  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER Vo. 1, No.16 – 12/15/2016 Vast Improvements for Expanse


    Welcome to the sixteenth 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

    First off, everything is coming along great with all the real world use aspects of Expanse. Innovative ideas like Borderless, Borderless Charity, Voting Dapps and so on help to improve Expanse, but in the end, in order for all the dreams and visions of the team and community to become a reality and make a major impact, Expanse must also be a huge financial success. As that is what will get the most attention, participation, and momentum. For that to happen we need a higher market cap, volume, and price. Vastly improving the core code of Expanse with a new consensus mechanism should help all the dreams and make investors, traders, and even the dreamers the most fulfilled and happy. So in the past few weeks, we have decided to greatly improve the core fundamentals of Expanse that many traders and investors care about. The underlying blockchain consensus technology itself. Currently, the Tendermint consensus system is now the leading candidate. Rather than waiting for Ethereum to produce Casper, we plan to integrate a unique consensus mechanism to show everyone that, without any doubt, Expanse is on the way to becoming one of the most innovative and unique blockchain projects on the market.Christopher Franko, Dan Conway, and others had commented in the past how innovative Tendermint was, and how the lead developer Jae Kwon was a visionary who was finding new solutions to some of the challenges in blockchain. So after looking into Tendermint myself, I found this was really an excellent solution for Expanse consensus, as it solved so many problems at once and offered us new ways to move Expanse forward into the future. I discussed the possibility with the core team, and Chris and Dan also had some unique improvement ideas right away to go along with it. Taking into consideration all of our initial ideas and plans for the improvements, I wrote up a draft paper as a general guideline to start discussions, inspire more investigation, and get the community participating to see how they felt about it. Overall, they loved the idea and the community has been buzzing with the possible improvements to come. Here is the first paper. Please keep in mind this is only a rough guide and details are subject to change with testing and as new ideas come about from all the wonderful interactions within our community.

    Expanse Tendermint dPoS Bond System with (Masternode) Validators

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fFUYhg4BEAiNqfh8E7cdYCtgEjqBybiRrR4nfT3cns8/editNote: Validators you can consider like Masternodes for Dash. There are some differences, but if you understand Masternodes, then you have the general idea of what a Validator in Tendermint would be for how we plan on implementing them into Expanse.Beyond that, as we are forking to new changes and starting Testnet by the end of the week, we have decided this is the perfect time to also consider implementing other improvements for Expanse. As these are major changes to the fundamentals, we have come up with a few rough draft proposals for the community to discuss. One of these, or some variation or combination, could be implemented along with the upcoming proposed change to Tendermint dPoS at the same time. Assuming everything works well on Testnet and there are no better options, this would only be done with community support and consensus.Please read fully and understand these, then provide constructive feedback in the community Slack if you wish. All of these proposals would vastly increase the decentralization of Expanse and move the project along. Nevertheless, at this time these are just ideas for the community to discuss and consider. No final decisions have been made, other than we want to move away from POW only for security reasons, and dPoS of Tendermint appears to be a good choice to consider.

    EXP.LIMITED

    Proposal to transform the 10 million DAO fund into a permanent revenue stream for greater security, rarity, and market price.By James Clayton, Expanse Community Managerhttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1DKKxrTAKJ8hhBzcGgRoEWIbo-w7oy04vQ0YglHt90E0/edit?usp=sharing

    EXP.PRESERVE

    Redistribution & Replenishment Proposal to stimulate growth, stability, and financial security for everyone.By Christopher Franko, Lead Developer of Expansehttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1Wzna5Rki-nQFagm5bMt0dIW26fngLOyPQBuiDvj5l50/edit#heading=h.gvi2wuhoobjw http://slack.expanse.tech

    TEAM EXPANSION

    We are currently seeking four new highly motivated candidates to be vetted for joining the Expanse core contributor team. Pay will depend on experience and bonuses will be given for securing foreign (to the USA) exchanges in their respective regions. Pay also depends on overall activity and results. It will not be paid in advance, but every two weeks. Pay will be in EXP only, not BTC.We are seeking four International Business Development candidates who are fluent in English and Chinese for the Chinese Business Development position; English and Russian the Russian Business Development position; English and Japanese for the Japanese position; and English and Spanish for the last position.Please join the Expanse Slack channel if you think you are up to the task. Only part time commitment is required, but ideally, we are seeking people looking for permanent positions who would help increase the value and awareness of Expanse to China, Russia, Japan, and various countries speaking Spanish.

    ADVISORY BOARD


    As we are getting closer to launching the Expanse DAO, and as upcoming changes could be decentralizing the funds or perhaps creating a revenue stream for the future of the DAO, we are now considering candidates for the Advisory Board from the Expanse community to join the project. If you are interested in joining the Advisory Board, the best way is to be active in the community and help the project along with constructive feedback and great ideas.


    DEVELOPER TOOLBOX

    In today’s issue, we highlight Expanse’s implementation of the web3 javascript API. This API is the preferred way to quickly and easily implement compatibility with Expanse and Ethereum into your applications. This Implementation acts as a drop in replacement and is directly compatible with both Expanse and Ethereum. It can be used to develop Expanse and Ethereum dApps or port your existing Ethereum dApps seamlessly to work with both with little or no required code modification.

    RESERVE REPORT

    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 158,783 and is planned to be used to fund development until the Expanse DAO is live in the next few months.

  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER Vo. 2, No.1 – 1/1/2017 A New Year, a New Expanse



    Welcome to the first edition of the Expanse Newsletter for the new year!

    This publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th

    of each month to share happenings 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

    Over the last year, the Expanse team has delivered on a variety of innovative concepts. Borderless Tech, Borderless Charity, Voting Dapps, Partnerships, and other creative ways of bringing Expanse into the realm of real-world use have been completed or demonstrated as a proof of concept. Recently, the team has also started focusing on improving the consensus layer of Expanse and some of the technology and design elements that traders and investors care about. This will help make Expanse more secure, and some of the changes will likely make Expanse more interesting to a wider audience.

    Changes include staking coins for interest with a new smart contract bond system, so everyone can easily gain rewards for holding Expanse. Ideas like implementing Tendermint (dPoS) delegated proof of stake, using Validators essentially as a masternode system, are currently being worked on and tested now. Speaking of that, the Tendermint testnet is now live, and we are excited to begin testing some of these new ideas. Obviously, it will take some time to complete everything, but we are pleased to announce that the Expanse Bond System can be implemented rapidly and will not take much time to start up.

    The really great news is that the main code work for the Bond system for Expanse has been completed, and it is ready for command line interface (CLI) based use once merged. We want to launch this with a new graphical user interface (GUI) that everyone can easily use so that it is accessible to everyone. That said, Dan Conway is currently building a new GUI for the Bond System, so our current plan is to release the Bond System first with a new custom GUI, then release the Validator system next. We also want to have voting on the blockchain using Expanse for any big decisions, so we will also have that implemented shortly.


    A screenshot of the Bond System GUI that Dan Conway is working on

    WHAT ABOUT THE DAO?

    Although we are spending time focusing on some of these exciting new changes, like Tendermint dPoS and the new Bond system, everything else already spoken about and planned should also be completed in 2017. Unless there are unforeseen delays, the original Roadmap v2 timeline should still apply for the Decentralized Autonomous Organization. Nothing is being forgotten or left undone, but it also makes sense to deliver on some big improvements first that move everything along at a better pace.

    WHAT ABOUT THE STATUS OF EXP.LIMITED AND EXP.PRESERVE?

    At this time we plan to implement the Bond system first as this system was universal in the various proposals and can be quickly implemented, giving rewards to people holding EXP and a reason to not just keep Expanse on exchanges. It also makes the most sense to later vote on the Blockchain for these big proposals, so we will simply finish the development for Expanse voting and allow actual voting on the Expanse blockchain. Most likely this will be based on total EXP held. While this is not perfectly fair, as the whales will have the most influence, they do have the most invested and this system cannot be gamed. So people will need to hold EXP to vote – the more the better.


    Here is a sample of some of the code for the new Bond system of Expanse.

    TEAM EXPANSION

    We are still seeking four new highly-motivated candidates to join the Expanse core contributor team. Pay will depend on experience, and bonuses will be given for securing foreign (to the USA) exchanges in their respective regions. Pay also depends on overall activity and results. It will not be paid in advance, but every two weeks. Pay will be in EXP only, not BTC.

    We are seeking four International Business Development candidates who are fluent in English and Chinese for the Chinese Business Development position; English and Russian the Russian Business Development position; English and Japanese for the Japanese position; and English and Spanish for the last position.

    Please join the Expanse Slack channel if you think you are up to the task. Only a part-time commitment is required, but we are seeking people looking for permanent positions who would help increase the value and awareness of Expanse to China, Russia, Japan, and various countries speaking Spanish.

    ADVISORY BOARD

    As we are getting closer to launching the Expanse DAO, and as upcoming changes could be decentralizing the funds or perhaps creating a revenue stream for the future of the DAO, we are now considering candidates for the Advisory Board from the Expanse community to join the project. If you are interested in joining the Advisory Board, the best way is to be active in the community and help the project along with constructive feedback and great ideas.

