As the week ends, let's take a moment to look back at what we've achieved in the past few days and see what we've got to look forward to in the week to come.

Particl Desktop Update ๐Ÿ–ฅ๏ธ

Due to recent events and regulatory uncertainties, we're currently reviewing the viability of the current Particl Marketplace design within the evolving regulatory landscape and evaluating the best course of action moving forward.

As such, this week, we've focused our desktop-related efforts on wallet features, with a minor Particl Desktop update scheduled for the next few days, and are deferring work on marketplace features as well as the TAILS and Tor deliverables until after we complete our reassessment.

User Interface ย ๐Ÿ–ฅ๏ธ

We plan on completing testing the GUI 3.0.0 this weekend and will be ready to release it either late Sunday or Monday.

If you would like to test these changes before they make it into the master branch, you can change your active BasicSwap branch to the dev branch (using git checkout dev) and updating BasicSwap as you would typically do for a regular update.

Note: We wholeheartedly welcome community testing and look forward to your feedback and comments on the new changes introduced by 3.0.0.

As always, we thank you immensely for your passion and dedication to Particl and what it's working towards achieving. None of it would be possible without you all!

We wish you a great weekend we'll see you all back on Monday! ๐Ÿ‘‹
