Community Update — May 11, 2018
Ledger, new photos, consensus and dev updates. 🚀
We have a few exciting updates to share, including Ledger wallet support, a brand new Fintech series and Consensus 2018!
Ledger for Tabby Pay = Shipped! 🚀
Using Tabby Pay with a Ledger wallet is just as easy as using MetaMask to securely send and receive payments with peace of mind. And now that we’ve integrated support for Ledger hardware wallets, it will be straightforward to integrate Ledger support into future contracts as well.
We’re going to Consensus 2018.
That’s right! A few members from the BlockCAT team, including Eric, Justin and Adrian will be attending Consensus 2018 in NYC next week.
Some of our biggest goals with the conference are to connect with other leaders in the blockchain space, share what we’ve learned about building and launching dApps on the Ethereum mainnet and gain a better understanding of where the market facing trends are heading.
We already have a number of off-site meetings booked, but we’d love to meet with any members of the community who will also be attending. Simply shoot us a tweet and we’ll book a time to chat!
Fintech News Series
This week we also kicked off an ongoing Fintech blog-series with Accelerate Okanagan to help educate and bring awareness of blockchain and cryptocurrency to the local and provincial tech community.
This bi-monthly series will help readers separate fact from fiction in order to truly understand the benefits and implications of utilizing blockchain tech in the financial services industry.
A few eagle-eyed community members couldn’t help but notice that the UI we were working on this week was aptly titled ‘Tabby Rewards’, which is our next smart contract.
Development and UX work is well underway to get this product ready for beta testing.
We’re excited to share a lot more details on this product after we return from Consensus!
