The Weekly Burst Report is a report published every Sunday meant to centralize and describe the major Burst events that happened during the week.
- On Monday, the Proof-of-Capacity Consortium celebrated their first month of Burst development by doing a recap of their achievements so far: the launch of a new block explorer, network observer and profit calculator, the launch of a TestNet, the creation of Linux packages, a new wallet versions bringing more stability to the Burst nodes and network, and more.
- The PoCC was proud to announce a new custom mobile wallet that will be launched soon. This thread contains a preview with screenshots. What you can expect: a simplified and accessible interface, a modern feel, transactions with QR code and no registration needed. With this application the PoCC developers show their dedication to fufil the goals that have been set for Burst.
- The mobile wallet is already in closed beta operating on MainNet on Google Play. Anyone who wants to try it out can send Rico666 his gmail adress on Discord or on the GetBurst forum.
- The application will first be launched for Android only. An IOS application would be a nice addition, I expect the PoCC to have it in their internal roadmap. As a reminder: BurstNation also announced the start of the development of their own IOS wallet last week.
- A new version of the PoCC wallet is going to be released soon. According to Rico666, “CG-Wallet is making huge improvements, although there is no release yet. But people can expect some nifty features from 1.3.6cg. It’s not official, but whoever is able to read the commits at github gets a pretty good idea what is upcoming”.
- @Quibus released a Windows launcher meant to simplify installation and use of the PoCC wallet. This package bundles the launcher, MariaDB, and Java. The installer also has an optional function to notify the user of new versions of software, and can automatically update your installation. This is a standalone project by a community member but proves to be very useful for Windows users who want to use the most stable Burst wallet.
- The Burst-Team mobile wallets are back up.
- The PoCC released a small optimizing plotter for Linux.
- We believe that a website that centralizes all Burst news and articles is a crucial resource, that is why we will focus on making burstcoin.ist better. Expect more articles and improvements in its design in the future, in order for this website to become the reference of all Burst-related news. Everybody is of course welcome to send articles to be reviewed and potentially published there.
- We are happy to say that our official Twitter account @burstcoin_dev has been gaining traction in terms of followers and engagements in the past month. Make sure to follow it to stay informed of the latest Burst news! Our Telegram group is also getting more active.
In this week’s conclusion I would like to emphasize the fact that we are definitely out of the period of inactivity and pessimism we have seen some time ago. The last month has been characterized by a lot of development of all kinds, by faith coming back into the coin and by waves of new Burst users, miners, enthusiasts and followers. Two weeks ago, in the first Weekly Report I announced the start of a new Burst era – I still stand by that today.
Thank you and see you next week,