    RESERVE REPORT

    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 118783 and is planned to be used to fund development until the Expanse DAO is live in the next few months.

  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER -Tendermint Testnet and Bond System Update


    Welcome to the second edition of the Expanse Newsletter for 2017! This publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of each month to share happenings 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

    In this edition of our Newsletter, we are sharing progress with Tendermint Testnet and our new Bond system, including information about how the Bond system works so that the community can provide feedback before it goes live. Starting with Tendermint: Testnet is running, but right now it is hit and miss and not working smoothly. This simply means Tendermint dPoS will take more time. We are in contact with the developers, and the issues will be worked out and resolved soon. In contrast, the code for the Bond system is already written. Expanse developer, Dan Conway, projects that the GUI for the bond system will release in days. So let’s look at it in more detail.

    The bond system, as it currently stands, is based on buying Bonds of EXP in units as small as 100 EXP each. So almost anyone can afford to buy some EXP Bonds, give them as gifts for friends and family later, and so on. The timeline at present for Expanse Bonds to mature is one year, with payments (rewards) happening every 30 days for holders. For example, let’s say someone buys 1 Bond of EXP, (Each Bond is 100 EXP), that would issue a 1 EXP reward for every 30 days. In another example, holding Bonds worth 10k EXP would pay out 100 EXP per month. So after one-year, 10,000 EXP would total 11,200 EXP, which is a solid reward for long-term holders and a nice monthly payout.  

    Note: The Timeline for locking up EXP to mature is one year currently, but it is also possible it could be 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, as well, and this is currently being discussed in the Expanse Slack.

    To help everyone better understand this system here is information from our lead dev, Christopher Franko, on how the Bond System will work: 

    EXP.BOND 

    • Traditionally bonds are investment tools used by companies and governments to raise capital. The EXP.BOND differs in that the capital raised from bonds only serves to incentivize holding Expanse – more like a self-funded, secured savings account.
    • Test EXP.BONDS will cost 100 EXP, pay a coupon rate of 1 EXP per month, and have a maturity date of one year from the time of purchase. Bonds also have a multiplier for every 100 EXP used to purchase the bond.
    • The objective of the Bond system is to incentivize buying and holding Expanse off of the exchanges.

    Example workflow:

    Alice has 1000 EXP and wants to buy an EXP.BOND. She sends 1000 EXP to the bond contract using the contract.buy function. The contract then creates an EXP bond with a 10x multiplier. The 10x multiplier essentially says, “Alice bought 10 bonds at the same time and they are all bundled together into a single bond.” Every month Alice will be able to redeem 10x the amount of the coupon, which turns out to be 10 EXP per month. After a year has passed, she will be able to withdraw her original 1000 EXP invested. So she puts in 1000 EXP, earns 10 EXP per month that she can withdraw at any time, then after the maturity date, she can withdraw the initial 1000, making a grand total of 1120 EXP or 120 EXP profit a year per for every 1k EXP invested.

    Note: A Graphic User Interface for the Bond System is being built so people will not need any technical expertise to set up an Expanse Bond. It will be very easy for everyone.

    TIMELINE

    So, when will everything be ready? The standard answer, of course, is that the project is ongoing and always improving and growing, but Q2 2017 is when we are looking at all the main features, like the DAO and everything else previously talked about being fully operational. The Bond System, however, will go live momentarily – within the next ten days.

    Tendermint dPoS will take time for developing and testing, but assuming this remains the best candidate, it is realistic to assume this could take up to a few months. Much depends on how quickly issues can be worked out and if this remains the best option for Expanse. So far, it still does appear like Tendermint dPoS is the best option going forward, but much more testing is needed to be sure.

    Make sure and check out the latest Roadmap for more detail, and we do have a new White Paper and Roadmap on the way that will be updated to reflect all the new things going on with Expanse now.

  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER Vo. 2, No.3 – 2/1/2017 Expanse Bond System and Coinomi Android Wallet

    Welcome to the third edition of the Expanse Newsletter for 2017. This
    publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of
    each month to share happenings within 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 Bond System, (EBS), has now launched creating new opportunities for long term cryptocurrency holders and collectors. This new system has advantages for people that prefer a buy- and hold-strategy over day trading. The EBS also has a fresh new Graphic User Interface so anyone can easily use it. The EXP.BONDS will be transferrable so they could be used as gifts, and perhaps even a secondary trading market could emerge in the future.

    For the first release of the EBS, there is a 6-month duration to maturity and a limit in sales, with 1% monthly interest. EXP.BOND holders will be paid out interest every 30 days during the 6 months. At at the end of the 6-month period, they can cash out the matured EXP.BONDS for all the initial EXP invested, or at that time, the user can elect to keep them intact, receiving interest payments every additional 30 days for as long as they hold.

    EXP.BONDS purchases are locked up for the 6-month duration. While held, that EXP will not be usable for other actions like Votes and so on. Those EXP simply earn interest and stay locked up in the Smart Contract System, while rewarding users and removing some EXP from just sitting on Exchanges.

    The key advantage of this system for those that buy EXP.BONDS, is that this is smart contract-based simulated staking, so they don’t have to run any computers, nodes, or anything that has to be left on. The EBS can simply be started and it is fully automated until the end, paying out automatically every 30 days for the duration, offering simple and easy monthly rewards with no maintenance needed.




    DOWNLOAD THE EXPANSE BOND SYSTEM (EBS)

    https://github.com/expanse-org/bond-dapphttps://github.com/expanse-org/bond-dapp/releases

    THIS IS A LIMITED RELEASE FOR SAFETY AND SECURITY

    Safety and security of the community and project always come first, so this is not an unlimited release. At present, there will be 1000 EXP.BONDS for sale, so a total of 100,000 EXP worth. Every two weeks we will increase the new EXP.BONDS for sale, until they are fully open. This will allow real-world use with a manageable amount of risk so there is no danger to the Expanse ecosystem.





    EXPANSE BOND SYSTEM (EBS) PRESS RELEASE

    A new press release in regards to the EBS has been issued and sent out to various media organizations for media pick ups. Here is a copy of the text sent out to the media outlets and websites:

    Expanse™ Project [EXP] Announces Launch of the Expanse Bond System (EBS)

    Key Facts:

    • The Expanse Bond System, (EBS), is designed to incentivize and reward buying and holding EXP.BOND tokens for a pre-defined period of time.
    • The Expanse Bond System, (EBS), is designed to incentivize and reward buying and holding EXP.BOND tokens for a pre-defined period of time.
    • Unlike traditional currency-based bond systems, EBS uses only native EXP to reward those who participate.
    • EBS uses smart contract-based simulated staking on the blockchain with decentralized open source parameters.

    Feb. 1, 2017  WASHINGTON, NC. – The Expanse Project announces the development and launch of a new reward system, Expanse Bond System (EBS). It incentivizes EXP.BOND buyers to hold their tokens for a pre-defined time period with the prospect of receiving Expanse (EXP) tokens as rewards. It is conceptually similar to traditional financial instrument bond systems, except that it uses EXP tokens instead of currency.

    “Traditionally, bonds are investment tools used by companies and governments to raise capital. The EXP.BOND differs in that the capital raised from purchase of tokens only serves to incentivize holding Expanse—more like a self-funded, secured token savings account,” said Christopher Franko, Expanse co-founder and lead developer. “The objective is to incentivize buying and holding EXP off of the exchanges.”

    EXP.BONDS cost 100 EXP, pay a coupon rate of 1 EXP per month, and have a maturity date of six months from the time of purchase. EXP.BONDS also have a multiplier for every 100 EXP used to purchase the bond.

    “EBS uses only the native token of Expanse, and EXP.BONDS do not transfer into any other type of token or currency,” said James Clayton, Expanse co-founder and community manager. “EBS is a unique blockchain-based token system and not a currency system. It uses only the Expanse Cloud and our own ecosystem—no other company or financial institution is involved in any way whatsoever.”

    EXP.BONDS are transferrable, and since they can be purchased in units as small as 100 EXP, they make ideal gifts for friends and family. Visit www.expanse.tech or our Slack to get started and learn more.

    RESERVE REPORT

    Expanse official DAO reserve is at 9,990,000 million with 10K EXP secured in new smart contract to fund the new Bond System. This was with community consensus as this method was the best way to fund it prior to changing to dPoS without hard forking. It is likely partial validator rewards will replace this method of supplying the smart contract with interest for the Bond System in the future. As for the initial team reserve, it is at 37283.

  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER Vo. 2, No.4 – 2/15/2017 EBS 2nd Sale and Roadmap 3

    Welcome to the fourth edition of the Expanse Newsletter for 2017. This
    publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of
    each month to share happenings within 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

    We are pleased to announce the next sale of Expanse Bond System (EBS) available for the community and the release of Roadmap 3! As for the first limited release two weeks ago, it sold out completely—a very positive sign. Additionally, the updated EBS GUI will be available shortly for the community to help test and improve together. This time we are releasing a great deal more of EBS, 5000, worth a total of 500k EXP, and then, even more, will be issued in the next two weeks. So if these are sold out and you can’t get any this time, it will only be a couple weeks until the next EBS sale. If you are interested, hop into Slack and the community and team can assist you with how to buy and use the EBS.

