Summary of Q&A with Dan Wasyluk 

Q: How is the mobile wallet coming along?
A: Mobile wallet is coming along very well! We are releasing UAT5 candidate today and the UAT4 candidate was pretty tight: 0 bugs, 2 enhancements. Both implemented for UAT5. We also found some places to optimize things. And our bip84 work got accepted into the official repo which is pretty awesome - now SYS is the example coin for bip84 altcoin support

Q: Has Jag and team fixed that last bridge bug yet?
A: I think they have but are working on the test/validation part of that. The art-of-bug guy they are working with is a pro.

Q: Some time ago it was mentioned you guys contacted Binance regarding US listing. Any update about that?
A: We are talking to Binance US but it will take time, it’s an entirely different organization than main Binance. Our contacts at main Binance don’t have any influence over the US entity, so we're forging some new relationships.
