As we mentioned yesterday evening, there would be an official Syscoin blog post with more details in regards to how things are faring in regard to this altcoin. There have been some changes to the Syscoin developer roadmap, and a mention was made about potentially using i2p anonymized connections. Let’s take a look, shall we?
Due to ongoing legal battle between Syscoin and Ryan Kennedy, development had to be paused for a little while during last week’s court hearing. As a result of this “delay”, several projects have had their ETAs pushed back a little. The following projects had their ETAs updated :
Android App: 12/7/2014
Blockmarket Beta: 12/13/2014 or sooner
iOS App: 12/13/2014 or sooner pending Apple approval process
Speaking of SYS development, the next big delivery coming from the developers will be Syscoin Wallet V2. This new client will change the way the wallet experience is delivered to end users, and it will look entirely different than any other cryptocurrency wallet in existence today. An alpha version will be released soon in order to collect user feedback, and iterative updates will be released until the team feels the Wallet V2 is ready for beta promotion.
The way things stand right now, and with the development of projects being pushed back a little bit, the Syscoin team expects to have an alpha version of Wallet V2 ready by the end of December 2014. We will keep an eye out for any further information and keep our readers updated accordingly.
A lot of people who have been using the Syscoin decentralized marketplace, are wondering if its possible to sell an item and list the price in fiat currency. The development team has taken this feedback to heart, and are currently developing a tool called SysPricePeg, a background application determining average SYS/(altcoin/fiat)cost. SysPricePeg is about 75% completed at this point in time.
On the same topic of community feedback, implementing an escrow service in Syscoin is a topic heavily being discussed as of late. There are two options for implementing this feature , either a trustless system, or escrow through arbitration. Both of these options will need to be explored carefully,