    In other news, as you might be aware if you have been following Expanse, there is a 10 million EXP reserve and there was a 1 million development fund at the start that has been used to fund all development and costs associated with the project. This initial development fund is nearly depleted now. The 10 million is currently still untouched in cold storage, but 10k was used from the last remains of the development fund to jumpstart, to be paid back to the team from the 10 million later so we can cover costs, and 50k will be deducted for this sale directly from the 10 million reserve. So technically the EXP DAO reserve is now at  9,940,000 when taking this into account. We will be moving 50k for the current sale, and then another 50k for the next one two weeks later. This will only be used to help fund the EBS until the basic DAO framework has been launched. So there is no more inflation from the development fund, leaving the coders with a great deal of incentive to finish the EXP DAO soon.

    Speaking of the EBS, it is the most important development since the start of the project. This means EXP can now safely be stored in various smart contracts that are basically close to the modules of the Expanse DAO. So it is now a rather small step to safely store the 10 million in smart contracts rather than cold storage, all issues of trust will be eliminated, and the project is now so much closer to having the Expanse DAO live. In the next Newsletter, I will provide detail about all the new ideas and plans for how the Expanse DAO will be stable, safe, and give the community a great deal of influence and power in the direction of Expanse. We will also be forming the Advisory Board soon with the help and advice of the community, so if you are interested in being a part of it, make sure and hang out in our Slack and contribute to our daily discussions and the future of Expanse.

    A community member has also created a new mining pool so you can check that out if you like at http://clona.ru:8083https://github.com/expanse-org/bond-dapp

    Expanse Roadmap 3

    The new roadmap for Expanse and the EXP DAO

    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.
    Voting Module
    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 EXP 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.
    Gamification Module
    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.

    The Expanse Bond System (EBS)

    EBS is a new simulated staking system using smart contracts. This system allows people to lock up their own EXP in a smart contract and gain rewards for holding. The rewards in practice for users will be somewhat like staking coins, but without needing to run computers and nodes. Users will simply need to start to buy the EBS, and then they will gain the rewards automatically.

    EBS 6 Month Contract
    The first iteration of the Expanse Bond System (EBS) with a limited release has already launched, and on Feb 15th 2017 the next distribution of EBS starts, less limited with 5000 EBS for sale for a total of 500k Expanse. This is with a 6 month contract. That means tokens will be locked up in smart contracts for 6 months and buyers will gain 12% annual rewards paid out every 30 days. At the end of the 6 months it can all be removed from the Smart Contact, or it can remain and the buyer can keep gaining rewards every 30 days, and they can then cancel at any time.
    EBS Non Lock Contract
    The next version of EBS will be very much like traditional staking with the variables, although this is also a part of EBS and is simulated staking with smart contacts. This upcoming version will only require you to hold EXP as long as you want to gain interest, and every 10 days there will be a payout of 6% annually, and the contracts can be canceled at any time so there is only a requirement to hold EXP in the contracts for as long as people want to gain 6% annually.  

    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. Note: The Expanse DAO is likely to launch much sooner than Q2, in case of delays we will keep this as Q2, but don’t be surprised if the Expanse DAO launches much earlier.

    Delegated Proof of Stake Launch (dPoS)

    Tendermint is currently the leading Candidate for dPoS, but we are still testing and looking into the best options for Expanse. dPoS is also being delayed until after the DAO so that the community can directly vote on major decisions like this, or remaining proof of work, or using some other option the community prefers.

    Expanse Bond System (EBS) Trading Platform

    There has been a great deal of interest in the ability to trade EBS in the Expanse community, so we will build a trading platform for the Expanse Bond System so that people can trade their EBS in a safe and decentralized manner.

    http://slack.expanse.tech/

    TEAM EXPANSION

    We are still seeking four new highly-motivated candidates to join the Expanse core contributor team. Pay will depend on experience, and bonuses will be given for securing foreign (to the USA) exchanges in their respective regions. Pay also depends on overall activity and results. It will not be paid in advance, but every two weeks. Pay will be in EXP only, not BTC.

    We are seeking four International Business Development candidates who are fluent in English and Chinese for the Chinese Business Development position; English and Russian the Russian Business Development position; English and Japanese for the Japanese position; and English and Spanish for the last position.

    Please join the Expanse Slack channel if you think you are up to the task. Only a part-time commitment is required, but we are seeking people looking for permanent positions who would help increase the value and awareness of Expanse to China, Russia, Japan, and various countries speaking Spanish.

    ADVISORY BOARD

    As we are getting closer to launching the Expanse DAO, and as upcoming changes could be decentralizing the funds or perhaps creating a revenue stream for the future of the DAO, we are now considering candidates for the Advisory Board from the Expanse community to join the project. If you are interested in joining the Advisory Board, the best way is to be active in the community and help the project along with constructive feedback and great ideas.

    RESERVE REPORT

    Expanse official DAO reserve account is at 9,940,000 EXP with 60k (10k for 2 weeks ago and 50k now) total from it to be secured in new smart contracts to fund the new Bond System. This was with community consensus as this method was the best way to fund it prior to changing to dPoS without hard forking. It is likely partial validator rewards will replace this method of supplying the smart contract with interest for the Bond System in the future. As for the initial team reserve, it is at 7238 and is essentially depleted so it will not cause any additional inflation. This does not mean that work or progress will slow down. On the contrary, the core team will need to complete the DAO framework in order to be paid, so it is highly likely this may be completed earlier now, as there is a great deal of incentive to put in extra hours and get it done. We are also pleased with all the progress that has been made in so many different ways, and we are finally getting close to completing and improving the initial vision of the project with all the things we have learned along the way.

  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER 3-17-2017 - DC BLOCKCHAIN SUMMIT REPORT and NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS

    image

    In this special edition of the Expanse Newsletter we will be covering
    some of the events at the DC Blockchain Summit, and also we have some
    big announcements about the future that will be of interest to many of
    you. As stated in the last Newsletter we are beginning serious marketing
    and networking efforts at this point, and we really mean that, but
    first, let’s share the story of what happened at the DC Blockchain
    conference.

    In this photo, we have MikeD of Poloniex with our lead developer and
    co-founder of Expanse, Christopher Franko. Poloniex is perhaps the top
    Alt-coin exchange in the world now. Polo is an exchange that started
    from humble origins and evolved into one of the best. They did this
    through picking innovative projects the other exchanges missed out on
    early, and by and being honest about challenges over time with the
    community, giving them a great deal of trust, reliability, and status in
    the world of Cryptocurrency. Chris also had a chance to talk to some of
    the Poloniex staff, and they had a great friendly conversation about
    Expanse and Poloniex.

    In this photo, Chris is standing with Jasmine Tirado, Partnerships Specialist at U.S. Department of State.

    The greenroom was the snack room that every speaker in the event went
    to, in order to prep for their speeches they were giving and after. This
    was the premiere place to have our logo because every big name that
    attended, every keynote speaker, saw our logo.

    At the DC Blockchain Summit, Chris also had a chance to talk to Brock Pierce, Jeff Garzick, and Perriane Boring, along with Alex Tapscott, and four individuals from IBM, and many other people involved in Blockchain and Fintech. Interestingly, some were talking about ideas and future ICOs, for live technology that already works on Expanse. This was the final inspiration to start our own Blockchain Conference in the future, one focusing only on working technology, live demonstrations, Blockchain only, rather than using Blockchain more as a Buzzword for investments. A grassroots conference including the most interesting and promising upcoming cryptocurrency projects!

    Bestinblockchain.com and Bestinblockchain.org are already registered, but the websites will be built after the 10 Blockchain Partners are finalized. If your Blockchain project and the team are interested, make sure and contact the Expanse team and let us know.

    ANNOUNCING “BEST IN BLOCKCHAIN STARTUPS 2018”

    At present, many Blockchain conferences are mostly about the projects with the most money raised by ICOs, and they are about raising more money with additional ICOs. That is fine, and there is nothing wrong with people seeking some profits, but this is not really what Blockchain is about for those that really understand it and have been on the cutting edge for years. So, Expanse and some new Partners will be starting a grassroots Blockchain conference to go live in 2018.

    We are in negotiations with some potential Blockchain partners for this, this will be Blockchain only, no Fintech. The first 10 official Blockchain Partners will have an equal say on how this conference will happen, like a roundtable, with these general guidelines to start out.

    • The Best in Blockchain Startups will happen in 2018.
    • Teams and projects must be active for at least one year.
    • Blockchain only, no Fintech.
    • The conference will happen in the USA. (This is where some of the original potential partners are located)
    • The original 10 (max) Blockchain projects will do the groundwork, planning, design, and be featured prominently and equally at the conference.
    • The Best in Blockchain Partners can list each other as Partners if they wish, if they are unwilling to do that, then they should not ask to be a part of this.
    • This will be entirely nonprofit, nobody will make any money directly from sponsors, speaking fees, anything like that. Although Sponsors can help pay for the venue.
    • Blockchain Companies and Blockchain Exchanges will be welcomed to attend.
    • Tickets will be low priced, we want as many people showing up as possible.
    • Tickets will be Blockchain-based, of course. Working tech only is the theme here.
    • This will be about grassroots communities and decentralized concepts and self-governance.
    • The key focus will be a fun exciting event, with live streams, massive media coverage, professional photographers. Working technology rather than promises.

