It’s time we took a look back at DarkCoin and see what they have been up to over the past few weeks. The developers made a very interesting announcement a few days ago, as they will be releasing RC5 next Monday!
Before we go into detail about what will change in RC5, the DarkCoin team will be releasing a whitepaper soon about Instant Transactions. I’m really looking forward to finding out more, as instant transactions would be groundbreaking in the world of cryptocurrency.
The main feature of DarkCoin’s RC5 will be a basic version of enforcement which, when activated, will guarantee masternode payments are present in a block. From the testing results so far, the code appears to be working and some final bugs are being ironed out. In case there are DRK mining pools who do not upgrade to the new client, their found blocks will be rejected by the network.
A lot of people will be pleased to hear DarkSend will be made open source a week after the release of RC5, which will be on September 29th. Just in case the code needs some updating before releasing it to the general public.
The DarkCoin developers are thinking ahead as well, even though there are no pressing matters in regards to DarkSend at this time. The Instant Transaction implementation will commence immediately following the RC5 release, but no official ETA was given at this time.
