Intro

As to where 2018 went, we’re as unsure as you are. For Liven, we’ve massively expanded our network with incredible brand partnerships and tech integrations, and have nearly completed the private sale of our network utility token LivenCoin (LVN).

From here on, we’ll be posting monthly project updates as a way to connect our community with our company, team and culture.

Let’s get started.

In the last few months, Liven has gotten to work on scaling our front and back-end infrastructure to prepare for the almighty challenge of scale.

The Liven Wallet has seen significant feature updates and releases and Liven has partnered, and now integrated with, several point of sale technologies and the LVN token sale is almost ready to move from private to public.

Product News

LVN Wallet

  • Existing Liven Cash has been converted to LVN — though the exchange rate of LVN to $AUD will remain fixed until after the implementation of the reward protocol, following the completion of the Public Token Sale. Users are now experiencing how LVN will look and operate without the dynamic exchange rate.
  • ‘Buy LVN’ button enables anyone with the app to participate in the LVN Public Token Sale directly. In-app daily purchase limits of $500AUD equivalent apply.
  • ‘Send LVN’ button allows users to send and receive LVN from their friends.

Usernames
Upon app launch, users are met with a username prompt. This @handle will be used to send and receive LVN within the Liven ecosystem.

User Interface Overhaul
In late August 2018, Liven 5.0 was released with a refreshed UI for improved navigation while keeping a familiar user experience:

  • Bottom navigation bar was redesigned
  • Home-page was refreshed
  • Search tags were expanded

LVN will be available for withdrawal from the Liven ecosystem upon completion of the Public Token Sale and when the Token Generation Event occurs.