    UPCOMING CORPORATE PARTNERSHIP NEWS

    We are always working on bringing in new valuable partners to Expanse, that not only benefit Expanse but also our partners. This will be happening again soon. I cannot announce it until it happens, but the next special edition Newsletter will be coming out at an undetermined time, likely within the next few weeks or so, and when it is published all will be made crystal clear. Please don’t ask for more details, this is as transparent as we can be about it and we have to wait for our new Partner to be ready. Thank you!



  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER Best In Blockchain Startups 2018

    Welcome to the seventh edition of the Expanse Newsletter for 2017. This publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of each month to share happenings within 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.

    WHAT IS PIVX?

    PIVX, (Private Instant Verified Transaction), is a 1+ year-old community-driven and focused open source cryptocurrency. PIVX is based on a fork of DASH v0.12.0.x core with a custom Proof of Stake (PoS) code instead of Proof of Work (PoW) for achieving block consensus. That means you get all the technical features of masternodes plus the ability to earn rewards by staking. It is the first and still only PoS coin on the updated Bitcoin v0.10.x core, making it one of the most advanced and secure PoS coins available. As a community in PIVX, we also believe strongly in having an inclusive governance by the community.

    Thus PIVX is currently in the discussion phase on how to further improve the current masternode voting system to allow non-master node PIVX holders to also be part of the decision-making process and provide usage of its block reward budget, which would also be a first of its kind. PIVX has already had numerous publicly viewable live meetings regarding this topic and will continue to do so until a solution is devised and implemented. Lastly, at over 2200+ slack members (with 100s of active members daily), the PIVX community is rapidly becoming one of the most inclusive and expansive groups in this sector.

    WHAT IS NEXUS?

    Nexus is a quantum computer-resistant digital currency that has been heavily recoded from the ground up with future applications and architecture in mind. Some of Nexus’ unique features include 571-bit private keys (as opposed to Bitcoin’s 256-bit private keys), 512-bit transaction IDs, 1024-bit block hashes, decentralized checkpoints, Node Trust, and Unified Time. Nexus is the only digital currency to maintain three minting channels, including two proof of work channels (a Prime channel searching for dense prime clusters used in mathematics/encryption and a traditional hashing channel) and the Nexus Proof of Stake (NPoS) channel. NPoS is a completely updated POS algorithm that fixes many of the security issues with other POS models. NPoS also utilizes a trust-based system that allows the holder to build trust over time with the Nexus Network and increase their stake interest from 0.5% to 3% over 1 year.  

    Our Tritium release, coming very soon, will set the base line for many future features.  This includes the Lower Level Library (LLL), which is a polymorphic template library designed as toolsets that can be utilized by a C++ programmer without the need for repeated Lower Level Programming. One of these components is the Nexus Lower Level Database (LLD), which is an ACID database that functions many times faster than most current databases. But Nexus is about more than being a currency; Nexus is about the connection of people. The Nexus Network provides the basis for much more.  We have been working on building our partnership with Vector Space Systems and Galactic Sky to establish our Network outside of current land based systems. The Nexus Network will be broadcast from cube-sized satellites, (CubeSats), and as additional capacity is reached, the Network will be expanded to ground-based systems to transmit a fully decentralized global network.

    WHAT IS EXPANSE?

    Expanse is the first (surviving) fork of Ethereum launched in 2015 with a custom difficulty algorithm and code to help make the Expanse blockchain more resistant with almost no orphans. Expanse focuses on building custom, real-world use decentralized applications and is a community-based project with over 1750 slack members. The Expanse community manager, myself, is the founder of the Cryptocurrency Collectors Club, the most popular alternative cryptocurrency group on Facebook with over 10500 members. Additionally, we have a creative team with many connections in the world of cryptocurrency and business, giving Expanse a unique edge with marketing, networking, and building fundamental value and growth over time. Expanse also focuses on creating mutually beneficial relationships and partnerships, with talent, determination, and lots of hard work.

    Expanse is the first project to launch simulated smart contract staking with EBS, the Expanse Bond System, so that community members can stake offline and earn rewards, the bonds are limited and will later be tradable. The Expanse Project has developed a new patent-pending, blockchain-based voting platform with the potential to change the dynamics of future elections. We are in the process of trademarking its new name, VoteLock™. Expanse has even created a decentralized governance system with Borderless.tech, which others are planning to start ICOs for. We have working technology now. Expanse is currently attending Blockchain conferences, more to come, and is starting serious marketing and networking efforts. Expanse is also the founder of the Best in Blockchain Startups 2018 conference, combining efforts with other leading Blockchain startups and talented individuals.

    image

    Danny Sessoms of the Crypto Show will be at the Best In Blockchain Startups 2018. His words when asked if he was interested were, “Hell Yes!”  The Crypto Show is one of the best Blockchain shows out there, broadcast on the Internet and Radio, with an entertaining host, interesting guests, and diverse topics. We are thrilled Danny agreed and it will be exciting to meet up with all the cool personalities in the world of Blockchain at the Best in Blockchain Startups 2018 in Austin Texas.

    WHAT IS THE BEST IN BLOCKCHAIN STARTUPS 2018 CONFERENCE?

    This is a grassroots conference hosted by non-ICO based Blockchain projects that have been around one year or longer (general guideline, possible exceptions) and that have working technology now. There will be a maximum of ten Blockchain partners hosting the event. Their branding will be displayed in order of Market Cap on the Websites and at the event, with equal-sized banners and logos. The existing Blockchain Partners must unanimously agree on any new Partners. They are responsible for doing all the ground work and coordination for setting up the event, taking responsibility for liability concerns, and doing the actual work. At the event, ICO projects are welcome to serve as sponsors and attend the conference. This approach is unlike other conferences that are held to raise ICO funds or to promote ICO projects. The Best in Blockchain Startups 2018 conference will focus on projects built organically or without seeking outside funding initially. This event will happen in Austin Texas in 2018. The dates and venue are yet to be determined.

    NEWS FOR EXPANSE

    image

    Meet VoteLock™

    As mentioned earlier in the past newsletter, Expanse is preparing to launch a new brand identity system for its proprietary, patent-pending voting system on the blockchain. The name is VoteLock™ with the tagline “Because You Matter.”

    image

    Why did we choose to base Expanse on Ethereum instead of building projects or ICOs on it instead? The main reason is simply total creative freedom and the ability to experiment with the amazing open source code from the Ethereum team. Rather than just copying Ethereum like some and “making better decisions,” we wanted to try different experiments with the code, creating something truly unique while having total compatibility for Dapps. This allows Ethereum Dapps to be ported to Expanse and Expanse Dapps to be ported to Ethereum, growing the ecosystem in a respectful synergistic way. Gavin Wood of Ethereum built our first version of Parity, and we greatly respect the team and the project they have built. Expanse, by the way, is the original first surviving fork of Ethereum. From the start, we created a custom difficulty algorithm and block timing design to have minimal orphans and a more resistant blockchain at lower hash power than Ethereum. Other early forks did not plan ahead and have not survived using Ethereum as their core code. (We are the second fork of Ethereum; the first is now based on Lisk)

    LIST OF CURRENT PARTNERSHIPS

    This is a list of negotiated Partnerships where the various companies agreed on the term “Partnership,” usually in exchange for promotions and additional visibility in the world of Blockchain, or some type of mutually beneficial relationship.

    BEYOND PARTNERSHIPS, EXPANSE ALSO INTEGRATES WITH RIPPLE

    image

    INTERLEDGER PROTOCOL OF RIPPLE XRP

    Expanse is one of the first Alternative Blockchain projects to join ILP, Interledger protocol of Ripple. There are a few “Internet of Blockchain” projects out there, but this is perhaps the most promising of them all. The Expanse team is staying ahead of the curve and ready, just in case this works out and is a huge success. (It is an open source project and anyone can join) The Expanse team was one of the first to sign up to be a part of it back in September 2016.

  • EXPANSE NEWS Update– 4/15/2017 Collision Conference, Development Updates and China

    Welcome to the eighth edition of the Expanse Newsletter for 2017. This
    publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of
    each month to share happenings within 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.

    ALPHA STARTUP COLLISION TECH CONFERENCE MAY 2-4 NEW ORLEANS

    In this Newsletter, we will share how Expanse has been accepted as an Alpha Startup for the Collision Tech Conference, and we will be exhibiting there. We will go over development updates and share about our new marketing partners in China.

    To start off, Expanse has been selected as a prestigious Alpha Startup for the Collision Tech Conference in New Orleans! Only 10 percent of startups that apply are accepted. This gives us the opportunity to present Votelock™ and Expanse.Tech at this huge conference―not just sponsoring, but demonstrating our technology to a massive audience. Collision is “America’s fastest growing Tech Conference” with 20 thousand attendees comprised of approximately 3000 CEOs and representatives from 4500 companies from over 110 countries. This is an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase Expanse. (Expanse is planning to announce some important new developments at this venue, as well.)

