Hi, all! Please find below a regular development status report, this one covering the period from July 9 to July 22.

An intensive work inside this timeframe (which is well shown on the first diagram) has resulted in reaching another important milestone — the release of pre-alpha version ( of The Abyss digital distribution platform. We have increased activity to deliver it in time, on July 19, 2018.

Pre-alpha version

We have totally re-designed all pages to make the platform look fresh and bright, and have simplified the navigation by adding new elements. Some new features (most notably, “The transactions history”) have also been added to extend The Abyss functionality.
