update on testing DIONS and some other updates
Last week we continued the testing of DIONS with the help of our community members.
We tested transactions, registering DIONS alias and did a first messaging test.
Meaning sometimes when you click to decrypt an alias, the alias gets decrypted in the daemon but the wallet doesn't show it right away or sometimes gets stuck not updating. Thats the area we are working on right now.
We also had a bad SSD for a while in the lab and that threw our test out the door because things were acting very unresponsive. We were then told by our provider we had a bad SSD (storage device), which was replaced a few days ago.
So at this point our focus is on making the HTML5 User Interface (=Front end) Wallet more responsive and restart testing with our testers. As of Friday the bugs were all concentrated with UI and not in the DIONS source code. We have done extensive code testing without the UI and DIONS code has proven stable and working. So we are at debugging HTML5 User Interface issues.Release date?
no release date yet. When we have implemented a solution for the HTML5 refresh rate and done some more testing we will have a more clear idea on the last testing stages. Marketing / exposure
We will do the Blocktalk show when we have it all stable. Due to the testnet issues we had we had to postpone the blocktalk show because we will show a working DIONS HTML5 wallet in the show. That must run flawless ;-)
Next to that we will also feature with an interview at World Crypto Network (worldcryptonetwork.com)
We will also do a Q&A in a closed altcoinpro investor platform (bullbearanalytics.com) soon.
A new website for I/O Coin is also in the making and scheduled to launch when we launch DIONS.
When the HTML5 wallet is stable enough, we will make a video explaining all features and show how it works.Airbitz
For extra security we are also in contact with Airbitz and looking to integrate Airbitz.
They provide an SDK and mobile app that does client-side auto encryption, auto backup, device-to-device synchronization, and 2 factor authentication for blockchain private keys, with an easy single-sign-on experience for the end user. If it is possible to integrate, it will not be integrated in the upcoming DIONS release because we want to keep focus on DIONS.Messaging on Blockchain
DIONS is a great project with a lot of features and the messaging part is something to keep an eye on. In the current market we see a lot of interest in using our decentralized encrypted messaging solution. One community member is already creating a proof of concept for a new service and is looking to use our technology. We know others are working on an App as well and as soon as the technology becomes available they will start connecting to this unique feature.
All fees needed to use the messaging system are redistributed to the stakers in the network!New advisory board member
As said a week ago we are in talks with another senior leader to join our Advisory board.