    DEVELOPMENT UPDATES FOR EXPANSE.TECH

    The immediate goal for the development team is to improve Expanse tooling. For the past two weeks, they have been busy improving the experience with the Parity wallet and vastly improving the Block Explorer. The need to work on the Explorer arose as Parity needs to get the transaction history. A Perfectly reliable source is needed for that. They are using cutting edge technology for the Explorer, including reactjs, websockets, and semantic UUI for tooling.

    The team has also set up nodes for Parity and GEXP with our partner, Microsoft Azure. They are working on adding sections for the Expanse Advisory Board and the new development team to the main page; improving the experience with the Expanse official pool; launching Gander so that Expanse will be able to integrate into any app or application; and developing API for other developers so that third party devs can easily work with Expanse.

    image

    A new “Bond Explorer” is being built to explore the Expanse Bond System (EBS) and an updated EBS wallet GUI is also on the way. The EBS system itself is being enhanced and will update at block 600,000. There are other things coming on the Roadmap, but these improvements and updates are needed first to increase the quality and utility of the project. To date, the EBS has been successful at getting people to remove Expanse from exchanges and into smart contracts. As we expand this blockchain of simulated smart contract staking, there will be less resistance on the order books and more potential gains for loyal Expanse holders.

    All the main nodes to GEXP 1.6.0-beta-1. Everyone will need to update their nodes by block 600,000 because we are upgrading to the latest ETH protocols.

    INTRODUCING OUR NEW MARKETING PARTNERS IN CHINA, HONGICO.COM

    To keep it short and sweet, Hongico.com is the same Chinese marketing team that helped make PIVX a huge success. James Clayton. Expanse co-founder and community manager is working directly with their ambassador, SOOPNON. They have a proven track record of being the best at bringing attention to Cryptocurrencies that do not have great exposure in China. Soopnon, along with the team at Hongico.com, will be getting Newsletters translated, information shared, discussions started, and spreading all of the exciting news from Expanse to the massive crypto market of China! This process has already started and our attention in Chinese markets is going to be increasing dramatically as these translations are completed. This is a long-term partnership, and we will be continuing to market to China and working with Soopnon and his dedicated team. Note: Soopnon has also helped make Supernet and Komodo a success in China and is being added to the Expanse Team list.

    INTERLEDGER PROTOCOL OF RIPPLE XRP

    Expanse is one of the first Alternative Blockchain projects to join ILP, Interledger protocol of Ripple. There are a few “Internet of Blockchain” projects out there, but this is perhaps the most promising of them all. Expanse is staying ahead of the curve and ready, just in case this works out and is a success. It is an open source project and anyone can join. The Expanse team was one of the first to sign up to be a part of it back in September 2016.

    GAMEBOARD PRESS RELEASE

    Click here to see the original press release, or just read below:

    http://bitcoinprbuzz.com/press...

    May 22, 2017, WASHINGTON, NC. – The Expanse Project today announced a new partnership with Guatemala-based Power Development, creators of Gameboard, to integrate their incentive-based gamification system into the Expanse.Tech™ blockchain platform. Expanse.Tech is a fork of Ethereum founded by one of the earliest blockchain developers and cryptocurrency entrepreneurs out there, Christopher Franko. Co-founder James Clayton is also the founder of the Cryptocurrency Collectors Club, (CCC). Dan Conway, another blockchain expert, is the third Expanse founder.

    Gameboard, a gamification system already in production, is an online platform that allows the tracking of an individual’s gaming actions—measuring and comparing each member, team or department—using a rewards system to award points and badges at various levels. The rewards earned are incentive to play on the gamification playground now accessible at the www.gameboard.site.

    “Expanse is blockchain agnostic, using cutting-edge blockchain technology to build anything the community, team, and partners can imagine. Integrating solid, working dApps, like Gameboard, help the Expanse community evolve and grow while adding value for EXP holders, partners, and investors.”  – Christopher Franko, Founder of Expanse Project

    Omar Alvarez, Power Development CEO and Founder, describes Gameboard as a gamification playground that uses rewards to incent players, with built-in recognition and reporting capabilities. It can be used in many types of disciplines, such as marketing, education, and psychology, for behavior modification. Alvarez explains, “We have been searching for an established partner with proven blockchain technology experience and expertise, and we could not be happier with our choice to integrate with Expanse.Tech.”

    This new collaboration will partner the skilled developers of Expanse and Gameboard, creating a mutually beneficial relationship for both, while greatly enhancing the real-world use potential of the EXP token. Both companies are looking forward to collaborating to reach the great potential foreseen in the partnership.

    EBS (EXPANSE BOND SYSTEM) INSTRUCTIONS

    image

    Click the link below for detailed instructions on setting up EBS, keeping in mind that currently they are sold out. You can set up the dApp in advance and be ready for the next distribution.

    http://forum.expanse.tech/topi...

    image

    WHY CHOOSE EXPANSE?

    Expanse is the first stable alternative public Ethereum chain. Expanse has some key differences from Ethereum, in that it has unique dApps designed beyond just speculation and targeted at mass adoption and real-world use. For example, Borderless Corp., Inc. has created EXP.Life, a decentralized governance system being built on Expanse that can provide Borderless Citizenship ID, Marriage, A Web of Trust, Nation Creation, Public Notary, and Asset Registry. Votelock™ is another EXP.Life dApp focused on implementing and perfecting blockchain-based voting systems, working in tandem with any system where blockchain-based immutable voting and record keeping are greatly needed.

    Smart contracts cost 1/50th as much to run as Ethereum, making Expanse practical to use as a dApp platform. The design is highly efficient with less than .05% uncles per 1000 blocks compared to over 8% with Ethereum. The Expanse Bonds System (EBS) is the first to use smart contracts as simulated staking granting rewards for holding Expanse (EXP) – like a time-locked savings account – almost like a Masternode that you do not even have to leave a computer running to gain rewards from. Lastly, Expanse has a dedicated team and advisors, a marketing team in China, and a very low entry price and market cap with great potential to grow as it incentivizes holding with the EBS system.

    image

    One concern many traders and investors have about cryptocurrency is the concept of infinite tokens issued over time. While this is not a reality unless a crypto lasts for infinity, this is still a very real way that people think about the total supply of tokens and coins. Christopher Franko and James Clayton, the original Expanse founders, propose that we limit the total supply of EXP and put a cap on it in 80 years. This will not change inflation or impact utility in the slightest bit; this is not about halving block rewards, but simply capping them 80 years from now. The only thing this would change is the monetary policy and the creation of more scarcity for Expanse.

    This is a trivial change that we can easily put on Testnet and implement with a safe soft fork. However, this is a change that we feel is important for the community to vote on, so this will be an ideal way to test out the new Votelock technology of Expanse. The community will vote on this proposal in the near future, and if approved, we will implement the soft fork and change the monetary policy to be more limited in the long run, without having any negative impact on utility. Even in 80 years, Expanse is divisible and the ecosystem could work just fine this way.

    At block 42,000,000, the EXP block reward will go to 0. (If approved)

    That’s about 80 years from now

    About 350m EXP total Expanse to exist at block 42,000,000.

    What this proposal means is that in around 80 years Expanse would reach Block 42,000,000 with 60-second block timing, and then the block reward would go to zero, meaning no more new Expanse are generated in 80 years and the total supply would be limited as soon as this proposed soft fork goes into effect.

  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER Vo. 2, No.12 – 6/15/2017 TOKENLAB, MULTI-LANGUAGE EXPANSE, MONEYCONF 2017

    Welcome to the twelfth edition of the Expanse Newsletter for 2017. This publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of each month to share happenings within 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.

    TOKENLAB™

    image

    Introducing TOKENLAB™ from Expanse. This product has been in production for some time by the Expanse developers and is nearing release. TOKENLAB is just what it sounds like—a laboratory for creating tokens for crowd sales, tech projects—anything you can imagine. It will also be a super easy way for people to launch ERC 20 tokens on the Expanse.Tech™ platform with time-locked, integrated ICO contracts. This laboratory will also be integrated into our cutting edge Gander Explorer System, providing the ability to create your own tokens that live on the Expanse.Tech blockchain. They will reside in our safe and secure Expanse Mist Wallet, which is a powerful way to easily start up your own contract and store tokens.

    The purpose of this contract is to run an ICO campaign for a specific time period. You can deploy this contract and begin accepting any combination of the following tokens and currencies:  Expanse (EXP), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), or Litecoin (LTC). Investors will buy into the ICO for a specific period of time. At the end of this time period, the ICO contract will terminate and result in generating the token contract, with a supply and price that depends on the initial terms set up for the ICO and a number of sales.

    The token will represent a standard ERC 20 token that will be tradable on an exchange and later automatically on a decentralized Expanse-based exchange. However, initially, you would need to get your token listed on other well known centralized or decentralized exchanges, convincing them of your value proposition. To be successful, you will need to produce a well-developed business plan, backed by a solid team. When the ICO ends, the Token ICO sale owner will then transfer tokens to the investors using the transfer function of the contract.

