  • Something is brewing behind the scenes, but what is it? The PoC Consortium is currently doing a secret hackathon. This is the third one since they joined Burst, and it’s no secret that the other two have been very productive. Unfortunately, what the developers are working on cannot be revealed yet. Our guess: it will stay a secret until it’s ready.
  • Quibus released the version 2.5.0b of Qbundle, the all-in-one Windows launcher for the Burst core wallet. Please note this is a Beta version of Qbundle 2.5.0 – do not overwrite your current installation with this version but rather add it beside the original if you want to try it out. You cannot run 2 versions at the same time!
    • The changelog includes many things: code refactoring, move from Internet Explorer to Chromium, paper wallet generator, GUI changes, and more.
    • Remember this is a beta version, so testers are welcome! The real 2.5.0 version will be released as soon as we are certain there are no bugs left.
  • What’s the “issue” with Multi-Out transactions? Some have pointed out the fact that even if they are successfuly sent, they do not show up in the wallet’s transaction list. Please have a look at a detailed response here.




Considering the ongoing hackathon, it looks like the PoC Consortium has some projects up its sleeve. In the meantime, we have quite some work to do in terms of documentation and community gatherings. We have yet to see more champions step up, and more people take part in the Directed Information Campaign and other evangelism efforts.

Thank you and see you next week.
