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›’

As the full in-depth legal review of Particl, including the current Particl Marketplace design and now BasicSwap DEX as well, continues, we're preparing a series of steps to improve Particl's long-term resiliency.

Consequently, most of our desktop development has focused once again on wallet-related features, although we've started working on marketplace-related changes once again yesterday.

Decred Integration โœ…

We've made breakthrough progress this week in integrated Decred into BasicSwap DEX. We've now successfully completed both Secret Hash (HTLC) and Adaptor Signature (PTLC) atomic swaps, bringing us close to finalizing the integration.

Next steps involve completing the integration of Tor and proper wallet encryption for Decred, and then we'll proceed with thorough testing after which we will officially release Decred on the DEX.

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.

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! ๐Ÿ‘‹