    What will TOKENLAB do? TOKENLAB will manage the creation of the ICO contract and the subsequent issuing of the token at the end of the ICO. TOKENLAB will allow ICO issuers and investors to manage their ICO in a single location. With the coming Gander integration, all of this can be easily tracked on the blockchain, making the entire process seamless and easy to manage. Besides viewing in Gander, ICO investors will also be able to go to the TOKENLAB website, (currently in development), to monitor the ICOs they have invested in, tracking their progress. ICO owners can potentially create and track multiple ICOs, and they can choose to create their own websites for their individual ICOs, as well.

    MULTI-LANGUAGE EXPANSE WEBSITE LAUNCH

    image

    The Expanse team is proud to announce the launch of the Expanse.Tech Multi-language website. Expanse is for everyone, and that includes the entire world and all major languages and cultures. As a result, we are starting with a new website version that initially has these major languages designed to make it easier for people all around the world to learn about Expanse and to join our community: English, Chinese, Russian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish. (More to come) The website is ready right now, so go ahead and try it by selecting the language you prefer from the upper-right of the Expanse.Tech landing page.

    MONEYCONF 2017 MADRID SPAIN

    image

    As you may know, the Expanse team has been very busy participating in blockchain and technology conferences. We started by sponsoring the DC Blockchain Summit, then followed with attendance at the Collision Tech conference in New Orleans, Consensus 2017 in NYC, Token Summit in NYC, and Moneyconf 2017 in Madrid, Spain. This is one of the most powerful ways we can promote Expanse, gaining critical exposure to new prospective partners, while growing the user base, trust, and network effect.

    We plan to continue with this strategy, which is exactly what Ethereum did early on. Led by Timothy Suggs, Expanse Business Development Manager, and our co-founder, Christopher Franko, they are making great connections and promoting the benefits and capabilities of Expanse at these venues. We have formed a partnership with Gameboard, which is an extraordinary development, with great potential. In addition, another major partner is close to signing an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding), which will result in an amazing new collaboration. This partnership was close to sealing at press time, but will most certainly be firmed up for an announcement in time for the next Newsletter.

    EXPANSE BOND SYSTEM (EBS) EXPLORER

    Introducing the Expanse Bond System (EXBS) explorer from Expanse. With this new release, you can easily track EBS with Gander based on your address without needing to check the dApp. This in-depth feature provides a great deal of information for EBS (and Expanse Token) holders and it adds a great deal of utility to the EBS. This is also the base code that the upcoming TOKENLAB and ICO creation system will use. Note: EBS is a token on Gander as seen here.

    ETHEREUM AND EXPANSE

    image

    This is not about Ethereum vs Expanse, but rather, Ethereum and Expanse. That said, here are some reasons to consider Expanse.

    • Launched 9/15/15, Expanse is the first stable public Ethereum chain.
    • Expanse has unique dApps focused on real-world use and creating a network effect that will grow trust, value, and use over time.
    • Borderless™ Corp. allows for conducting business in the real world. Many other projects have anonymous developers and are not suitable to actual business partnerships with no ability to move past the speculative phase.
    • Borderless Corp., Inc. is creating EXP.Life™, a revolutionary gamification system.  Borderless Tech is a decentralized governance system that can provide Borderless Citizenship ID, Marriage, A Web of Trust, Nation Creation, Public Notary, and Asset Registry. Additionally, Votelock™, another Borderless Corp. asset, is focused on implementing and perfecting blockchain-based voting systems, working in tandem with any system where blockchain-based immutable voting and record keeping are greatly needed.
    • We also have partnerships with important blockchain related companies, such as Jaxx, Gameboard, HC.Blockchain, Centurylink, Microsoft Azure, Bizspark+, Changelly, Chankura, and Coinomi, with more soon to be announced.  
    • The Expanse Bonds System (EBS) is the first simulated staking smart contract system, granting rewards for holding Expanse (EXP), like a time-locked savings account that you do not even have to leave a computer running to gain rewards from. This is more secure than traditional staking or masternodes and much easier to use since tokens are locked in your private keys with no third party control. It is the first of its kind.
    • The Gander block explorer system is one of the most robust in all of the blockchain. An innovative TOKENLAB and DAO rating system is coming to Gander, along with a new website explaining all of this, providing integration with EBS.
    • Smart contracts cost around 1/50th as much to run as Ethereum, making Expanse practical to use as a dApp platform. We are also working on dual chain solutions so businesses can use both Expanse and Ethereum for different applications, saving costs when needed, and using the network effect of Ethereum when desired.
    • The team is friendly, available, and accessible. You can talk directly to the lead developers of Expanse.Tech on the Expanse Slack. We are not isolated from the community; rather, we are part of the community and working with them to build Expanse together.
    • The project had no ICO. Instead, it had a fair launch and a fair test launch and uses proof of work consensus. The team has worked hard almost non-stop since the launch of Ethereum itself, building up the value by improving and expanding the stable platform of Expanse.Tech.
    • No smart contracts of Expanse have ever been hacked, and funds have been secured since the start of the project. There is no outside funding, therefore no outside influence.
    • Using Votelock, and the upcoming Expanse DAO, the community will directly vote and participate with genuine user-based consensus for any important changes or updates to the Expanse.Tech blockchain and project.
    • This is not a clone of Ethereum. It is a unique public blockchain with different choices from the Ethereum team. A monetary policy will also be voted on by the community in the future using Votelock, rather than just implementing some choice without consensus.

    VOTELOCK AND MONETARY POLICY

    image

    One concern many traders and investors have about cryptocurrency is the concept of infinite tokens issued over time. While this is not a reality unless a crypto lasts for infinity, this is still a very real way that people think about the total supply of tokens and coins. Christopher Franko and James Clayton, the original Expanse founders, propose that we limit the total supply of EXP and put a cap on it in 80 years. This will not change inflation or impact utility in the slightest bit; this is not about halving block rewards, but simply capping them 80 years from now. The only thing this would change is the monetary policy and the creation of more scarcity for Expanse.

    This is a trivial change that we can easily put on Testnet and implement with a safe soft fork. However, this is a change that we feel is important for the community to vote on, so this will be an ideal way to test out the new Votelock technology of Expanse. The community will vote on this proposal in the near future, and if approved, we will implement the soft fork and change the monetary policy to be more limited in the long run, without having any negative impact on utility. Even in 80 years, Expanse is divisible and the ecosystem could work just fine this way.

    At block 42,000,000, the EXP block reward will go to 0. (If approved)

    That’s about 80 years from now

    About 350m EXP total Expanse to exist at block 42,000,000.

    What this proposal, in around 80 years Expanse would reach Block 42,000,000 with 60 second block timing, and then the block reward would go to zero, meaning no more new Expanse are generated in 80 years and the total supply would be limited as soon as this proposed soft fork goes into effect.

  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER Vo. 2, No.13 – 7/1/2017 TOKENLAB™ ICO PRE-ANNOUNCEMENT

    Welcome to the thirteenth edition of the Expanse Newsletter for 2017. This publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of each month to share happenings within 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.

    TOKENLAB™



    TOKENLAB™ ICO PRE-ANNOUNCEMENT

    This is a pre-announcement for Tokenlab (LAB) to explain why we are launching it as our first ICO. We’re also including some general information about the project. The main reason for doing so is that Tokenlab is our strongest product yet, so it will give attention to Expanse.tech™ and increase the value and network effect of Expanse. It makes the most sense to have our first ICO with our strongest product. The ICO will launch as fully working technology. In fact, the Tokenlab ICO will be created by Tokenlab as the first ICO of the project – fully proving the utility and value.

    What will Tokenlab do? Tokenlab will manage the creation of the ICO contract and the subsequent issuing of the Token at the end of the ICO. Tokenlab will allow ICO issuers and investors to manage their ICO in a single place. With Gander Explorer integration, all of this will be easily tracked on the Blockchain, making the entire process seamless and easy to manage. Investors will also be able to go to the Tokenlab website and see which ICOs they are invested in. ICO creators can also choose to launch their own integrated sites with Tokenlab.

    REASONS TO USE TOKENLAB FOR YOUR TOKENS

    ADDITIONAL DETAILS

    There will be time-locked smart contracts for this system. This is not only to protect those running ICOs by securing funds in safe contracts, it also protects buyers from having those running ICOs just dump them on the market. This means funds will be issued over time, and everyone is protected. Note: This will be optional and projects can use different settings. It will be public information.

    The Tokenlab team (or an independent organization) will review any ICOs on Tokenlab, in depth, and share their objective and fair opinions so that buyers will not be going into sales without having them reviewed in advance. It is not just about making money, it is about supporting real projects that have long term potential.

    All future Expanse ICOs will run on Tokenlab, and holders of LAB will be rewarded from those future ICOs and any other ICOs on Tokenlab. Expanse Partners may also launch ICOs on Tokenlab. Lastly, this will be multi-blockchain in the future, expanding Tokenlab and the Expanse eco-system into a variety of quality projects.    

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    1. WHAT IS TOKENLAB?

