Blockchain Swaps — a PoC Web-based Marketplace!

Slack member ‘Curious Cosmos’ has unveiled a brand new proof-of-concept web marketplace — it is currently in an alpha testing phase, and buying/selling of items is not available until Pangolin or an alternative online payment solution is available.

Blockchain Foundry Outlines Business Licenses on the Blockchain

Here’s an interesting distinction between BCF and some other blockchain organisations: where many projects and companies have great vision about how blockchain technology can be used to make powerful changes across many industries, Blockchain Foundry has focused on actual business use-cases and is using the Syscoin blockchain protocol as its preferred platform.

Check out how Blockchain Foundry would deliver Business Licenses on the blockchain, and how they will cement the implementation of the technology in simple steps — all via the Syscoin blockchain platform.

Summary of the weekly AMA with J

  • J: “3.2 is coming, as @keyare has displayed it will come with a console for all you power users, some minor visual tweaks, bug fixes and possibly something else to be determined between 2 PM and 3 PM PST between myself, Jag, @keyare, and the Romanian Rock God. @einalex Actually I’ll be investigating a Linux release of 3.2 separate to the release of the Mac/Windows ones. If one is coming it will likely come shortly thereafter.”
  • J:”All other things are proceeding as usual, most of my week is being spent shuttling between IBM’s Hyperledger and writing READMEs for our soon to be open sourced works.”
  • J: “Other than that, I got nadaroos about anything else boys and girls — Lode is progressing, I am watching chats re: Seb and Jag hacking together on the SYS4 front, Dan is still off in Columbia or wherever selling illicit goods to make ends meet so it’s good times. ”
  • J:”I’m reasonably certain that EVM-code is able to interact with SYS4 applications.”
  • J:“So a) we may not actually be doing a release of BMD 3.3 (we are still on board for a 3.2. Internal testing has not cleared quite yet. I’ve been gently informed. b) BMD 3.3 is not intended to be a white labelled wallet. It was previously intended to change the UI to have assets go against addresses. However it was discovered that implementing that change would lead to a hard fork and we wanted to avoid yet another one of those at this time. As a result an alternative method of implementing what we need to support LODE was discussed (3.3 was intended to support LODE’s use case).”
