I have started the process of hiring a marketing freelancer to assist with marketing efforts. Marketing will focus on social media, chats in slack, chats in mining pools, posts in related forums and sites. I’m hoping to have the freelancer start before the end of the week.Initial Testnet Version
I have started work on the modifications of the core and web client UI that are required before the initial testnet is ready for release. This version will not include the subbase module that will be added in a later release. The Initial modified version of the core will be used for the initial coin distribution after the ICO period ends. New UI for Web and Desktop Clients (including subbase module UI functionality)
I’m in the process of scheduling some time with the freelance designer (Santiago) that will be assisting with any graphic design needs for the various Uis.
