Eyes at ISAAC
If you have not seen yet, our team released the second part to the ISAAC release at the end of last week!
The second release showcases to the community our development of the BOS consensus protocol.
Although this release has a slightly more technical tone to it, it essentially illustrates our current progress, interrogating the theory with different scenarios.
We wish to reiterate our dedication to developing a robust consensus protocol to support the BOS environment.
When you feel how depressingly slowly you climb it’s well to remember that Things Take Time.”

Sharing is caring
Ongoing research to build our BOS platform requires countless reading of documentation, theories, and developments. In doing so, our Dev team have translated various academic papers (unfortunately into Korean only).
In line with our philosophy of spreading blockchain knowledge to the world, we decided to share these translations with the community via our homepage.
Although to the global community, this might not mean much, but we hope it further demonstrates our dedication to creating a robust platform; the journey of our trail of thoughts, tasks, and ideas, to implement the BOS platform.
Wallet work is ongoing and our team have released the first prototype of our mobile wallet for internal testing.
The prototype currently performs the following functions:
- Create Wallet
- Import Wallet
- Send Transaction
We aim to finalized our internal testing and release the source code soon to the public via Github — please keep an eye out for it!
Along with platform and applications development, we are also continuously looking to improve our work in other areas as well — Communications management is an area we have most recently focused on.
We understand the difficulty it has been to find information on BOScoin, as previously our communications were managed via different forums, and not completely synchronized.
Last week we had our Service Design team presenting the communications refresh to have our website as the single point of reference for official BOS information, whereby our other official channels would follow from that.
In addition, we aim to populate our website with a more complete set of BOS information including updated FAQs, Development page, refreshed About Us page to name a few.
We hope yoy see this a a step in the right direction and appreciate your patience in the mean time.
Have you eaten yet?
In Korean, it translates as “밥먹었어?” — which is a form of greeting.
