Crown development meeting minutes 24/10/2019
Just the facts, ma’am
Present: Artem, Ashot, walkjivefly, crowncoin-knight
- Artem is happy to continue hosting the weekly development meetings.
- Artem has a contract with someone else but will continue developing the NFT framework on a best-effort basis. He will have very little spare time until 6 November but thinks he’ll be able to dedicate 10 hours per week to Crown thereafter. He has committed to delivering the elements discussed in Discord which currently have approximately the following levels of completion -
* NFT Core — 100%
* NFT Registration — 100%
* NFT Protocols Registration — 70%
* Bitcore NFT support for web-development — 40%
- We are not announcing a target NFT testnet release date because he is unable to guarantee how much time he will have available for Crown.
- Artem will make a development proposal this month at the discretion of the community. If there is nothing the community thinks is more important he will submit for half of the 50% development portion of the superblock.
- Ashot has another contract and is able to spend about 10 hours a week on Crown. He has the new codebase compiled and is fixing initial bugs. The QT wallet has been problematic but it is also running. The wallet is not yet syncing the PoW section of the Crown blockchain. When it syncs past the PoS changeover Ashot considers it will be ready for testnet deployment and we’ll invite the community to join in the testing effort.
- There is no target codebase testnet release date yet.
- Ashot will make a development proposal for half of the 50% development portion of the superblock.
- Artem has pushed all outstanding private commits to Gitlab. The code is available for inspection in the https://gitlab.crownplatform.com/crown/crown-core/tree/234-simple-nf-token-protocol-registration-2 and https://gitlab.crownplatform.com/crown/crown-core/tree/develop-platform branches.
- Ashot will push all outstanding private commits to Gitlab https://gitlab.crownplatform.com/crown/crown-core/tree/bitcoin-merge branch by the end of this week.
- The next release/deliverable may be NFT framework, it may be the codebase update. We’re not making a prediction either way, nor when, at this time because neither Artem or Ashot can guarantee their availability.
- Trezor Model T firmware claims to include Crown support but in tests Electrum Crown is unable to connect to the device. The Trezor One firmware doesn’t yet include Crown support. That may be released on 6 November but we have no way of knowing Trezor’s plans in that regard. Our Electrum Crown developer, Sirak, does not have a Model T, only a Model One so is unable to investigate the connection problem at this time.
- Community members defunctec and walkjivefly have forked the Dash Masternode Tool and are investigating adapting it for use with Crown and Trezor. It appears there will be quite a lot of work required and probably the efforts of an external developer, possibly Sirak. We’ll know more once Electrum Crown is able to talk to at least one Trezor model.
