EXPANSE Voting, Roadmap, & Dapps & Details
Welcome to the twelfth edition of the Expanse Newsletter! This publication is a bi-monthly Newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of each month to share the news with our community. Keep in mind that breaking news can come at any time, but the Expanse Newsletter is a great overview of progress, news, and our current focus.
NEWS THAT IS HAPPENING NOW
The Expanse team has been quite busy working on many different things to really make the project take off. For starters, Christopher Franko has completed ILP implementation with Ripple, so we are one of the first Cryptocurrencies using this exciting new method of connecting a vast array of ledgers and networks. This is huge news over time, as the Inter Ledger Protocol of Ripple grows, Expanse gains massive connections around the world.
The new Expanse website is also nearly completed and is just being tweaked and edited at this very moment and will release imminently. Additionally, an exciting new Voting Dapp is about to be released for Expanse in time for the Elections in the USA, and best of all, we are releasing the Roadmap today (below) so you can see where we are at with all the amazing things coming to the Expanse community!
In other interesting news, Expanse has been added by Litebit.eu, which is quite exciting as this allows people to buy EXP with Euros. So if you want to directly purchase Expanse with Euros, now you can!
– EXPANSE ROADMAP 2
(This is a brief preview of the Expanse Roadmap 2, outlining some of the upcoming plans and developments for the near future of the Expanse Project, Platform, and Expanse Organization DAO.

We are redesigning our website and communication channels to more accurately represent our product to our target audience.
Brand Awareness Program Launches
This program will help bring awareness to Expanse by increasing activity in all of our communication channels as well as funding meetups, give presentations at universities and more.
We are always recruiting for top talent in the blockchain industry and surrounding communities. Experts in software development, media, marketing, the financial sector, political and social modeling, and more, all compose the diverse skill set that makes up the Expanse team. In preparation for the exciting developments to come, we are rapidly expanding starting with these four new additions to the team:
- Director of Brand Awareness Scott Williams
- Assistant Director of Brand Awareness Jon Stokes
- Director of International Business Romania Razvan Spiry
- Creative Director Jose Perez
Q1 - 2017
Proof of Concept’s Modules
Modules are important pieces needed for the Expanse DAO to function. Each module also acts as a stand-alone product. Together they make up the Expanse DAO
Identity Management Module
This module is publicly known as Borderless.tech. This module is the central module that everything else is built off of.
This module is a sub module of the Identity management module. Polls and their consequences are an extension of one’s identity. The voting module will help the DAO determine which proposal to fund.
Proposal Management Module
This module is publically known as EXP.LIFE. This module allows expanse users to create proposals or “quests” for others users to complete. The Expanse DAO will use this module to create and fund proposals for the community.
This module is a sub module of the EXP.LIFE module. In the Expanse white paper, we talk about users earning “Influence” and “Power” for participating in the voting process.
Q2 - 2017
MVP for Standalone Version of modules
Each module will have a standalone DAPP that users can consume and give feedback on.
MVP Module Documentation
Complete documentation for developers to integrate the MVP modules into their DAPPS.
Version 1.0 for Expanse DAO
All four modules will be far enough along that we can consider version 1 of the EXP DAO ready to launch and the community can start creating proposals to fund EXP projects.
EXPANSE UPDATE FROM FRANCE
“Meetups in Bordeaux (FRANCE) have been interesting and very constructive. It’s a circle of thought where several different people share their views on crypto projects and blockchain technologies and also explain what this technology is all about to new crypto enthusiasts.
I have been attending most of these bi-monthly Meetup sessions for the past 8 months, organized by Adli Bataille, president of the blockchain-oriented association "Le Cercle du Coin” based in Paris, and also a founder of the webzine “le-coin-coin.fr” where articles about Expanse and Borderless are periodically published along with EXP/BTC trend analysis articles.
A variety of people attended, such as the CEO of a development company, a global finance trader, the co-founder of an expertise company, along with blockchain enthusiasts and young developers. Attendants have been enjoying a round of beers offered by Expanse during the last session, but even without that they are always curious about Expanse and Borderless, and we are glad to share ideas and get feedback from this great social circle of blockchain pioneers.“ – Timothée Gimbert, Expanse French Ambassador

Expanse official DAO reserve is still at 10 million and in cold storage, untouched. This will not be used at all until the DAO is implemented, and then by design only, a small amount at a time can be voted to fund various elements of development. The team reserve is at 282094 and is planned to be used to fund development until the Expanse DAO is live in the next few months.
