Stipend Blockchain, Explorer Improvements
This week I primarily focused again on the blockchain, as well as the wallets, diagnosing a few individual errors and worked on CPU optimization with them. My main efforts were primarily focused this week on the improvement and development of the explorer, in which I reindexed the chain in its entirety and added a few helpful features. More so than this, though, I upgraded the server a bit and improved its stability, so we shouldn’t have any problems in that regard in the near future.
Wrapping up the BackEnd of the Alpha/ UI&UX Improvements
My time nowadays is usually spent on modifying/thinking what else do I need to modify for this new architecture (SPA web app) to work.
In the past week, I’ve been working on a document of what frontend needs from the REST API and I’m going through that list and modifying/adding things (endpoints, responses, etc).
Next to that I’ve also been re-structuring (slightly) the database – optimized somethings for scale pretty much, but nothing will be apparent in the near future though.
However as frontend isn’t fully done yet (the UI side), I can at this point only try my best to anticipate things that will be needed. I’m going to do this “solo” work for a few more days and then Excalii and I will actually start consuming the backend on the frontend so at that point we’ll see if I need to deviate a bit and change something else.
Press Releases ! Exchange Listing Developments, Support and Coding!
Well, this week we mainly focused on getting something back from the Exchanges we are in contact with, we got some good feedback back but we can’t yet announce until it’s official, we are doing everything we can to push that agenda as fast as possible ! Pushing also more Press Releases in the near feature to announce the Platform Release & The end of PoW !
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 !
STIPEND MALTA BLOCKCHAIN SUMMIT ! Marketing Move after 210k Block ! SPD TO FIAT Partnership.
Hi everyone development continues both on the Alpha side and the Blockchain side, aware of the latest issues we are already on track to fix them as soon as possible especially with the next 210k milestone coming up.
The numerous companies, governments and people we met at Dubai are waiting now for a the launch and this is why we’ve been pushing the platform development lately, and we wish to thank everyone supporting us !
What was this week about?
Stipend As Speaker at Malta Blockchain Summit : Stipend has been invited to the Famous Malta Blockchain Summit to represent the Masternode & Pos Projects, someone from the team will be delegated to talk about : “Masternode/Proof Of Stake and their benefits both as an economical equilibrium and a better eco-solution securing the Blockchain network overall” while talking about what the Stipend Platform is doing. https://cryptoaffiliateconf.com/
Stipend After the FutureBlockchainSummit : FutureBlockchainSummit had numerous benefits for the project both on the legal and corporate side, now is time to deliver and get the platform out sooner than later, 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. We are still working on the partnership as of now, wish we can get better updates but it has only been a week.
Stipend – Entreprise Edition : The idea evolved and shaped after the last events, getting Stipend to start making a special edition for companies that are involved in the Outsourcing business they expressed a deep interest and we are now talking on a daily basis with a large number of real companies, 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 !
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 !
Shop link : https://shop.spreadshirt.com/stipend/
What will this week be about?
Focus on followups of the FutureBlockchainSummit event and try to get some tasks done on the legal side of Stipend (SEC).
Freelance Partnership’s Update
Some of you may not be aware of this but for the past few months after the Partnership Team got formed I’ve been quietly growing a relationship with the Freelancer Union Wisconsin Branch https://www.freelancersunion.org/ (the Freelancer Union represents 57 Million Freelancers in the US and does not have much international presence).
Today when I talked to the Freelancer Union representative from WI he was “extremely excited about Stipend and the use of smart contracts to solve payment problems!!” The feedback I received was that freelances are seeking the solutions that Stipend is actually solving :
- 1) Supply Work
- 2) Manage Payments
- 3) Provide insurance (professional and personal) Coverage.
I’m very excited about meeting with the WI branch again once Alpha is launched and feel confident that this is a path to the National Organization (57Millions US Freelancer). If anyone has additional comments or advice on connecting with Freelancers at mass I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Please feel free to PM me or message in other channels as needed.
