CORE and CORE Media were birthed out of the community which formed around the SuperNET project launched by jl777 in 2014. Now that many aspects of the project are finally coming together in fantastic form and usable products are just around the bend, we couldn’t be more pleased to help spread the word and keep our audience up to date on the latest happenings with this revolutionary project and its technology. Welcome to SuperNET Weekly!
Iguana Progress and ETA
“There are about half a dozen core bugs, mostly dealing with accounts<->address in the wallet. Iguana will be ready this year, certainly at the core level, and there is the basic wallet GUI, EasyDEX and I do have another GUI project in the process.
There are 3 reported bugs in the github, but I am sure there are a few more, but yes for the EasyDEX test sequence to work, quite a lot of the tech is being utilized, especially as it is all running on a pair of iguana nodes.
Which means all of the bitcoind level functionality is recreated from scratch, but fits in 2MB codesize, as compared to dozens of MB. a lot of time it took to do this, and now it is a matter of making use cases for it, like EasyDEX, InstantDEX, PAX, pangea, etc.” – JL777
Is there any future plans for BTCD beyond Iguana? and PAX ? – Proto
“Yes and Yes. I improved PAX design. Also smartchains will play a big role in BTCD. Then there are the things I cant say until Sep 1. Not smart contracts, but smartchains ie a custom blockchain with a single Dapp built into it” – JL777
Are you waiting to start building more features until after Iguana? – Proto
“A lot of the features are already coded an in the repo, but testing and GUI’izing is the bottleneck” – JL777
Did you hire a new GUI team though? What about a testers? – Proto
“Yes, have GUI team and also Grewal is doing EasyDEX. It usually takes half a dozen testers to keep up with my output, so I end up having to test most of my own, which isn`t most optimal, but seems to be the reality” – JL777
How long do you think the GUI team will take to make the GUI? And to fix the bugs? – Proto
“I cant speak for GUI guys, I plan to fix the current set of bugs in the next week, but there could be another set of bugs not found yet, so maybe will be a bit longer. After I catch up, I can start making new bugs again.” – JL777
SuperNET In CORE Magazine
“Update on the GUI:
Done with screens for Feature: Sending Coins (A > A)
- Finishing and rolling out Create Account\Signup this week
- Finishing and rolling out the dashboard
- Have 1 developer taking his test task
- Another waiting for tomorrow to let take a brief interview and complete a task
- Still having a blocker for Windows environment, so have to terminate a guy who work with Windows.” – Boogieman
The coop is finalize now and the next step is to built a small team to change major parts of finhive plus making finhive compatible to their planned system. It tooks me days to explain decentralized crypto systems to the devs since they are very good in building and maintaining monolithic/centralized system but unfortunatly they haven’t usable knowledge about cryptosphere. Since I wrote the current system mostly based on my optimized custom tools, which includes also the db-backend there is a need for following changes to ensure other devs are able to interact and work on finhive.
1. Change the db-backend from pure KV to a mongodb/rethinkdb backend
2. Change the whole portal from current plain cgi to responsive/realtime angularjs
3. Change the data fetchers from c/terra to nodejs
Those changes are necessary because as mentioned above the current code base is just to custom made and the devs aren’t willing to jump on code not written in a well known mainstream language where additional resources could be allocated if needed.
The timeframe for this rebuilt will be ~3 month from now. It is not easy and will take some time to form a team from devs without crypto experience but the agreement was that they will add devs to ensure they are getting knowledge about crypto for the platform they like to built next year.
For all shareholders without the patience (which is understandable) more buywalls will be placed the next days to offer an exit for those who don’t like to wait longer. Just in case someone like to settle bigger numbers in btc instead nxt please drop me a line.” – Nexern
