We have made a few mockups of what the installer will look like and decided to share it with the community. We're still playing around and paused the development on the installer because we have to spend the limited time we have on the truely pressing matters.
Let us know what you think, we're always up for a chat on our Slack channel!
If you want to read more about the installer I'd like to point you to our previous blogpost.
The ShadowCash team is pleased to announce that it has gone into the Microsoft Azure program via their Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) platform.
What is Microsoft Azure?
Microsoft Azure is a cloud-computing platform and infrastructure created by Microsoft. It is a growing collection of integrated cloud services which allows clients to build, deploy and manage applications through Microsoft-managed data centers.
What are the benefits?
ShadowCash providing a blockchain platform in the cloud is immensely valuable for both Azure and the ShadowCash ecosystem. Azure is innovating with different Blockchain technologies and is able to experiment with new frameworks and tools. Our users on the other hand are able to support the network by running a full ShadowCash node in the cloud. Our collaboration with Azure will be excellent for the testing and development of ShadowCash itself and for anyone building applications on our framework.
Where do I get these goodies?
A user of our community named HyperSpaceChain / dahaka has been a tremendous help in getting everything set up. Unlike some shitcoins that used Azure for nothing more than a cheap hype, we took this matter more seriously. We've been added to the BaaS Artifacts and included is a detailed tutorial tailored to setting up Shadow. Check it out here!
The team has also been taking up some side projects like bringing ShadowCash to ATMs! We've already programmed everything and are awaiting the integration into the existing network of ATMs.
The ATM software is open source which allows us to implement this on our own time, we still have to wait for the ATM producer to verify and accept our pull request. We're optimistic that it will be merged soon.
We'll provide more information once the pull request has been merged, until then we won't be disclosing anything.
Trello Community Hub
We want to involve the comunity more in the development of some projects. That is why we made a community trello open to the public! You can view it over here.
The community can make suggestions and we'll add it to the Trello community board. We hope this sparks some creativity and action, so you can help shape our project in a more direct manner. Every contribution counts!
We got a bit tired of constantly being bombarded by our new members that are searching for all the URLs they need. So we've added a "Quick Link" navigation bar to our website, so if you need anything it's probably right there :)
We think it is time to clear the air up once and for all about Isidor Zeuner. Currently he is unresponsive to both e-mail and telephone so there is that. The funds are in his control, but remain untouched.
Let us be clear that this is not the end of this story. We'll make sure to give his name a bad reputation on any online freelancing platform he resides.
This guy became a ghost, his website went offline and his telephone numbers became unresponsive. We've been digging through heaps of information and everything leads to a dead end. This guy might as well be dead.
If anyone has any information about Isidor Zeuner, then contact us on Slack.
Is this the end for a cryptographic review? no.
There are currently a lot of tasks in progress, most of them nearly finished. We'll be releasing more details once we have a viable solution ready. We have a few surprises ready for you.
