It has been a long while since we received an update from the Checkcoin developers in regards to their project, and how things are going behind the scenes. Luckily for us, the CKC community manager posted an update a few days ago, which contains a lot of interesting information. Let’s take a look, shall we?
As you would come to expect, a lot of things are being worked on behind the scenes of Checkcoin. In regards to the development of the coin itself, everything is going according to plan. The team has also discussed a way to bring more updates to the Checkcoin community, and there will be weekly updates from here on out, which we will be actively covering here on CryptoArticles.
BitSend, the company behind the Checkcoin digital currency, is looking to add a skilled designer to their team; who will be working on the CKC mobile wallet for both iOS and Android platforms. Do keep in mind there are talks going on with three Dutch companies in regards to this project : Flitsmeister as advisor, Fourdigits and Dezzign for the designing part. More news regarding this matter is expected in the coming weeks.
Bitsend has also been giving quite a few presentations to various companies and institutes, in the hopes of getting some additional funding to further develop Checkcoin. Not only would such an investment increase the functionalities and possibilities of CKC, but it would also make some interesting headlines across cryptocurrency news outlets.
Regardless of whether additional funding is secured, the Checkcoin GPS-enabled wallet is scheduled for release in the near future. Developments will not stop after this release, as the possibilities are nearly endless when using the Checkcoin system. Bitsend really wants to explore all of these possibilities, but additional investment is required.
In order to avoid GPS-spoofing, there are talks going on between Bitsend and several GPS/GPRS developers about the security of the CKC network. In order to use the GPS function in the upcoming Checkcoin wallet, users will need a smartphone or mobile device with Assisted_GPS. Assisted_GPS verifies the user’s actual location by using cell tower data; and counters any “location faking”.
Last but not least; we will soon see several community events and bounties,which are all funded by the Bitsend team. 50,000 CKC will be distributed over the next few weeks, and the first project is all about creating Checkcoin fan-art. 5,000 CKC has been set aside for this community event, and no official end date has been announced as of yet.
