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.

Consequently, the desktop and marketplace-related development has gone towards this objective for the week.

Decred Integration βœ…

We've successfully completed the Decred integration and have had successful swaps, on mainnet and in a production version, of Decred with Particl, Litecoin, and Monero.

However, we would like to take a few days more to test for edge cases and ensure beyond doubts that everything works as expected.

Once that is done, we'll announce the official end of the integration process, and it'll be possible for you to update BasicSwap and add Decred to your list of enabled coins.

Here is the relevant progress report in regards Decred:

Decred is now available on the dev branch on Github. If you would like to test this new coin integration before it makes 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.

If you come across any issue or bug with the Decred integration, please let us know so that we can rectify it before pushing the changes to the master branch.

Work on New Website Continues βœ…

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.
