Tech, Week 23 ’18

June dates to mark on your calendar: pay attention to BitShares, Tron, Burst, ARK, Cardano.

Hard fork of BitShares (BTS) is scheduled on June 7, 2018

BitShares is the smart contract platform with built-in support for recurring payments and subscription payments. The development plans of the team include feature release (non-hard fork) with three-week sprints and core release (hard fork) which is going to happen twice annually, first Thursday of June and December.

Tron (TRX) has three more new listings for the week

These are Indodax, Coinex and Max cryptocurrency exchanges. The mainnet has definitely played an essential role and the upcoming token migration is probably what is attracting all the exchanges from different parts of the world, as speculated by the market. However, TRX is still continuing to fall and maybe the market’s pace is to be blamed.

BitShares (BTS) mainnet release

Mainnet release will be published after test is done, estimated date is around Tuesday, 12 June.

Burst (BURST) team plans a hard fork in June 2018

The hard fork or the so-called ‘Pre-Dymaxion Hard Fork’ is planned to happen around block 500 000. It will enable dynamic block size and transaction fees, PoC2 protocol and multi-out transactions (up to 64 recipients per transaction). This first hard fork will allow an on-chain maximum of 9600 transactions per block (40 tx per second).

Release date of the new ARK Core v2 codebase is announced

ARK Core v2 codebase for public testing on DevNet will become available on Thursday, the 14th of June 2018. ARK Core v2 code will be released on a public GitHub repository. Current ARK Node codebase will be replaced with the new ARK Core v2 repository. The first iteration of the new ARK Core will be 100% backwards compatible, so there will be still an opportunity to run an old ARK Node on DevNet.

Cardano (ADA) roadmap update is scheduled for 7 June, 2018

The Cardano roadmap shows developments like multi signature transactions, paper wallets and side chains. Since the very launch of the Cardano roadmap, the developers haven’t stopped generating new tasks based on the passed stages. The current price of ADA is around $0.2112.
