Summary of Q&A with Dan Wasyluk
Q: Anything new to report?
A: On Syscoin side we're doing a LOT of 4.1 release-related work, which includes everything from improving our signed-build-release process to creating tools for the new cross-chain world that will suddenly exist, to more mundane things like updating spark for 4.1, seed nodes, explorer, and a lot of agent testing. Very much appreciate the additional users running agents in the testnet, super helpful.
On the BCF side a lot cooking too: we tested 'real AGX' minting for Lode, went well. Multisig wallets and everything, was pretty cool to actually do for a real client. Even tho teaching people that age 'validating and signing a multisig transaction' was fun. So Lode is moving forward full steam ahead, we have a 1.0.3 update of AGXPay that will roll out by Monday hopefully that connects with the real AGX asset. We have the pipeline for weekly AGX reward mintings ready to go as well. Pretty exciting, about to turn the whole machine on for real.
Working on AGXPay 1.1.0, has features Spark Mobile will inherit as well, Working on a potential loyalty points product/client as well, super early stages but would run on Syscoin Platform.
Q: Any date for sys 4.1? Or date for announcement?
A: We have a rough date yes but I dont want to jump ahead of the Foundation - I am just a happy contributor to these plans, they spearhead the announcing and how/when to do that. I will say the testnet stuff has gone very well, we're on the last component of the new system (agents) right now. Few issues have been reported thanks to the increased testing assistance we got from the Discord #testnet channel in the past week. We have candidate fixes for all of them just gotta move the fingers faster to get the fixes implemented. Once implemented and tested/verified we should have a clear green light. I know Foundation and advisors (like me) are very cognizant of the coming hoilday break and how that needs to be factored into marketing plans around such a groundbreaking release.
Q: Sound goods, so it might be more 2020ish right?
A: Last I heard there were plans to make big moves known pre-2020 but not activate said big moves until post-holiday so that the impact isn't lost in the ether of the holiday season.
I'm super excited about the bridge; I think there is a lot people dont even realize about it - stuff we didnt even realize when we created it lol. 80% of the way through we're like wait what if .... well that's new! First thing I think I'm going to do is store some of my SYS on Ledger.
