Welcome to the SnowGem Project 21st August 2020 Community Update.
Latest News (MasterCard)
As a follow up from our last update, The SnowGem Foundation are now in direct partnership (legally) with our MasterCard partner, working together on a daily basis to bring top class services to new and exisiting users. We have been in close communication with our professional PR team, which we expect to see some results from very shortly, we should see some high level work here so that is something to watch out for!
We can now slowly start revealing parts of our plan with our new partner, firstly as we agreed, we will be performing a complete rebrand of SnowGem including the name which will be globally unique and business orientated. Nothing will change with regard to the core principles the project was originally based on, we will just be stronger than ever!
We dont know any more details regarding the "Rebrand" at the moment (name etc...) apart from it will be soon. Everything will be revealed in good time, please bear with us, everything is carefully planned to ensure any changes benefit us all.
We have some great news, we have expanded our development team. Bartosz Szpara or better known as @bartosz has officially joined the Dev Team working primarily on the BitFrost App. Bartosz is highly skilled full time Angular Developer with plenty of experience which will be invaluable. Welcome Bartosz!
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 in approximately 19 days.
The new daemon is now available to download here and we encourage users to not leave the upgrade to the last minute if you are managing your own upgrades, we need to update our Wallets and Masternodes. Snowgem ModernWallet will download the new daemon automatically and all managed services will also be automatic. There is no need to re-start your masternode from the ModernWallet with this update.
We have started work again on the new Asgard system that we started a few months ago which will be the ultimate Masternode deployment, monitoring and hosting platform. With new developers on board and particularly @void who is now looking after the Asgard system, we should see some good progress being made over the next few weeks. We will keep everyone posted!
BitFrost v0.0.8 is now availiable on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store with a number of basic SnowSwap pairs available which have been working well.
In approximately 2 weeks we will be releasing BitFrost v0.0.9 which will include support for...
- Sumcoin (SUM) - A Index Based Cryptocurrency
- Pirl (PIRL) - A Privacy Based Cryptocurrency
- Zero (ZER) - A zero fee instant and privacy based Cryptocurrency
Our swap service will be improved to add (not exclusively) Digibyte (DGB) swaps against BTC, USDT and ETH. We will follow up on this over the coming weeks before releasing the new version.
