Metrics by @Koru
- A new version of Scavenger, “the fastest Burst miner”, has been released. Version 1.4.0 is a major release with a substantial changelog. In short, it features many performance improvements (especially for big rigs) and new features. You can check the code and download it freely on GitHub.
- The new 2.2.3 BRS core wallet released last week looks stable so far. The PoC Consortium recommends updating if you haven’t already. Click here to download it for your operating system.
- Call for Code is a multi-year global initiative that is a rallying cry to developers to use their skills and mastery of the latest technologies, and to create new ones, to drive positive and long-lasting change across the world with their code. This year, the inaugural Call for Code Challenge theme is Natural Disaster Preparedness and Relief.
- Last week, we reviewed Daniel Jones’ (@nixops) concept of Proof-of-Life, which uses blockchain and radio to send a message to confirm someone is alive in a war time or natural disaster scenario. Daniel’s technology has been submitted to Call for Code — there are many prizes to win so let’s keep our fingers crossed. Here is the project’s repository.
- Some explanations of what the roadmap looks like after the latest announcements of the past few months, by PoC Consortium developer rico666:
- Don’t forget to vote for Burst for the Numex listing. It is free, it takes a few seconds and you do not need to register.
- A few community members attended BlockchainBeach, a meet-up in Los Angeles.
- A good example of a fun little contest by reddit user blankey1337.
This week was a bit quieter than the previous one, but showed some encouraging development as well. As always, community involvement is paramount and we can never have enough of it. Ask yourself if you have done something beneficial for Burst this week, no matter how big it was!
Thank you and see you next week.
