Wallet - Standalone (Safex Cash/Token Only (No Migration or Bitcoin))
The Wallet repository has seen a beta release internally where ~20 team members got a chance to use and test the wallet. We came back with several improvements and minor bugs in UX over the weekend that are now being dealt with. Additional work involved finishing and testing progress bar when synchronizing and ring size adjustment.
Note: this wallet is standalone purely safex cash and tokens, it will not support Bitcoin or the Migration process. It is intended to be introduced to new users, rather than cluttering the discussion points about other convoluted concepts in the legacy part of the story: i.e. bitcoin and safex from bitcoin’s blockchain.
Safex Marketplace: Proof of Concept Phase
Further details have been added to the implementation document. Some mechanics are being defined such as: a minimum number of Tokens will need to be locked in, a duration that must be established before distributions can be realized, the locking and unlocking transaction implementation specification.
The marketplace mechanics are being defined as a scripting system on its own transaction type.
txin_to_script and within held are the specific instructions to the blockchain how to act on the data involved. Wether it is related to a sale of an item, locking of a token, account creation, etc.
A recap from the QA interview from February 5th: we are building out the marketplace functionality piece by piece through the proof of concepts phase. After testing and acquisition of the methods, we will combine the components into a whole full functioning system that operates in the way that establishes the marketplace of our vision.
Safexd - Safex Node
Issues with the build system have been resolved now for all major platforms: Ubuntu, Windows, and now finally MacOS: the
Protobuf libraries are integrated and the build is working on all platforms. New build targets for building
safexd with protobuf are also added.
Furthermore, there was a cleanup of the unused RingCT code that is now replaced in favor of bulletproofs. We have not yet activated bulletproofs; however, the RingCT code is not necessary either way. A new branch is established for this:
The past week saw work on
integrating Badger DB, a key value store for the wallet libraries. Badger is a pure golang implementation of an in memory key-value store, for use in storing both cached blocks and transactions, as well as user keys.
New designs for the safex.io website are completed, and work on the full redesign of the safex.io website is underway. This is going to be a React project based on Next.js framework, which will allow us to have a much faster loading time than the previous website
due to server side rendering.
An intermediate update to the website with clearer information has been placed into development as well. This initial redesign will cover needed details until the true release of the fully redesigned safex.io website is completed.
There are still ~5 days left in the fundraiser to get listed on more exchanges promptly.
Which equates to just under ~2.0 bitcoins; we encourage you to donate whatever you can, as all proceeds will be used to negotiate listing on exchanges for Safex Cash and Token. (the new coins only) We have a handful of targets that we’ll approach. Note: we have an offer from a 10m$ daily volume exchange requesting 5 btc to list, for example. We want to land the best bang for the buck.
Much appreciation to and from the community on this initiative.
