Development

  • We can “expect not to have many news from the PoC Consortium this week and the next”, according to rico666. Since the core version 2.0.4 appears to be stable (we have now almost 700 stable public nodes), developers now direct their attention on many Burst projects, both public and private. So we are entering a little less glamorous period of coding and research.
    • We can “expect more news after the PoC Consortium hackathon” that will take place from April 27th to April 30th.
    • Still, we have some minor news for this week:
  • The PoC3 prototype is finished.
  • The PoC Consortium 50-50 pool has been moved to new, faster hardware to handle the flow of miners. It is currently the biggest Burst pool in terms of terabytes.
  • Some fixes and enhancements have been made to the Blockchain Explorer (searching for IPv6 nodes now works).

Websites

  • Burst-coin.org has been entirely revamped! We are very pleased with the positive feeback received from the community. The overhaul includes:
    • Complete redesign to better fit with the Burst theme and values
    • Reorganization and simplification of the menu & pages
    • Better integration of all the latest PoC Consortium developments and proposals
  • Storagemining.io, the first ever cloud mining service specialized in Burst mining, is going to be launched on April 29th.
  • The Burst community is launching a few blogs, such as weareburstcoin or minesomeburst.com. Minesomeburst.com also offers a mining calculator with interesting additional data.

Other

  • Vote for Burst on getadcoin.com so we can win Burst ads! Burst is currently ranked #3.
  • A new episode of the Harvey Harddrive comic: Happy 420!
  • The April meme competition is still running – but there isn’t much time left to participate!
  • Bitcoin Ore (the Bitcoin fork with PoC mining) recently released a wallet. While this is not directly related to Burst, I would like to take this opportunity to remind the Burst community to NOT download this software for obvious security reasons (extremely shady project) – see this reddit discussion.

Conclusion

Another week and another batch of exciting news. The burst-coin.org revamp has been an important operation: it is generally our first contact point with beginners and we had to offer something that better represented our values and ideas. With this new website and the development that is going on, we believe to be in the right track and we look forward to seeing the community grow further.

Thank you and see you next week.
