SnowGem Weekly Update
Welcome to the SnowGem Project August 7th 2020 Community Update.
Latest News (MasterCard)
As a follow up from last weeks update, SnowGem CoreTeam have individually signed and returned their part of the contract for our MasterCard related investor and we are planning to sign the final part on Tuesday the 11th of August. We will create a seperate announcement to explain everything in more detail next week.
We have some great news, our Developer Filip Storkan or better known as @storkandstars has officially joined the CoreTeam as a full time Developer working primarily on the BitFrost App (UI and UX particularly). Filip is highly skilled with plenty of relevant experience and will make a excellent addition to the team. Welcome Filip!
Planned Network Upgrade (Reminder)
We are still planning to release a new updated daemon which will go live on and after block 1,414,160 which is approximately 33 days.
The update is nearly ready to be compiled and we will release shortly to give everyone time to complete the necessary arrangements, we need to update our Wallets and Masternodes. Snowgem ModernWallet will download the new daemon automatically and Asgard/Team managed nodes will also be automatic. Please wait for further announcements on this, we have plenty of time to upgrade!
BitFrost v0.0.7 has been released and is now availiable on the Google Play Store. We are waiting for confirmation from the Apple App Store which usually takes slightly longer due to Apple's review process but we hope to see the new version ready for download soon.
BitFrost v0.0.7 is a major release with significant security and performance enhancements. A select number of swaps are available in this version which we encourage users to try and give feedback on their experience.
We will see a quick successor from BitFrost v0.0.7 to BitFrost v0.0.8 because most of the backend and support services will be present in v0.0.7, so please check out updates when they are available.
