From a financial perspective, Bitcoin can be deemed to be a godsend for people who are not in favor of disclosing any personal information when making payments online. Whereas most people automatically assume Bitcoin users have something to hide, a counterargument can be made for how much privacy consumers have sacrificed in order to enjoy convenient online payments. BitPhone is combining VoIP calling with Bitcoin payments to provide additional layers of user privacy.
One of the things that could really make cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin very popular, would be if it could compete with, or even replace existing services because of cheaper rates. One of the services everyone in the world uses, is the ability to make phone calls, either through a landline, mobile subscription, over VoIP and by any other means necessary. Chiliphone is looking to become a major player in this market, and they use Bitcoin as its payment system.
The Viorcoin developer has posted a mandatory client update, which adds even more functionality to this altcoin. As we mentioned in our previous article, video calls through VoIP have been added in this new client. But there is another nifty feature which was kept under wraps until the VIOR client release : telco gateway integration!
The most anticipated feature of this Viorcoin client upgrade is video calling through the VoIP protocol. Whereas there are different digital currencies offering VoIP functionality at this point, VIOR is actually the first one with a working video chat option. You can read more about this functionality in our previous Viorcoin article.
Over the past few days, I have been keeping an eye on the progress of Viorcoin. A little birdy told me there would be a wallet update soon, which was scheduled to include video chat functionality for the VoIP feature. We have received some more details in regards to that matter, so let’s take a look what is cooking!
The Viorcoin video chat feature has been a work in progress for a while now, and the actual release date announcement had been delayed a bit because of a persistent bug which caused the new client to crash when trying to video chat with other users. Thanks to the help of an external developer, this bug has now been fixed, and the video wallet will be released tomorrow.
Most people who have been involved with altcoins over the past few months will have heard of Korecoin, and their ambitious plans to create a KorePhone. Overnight, I received some details in regards to the KorePhone progress, sent to me by the development team. Let’s take a look at how things are going, shall we?
KorePhone : What is it?
While I’m sure most of you will already have a basic idea of what the KorePhone will bring to the table, allow me to give you a brief hint of what is to come. The KorePhone will be the next level of smartphone incarnation, as the focal points are privacy and security.
Many people in the cryptocurrency world are always looking for the next big thing. Whereas most altcoin developers will look at implementing new features, Korecoin is looking to build its very own smartphone, called KorePhone. That is not what this article is about however, but we do have some details on Korecoin 3.0!
The name of the upcoming Korecoin client release is called “Korecoin 3.0 – The Evolution”. A very ambitious name might I add, especially considering all of the non-client developmental projects that are currently in development, such as the KorePhone and KoreSurf.
When we take a closer look at the world of Bitcoin, cryptocurrency and more specifically altcoins, there seems to be a new trend emerging. Having some form of communicating with other users on the network through chat messages has been around for a while. But what if we had more coins offering VoIP solutions, and even file transfers?
While there are several altcoins out there using a VoIP implementation at this point, such as Korecoin and Viorcoin, it looks like we will be able to add ShadowCash to that list in the near future. The developers have released their updated development roadmap a few days, and a new feature has been announced.
For those of you who keep an eye on this website at regular intervals, you will remember the article we posted about Viorcoin , which can be found here. As mentioned in that article, once the wallet would be released, it would come with a lot of features including dual-key stealth addresses and VoIP functionalities.
Now that the wallet actually has been released a few days ago, and the VIOR trading market on Bittrex have been opened, let’s take a closer look at how things are going. After all, we all want to see how their VoIP solution holds up when comparing it to other coins such as Korecoin, right?
“Mr. Watson–come here–I want to see you.”
KORE’S reply, We are well on our way!
Every so often there’s an idea, a technology an applied product that so perfectly meets a need it becomes born of genius. Satoshi Nakamoto envisioned those needs met with Bitcoin and whether we knew the many ways in which BTC is and will be instrumental in accomplishing many critical objectives or you educated yourself in a near epiphanic awakening of its utter true genius, we are the true believers and we know most may never get that deep and frankly, they don’t need to.
KoreCoin enthusiasts will be pleased to hear the ALPHA version of KORE’s VoIP feature will be receiving an update very soon. On the other hand, the BETA version still has no official release date, but other things have been announced to make up for that, so let’s take a look!
Two weeks ago, the KORE developer announced he had to push back the VoIP BETA release date of October 1st in order to fix some ALPHA version bugs. So far, the fixes in regards to notifications., instant messages and the buddy list are coming along nicely.
KoreCoin has released a mandatory client update earlier today, which users must download as soon as possible. Even though this update still includes the alpha version of the VoIP feature, it is now functional!
As with the previous KORE client version, you can either download the client with, or without the VoIP feature. The VoIP feature has received an update though, and is now functional. Still no video functionality however, as that is still expected to be released on October 1st.
There is some important KoreCoin news I wanted to talk to our readers about, but I didn’t get around to doing so earlier this week due to travelling back from London after attending Inside Bitcoins. The alpha version of KORE’s VoIP feature has been released!
As you may remember from our previous KoreCoin article, which you can find here in case you missed it, the alpha version of the VoIP feature does not include video calls. However, the functionalities which are available, deserve to be looked at a bit more in-depth!
As some of you may have noticed over the past few days, there has been a lot of talk about KoreCoin going on. As a result, a fair few people are accumulating coins on the BitTrex exchange by the looks of it. Let’s take a look at what is going on.
The biggest reason behind all of the talk going on, and the accumulation as well if you ask me, are the recent announcements made by the KoreCoin developers. The next 30 days will be a very interesting period for this altcoin, as some major features are to be released during those days.
