Trading support in preparation
A third party has shown interest to launch the hybrid tokens used in Internet of Coins on an exchange. Their technicians have started research into supporting the different chains that intercommunicate. We cannot give any guarantees on their timing, but donators who will want to start trading will have one more choice on where they can exchange, next to the decentralized exchanges. We will also unveil the logo for the interconnected hybrid token when the exchange has their implementations ready. In the meantime we are laying foundations for the weavechain implementation and starting cooperation with other programmers, for example in the UI/UX area to take the wallet further.
Next to token support, we are also preparing bare metal options for our supporters. Development of a hardware node is underway that will enable everyone to support the Internet of Coins infrastructure. We are very excited about this development, and will communicate further information once the nodes are production ready.
Developing our Hardware Node
The first prototype boards for the development of an open source Internet of Coins hardware node have finally landed on our development workbench. They feature a cool 2GB of RAM and quad-core ARM processor. Additionally, they will be outfitted with an embedded, custom-built and secure operating system, based on best-of-breed software from the Armbian project and using Debian GNU/Linux as a base. In the first instance, our Early Birds will be entitled to take part in the public beta launch for our node ecosystem. Stay tuned for more information on this amazing development in upcoming newsletters.
Virtual Machines and DIY
For those that are not so lucky to take part in our hardware node pioneer project, we will make Virtual Machine images available that provide a standardised environment from which to run a node on any computer that supports VirtualBox (an open source product made available by Oracle, originally created by Sun Microsystems). Of course, hardcore experts will be able to DIY (Do It Yourself) by cloning our node software directly from github, where the alpha wallet code will be made available around the end of the fundraising period and regularly updated as our codebase grows and matures. But for all those users looking for something more accessible, the Virtual Machine images will help to bridge the divide and get up and running with Internet of Coins in a hands-on approach.
