Welcome to the first posting of 2017 for the Redd-Nation.
We are looking forward to what 2017 will bring to the table in the crypto-space. There is lots of interesting projects going around currently and as the potential of blockchain is realised, peoples ideas are really starting to take shape.
The eco-sphere is starting to mature and 2017 looks to be an exciting one.
In our own corner, we have been putting a lot of focus and attention into Redd-ID and the overall user experience. We have moved past the idea of launching as a web application and into being a browser extension that provides a more immersive experience.
We have now completed the first rounds of implementing the registering of IDs onto the blockchain while making it as simple as possible for the end user.
The next steps are integrating with select social networks, and start building the foundation for completely decentralised tipping.
Redd-ID is the social currency that rewards.ReddID Development
We have been saying it a lot, but Redd-ID is getting close!!
As a progress update, we have created and posted a short (2:45 min) video of what we have been doing.
You can find it either on:Youtube Redd-ID Browser Extension PreviewYouKu Redd-ID Browser Extension Preview – (chinese site)
Let us know what you think, or if you would like it posted elsewhere. Additionally, if you want to have it translated, we have the script for creating captions, or alternate voice-overs
The next step in our development is to integrate the extension with the various social network platforms.
So all the pieces are now finally coming together, and are being tested. Along side this, we are working on an information portal to educate on how all the pieces fit together.Developer Channel
Our public slack channel is open to help fellow developer in their quest of programming excellence.
We have a growing number of community members who have already joined, and looking into interfacing Reddcoin into their projects.
Discussion is open to all aspects of coding, and we have skills across quite a number of disciplines.
We have provided an auto invite for easy access to the Developer Channel
Invitation is open to anyone (novice to master) interested in learning or helping.Getting involved
We are a global community, and cross many borders but boundaries do not need to hinder us.
The crypto currency world has not reached its tipping point yet, but when it does, it is sure to escalate at an amazing rate. There are going to be many ups and downs, and an interesting ride for sure.
If you would like to get involved and dont know where to start, reach out and we will see where you can jump in @Deadpool has a great Trello site going with activities that need looking at.In Closing
Thank you everyone. We are looking forward to a fantastic year ahead. It has been quite the ride up to this point, and in this arena things move fast. We are confident that you will enjoy what we will start to deliver. There are lots of exciting projects out there, but none quite touch on the ideas we have in mind.
As always, there is still plenty to do, and there is no time for resting.
