Dear cryptocurrency enthusiast,

We thank you for your interest in our project, and all who participated in our crowdfund. You are receiving this e-mail because you have either signed up for the Internet of Coins e-mail updates, participated in the crowdfund or have previously been in touch with one of our team members. This newsletter will be sent out once every two weeks, to keep our supporters updated about our development efforts.

Making it easier

Our last wallet release had support for a large variety of tokens. This number has since increased, and support for new cryptocurrencies is now an ongoing process. Next to that we have two new features that will make asset and token management a bit easier.

Put a star on it

The wallet now supports the option to give a star to your favourite cryptocurrencies so they will appear on your dashboard. This way you can keep track of these assets outside of the asset view. Selecting a few cryptocurrencies to display on the dashboard, instead of all of them, loads the dashboard faster and gives a more responsive feel.

Decentralized storage: phase one

User settings - like for example which cryptocurrencies are shown on the dashboard - are now stored in a decentralized way, and synchronized between your browser and network node. This means the first phase of our decentralized storage system is now working. On the road ahead we will be developing our consensus mechanism to share this encrypted data end-to-end directly between nodes. The goal is to make a state machine that safely stores user data, without needing to use a blockchain.

The Christmas holidays

The coming two weeks several members of our team will be on Christmas holiday. This means it may take a bit longer for your questions to be answered by e-mail or on the chat channels. We hope you also will have the possibility to take some time out to spend with friends and/or family for holidays and new year reflections. Starting January we will be back in full force to continue on our roadmap for 2018.
