Syscoin, and BCF News

Syscoin community starts trial month in Discord messaging service.

The Discord trial month has started! With brand new features like role assignments for various teams and a Syscoin tipping bot, the community is ready to dip their toes in the water. Discord allows us to onboard new community members at a faster rate than Slack (unfortunately, the Slack invite process is much slower and requires manual approval). One of many other Discord advantages is that the Syscoin community will no longer be restricted to 10K messages; Slack’s messaging storage limit quickly became restrictive with the growing Syscoin community.

Roadmap Update

Even though the Christmas and celebration period passed, all teams have progressed steadily towards their goals. Most notably, Syscoin 4 reached the stunning 70% mark. Furthermore, community developer “thebotguy” has begun his project of translating the Syscoin client to GO.

Syscoin Fusion Beta released

Syscoin Fusion is a Whitelabel asset wallet. If you create a SYS3 token, you can customize Fusion to display only your individual SYS3 token and create a custom build wallet for your token to distribute to your community. Fusion can also be soft-modified using the configuration files.

Fusion Beta is now available. Fusion uses the same Syscoin folder and .dat files as BM and QT. Be sure to make a backup before testing. The source code is available at the link above for perusal and modification if you feel so inclined!

Syscoin Development Team (SDT) proposes further development of Blockmarket Web (the team behind Syscoin core, Syshub and Fusion)

From the proposal: ‘’A version of Blockmarket Web was under development for the entirety of 2017 on the SYS2 platform so there is a lot of work already done on the project. Development was paused during 2018 in favour of a project to be done by another team.

The SDT wishes to reignite development on Blockmarket Web on the SYS4 platform. It requires complete refactoring for SYS4 and development will be continuous.

Blockmarket Web Phase 1 will use Syscoin as an incentive model to list/purchase items. It will be fully scaleable. It will offer payment in fiat and other cryptocurrencies for an additional fee, but payment in Syscoin will always be free. In order to maintain real-time transactions, listings and offer edits, offers will be written to an index, then written to the blockchain as a Merkle hash with offchain anchors. Since SYS4 includes EVM, many new functions can be created and offloaded to the EVM layer.

Blockmarket Web Phase 2 will write offer data to distributed file storage on masternodes. This will depend on the scope of SYS4.

Development on Blockmarket Web will be ongoing.’’

First pooled Syscoin masternode goes live on MN2.io

App.mn2.io provides Syscoin masternode services like hosting (pay with Syscoin), tax calculation for rewards and a notification system. Since January 18th, the community is enjoying a brand new feature called masternode pooling. Pooling allows for individuals to pool their Syscoin together to meet the collateral requirements of 100k Syscoin required to host a masternode. Users can withdraw their coins at any given moment and payouts are made on a daily basis, proportional to the number of coins they have contributed to the pool.

The first MN2.io node is now live and working seamlessly. For questions or further guidance please join the #mn²io channel on the Syscoin Discord!

Summary of the weekly AMA with Dan

D: The way we’ve been working our strategy is to improve SYS4 in ways we see our real world clients indicating they have use cases for. We believe that is the way this tech is going to drive real value, that’s always been our perspective from the inception of SYS. That strategy is tied into our Archos partnership as well. SYS is part of the larger, blockchain-enabled apps platform we envision for those devices and Archos is aligned in that. We also use facets of the service business we run to shop SYS into use cases.
