How is the development of Gulden funded?

How is the development of Gulden funded?

In the crypto-landscape, Gulden is like an outsider. Not only does it have a distinct status in terms of security and user-friendliness, but its applicability with direct IBAN links is also of an exceptional and sophisticated level. Everything is done to make Gulden a modern means of payment, alongside the Euro and Dollar. But then with the ease of use of virtually free global transactions and transparency, safety and speed that the blockchain technology has to offer. In fact, however,…

Rijk Plasman: Review at four years Gulden

Rijk Plasman: Review at four years Gulden

Rijk Plasman has the floor: How I look back at the past 4 years as founder of Gulden In 2013, I started development of Gulden with a developer. Gulden started out with the Litecoin codebase as its base. We chose Litecoin because it was faster in daily use than Bitcoin at that time. We launched Gulden on April 4th 2014 and the first few blocks were mined. On April 8th 2014 the first couple of Gulden were traded at 0.0003…

Development moves to public Gulden repository

Development moves to public Gulden repository

From the Gulden Development Team: Development moves to our public Gulden repository As of this weekend the team has decided to push all the development for PoW², SegSig and Sonic to our public repository – https://github.com/Gulden/gulden-official. All future development will be done directly to this location. The main reason we worked on a private repository in the past were for technical reasons that have now fallen away, to control beta testing so that our releases could be a surprise and…

Malcolm:”Sonic- changes parts of the program (network code) that have almost no relation to the parts PoW2 touches so has been worked on by a separate developer in parallel.”…

iOS Development Update

From the Gulden Development Team: iOS Development Update The upcoming iOS release will feature both technical and user-facing improvements.

G-Dash: Download it now and run a full node

G-Dash: Download it now and run a full node

A word from Bastijn, developer of G-Dash: When the PoW2 whitepaper was released and the witness functionality was described, I started thinking about a way to have a wallet running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and combining it with the option of running a full node to strengthen the network. Leaving a computer running with the wallet software day and night is a waste of energy (and costs) and renting a server for this purpose would be…

Gulden 2.0: What are we Testing?

From the Gulden Development Team: What are our testers testing for the Gulden 2.0 update? We have had this question come up from many community members so we thought it would be a good time to break down the parts involved. The 2.0 update involves tens of thousands of lines of code that effect every layer of the software, from the blockchain consensus, the transaction script layer to the network layer and UI. While the bulk of the code has…

Nocks: what’s next!

Great news from Nocks, just a day after Gulden announced its public testing of Pow2/Segsig. But first a little recap.
