Below are the release notes for our latest app release which is going out to the testers this weekend (we’ve rolled up 2 weeks of release notes in this one, as we missed the last one). In addition to these notes, we are finally moving our testnet to ‘Voyagernet’ (our term for pre-production) this weekend. As part of this, we will be adding 5-10 more masternodes over the weekend, as well as assisting our masternode holders to add their nodes. We will also be releasing a major update to the Tendermint code over the next week. This essential update will have a number of performance improvements, as well as allowing us to turn off mining of empty blocks (resulting in more efficiency).
We have also been working hard on our API and merchant dashboard (see the screenshot below). This will allow us to offer a full white-label app service to hotels, tour operators and activities providers. We already have a list of 150 hotels in Vietnam who have expressed interest, as well as operators in South Africa, Europe, Australia and Thailand who have all reached out to us.
A major accomplishment this week was our crypto payment integration. We will be making a couple of small tweaks next week to help reduce the spread and ensure we can fix the rate more effectively.
We have also included a bit of a roadmap for the tasks we are working on for the rest of Q4. At this stage, it’s likely that we’ll launch car rentals next, followed by the merchant dashboard. We also have flight bookings (with direct to airline bookings!), reward points, and a number of other great things on our roadmap for early next year.
