A lot of progress has been made. Electron development is initially paid for by Novo, not by Gulden. When it is ready for Novo, it will be as good as ready for Gulden. Almost everything is functional without bugs. Non-developers can cooperate much more because there are many more possibilities for UI designers in Electron compared to QT. In August the wallet for NOVO will be released; after that the update to Electron for Gulden will be released.
Progress is good, and the estimate that the DEX will be ready by 2020 is maintained. The DEX will initially offer Gulden, Novo and Bitcoin.
PROGRESS EXCHANGE LISTINGS
In the meantime, several existing exchange and broker parties have been contacted. This has not yet resulted in a concrete (possibility of) listing. The answers vary from no interest to no technical capacity to realise an NLG listing.
The above has led to something else beautiful, because as Gulden we have to keep going:
Recently there has been a meeting between Centure, a delegation of the GAB and Milo van Faassen of CoinRequest. Milo and his company, in cooperation with Centure, want to re-introduce (part of the) functionalities that Nocks offered to the Gulden community. This includes a euro pair, a checkout option for Gulden merchants (including conversion to Euro) and more. It will also serve as a counter for the stablecoin that the DEX uses. At this moment both parties are working together to find out how this can be best realized. A more extensive statement will follow, but we don’t want to deprive you of this memorable news at this moment!
QUESTIONS FROM THE COMMUNITY
- Can the GAB get access to the official FB and Twitter pages of Gulden.com?
Rijk is positive about this and wants to add people who can access the accounts on FB and twitter.
- Tokeninsight data can only be updated by Gulden official
If there are more people who think it’s important to complete this page, the BV will request access at Tokeninsight so that adjustments can be made.
- Marketing Funds managed by the GAB
The GAB is not opposed to this. How the keys and transactions are safely managed is, however, a point of attention. According to Malcolm, there is a multi-signature transaction system in Gulden, but this is not easy to implement via the user interface and consists of a series of manual commands (in the debug screen). Part of the GAB wonders if there shouldn’t first be a consensus on what constitutes good marketing and what is needed for it, before creating a budget.
- Dex questions : If the Dex should also work for other currencies, should it be integrated in the other wallets? Is there already a priority list of supported coins for the DEX and is it already known if an open source code base is used, if so what is this code base?
We first focus on making the DEX work for ourselves. Adding other coins is of later order. Therefore, there is no list of other coins that will be supported yet. (Except for the onces mentioned in these notes). About which code-base is used and if it is open source is nothing to say at this moment.
- Are there plans of the dev team to -via a third party- develop apps which use the Gulden blockchain?
The DEV team is always open for third party development based on the Gulden blockchain and will always provide support to these developers in case of questions. At the moment the dev team is not actively looking for third party developers because the focus is on their own developments, but if a party is interested we will always help them and speak to them.
