Hello RISE community,
As we are at the end of March, it is time to recap activities the team have been involved in this month. We hope this allows you to catch up with the progress we have made.Technology Developments
We are very excited to share we are preparing for our core mainnet release of the rewritten and tested TypeScript code base in April. The magnitude of this milestone should be celebrated and is a culmination of months of hard work by the Development team. Further announcements will be made in due course to inform and showcase this achievement in RISE development.Delegate Update for Typescript
As we prepare for the imminent release of our new TypeScript core to mainnet there will be some tasks if you run a node. Please update your nodes via `./rise_manager.bash update_client` as this update is mandatory for the upcoming TypeScript core release and further instructions may be requested in the #delegates channel in Slack.Wallet Updates
We released a new version of the RISE desktop wallet as users mentioned they were having issues with this. If you use the desktop wallet please update it, you can find the new release here: https://github.com/RiseVision/rise-desktop/releases. If you use a Mac, please bear with us and use the web wallet for the time being. Thank you for your patience.TypeScript Updates
A big thank you to the testers who completed the TypeScript testing program launched in January for running testnet nodes successfully and supporting our development team. We are currently arranging bounties for your dedication to the progress of RISE development. Please look out for further bounties which will be publicised on our new website.
We understand how anxious everyone is with regards to working with exchanges. As discussed previously, we need to maintain a balance with discussing listing conversations to ensure we do not jeopardise any partnerships. We have engaged multiple exchanges that we believe would be a good fit for RISE. Without going into each individual process, we can say there are a multitude of requirements to be considered, they can include listing fees, legal documents, volume and ERC20/non-ERC20 integrations. We will conclude this with mentioning that RISE is in a very unique position, being a non-ERC20 with low volume in the current climate is lengthening discussions. We will keep working hard on this and we hope to share more progress soon.
In the meantime, check out this awesome blog post by our friends at OpenLedger DEX, a peer to peer platform based on Bitshares technology: https://steemit.com/openledger/@bloggersclub/rise-traded-on-openledger-dex. This month they opened the gateway for RISE. You can also follow them on Twitter at @OpenLedgerDC.RISE is now on Openledger DEX: https://openledger.io/ Team Developments
As discussed previously, it is imperative that RISE can attract great development and commercial talent for our continued growth. Therefore, I am delighted to say we have a new developer to add to the team, a further announcement on this hire will be shared in the first half of April.
We are also expanding our community team, we will announce these community managers shortly after their their appointment is confirmed.Website Developments
In March a considerable amount of time was spent working with our partnered creative design team on fine tuning the new website. The concept behind the redesign was to drive a more focused, concise message on the mission of RISE and how developers would engage with the project. This rationale led us to recreate and reorganise content for the website. We want our new website to be an open invitation for developers to access our developer tools and learn about the RISE DPOS blockchain.Ask Me Anything
Many community members have asked for an ‘Asked Me Anything’. We aim for release of our mainnet and website first, after these milestones we will communicate the official process for our AMA for April, likely a subreddit. We look forward to answering your questions and gleaning feedback from dedicated community members.RISE Monthly Statistics
