As we conclude the week, it is time to review the progress that has been made in the past few days. Let us take a moment to evaluate the advancements achieved in the past few days.
Particl Desktop 🖥
We're still completing the items outlined in our previous updates, which include the integration of the latest Core version into Particl Desktop, implementing necessary modifications, enhancing Tor server capabilities, and making a variety of minor improvements for an optimized user experience.
Particl Core 🔗
Core Codebase Maintenance 🛠️
As always, we consistently stay up-to-date with Bitcoin's latest version by regularly incorporating upstream updates into Particl Core. You can monitor these changes by visiting this link.
Particl Core 23.1.5 Released ✅
Particl Core 23.1.5 has been released earlier this week and is now available for download.
This is an important core update that fixes an elusive but rare bug reported by two users in which some coins would not send properly due to missing blinding factors.
The source of the bug took several days to locate and replicating consistently has been a challenge, but this update finally fixes it for good.
If you have trouble sending coins, you can verify whether the bug affects your wallet by typing
debugwallet. If you're affected by the bug, the solution is to run
rescanblockchain from a height before the first affected transaction.
We are adding a few improvements to the BasicSwap user interface, which will be merged shortly into the live version. This includes UX/UI improvements, QR code generator for deposits, general wallet USD valuation, and more.
Web Framework 🚧
While some members of the team attended the Monerotopia event in Mexico, we used some of our time together to make early strides into the upcoming web framework.
We can report that decent progress has been made on that end, with a couple of challenges being resolved, and we're excited to be making our first few steps towards what is sure to make the BasicSwap DEX much more accessible and user-friendly as an end-user product!
Monerotopia 2023 🧡
Last weekend, the team attended the awesome Monerotopia 2023 conference organized by the MoneroTalk crew.
We've had the pleasure to make a lot of new friends and network with some of the most brilliant minds in the privacy space as well as present BasicSwap DEX and Particl during a very well-received 40-minute presentation.
As we are settling back home, we certainly look forward in deepening the many conversations we've initiated with a broad range of people and project, and we are excited about the potential outcomes as we continue to move forward.
For more information on our experience, please refer to this debrief we've published earlier this week on Particl News.
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! 👋
