February 1, 2022: Felix Dictionary Begins Publication
Written by: Peerchemist and Gig
Happy Lunar New Year everyone! We are happy to report that Felix Dictionary is live and running on V Systems 0.4.2, and we have succeeded in launching on the anniversary of the Oxford English Dictionary (February 1st 1884).
The current functionality allows a user to save words, and to store a copy of a word and its definitions into the blockchain.
However, during testing we stumbled upon a bug in 0.4.2 which makes the NFT minting experience sub-optimal.
We have already found a reasonable workaround for this bug, and it will be implemented in the following days. In the meantime, Felix will save words without minting NFTs.
We know how you’ve been looking forward to minting Wiktionary NFTs and we apologise for any inconvenience caused by this small delay.
The good news is the core functionality of Felix Dictionary is fully operational and users can now commit dictionary definitions to the blockchain for the first time in history.
“The Oxford English Dictionary is a living document that has been growing and changing for 140 years.” OED
We have created a world’s first. Felix Dictionary is not a living document, it’s an immortal one.
How To Save Words
To celebrate the launch we have provided a pool of tokens which users can use to save words for free. We encourage people to save words with gusto and will top-up this pool when we enable NFT minting in a few days.
