Safex Cash/Token Wallet Release
During the last week we published a release of the Safex Wallet for Cash/Tokens
The download for the wallets link above^^: Windows, MacOS, and Linux
The release was overly successful. We’ve identified several bugs related to some platform configurations, the feed back has been invaluable to addressing any issues some people have encountered. In addition, we’ve got a list of ideas and suggestions to add as features for a future release.
If anyone has a problem with the wallet please use the support channel on this forum where the development team can review and address any issues you can describe to us.
You can use the Safex Bug Reporting Guideline.
@Rich.bate has also prepared some usage videos:

Safex Marketplace Proof of Concept Phase
The past week seen the following implementations fulfilled:
- Implemented interest calculation
redemption of revenue
- Updated txin_to_script with explicit command designation, for easier processing of inputs
- Updated token unlock command processing with interest value check
- Updated core tests with token unlock interest
Furthermore, Stefan added an interface to check locked tokens for a given interval on the safexd node software. In addition to adding wallet commands for creating
lock token and
unlock token functions for user cli testing.
The code Marko has already implemented for revenue, locking, unlocking, and calculations are now being put to use for the end user setting.
Golang Libraries: V8 Wallet Specifications
This step is key for rapidly delivering user facing applications that interface with the safex blockchain.
The Golang libraries are now going into a user stories phase, so that functionality can be extended to reflect the way the application layer will require of the interaction with the blockchain.
May 16th Migration Script Run
If you are planning to time a migration: the script will be run sometime after 8:00pm Central European Time on May 16th, until the next time. This should be clear information for you to prepare in case you were standing by with the migration from the bitcoin blockchain over the safex token and cash.
Refreshed marketing initiative
Last week saw the start of our latest recruit, Nikola, who has joined our graphics and media team.
Now that Nikola has settled in, his first focus will be to compile an updated branding guideline. We felt this was a necessary step as it helps keep future graphic and marketing work consistent.
In addition to the brand guidelines, Nikola will also start on a library of assets needed for some upcoming marketing material. This we expect will take several weeks to complete.
Our short term focus here is to produce a range of marketing materials that the community can use to help promote Safex.
The materials include:
- Three short explainer videos focusing on different aspects of Safex
- One-page printable explainer PDF
- Infographics and social banners
Scripts are currently underway for the explainer videos and will hopefully be signed off by the end of the week.
Of course, if you have any suggestions as to what else we can produce then please feel free to leave a comment.
The updated marketing materials tie in with our next subject - the website. We realize that the website is in need of an update since it has not been updated to reflect the content available from the safex project, especially being close to so many key milestones.
Last week the team put the focus on what is required for the new website. From this, we were able to plan out a site structure, content strategy, and an SEO strategy. As well as merchant/investor/user onboarding strategies.
Currently, the content is being wireframed which will then be passed to the graphics team to visualize. Again, much like the graphics collateral, this will be a multi-week project which we hope to update you on in a few weeks time.
