- We finally have detailed information on the upcoming big update: the pre-Dymaxion hard fork. It will bring PoC2, a larger block size, a better transaction efficiency, dynamic transaction fees and Multi-Out transactions. All the information of interest is compiled in a Reddit Megathread.
- The hard fork will be enabled on block height 500,000 (early June).
- A Burstcoinist article was published to explain in details the changes to the transaction dynamics. A recommended read to get a better grasp of the functioning of Burst underlying system.
- In essence, this is what you should remember: we are going from 1 transaction per second to a maximum of 80 transactions per second – effectively improving our energy efficiency by the same factor. Have a look at this infographic for more complete overview.
- Now, the PoC Consortium enters a very intensive testing period, where they “test, test, test, test and then test some more”, in the words of rico666. The Burst community is highly encouraged to participate in tests on the Dev TestNet. Please refer to this Reddit post for an explanation of the community testing process. And remember: woes encountered now during testing won’t be woes encountered during the hard fork itself.
- Community member umbrellacorp3 is working on rebuilding the Burstwiki. He is currently updating the whole Burst API and he is doing an awesome job. There can never be too many people taking care of the wiki in order to make it a true go-to place for all Burst enthusiasts!
- Burst is now listed on xchange.me, a new exchange with Bitcoin and Ethereum pairings. A full list of Burst exchanges can be found here.
- We have several new Telegram channels.
- Minor updates and improvements have been made to burst-coin.org, and more are planned, as explained in the previous report.
- Burst is going to be integrated as a payout method on shoop.de, the biggest German online cashback portal.
- Burst and its Proof-of-Capacity protocol were included in CBR Online’s Top 10 new blockchain technologies.
- We would love to see Burst added to whattomine.com – the community is encouraged to take the time to send them a listing request and show interest. We will get there eventually, but the sooner the better!
- You can now buy a piece of crypto art with Burst.
- A new episode of the Harvey Harddrive comic: Harvey hates a premine.
- Bonus: a very interesting picture™ is hidden in these comments. Beware, not for the faint-hearted.
Have you noticed? We are actually starting to see a lot of enthusiasm come back into Burst – in the community and markets alike. This was to be expected, given the great news that have been pouring in for the last two weeks. We will do our maximum and hope to see the community keep its newfound energy, redoubling efforts that will lead to more growth, more innovations, more exciting endeavours.
Thank you and see you next week.
