Hut34 - Data is the New Oil, Developers are the prospectors
our Entropy Token sale continues, and as we work to finalise a number
of exciting and important partnerships in the background, this post will
share some further news about the progress and development of the Hut34
Platform in both the short and mid term.
Data is the New Oil, Developers are the prospectors
key metric for the success of the Hut34 network is the number of
engaged developers. In the short term, we feel this is likely best
measured by active bot developers engaging with the platform — at this
stage just learning about the concepts, and further down the line
bringing their existing bots, and developing new bots to add value to
the network, and earn Entropy Tokens (ENT) in return.
to key partners continues, and so far the feedback is outstanding. Here
are the two key questions we’ve been asking dev.s;
Are you a developer of a chatbot or data service?Do you like money?
Unsurprisingly, we’re getting positive responses!
Hut34 Network will be the world’s first open interbot network, which
will allow developers of bots, and providers of data to quickly and
easily monetise their services, and the developer communities out there
have a huge amount to gain from our joint success. It’s these economic
incentives which really act as the rocket fuel for the growth of the
now, we have approximately 30 devs who have applied to road test the
platform, and we’re continuing to reach out to organisations and groups
who we feel would be a good fit to work with Hut34 — we feel this is an
Our token sale runs for a few more weeks, with the price rising each week from here on. As ever, join our telegram group for live chat with the community and team, and visit the website for full details on all aspects of the Hut

BlockCAT (BCAT) Community Update - Work in progress, BlockCAT Beta, Security & More
Work in progress
preparation for the upcoming changes, we’d like to remind the community
that while our Alpha product will still be accessible on the new site,
we will be phasing out the alpha functionality alongside the beta
you have any Ether still contained in our Alpha smart contracts, we
encourage you to withdraw that Ether prior to the launch of the Beta. https://alpha.blockcat.io
What to expect in the Beta
of the key insights we’ve learnt from the BlockCAT alpha was how
disruptive MetaMask was to the user experience. Our decision to use it
was largely driven by our goal to make the platform as “thin” as
possible. However, it’s become clear that the impact of MetaMask has
been very detrimental to the overall look, feel, and flow of our
platform. Our core value proposition has always been in delivering an
excellent and pain-free experience, and we’ll be revisiting our
architecture to ensure that we build a better platform for everybody to
In an effort to increase the number of contract deployments during our Beta, we’ll first be releasing visual contract simulations.
These contracts will provide a similar user experience of deploying
live smart contracts, without the need to actually spend your Ether or
Tokens, allowing everyone to participate in testing the platform, even
users who don’t own any cryptocurrency.
release new contract simulations one at a time, source extensive
feedback from the community, iterate the design, and ultimately finalize
the UI — effectively delivering a product grown and refined by our
collective userbase. Once we’ve completed this cycle with all our smart
contracts, we’ll deploy live versions of the contracts that interact
with the blockchain.
been working on creating infrastructure that allow us to quickly create
and release simulations for community suggested contracts. This will
allow us to test a large number of contracts and filter through the most
popular ones for our solidity engineers to write onto the blockchain.
With the recent Parity multi-sig contract destruction
that caused an estimated $150 million USD worth of Ether to be
inaccessible, we’ve been increasing our focus on making smart contracts
both reliable and safe. The reason why the Parity contract destruction
was possible is because of a similar vulnerability that allowed a hacker to steal $30 million USD back in July.
is why unit testing, integration testing, and code review are a core
part of BlockCAT’s development culture. We strive not just to make smart
contracts more accessible, but to also raise the standard of smart
contracts that are available. When you deploy a multi-sig, you need to
be confident your money isn’t going to disappear tomorrow.
and for those that missed our tweet on the topic, you’ll be glad to
hear our company funds are not stored in a Parity multi-sig contract.
That’s all for this week. As usual, any questions can be sent to us in the “#ask-the-team” channel on our Discord, and directly to our email at [email protected] We’d be happy to hear from you!
At the moment we are working on a new specification for the Papyrus prototype.
Here’s the details:
— DSP has demonstrated the ability to create campaigns through smart contracts;
— We setup a scanner for our blockchain for advertisers for reviewing impressions purchase chains;
— And we are working to bring large supply partners to the platform.
week Alex Shvets, our Product Director gave a talk on “The use of
blockchain in RTB. How to scale a decentralised database to handle and
save hundreds of thousands of impressions per second” at HighLoad++ 2017.
Alex discussed the options for scaling blockchain and how to store
terabytes of data with the help of a blockchain. He also provided a
practical application which was the addition of a blockchain in an RTB
In a meanwhile look through the recent article by
Digitalist (SAP magazine on Cloud, Mobile, Big Data & Analytics)
about Papyrus and learn how we change programmatic advertising.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned!
WeTrust Community Update - WeTrust out and about , More positions open
WeTrust fam, it’s time for another Community Update. We’ve made some
great progress on the Trusted Lending Circle app, and the Alpha build is
now complete! At this point, the product supports all 3 ROSCA formats:
Random Flow, Predetermined Flow, and the Bidding Flow. Our work this
week has focused on restructuring the way new participants are invited
to join a Trusted Lending Circle, a very important part of the process
that we want to make sure we get right. At the same time, the team is
hard at work testing the Alpha build. We finished our third Team Testing
session this week, and are finding and resolving many bugs.
WeTrust out and about
Recently, Mivsam attended the 10th anniversary gala of our non-profit partner, Qualitas of Life
in New York and made some exciting progress on our partnership. She met
many people, ranging from business people to Federal reserve officers,
all following and interested in the blockchain movement and eager to see
where WeTrust’s product could be used to benefit immigrants to the US.
These efforts with Qualitas are just the start of our ramped up
promotional plans as we refine and execute our go-to market strategy,
follow our blog to find out what we do next!
addition, Leon and Damo attended the Crypto-Consciousness Conference in
San Francisco. It was a great chance to network with some like-minded
people who believe in the power of blockchain, and Damo took the
opportunity to meet in person with the rest of the team. Take a look at
Damo with the robot Sophia, who made an appearance at the conference!
More positions open
as our product moves ever closer to a beta launch, we are hiring more
people to help us usher our Trusted Lending Circles into the communities
they can benefit. To that end, we are hiring a Director of Operations
and a Business Operations Strategist, please send any referrals for
these positions to [email protected].
At this point, between our teams in the Bay Area and in Vietnam, we
have filled our needs for new developers, but we’re always on the
lookout for talented techies who want to join our team also, please send
referrals our way! As always, we truly appreciate any referrals we get
from our wonderful community.
