- Burst Reference Software 2.3.0 Release is on Testnet

- New Pool Software
BAT member harry1453 is developing new pool software under GNU GPLv3. This will give new and existing pool operators the freedom to setup pools without any licence violation.
- Burst WatchDog
Burst WatchDog is the codename for a distributed Burst Network explorer coded in NodeJS by community members gpedro and TheDailyToast. Designed to be ultra-scalable, this project is subdivided into packets of basic and extended functionality so that it can be launched in isolated VMs and containers:
- brs-crawler (P2P crawler for discovering and P2P querying of the network)
- BURST-NetX (API and frontend to query shared DB)
- Scavenger version 1.7.2 released
POCC has released Scavenger v1.7.2 containing a bug fix for SSE, AVX & NEON architectures that was causing only half the plot-capacity to be scanned. https://github.com/PoC-Consortium/scavenger/releases/tag/v.1.7.2
- New Community Website
Community member decrescendo has created a stunning and useful Burst website. If you would like to contribute to this site please contact him directly (main discord server). It is a work in progress and development is occurring rapidly
- BURST-DEX (new initiative resulting from recent community poll)
Based on the recent community poll, reddit user tank_72 has added BURST-DEX as a reddit topic. In this reddit article, he invites all interested parties to meet on the BURST-DEX server to work on the concept! “The survey clearly shows that a DEX is a real wish of the community! But having only one wish is not there to bring something to life – we have an obligation to work towards that goal to make it a reality….”
- BMF is providing an online wallet
It is generally recommended to use a local node, but if someone wants to use an online wallet, the BMF has provided a trustworthy node via https://wallet.burst-alliance.org:8125. This node is running on the BMF infrastructure (hosted by Hetzner)
- Scam Alert!
Never ever follow any invitation to enter your passphrase on any online-wallet or web-page. Nobody will pay you for example 30,000 BURST just because you seem to be nice! We heard from some ongoing phishing on FB – and we will not give any hint here – but please never ever open your wallet to suspicious internet-pages / links.
- Bounty Program Update
New bounties have been added to the trello board.
- New Bounty: YouTube Content Creation (max 5,000 BURST each)
You will be rewarded for YouTube content creation related to Burst. This can be tutorials, analysis, technical discussion, or information sharing. Each submission will be eligible to receive the maximum bounty award. The style, content, and quality of the video will determine the amount of the maximum bounty to be received – as determined by the BMF team.
- New Bounty: Ledger Hardware Wallet Integration (50,000 BURST)
You will be rewarded when you successfully create a BOLOS application integrating Burst with the Ledger AND get the application published in the Ledger Manager. Ledger wallets are powered by BOLOS, a unique proprietary operating system developed by Ledger. This system creates an individual shield around each application on your Ledger wallet to protect it from attacks from other applications. More information on BOLOS application development can be found here.
- New Bounty: Major Exchange Listings (25,000 BURST each)
Providing users with an easy entry point into Burst is important. The purpose of this bounty is to provide an incentive for community members to help get Burstcoin listed on major cryptocurrency exchanges. To submit a request for this bounty, enter the details of your communication and work with the listing exchange into comments. The more information you provide, the better your chances of receiving the bounty. Please include your Burst address so that we can reach out to you.
- NDS-Award for 1/24/2019 (2,000 BURST)
This week the BMF paid out the NDS-Award to 79 node operators running the newest version of BRS 2.2.7. Read more here.