    Tokenlab is an integrated system to create Tokens and assets on the Expanse.tech Blockchain. This will also include the ability to start ICOs with smart contracts designed with time-locked distributions built in to protect investors from funds being dumped on the market. Tokenlab is also the first ICO of Tokenlab utilizing the LAB token that will be tradable and pay out a percentage of all new Tokens created by Tokenlab. For example, when Expanse creates the Votelock™ ICO on Tokenlab in the future, any holders of LAB would receive a percentage of Votelock Tokens later. When anyone else creates an ICO using Tokenlab, a percentage also goes out to all holders of LAB.

    2. WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE LAB TOKEN?

    The LAB Token will be the Token sold at the launch of Tokenlab and as the first sale on Tokenlab. Tokenlab will be operational at this time, and after LAB Tokens are issued new ICOs can start on Tokenlab. A fee of LAB is required to start any new ICOs to prevent spam. This fee will be dynamic and based on levels of customization and change with market cap. LAB Tokens will also function as a reward mechanism and a decentralized ownership stake in the Tokenlab project. Rewarding holders of LAB and LAB tokens will also be tradable on exchanges, to be announced, and as negotiated in the future.

    3. WHAT PERCENTAGE OF NEW TOKENS WILL LAB HOLDERS RECEIVE?

    By holding LAB Tokens in the new Expanse Wallet, holders will automatically receive 5% (combined and distributed to all LAB holders) of new Tokens in their new Expanse Mist Wallet. Users will only have to hold LAB Tokens in their Expanse Mist Wallet to receive all future rewards. This will happen automatically on the blockchain and will be effortless. This will also provide a greater distribution of all crowd sales on Tokenlab by Expanse, making every new ICO more decentralized and more evenly distributed.

    4. WHO IS BUILDING TOKENLAB?

    Tokenlab is the first official ICO of Expanse.Tech, and is being built by the Expanse.Tech Team. Additionally, some new people are joining for this project, and perhaps the Expanse team. The information about the new members for this specific project is to be announced at a later date.  

    5. WHEN WILL THE THE SALE START?

    This will be in 2017. The sale will have a countdown and be advertised. The official announcement will come later. This is the pre-announcement so those interested in running ICOs on Tokenlab or participating, have information in advance about what is coming and what is being worked on. This should be within months, or sooner, but no official date will be announced until the product is fully tested and everything is ready.

    6. HOW MANY LAB TOKENS WILL BE AVAILABLE?

    There will be 100 million LAB Tokens as a fixed supply, assuming all sell. LAB Tokens will be burned (destroyed on the Blockchain) as each ICO is launched. It will be a fixed decreasing supply. The cost will be a variable amount of LAB to launch an ICO based on levels of customization and special features for each ICO. This cost will help prevent spam ICOs with no value wasting review time, while also increasing the value of LAB Tokens. This dynamic cost and decreasing supply, by design, will be sufficient into the far future no matter how popular Tokenlab may become.

    7. WILL THE TOKENLAB TEAM ALSO RECEIVE LAB TOKENS?

    No. It is commonplace these days for projects to raise lots of funding and also keep a very large premine at the same time, Tokenlab, however, will have a better distributed ICO will all LAB tokens going directly to buyers and none withheld for the team. We feel there is no legitimate reason to also keep ICO tokens along with funding raised as most projects have been doing. Although future projects using Tokenlab to build their own ICOs will have that option if they do have a reason or desire to do so.

    8. WHAT ARE THE LIMITS OF THE SALE?

    The sale will have no minimum limit of funds raised, and whatever is raised will be used as revenue at the sole discretion of the Tokenlab team. If only a small amount is raised, Tokenlab will still launch, just with minimal advertising. If a great deal is raised, then, at the discretion of Tokenlab, more will be used on promoting Tokenlab and bringing more quality ICOs into the system, generating more rewards for LAB holders. The maximum amount or cap of the sale will be $9,625,000 USD in value, but only cryptocurrency and tokens will be accepted for the initial Tokenlab ICO – no fiat.

    9. HOW LONG WILL THE SALE LAST?

    The sale will have a countdown and last 14 days total. The sale will be announced at a later date. Again, this is the early pre-announcement. There is still a lot of work to do before everything is ready. Even though the tech itself is very far along in the development process, that is only part of the equation.

    10. WHAT PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR THE TOKENLAB ICO?

    Expanse, Ethereum, Bitcoin and Litecoin will be accepted for the main Tokenlab ICO. Bitcoin and Ethereum only will be accepted for the presale, as we have to use the funding to advertise for the main sale and we need higher liquidity to do so.

    11. WHAT WILL BE THE COST PER TOKEN OF LAB?

    LAB Tokens will cost $0.10 cents USD each. Any LAB tokens not sold will be burned/destroyed at the end of the final sale, increasing scarcity. So if all LAB tokens are sold the total supply will be 100 million LAB, the total would be 50 million LAB if only half sell, and so on. No fiat will be accepted, but as multiple cryptocurrencies and tokens are being accepted and prices change all the time, this is the easiest way to show potential costs in advance.

    12. WILL THERE BE A PRESALE?

    There will be a presale that you can sign up for at the landing page www.tokenlab.io. There will be a 15% discount for buying early. Buying early means you are guaranteed to receive LAB tokens and a 15% discount. The presale will have 25 million tokens at a 15% discount, $0.085 cents each, $2,125,000 USD max. Then 75 million tokens later at $0.10 each for the main sale. The total then would be $9,625,000 million for both sales maximum in USD value. No OTC trades will occur for this; all of this will be through the landing page system.

    13. HOW WILL THE TOKENS BE DISTRIBUTED?

    The Tokens will be distributed automatically to the new Expanse Mist Wallet to be released soon.

    14. WHERE DO THE PROCEEDS FROM THE TOKENLAB SALE GO?

    The proceeds of the sale will be considered revenue for the Tokenlab team to be used solely at their discretion.

    15. HOW DOES THE TOKENLAB TEAM PLAN TO USE THE PROCEEDS?

    Proceeds will be used for continued developing and expanding the platform; hiring more people; for advertising and legal expenses; and as previously stated, as revenue to be used solely at the discretion of the Tokenlab team. This will be used over a two-year period for continued development and growth of the Tokenlab project into multiple blockchains. Tokenlab will not be only for Expanse, but will also launch ICOs on multiple platforms in the future – all EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) compatible platforms first, then beyond.

    16. IS THERE A MINIMUM PURCHASE FOR LAB TOKENS?

    There is no minimum purchase, but the exact mechanisms will be released later. We want this to be well-distributed and we are carefully examining other ICO systems to see which were successful creating a wide and fair distribution and which were not. We will use and design the best models to create the fairest distribution.

    17. ARE THERE NETWORK FEES TRANSFERRING LAB TOKENS?

    Yes, there will be a small transfer fee and a small amount of Expanse will be needed to be held in the new Expanse Mist Wallet under development.

    18. WHEN WILL I RECEIVE LAB TOKENS PURCHASED?

    At the time of the sale, your LAB Tokens will be registered on the Blockchain and held in the private key and wallet that you control. Once exchanges launch with LAB, you will be able to trade your LAB tokens, hold them for future rewards, or use them to launch your own ICO on Tokenlab. Rewards from new ICOs could start shortly after the release of your LAB Tokens.

    19. WILL THERE BE A WHITE PAPER?

    Yes, there will be a detailed technical white paper for Tokenlab released before the sale.

    20. WILL THERE BE A LANDING PAGE AND WEBSITE?

    Yes, they are under development right now.

    21. WHAT IF I CANNOT BUY OR DO NOT RECEIVE LAB TOKENS?

    Every precaution will be taken by the team to make this as safe as possible, but this sale will be as is, at your own risk. The Tokenlab and Expanse team assumes no liability whatsoever for Tokens not received, bugs, problems, delays, or any unknown risks with Blockchain tech. To participate in the Tokenlab sale, and for creating sales on Tokenlab, you assume all risk. That said, it’s important to understand that the developers and advisors overseeing this project are some of the most experienced out there, evoking a high level of trust.

    22. LOCATIONS RESTRICTED FROM PURCHASING LAB TOKENS?

    We are discussing the situation with legal counsel, and it is yet to be determined. The laws regarding token sales vary from place to place and can be contradictory. We would like to have everyone in all locations participate, but this is yet to be determined. It will be announced at a later date if there are locations or countries that will not be eligible to participate in the sale.

    23. HOW WILL TOKENLAB ADDRESS SCALABILITY CONCERNS?

    Every campaign will go through the Tokenlab platform and will be coordinated for maximum efficiency and stability. As the platform grows, we will publish metrics around the performance and highlight how we continue to improve performance. Additionally, we will implement a queue that will make sure that we don’t overload the network. The queue will allow for the maximum number of concurrent participants to ensure stability. Lastly, in the future, Tokenlab will be multi-blockchain, and the Expanse team will also implement technology to advance the transaction scalability of Expanse itself.

    24. HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE IN THE LAB TOKEN DISTRIBUTION?

    The Tokenlab Website is being built, but for now you can sign up for notifications at our new landing page for the Tokenlab ICO:

    ETHEREUM AND EXPANSE

    This is not about Ethereum vs Expanse, but rather, Ethereum and Expanse. That said, here are some reasons to consider Expanse.

