While we have written a lot of articles about GEMS over the past few months, there is still a ton of information that deserve some public attention. As is to be expected with such a major project, there are all kinds of questions popping up which could be relevant to some people out there. Let’s take a look at some of the most recently answered questions which piqued my interest.
For example, did you know there is an asset called GEMS? I didn’t know this up until today, even though that asset has been around since March of this year. This explains why the team has chosen the name “GEMZ” for their token, and not “GEMS” , as that would only cause a lot of confusion and could possibly lead to legal consequences down the line.
In our previous article, we mentioned how users can send gems to one another by typing in the amount, followed by either ‘gems” or “gemz”. This service has been extended a bit, as you can now send an amount, followed by “gem” as well. Do keep in mind it does not matter whether you add a space between the amount and the word gem/gems/gemz.
Note from the author : It is easier to explain with an example. To send another user 10 GEMZ, you can use the following : 10 gem/10 gemz/10 gems/10gem/10gemz/10gems. It does not matter if you use lowercase or uppercase letters.
Another interesting questions came up in the form of transaction requests. For example, if you ask someone “can you send me 100 gemz?”, this will NOT be recognized as a transaction request. I’m glad to see this question come up, as it would otherwise be very easy to get funds from users in your contact list, without them realizing what you are actually trying to do.
In regards to the ability of sending Bitcoin to other GEMS users, someone asked whether or not the developers will implement “bits” as a denomination for BTC transactions. Considering how BitPay is moving to “bits”, Daniel Peled agreed it would be wise to implement that function as well.
Some more information has been provided in regards to integrated “tips” in the GEMZ application, which will help users to understand the full potential of this application :
(1) TIP: Tap on the screen to change currencies (gems/btc)
(2) TIP: To send 100 gems to a friend type 100 gems during chat.
(3) TIP: Long tap on screen to copy your wallet address to the clipboard
Last but not least, most of you will be aware of how the GEMZ social messaging app will make use of Telegram’s Secure Open Source Code. The developers are currently planning to add a feature to send Telegram users a message to download the GEMS application when they receive GEMZ from someone else.
