SnowGem Weekly Update
Welcome to the SnowGem Project July 31st 2020 Community Update.
Latest News (MasterCard)
As a follow up from last weeks update, SnowGem CoreTeam are about to (individually) receive the first part of our contract with the MasterCard related investor, which we have already approved (We have read the contract before it has been sent). As soon as the Contract comes back to the SnowGem main office we can move on to the final stage of completion and reveal a little more to the community legally without breaking our NDA.
This MasterCard Contract is truly something special for SnowGem, with a little patience we can acheive great things together!
Planned Network Upgrade
After many months of stability with daemon version v3000457, it is nearly time to upgrade a new version to update the deprecation block policy inherited from ZCash and apply network upgrades. At block 1,414,160 which is approximately 40 days we will be running on the new version.
We are hopefully going to release the update next week, 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 (with additional feature as detailed last week) is largely complete, we are going to spend the weekend doing some final testing and debugging then we will be releasing to the Google Play Store and Apple App Store shortly after.
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.
Once BitFrost v0.0.7 goes live we will produce a seperate blog all around the new version and what to expect in the next version.
Further details on v0.0.6 can be found via our BitFrost Changelog here.
