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 Marketplace Update ๐Ÿ›’

We're making some changes to Particl Marketplace in preparation for a better, more proactive, yet equally decentralized content moderation system powered by a decentralized LLM system.

This innovative approach stands at the intersection of blockchain and emerging LLM technology, and while it requires additional R&D before finalization, it shows great promise. We're confident this new system will significantly improve the current moderation process, improving both its effectiveness but also the general user experience.

Before the new moderation system is fully implemented, you can expect a Particl Desktop update featuring the necessary preparatory changes to drop. We'll keep you informed on the progress and provide more detailed information in a dedicated blog post once the system is nearly ready.

BasicSwap ๐Ÿ“ˆ

Decred Integration โœ…

We haven't met bugs or issues with the Decred integration this week, which signals that it will be ready to be pushed to the master branch imminently.

Wownero Integration โœ…

We've been reviewing community contributor Ofrnxmr's integration of Wownero and built a few test cases to ensure that it is integrated without issues.

We're happy to report that Wownero is now mostly functional on BasicSwap and that, like Decred, we'd like to give it a few more days of testing before pushing to the master branch.

Testing New Coins ๐Ÿงช ย 

Both Decred and Wownero are now available on the dev branch on Github. If you would like to test these new coin integrations before they makes their way into the master branch, you can change your active BasicSwap branch to the dev branch (using git checkout dev) and update BasicSwap as you would typically do for a regular update.

If you come across any issue or bug with the either coin, please let us know so that we can rectify it before pushing the changes to the master branch.

Work on New Website Continues โœ…

We've continued work on the new website which is now the main area of focus for our front-end and designer Crz.

Additionally, we've pushed some changes to as well to better communicate its mission and decentralized nature. Notably, an important "Terms and Conditions" page, which explains the architecture of the DEX as well as important considerations, has been added. We highly recommend that you consult it here.

ICYMI: Wednesday Privacy Roundtable ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

This Wednesday, we joined our friends from PIVX and Firo, as well as John Winter Murphy from Wownero, for an X Spaces in which we've discussed privacy coins, their transition into spendable currencies, and dived deeper into Wownero.

Although we've been hit with technical issues, the recordings are available for you to play back if you've missed the live event. Please note that the space is separated in two segments as we needed to relaunch it following a platform crash.

This year again, BasicSwap will be featured at Monerokon in Pragues. There'll be a workshop on BasicSwap today supplemented by a more formal presentation tomorrow on the main stage.

Just like last year, the presentation will be filmed and should be made available shortly after the event concludes.

If you're in and around Pragues this weekend, make sure to stop by the event and come say hello! You can consult the schedule here.

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‘‹
