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 πŸ–₯️

This week's desktop-related focus has been on progressing with the updates for Particl Desktop 3.3.3, particularly on updating dependencies and addressing reported issues.

Particl Desktop developer Arnold Bansemer is prioritizing feedback from sellers who have encountered issues, which includes those mentioned in our previous progress reports, ensuring these concerns are addressed at the outset of the 3.3.3 update process.

If you've encountered any specific issue with either the desktop wallet or the marketplace, please reach out so that we can fix those promptly.

User Interface Β πŸ–₯️

This week, we've continued pushing a steady stream of GUI updates to the dev branch, and will carry the changes over to the master branch within the next couple of days.

The changes of the next GUI update will encompass a wide range of fixes and improvements to a lot of the templates, but more notably, introduces larger updates to both the "Wallets" and the "Place New Offer" pages.

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 are now getting continuous support from community member ofrnxmr (nahuhh on Github), as can be seen here in the commit list on Github. We'd like to take this moment to thank him for his invaluable support and contributions! πŸ™

Anti-Griefing Protection πŸ›‘οΈ

We've begun the development and testing of an optional anti-griefing protection system to raise security for liquidity providers on the DEX.

This new feature allows users posting offers to require an additional on-chain PART fee from bidders, which is burned, adding a cost to fake/abandoned swaps or malicious activity such as liquidity locking and draining funds through on-chain fees required from the offerer.

This deterrent, while optional and at the discretion of the offerer, is part of our broader strategy to progressively implement safeguards against various potential abuses over time.
