre-Alpha release is on the corner ! We are also getting back to the big exchanges that asked for “Let’s talk together when the project is more established” and are received a very well response so far.
Press Releases :
We will publish an extensive list of exchanges in the couple next week that we have being talk to, it’s not that stretched to say that Stipend will be listed before the Reward Reduction !
FREELANCER PARTNER FOCUS ! Apollon Listing ! SPD TO FIAT Partnership.
Hi everyone still trying to get back to the numerous companies, governments and people we met at Dubai, and so far only great feedback about the platform and how we can work together on the long run. We also had the chance to be approached with big names both from the freelance side and the Crypto to Fiat area that we were lacking so the feature of one click SPD to FIAT is implemented since day 1 from launch.
What was this week about?
Stipend After the FutureBlockchainSummit : FutureBlockchainSummit had numerous benefits for the project both on the legal and corporate side, we do think that we should focus on more exhibitions in the near future especially freelance/outsource/block-chain summits, still getting back to the different entities we met at Dubai and so far only good feedback overall.
Stipend to Fiat Partnership : As a result of Dubai we got contacted with the company behind the Fiat conversion for most of the famous Exchanges and we are talking out a partnership as we speak to allow an SPD -> Fiat | Fiat -> SPD conversion since day 1 at launch. The end goal is of course to be able to get the SPD DEBIT CARD out as a result of the partnership.
Stipend – As a tool for Outsourcing Companies : We met numerous companies specialized in Outsourcing some are doing over 1 Billion in Freelance jobs on a yearly basis, they expressed a deep interest and we are now talking on a daily basis, they will be granted an access during the Alpha/Beta to test out the platform if everything goes well we will start with a 10% of their whole market as a first step of the contract at the same time bringing a huge volume since early days of launch !
Apollon Partnership : We are officially added to Apollon after multiple months of work, there should be a webinar in the upcoming days to present the process of hosting a masternode in less than 40 sec using the Apollon platform !
Stipend Shop : As you all know we have a shop now to support the team, we are planing to add a new tshirt design every week but we didn’t had time this week !