    • Launched 9/15/15, Expanse is the first stable public Ethereum Chain.
    • Expanse has unique dApps focused on real world use and creating a network effect that will grow trust, value, and use over time.
    • Borderless Corporation allows for business in the real world. Many other projects have anonymous developers and are not suitable to actual business partnerships and cannot move past the speculative phase.
    • Borderless Corp., Inc. is creating EXP.Life, a revolutionary gamification system, and Borderless Tech, a decentralized governance system that can provide Borderless Citizenship ID, Marriage, A Web of Trust, Nation Creation, Public Notary, and Asset Registry. Additionally, Votelock™ is focused on implementing and perfecting blockchain-based voting systems, working in tandem with any system where blockchain-based immutable voting and record keeping are greatly needed.
    • We also have partnerships with important blockchain related companies, such as Jaxx, Gameboard, HC.Blockchain, Centurylink, Microsoft Azure, Bizspark+, Changelly, Chankura, and Coinomi, with more to be announced.  
    • The Expanse Bonds System (EBS) is the first simulated staking smart contract system, granting rewards for holding Expanse (EXP) – like a time-locked savings account – That you do not even have to leave a computer running to gain rewards from. This is more secure than traditional staking or masternodes and much easier to use, tokens are locked in your private keys, no 3rd party control. The first of the kind.
    • The Gander block explorer system is one of the most robust in all of the Blockchain, and an innovative Tokenlab and DAO rating system is coming to Gander, along with a new website explaining all of this, along with EBS integration.
    • Smart contracts cost around 1/50th as much to run as Ethereum, making Expanse practical to use as a dApp platform. We are also working on dual chain solutions so businesses can use both Expanse and Ethereum for different applications. Saving costs when needed, and using the network effect of Ethereum when desired.
    • The team is friendly, available, and accessible. You can talk directly to the lead developers of Expanse on the Expanse Slack. We are not isolated from the community, rather, we are part of the community and working with them building Expanse together.
    • The project had no ICO, it had a fair launch and a fair test launch, and uses proof of work consensus. The team has worked hard almost non-stop since the launch of Ethereum itself, building up the value by improving and expanding the stable platform of Expanse.
    • No smart contracts of Expanse have ever been hacked and funds have been secured since the start of the project. No outside funding, no outside influence.
    • Using Votelock Tech and the upcoming Expanse DAO, the community will directly vote and participate with genuine user based consensus for any important changes or updates to the Expanse Blockchain and project.
    • This is not a clone of Ethereum, this is a unique public blockchain with different choices from the Ethereum team. A monetary policy will also be voted on by the community in the future using Votelock, rather than just implementing some choice without consensus.

    EXPANSE VALUE PROPOSITION

    http://blog.expanse.tech/post/...

    VOTELOCK AND MONETARY POLICY

    One concern many traders and investors have about cryptocurrency is the concept of infinite tokens issued over time. While this is not a reality unless a crypto lasts for infinity, this is still a very real way that people think about the total supply of tokens and coins. Christopher Franko and James Clayton, the original Expanse founders, propose that we limit the total supply of EXP and put a cap on it in 80 years. This will not change inflation or impact utility in the slightest bit; this is not about halving block rewards, but simply capping them 80 years from now. The only thing this would change is the monetary policy and the creation of more scarcity for Expanse.

    This is a trivial change that we can easily put on Testnet and implement with a safe soft fork. However, this is a change that we feel is important for the community to vote on, so this will be an ideal way to test out the new Votelock technology of Expanse. The community will vote on this proposal in the near future, and if approved, we will implement the soft fork and change the monetary policy to be more limited in the long run, without having any negative impact on utility. Even in 80 years, Expanse is divisible and the ecosystem could work just fine this way.

    At block 42,000,000, the EXP block reward will go to 0. (If approved)

    That’s about 80 years from now

    About 350m EXP total Expanse to exist at block 42,000,000.

    What this proposal means is that in around 80 years Expanse would reach Block 42,000,000 with 60 second block timing, and then the block reward would go to zero, meaning no more new Expanse are generated in 80 years and the total supply would be limited as soon as this proposed soft fork goes into effect.

    INTERLEDGER PROTOCOL OF RIPPLE XRP

    Expanse is one of the first Alternative Blockchain projects to join ILP, Interledger protocol of Ripple. There are a few “Internet of Blockchain” projects out there, but this is perhaps the most promising of them all. Expanse is staying ahead of the curve and ready, just in case this works out and is a success. It is an open source project and anyone can join. The Expanse team was one of the first to sign up to be a part of it back in September 2016.

  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER Vo. 2, No.19 – TOKENLAB UPDATE, TECHCRUNCH DISRUPT PHOTOS, IPHONE MOBILE APP

    Welcome to the nineteenth edition of the Expanse Newsletter for 2017. This publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of each month to share happenings within 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.

    TOKENLAB SALE UPDATE

    We are pleased to report the Tokenlab Exclusive Sale was a success and sold out in the first couple of days. The sale was scheduled to last up to 14 days, but as there was enough demand, it only lasted a couple days. The EXP-only Exclusive Sale was created so that everyone in the Expanse community would have a chance to buy in before heavy advertising or potentially big buyers might buy in later. This Exclusive Sale was not for immediate funding for advertising or development, but in fact, the plan for this EXP is to be used over several years. We intend for the $1m USD raised in Expanse to be worth much more, if possible, as that would benefit the community greatly and the financial situation for the Tokenlab project.  

    The next phase of the sale, the Presale, just launched today and has the following details:

    • The price will be $0.09 USD per LAB token. It will accept EXP and ETH initially, running for a maximum of 30 days.
    • After 15 days, assuming the sale has not already sold out, BTC and LTC will be added to the sale.
    • Once the sale sells out, the final sale will start shortly thereafter for a price of $0.10 per LAB. The EXP raised in this sale is also to be used over years and not dumped on the market. The ETH raised will be used for advertising and development as needed, primarily for advertising at first. This way there is no negative impact from Expanse raised for Tokenlab, only EXP locked up and off the market. The advertising funding from the ETH raised will help promote Tokenlab, and by extension, it will also promote Expanse.  

    If you are interested in the next phase that has just started have some EXP or ETH ready, in the correct Wallets, on the correct Blockchains, that you control the private keys for. Do not send from an Exchange, only send ETH to the ETH address and EXP to the EXP address. There will be a 30-day countdown for the sale to end so there is no rush, so make sure you understand how to participate in the sale before sending Tokens. 

    We also understand the community is anxious for paid advertising to start, but this is all being set up and will begin shortly. The Exclusive Sale was for Expanse community members to get a chance, the Presale is for raising significant funding in Ethereum that we can use right away for advertising. To participate in the sale now go to http://www.tokenlab.io/ - First come, first serve.

    Important: Read and understand all instructions to be released before participating in the Tokenlab ICO. There will be an address for Ethereum and an address for Expanse. You must send the correct addresses for each different Blockchain. Only send ETH to the ETH address, only send EXP to the EXP address. Failure to do so will result in the loss of your tokens.

    TOKENLAB AT TECHCRUNCH DISRUPT 2017

    Timothy Suggs and Alex Eaton were recently at Techcrunch Disrupt promoting Expanse and Tokenlab at a Booth for Startup Alley in San Francisco. Lots of great exposure for Expanse and Tokenlab was gained at this prestigious Techcrunch Expo in San Francisco, both known for being leaders in cutting edge technology and startups. Timothy Suggs has been traveling around the world attending many conventions representing Expanse, and we have been getting more and more attention from doing so. By moving to the next level and actually having booths to demonstrate or hand out flyers and info, this gives us even more serious attention to big players in the industry of Blockchain and startups. Alex Eaton also joined Timothy at this latest convention as an ambassador for Expanse. Obviously, we plan to add even more people over time representing Expanse at expos and conventions, as meeting people face to face is a powerful way to show how serious we are about the projects and their future.

    IPHONE EXPANSE MOBILE WALLET

    Some other news that is in progress with Expanse is the development of mobile wallets, now including iPhone, as well as the previously announced Android version. This is coming in the future, not immediately, but here are some current screenshots of the wallet being tested on iPhone. The developers working on this project are familiar with getting applications into the Apple ecosystem and assure this will happen, as we asked about the challenges of getting an application approved by Apple. Keep in mind this is development news and not release news, as they are still testing and developing the wallets. Once the Mobile Wallets are 100% ready we will put out a press release and share the news with everyone.

    INTERLEDGER PROTOCOL OF RIPPLE XRP

    Expanse is one of the first Alternative Blockchain projects to join ILP, Interledger protocol of Ripple. There are a few “Internet of Blockchain” projects out there, but this is perhaps the most promising of them all. Expanse is staying ahead of the curve and ready, just in case this works out and is a success. It is an open source project and anyone can join. The Expanse team was one of the first to sign up to be a part of it back in September 2016.

    SHOPPING WITH EXPANSE MADE EASY BY COINPAYMENTS

    You can shop at many merchants right now using the Coinpayments Platform. We are one of the Alternative Tokens listed on Coinpayments, and they are a reliable trustworthy payment provider that works much like Bitpay does for Bitcoin.
