It has been a while since we last did an article about DigitalCoin. Today is the day where we have some big news in regards to this altcoin, but I’m not sure if its news anyone expected. Baritus, the DigitalCoin developer, is stepping down.
As Baritus stated on the DigitalCoin forums : “As of this moment, I am passing on all lead development responsibilities to the Digitalcoin foundation (http://digitalcoin.foundation). I will no longer be developing the new versions, that responsibility will be up to the developers in the foundation. I am fully confident that the foundation will take DGC to new levels for all the community.
I will still be involved in the community in many other ways and will continue to host the website and forums. “
A big shocker if you ask me, but then again, maybe the winds of change will bring more positive news for DigitalCoin and its community. Considering the fact this altcoin is well over a year old, and still managed to keep itself somewhat relevant, it can only get better from here on out.
From what we can gather, some major development work is being done , and tests are underway to bring new feature to DigitalCoin in the (near) future. No word yet on what these feature could be, but we will keep an eye out for further announcements.
There will also be a major overhaul for the CryptoAve exchange. Due to the current lack of trading activity, shareholders (including myself) are not achieving any ROI. CryptoAve will cease to operate as an exchange as of September 15th, so make sure to withdraw all of your coins and execute share trades before that date.
As of this date, the CryptoAve software will be redeveloped in order to turn it into a licensed exchange system. Anyone will be able to start their very own exchange in roughly 15 minutes, and any and all coins with an RPC interface can be traded using this software.
The shareholders will divide profits based on their ownership percentage. Maybe my 105 shares will finally become worth something now! We can only hope, right? Either way, I’m not planning to sell my shares anytime soon, as I want to see how the project overhaul will play out.
