August is here, so we wanted to take the time to update you on our progress in July.
Master Key Removal Vote
We began the month with a vote to remove our Safe Privacy feature. The Safe Privacy feature was always a topic of debate within the BitCash project and we wanted to let our community in on whether we would move forward with it our not. It was a landslide vote to remove this feature.
BitCash Stable Halt
On July 5th we were forced to deactivate the old version of BitCash Stable due severe manipulation. Our main dev, Christian, already had a plan in place to make manipulation a lot more difficult, but in order to avoid hyperinflation we deemed it necessary to deactivate until the hard fork.
New Team Members
On July 11th, we introduced two members that volunteered to help with BitCash and the PeerQ Project. Steppix is conducting the redesign work for PeerQ and has done a handful of social media graphics for the BitCash project and Silent_JJ is assisting in growing the PeerQ platform with his specialization in SEO.
On July 16th, we released our Q2 Transparency report that informs our community on how the BitCash funds have been allocated during the 2nd Quarter. You can read that report HERE.
BitCash Paper Bills
On July 17th, we released our “fun wallet feature” that allows for users to print physical BitCash Dollars and use the paper bills as seamlessly. You can use these as a gift, to transact with or for promotional purposes. Read more about BitCash Paper Bills HERE.
PeerQ Swap is a auto exchange that allows a user to easily swap Bitcoin for BitCash. The swap occurs through STEX exchange but does not require the user to have a STEX account. Now you can easily ask questions or create bounties on PeerQ without having to visit an exchange to trade for BitCash. Read more about PeerQ Swap HERE.
On July 23rd, BitCash held a hard fork that introduced a new wallet version that removed the master key and it will introduce the new nicknames with a viewkey for the webwallet and mobile wallet. This hard fork also reactivated a new version BitCash Stable. The new system introduced a price system with 2 prices, one price is a 7 day average and the other price is the spot price. The lower price of the two price is utilized to convert BitCash to BitCash Dollar while the higher price allows a user to covert BitCash Dollar.
The purpose of the two price system is to make the price less predictable so that one cannot repeatedly create new BitCash. Also the new system deters a user from quickly minting/burning whenever there is sudden price hike or dump because it is more advantageous for the price to stabilize before converting.
