On the surface, this has been a relatively quiet month for Qchain. In addition to the MVP — which some of you are understandably frustrated about due to the delayed launch — we are working on several developments behind the scenes. The news will be important to both Qchain token holders and supporters of our platform, and we will make these announcements as soon as we are able to. As for now, scroll down to read our October dev update.
The team has remained an active presence in the SoCal blockchain community. This past month, Kyle and Matthew, our Operations and Social Marketing leads, represented NEM and Qchain at a blockchain event in Marina Del Rey, with hundreds of blockchain enthusiasts in attendance.
Beginning next month, we will officially be linking up with the NEM Foundation to further develop their business development and marketing in North America. In an increasingly competitive scene, we felt strongly that mutual progress would help us with securing business connections and expanding our network.
What does that mean we’ll be doing? Our main roles are to assist with:
- Content marketing
- Social media strategy
- Training for developers
- Leading workshops and meet-ups
These activities will run parallel to the development of the Qchain marketplace and will focus primarily on marketing rather than product, so our tech dev team can focus their efforts on our own platform.
On the tech side, we have been focusing on sorting out bugs on the back end, securing the components of the marketplace, and working on various features.
Currently, all of the resources and API endpoints in the front end have been secured, and all communication and content serving occurs over encrypted SSL connections. This also resolves and prevents warnings and functionality issues in certain browsers.
We’re also working to find and fix various bugs in the marketplace database. Apologies if you’ve had any issues with browsing listings and listing creation.
Lastly, we are working on analytics features for aggregation, summarization, and visualization of data and statistics. When those are ready, they’ll be rolled into the dashboard.
