It’s been almost two weeks since the end of The Abyss Token Sale (DAICO). The project team has been kept busy working on current tasks and launching and testing new processes. To give you an idea and understanding of what’s been (and will be) going on, today we’re starting the series of regular reports that will be covering the project’s recent updates in various fields of activity.

It was decided, that our periodic reports, going out on Mondays, would be solely dedicated to the platform development and related issues. We asked Stanislav Kuzin, VP of Platform Development, to share the latest info regarding Stage 1 of platform development process that covers the period from the crowdsale’s end on May 16 to May 27.

Current tasks in progress

The picture below shows a preliminary list of tasks planned for implementation during Stage 1 period. Building the platform’s desktop client and browser versions, we’re currently working with the prototype back-end, while developing API at the same time. At Stage 2 we will continue developing API, created during Stage 1, and the prototype’s single-page Web app will be replaced by the platform brand-new design:

The following tasks are been carried out by The Abyss Team in accordance with terms of reference (TOR):

1. Various scenarios for the user’s registration/authorization on the platform, including the possibility of using personal social media accounts for logging/signing in.
