Full update #2

Emc2 coin got new wallets for both Mac and Windows.
New version syncs immediately after install and implement test net.
The significance of this build is that it is the first build made in 3 years, and also the first build released by the new development team.
emc2-qt-wallet code has not changed since May 2014, but operating systems have, so  what seemed to be an easy and straight forward task of a few days turned into 4 weeks or more of hard working job.
The team had to go through the effort of not just adapting and building development and test environments but also diving deep into the code. Going forward next releases will be far easier.

In addition to wallets we also manage to create a new test net.
With wallets out, test net and 35 nodes, we can say we have accomplished the second step in our road map which is taking care of the infrastructure.

Of course this is ongoing process, the core team will continue with improvements.
We plan to make:

Qt wallets v0.9.2.1 – new looking filed ~ in 3 weeks
Qt wallets v0.13.3.0 – alignment with ltc core libraries ~ in 5-6 weeks

Releases after that will include more features as well as security improvements.

Web wallet, API, mobile wallets:
The next stop on our roadmap is: web wallet, api, and mobile wallets
Mobile wallets are ready, but they rely on web wallet and API which is one big package.
Since web development had to help infrastructure a little bit, we need to update our target release date and set expectations for the end of June.

Emc2 Store: 4you.emc2.foundation
Backend of emc2 Magento store is ready. SyncItGroup assigned two designers to take care of the front end.
They are waiting on emc2 web wallet and API to implement emc2 coin as a payment method.
We are thinking of releasing dev url this week to Slak users for testing, and to have production release in the first week of June. This release would only have fiat payments.
SyncItGroup will finish Magento plug-in before emc2 API for sure, so as soon as our web wallet is ready a store will get emc2 payment option. But even without coin integration it is good for the store to be online for review and testing.

Crowdfunding: emc2me.io
Last time we posted report we were still in negotiation process. Now developers are chosen, the budget is ready. Milos is finalizing specification.
We will have kick of meeting with devs on Friday. In next two weeks I will loop with our marketing experts and all other members willing to take part and to push this important platform to the surface.

Business development:

Voxtel – We held the meeting with Voxtel on April 28th. The fact that it was 4 hour long tells enough. First meetings are always risky bit this one was with great synergy. They are willing to move into blockchain. Now what would be next is for us to review all their products and to help them implement the coin for products that are good match.  For others that are not we are thinking of releasing new coin for Voxtel as side chain to emc2.  Emc2 coin will benefit from fees. Important: this is not quick approach, but since Voxtel is established and well connected business it is important that we keep moving along. You will feel the results.

Other: Every day we get interesting leads via our web site and LinkedIn. We are talking to two more business to form a common project that would consume emc2 coin, and maybe even launch ICO if needed. Very interesting stuff.
Let me have a clear picture and the view, and I will share it with you.
