  • XCloud is also undergoing final QA. XCloud is a decentralized microservice cloud network for blockchain calls not inherently supported by XRouter and other microservices via XRouter plugins. Examples of XCloud services are blockchain-based plugins such as one that returns a list of Syscoin marketplace listings, third party data plugins such as one that provides access to CMC’s API data, or a custom plugin service you create yourself.
  • The improved and simplified Block DX automated setup is still under development and is expected to begin QA shortly. The new automated setup will allow users to add new wallets or update wallets individually so that all wallets don’t need to be restarted for changes that only apply to a few.
  • Improvements have been made to the way the wallet syncs to lessen the instances of the blockchain getting corrupted (assertion failed errors).
  • The Blocknet Bootstrap has been updated to April 15, 2019 (block 822882).
  • A reminder that Block DX will is now available on AWS Marketplace, offering push-button deployments of Block DX that are pre-configured and have fully synced chains for trading or running a Service Node (view on marketplace). A guide can be found on Discord pinned in the #blockdx-aws channel (thanks again @CryptoXman!).
  • Redactedman has spent this month prioritizing the search for sourcing new talent for upcoming work in the fields of graphic artists, article content writers, and SEO specialists.
