Here are the latest notes from our team call on September 6th, 2105.
Team finalizing DApp spec for proposal and review with ETH team/Vitalik; targeting delivery of spec by this Wednesday. Spec includes three DApps- asset, marketplace and escrow.
Spec development coming along very well, shows clear evolution from Syscoin-Shade release feature set and pivot in team direction (we will build DApps on top of the ETH network instead of maintaining our own network)
Still discussing AT/CIYAM implementation options for some point after the ETH DApps, they have promising tech.
SYS2 development will be fueled by a new crowdsale- marketing needs to start on this crowdsale ASAP.
Major goal of SYS2 crowdsale will be to allow SYS1 holders to transfer equity into new asset (converted SYS1 will be burned)- team brainstormed some options for this conversion / equity % but the primary focus remains Syscoin Shade release and SYS2 Spec.
Core devs have started working with DApp code to prepare for the cut-over, half of core-dev remains on 1.5.2-shade work mentioned below
Syscoin 1.5.2 “shade” Wallet Release and Hard Fork
Pegging feature implementation expanded to accomodate a much wider variety of currency pegging options.
Core upgrades completed- QT interfaces being updated- targeting release in ~2weeks
Blockmarket v1 to be released alongside Shade; may be a week after the Shade wallet release to allow team to focus on ensuring hard fork is completed properly
Roadmap on website needs to be updated- updated Roadmap for next few weeks:
> Complete SYS2 Spec by Wednesday, deliver to Vitalik for feedback
> Select SYS2 official new name by Wednesday, spool up marketing around crowd sale
> Complete SYS 1.5.2-Shade QT work, test
> Investigate options around forming company around SYS2 for purposes of more official investment and for crowdsale and legal reasons
> Complete Blockmarket v1.0 final touches and test against the Shade API changes
> Release market.syscoin.org as landing page for Shade release, link to API docs, create simple quickstart guide, and link to SYS2 info
> SYS2 crowdsale (contingent on confirmation of SYS2 spec/timeline) – specifics still being hashed out
Marketing team focusing on finalizing new name and developing marketing strategy around crowd sale
Still planning to work with select partners to pre-populate Shade release with marketplace items (partner names TBD)
