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.

First, if you want to make a fresh install of BasicSwap, the repository is now This is now the active BasicSwap repository and is where future updates from contributors will be pushed to.

However, if you've already installed BasicSwap on a device, you need to point to the new repository location to apply future updates to your instance.

If you're on the master branch, type the following commands in the terminal of your BasicSwap node:

git remote set-url origin
git pull

If you're running the dev branch, type the following commands in the terminal of your BasicSwap node:

Decred Integration โœ…

We've continued testing Decred's integration this week and encountered a couple of issues, which we've been fixing along the way (Github). We're still in the process of testing things out but are confident the integration will be finalized in the coming days.

Wownero Integration โœ…

We've also been testing the Wownero integration done by Ofrnxmr and haven't encountered issues so far. We will continue testing in the next couple of days and adding fixes in should it be required.

Testing New Coins ๐Ÿงช

Both Decred and Wownero are 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.

Miscellaneous โš™๏ธ

We've also worked on these general fixes/improvements to the codebase.

  • Remove protobuf entirely and encode encode/decode the binary format directly instead.
  • guix: Update packed version.
  • Hide "Wallet has no active account, please view the readme." when running particl-bench

New Particl Website โœ…

We haven't made a lot of progress on the website this week as most of our efforts and time have gone into the new, improved moderation system of the marketplace as well as testing the new coin integrations on BasicSwap.

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‘‹
