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 💻️
We're still completing the items outlined in our previous updates, namely including enhancing Tor server capabilities and making a variety of minor improvements.
Please note, that we are observing a delay that is impacting the development process of Particl Desktop which we are working on resolving.
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.
Testing of Litecoin MWEB Balances 🪄
This week, we identified a last-minute issue related to Litecoin on BasicSwap whic we've resolved with a BasicSwap update.
If you have been using BasicSwap with Litecoin enabled, we strongly recommend updating your software as it fixes an issue that could cause Litecoin swaps to fail consistently. Please follow the instructions provided here to update your BasicSwap to the latest version.
We're now ready to officially launch Litecoin MWEB balances, so stay tuned for an official announcement about it next week!
User Interface (GUI 2.1) 🖥️
Ahead of the Litecoin MWEB release, we've rolled out a minor update (currently under the
dev Github branch) to BasicSwap's GUI that improves the display of information on the order book and includes several refinements to the Wallets page. This update will hit the
master branch shortly next week before BasicSwap's Litecoin MWEB release.
We're also preparing for more comprehensive updates to the GUI as part of the broader version 2.1, which we expect to release shortly.
We've also made a series of improvements and bug fixes to the DEX.
- Failing reverse bids at
checkQueuedActionsnow set to "Error".

- Propagate errors from

Particl and BasicSwap Media 📺
Dr. Kap's Privacy Hour ⌚️

Providing Liquidity to BasicSwap DEX 📊
We'd like to take a moment to highlight BasicSwap's automated market making companion script. When used in conjunction with a 24/7 cloud instance, this script enables a hands-off approach to providing liquidity on BasicSwap's order book.
With the correct setup, the script will not only automatically republish your offers once they expire but also adjust their prices to stay aligned with the current market rate. Moreover, it allows for the setting of a premium percentage over this rate, opening up opportunities for passive income derived from arbitrage.
For those interested in learning how to configure both a cloud instance of BasicSwap DEX and the automated market making script, please refer to the following video tutorials.
