    Burst Apps Team members Ohager and blankey1337 are proud to present BurstJS, a BURST JavaScript library. This library will make it easier for developers to build apps using Angular/React/Node.js/JavaScript. BurstJS is broken down into four packages:
    • @burstjs/core: Most of the core BRS-related interfaces and functions.
    • @burstjs/crypto: BURST-specific cryptography functions.
    • @burstjs/http: HTTP Lib for interacting with the BURST blockchain.
    • @burstjs/util: Utility methods for doing common things in BURST apps.
  • BRS 2.3.0 Beta1 released on Testnet
    BRS2.3.0  is on track with some new features :
    • gRPC-based V2 API. Currently only contains calls needed for mining, will be expanded in future if well received.
    • Migrate to GSON as JSON library
    • Significantly improve sync speed
    • Semver-based versioning system
    • Lightweight Desktop GUI, with tray icon (For windows and mac, can be disabled with “–headless” command line argument)
    • Automatically add conf/ directory to classpath
    • Configurable TestNet UI/API port
    • New getAccountsWithName API call
    • UI: Fix 24h timestamp display option
    • Allow development versions of wallet to run on TestNet only
    • Fixed bug where string validation could fail in certain locales

  • BURST Traffic Award
    BMF member Semaphore_Slim developed and introduced the BURST Traffic Award; a raffle awarding 1,000 Burstcoin to 10 lucky winners each Saturday for the next four weeks. Purchases of Burst from exchanges, regular transactions on the network, and donations to BMF all earn you raffle entries. Check out the introductory reddit post for more details on the raffle and the Week 1 reward announcement for the list of winners.
  • Reward setting not always working
    User burst_miner0 raised an issue on reddit that setting the reward recipient is not always working properly with BRS 2.2.7. This unpleasant behaviour will hopefully be fixed with the upcoming BRS 2.3.0 release. Meanwhile we hope reading the reddit could help you out with some workarounds.
