Catch up with all the latest news in the world of Nano in the latest digest. We’ve got some amazing projects to tell you about, a big development update and some important service announcements for you to be aware of. Let’s get to it!

Unreal Nano

Unreal Nano is a brand new game created using Unreal Engine and the Unreal Nano plugin, with full VR and multiplayer support. Set in peaceful Nordic surroundings, the game elegantly shows the ability of the Unreal Engine Nano Plugin, through interactive elements controlled by real-time Nano transactions.

Following recent improvements to the free UE4 Plugin, it is now easier than ever to add Nano to arcade machines, single & multiplayer games. Developers can now access expanded documentation and helpful video tutorials to begin experimenting without the need for protocol-level knowledge.

Anyone looking to jump in and experience Unreal Nano themselves can download the full game for free and begin exploring and interacting with the network.

Development Update

We recently shared our plans and initial steps towards improving accessibility for external contributors to better track and engage with ongoing node and protocol development.

There is now a dedicated roadmap repository and Nano Roadmap project on Github, which provides much better visibility on the various components of planned releases and network upgrades. Community contributors can now much more quickly identify where the core developers are currently focused and where those efforts can be best supported.

A new Nano Test network has rolled, which differs from the beta network in that it provides a more stable environment for developers to test and refine their production integrations.

New dark mode and tabs available on the Nano Documentation site

We also gave the Nano Documentation resource a facelift, adding a dark mode and with the help of some incredible community contributions, significantly expanded the Living Whitepaper.

For a full run-down of recent changes, read the full announcement, and stay tuned for further updates on the Nano development processes:

RoboCash

Based out of California, and members of FinTech incubator EvoNexus, RoboCash are the latest innovative project built on Nano to celebrate some incredible milestones.

Much less frequent and infinitely better quality cold-calls are something we can all get behind(not you, spammers). The team at RoboCash are working on precisely that, and have had plenty to shout about in recent weeks!

In October, the team shared the exciting news that they had secured their first US patent, awarded for the unique game theory underpinning the system designed to reduce unsolicited calls, using Nano deposits. At the same time, the team announced expanding Android support with a host of new devices now able to run the RocoCash app.

Creator Adrian Garcia recently spoke with Disruption Banking about how the RoboCash solution works, how the team rose to challenges along the way, and what the future holds for the project.

Moon to the Nano!

Earlier this year social news site Reddit announced that users could now earn cryptocurrency directly on the community platform, in the form of Moons and Bricks.

Redditors have been earning the tokens since May, based on the quality of their contributions to the r/Cryptocurrency and r/FortniteBR sub-reddits. A recent surge in demand for liquidating these coins exposed a complicated and involved process that was an effective blocker even for experienced cryptocurrency enthusiasts.

Well, Redditors can now exchange Moons for Nano, using Kuyumcu. This simple swap exchange is hands down the fastest and easiest way to turn the Reddit tokens into real money. As always, take care when deciding to use any and all exchange services.

Great to see Nano out there making money simpler, more efficient and infinitely more accessible!

Disaster Node

Hat’s off to James Coxon, community developer and Nano Center Ambassador, on his recent efforts to create what appears to be the hardiest Nano node in the Universe.

Why not? — The Peli 1300 case is unbreakable, watertight, dustproof, chemical resistant and corrosion-proof

Based on the Off-Grid Cyber Deck design, the build uses a Raspberry Pi 4 8gb, 480Gb USB 3 SSD and a 10000mAh Battery to power the node and a robust Peli 1300 Protective Case.

Brainblocks

Community-based Nano payment processor Brainblocks has announced it will be ceasing all operations moving forward, including its own web-based wallet service. You can follow their plans here, and merchants should plan their transition accordingly:

A range of alternative payment options are available to users running a Nano checkout via Brainblocks, including CoinGate, NowPayments, Coinify, Manta and other community-based solutions.
