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.

Tron is expected to launch BitTorrent livestreaming feature in 2019, says Foundation

Tron [TRX], the ninth largest cryptocurrency by market cap, continues to strive forward in the market. The Foundation has made another announcement pertaining to their next big plan for BitTorrent, one of the biggest Torrent platform around the globe with over 100 million monthly users. The announcement regarding their next steps was made during the niTron summit 2019, the very first conference hosted by Tron. Justin Sun, the CEO and Founder of Tron Foundation, stated that BitTorrent could launch a livestreaming feature. This could be one of the biggest agenda of the team as this launch would mean going against the biggest tech firms in the world like Facebook, Youtube and Twitch. Tron Foundation said: “If everything goes as planned with #BTT, #TRON is expected to launch BT’s livestreaming feature in 2019.” Moreover, during the summit, Justin Knoll, project lead of Project Atlas, spoke about the BitTorrent protocol. He stated that the BitTorrent token [BTT] complements the BitTorrent incentive mechanism and that BitTorrent’s speed would enhance the BitTorrent protocol by changing the operational principles of the clients. He further revealed that Tron will be playing a key role, connecting BitTorrent protocol and its users, who will be able to download much faster. Knoll also stated that the incentive mechanism would encourage users to seed more on the network. Justin Sun also unveiled BitTorrent speed, a blockchain based application, during the summit. J Walker, a Twitterati said: “Only live streaming app that you can reach large groups with are social media apps. If you can make this with business class moderator features this would be huge. WebEx/ BlueJeans can only do 15,000 live views thats why you have to use periscope. leveraging the P2P network with compute also helps with POPS. The media server would be closer to connect for the most part on such a large network.” Zander Perk, a Redditor said: “This will be an interesting way for artists to get paid. Wonder if it will catch on. If it’s a solid UI that loads quickly and operates as effortlessly as YT, they could have a solid amount of users.” The post Tron is expected to launch BitTorrent livestreaming feature in 2019, says Foundation appeared first on AMBCrypto.
