Syscoin Bridge Update
The dev team are making good progress on the bridge and the discoveries made during the bug bounty have played an enormous role in edging us closer to pre-launch lockdown. The main update from the team is that they have introduced a “balance manager contract” which simplifies the process of existing ERC20s crossing the bridge to the Syscoin side.

Summary of Dan Wasyluk Q&A
Q: Hi dan, is there a reason to not update the roadmap?
A: So we are still working on a roadmap update, the findings from bounty seekers may impact that thus the lack of update thus far. We also have some client requests at a protocol level that may make their way into this or a next update, we want to include those in a roadmap update as well
Q: Hi dan, is the Ethereum-Bridge and mobile wallet progressing well?
A: Yes both of those are progressing very well. The bounty hunter team has made some good findings which Jag has already mostly implemented fixed for- we'll post a full debrief once he's done and ready. This thing is going to be solid. Mobile wallet is moving along very quickly as well, i dont want to jinx anything but we're a bit ahead of schedule at the moment. I think we will have something awesome soon but i worry a bit on how long it will take to get app store approvals. Will prob just distro via apk and testflight while we wait. I'm very keen on getting zdag in there asap too... first zdag enabled mobile wallet.
Q: Hi Dan! Any wip images for the mobile wallet?
A: Oh i have a whip video but it looks more bad than good atm lol.I mean it's unstyled is all. We have all the mnemonic/bip39 stuff working, we're building in good multilanguage support from the start as well. Kinda important.
Q: Curious as to what the interaction between BCF-SYS-and ETH devs will look like. Will it be a formal website where stakeholders can rally around or something else?
A: we still have some thinking to do on that, i think something like that would be valuable
