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 πŸ›’

We have continued, this week, a full in-depth review of the current design of Particl Marketplace, to determine its viability within the current context and whether design changes need to be brought to it.

We estimate the review should be done in the next couple of days, after which we'll be able to take the appropriate steps in light of potential findings and recommendations.

Decred Integration βœ…

We're still working on integrating Decred into BasicSwap and have made progress this week.

Notably, we've finally concluded the first secret hash swap from within BasicSwap on Decred's "simnet" (regtest), a significant milestone that confirms that all previous work done on this integration so far is functioning as expected.

Here is the relevant progress report in regards to that specific deliverable:

Work on New Website Continues βœ…

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

The purpose of the new website is to simplify and precise the messaging to better communicate Particl's mission and the goals it set out to achieve.


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! πŸ‘‹
