This is the first official update by the voise team.
weekly updates will describe everything to come in the following days
regarding the development of the VOISE platform and its ecosystem.
to all contributers and bounty participants for your support, it has
been very exciting and the crowdsale a complete success.
A total of 825,578 tokens were distributed to 1151 unique addresses.Of which 24,767 were distributed as bounty rewards.The VOISE team has kept 41,279. Check wallet
As you probably know, after the success of the crowdsale, $VSM was listed on the livecoin exchange this week.
Well, this was just the first but we are currently in contact with many other exchanges, the next one to get listed on being cryptopia,
an exchange mostly used to trade small and new coins. We think this
will attract some trading volume as well of exposure of the platform
is a great option for the reasons stated above but also because it’s on
the blockfolio app which most big traders use to keep track of their
investments trough different exchanges.
only we will add $VSM to cryptopia but some users were concerned with
showing the voise token on coinmarketcap, so we have already contacted
the coinmarketcap team to list the token there which will for sure
attract some attention and possibly new users and investors.
that we have distributed the bounty (after some delay due to the
ethereum network saturation), we will reopen the slack channel for
serious users who care about our development and want direct contact
with the devs, anyone is free to join and drop opinions, advice or make
have also purchased the voise.com domain and new servers, we are
already working with a team of web and blockchain developers to complete
the web client. The coordinator of the development team is Jayanand Sagar, tech consultant of newsbtc and getventive. He is very professional and does a great job harmonizing our developers.
Soon we’ll already publish the new homepage as well as an updated roadmap with estimated endlines.

for believing in our project. We are very excited to see our dreams
finally come true and the platform materialize piece by piece.
Hugh (“Hughlang”) and Magnus (“Souleye”)
will be helping out in our public Digix reddit / slack channels. They
have been long term supporters of Digix, have been around since the
beginning, and have understood quite well what Digix is creating. As
such, it is with great pleasure that I welcome them as Digix’s Community
Managers. They will assist Digix in answering any queries or FAQs in
the Digix slack or reddit and manage the community.
Local Intern Hired
have hired an intern at Digix. Please welcome Y.S Chang, who is
currently a student at Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS)
with a Major in Accounting. He will assist Digix with research, event
planning, and other miscellaneous activities that can spur his knowledge
on Ethereum in return for contributing his time and resources to Digix.

Ongoing Security Audits
week, our third party auditors at SmartPool have provided the first
complete report for our security audits a week earlier than expected!
However, as all good security audits go they did find a few security
concerns that we are going to work through to resolve. We will be
engaging them for a secondary and final security audit once we have
resolved the issues that were shared with us. What we need to do now is
to have the auditors to provide us with a risk assessment that will help
us categorize these issues into following:
Is it a vulnerability that can be exploited?Is it a quirk that doesn’t have any serious implications?Can the issue be mitigated without code changes?Is it a theoretical attack?Is the attack economically feasible?
*The key tenet at Digix is that we will not
launch broken code, because the repercussions and reputational /
financial damage are permanent to the whole Ecosystem. We will only
launch secure code that we are confident in, as evident in our recent
ETC redemption contracts that were deployed 3 weeks ago, and has seen
over 80% of redemptions successfully executed within the month of
deployment. We value security over rushed delivery, and will continue to update our supporters regularly on our developmental progress.
Trusted Offline Price Feeds
have been developing a new way to run fully run our marketplace
on-chain while being able to provide real time price feeds. This new
method allows us to have a trusted price feed that can be used for
on-chain ethereum contracts without having to spend any gas to keep an
up-to-date real time price feed. This pattern is also useful for other
things that we are planning on building on top of DigixCore in the
Global Fee Controls
have added a way to globally disable our demurrage and transaction fees
as a way to increase user adoption. The idea is that we needed our
contracts to be able to have the option to disable or modify the fee
schedule at any time as a way to encourage mass adoption of our
platform. This requires some minor code changes and an additional
controller and interface so that we can eventually tie this into the
DigixDAO governance system and allow votes on demurrage/transaction
Chris Hitchcott (Digix Core Dev)
began the week by additional additional test coverage for the core2
controllers and interfaces, with end-to-end Token Interface (EIP20)
tests added (including some failing tests to be fixed by Anthony that
were pointed out by the security view). There were also some minor
updates the digix website and to fix truffle-lightwallet-provider due to
external dependency changes (thanks to an updated
Spectrum: Towards an Open Source Release
updates to the contract APIs pending security review (including
guaranteed TBC changes to the way pagination will work), our frontend
development pipeline was freed up; so focus has shifted away from
developing specific dapplets and I have once again been working on
Spectrum’s core functionality (which has been a growing laundry list of
features as more ideas and technologies appear; such as ENS integration,
“time machine” mode, message signing, and some TBA bonus services for
parties have been interested in using Spectrum’s codebase for their own
Dapps, and the I have been spent time preparing Spectrum for it’s
imminent open source release. This week’s effort included a range of
bugfixes, refactoring, linting, optimizations and administration tasks,
including categorising the existing TODOs into issues, and creating
milestones for the next planned major releases. From now on I will be
using “github projects” to track progress.
goal is to have Spectrum open sourced by next Friday, when I will also
be announcing a program to encourage open source contributions.
Bitcoin be aware!! Lee Cham Sarm, the Korean developer, has push the HPC into the operation.
The Happycoin has collaborated with the Korean partner in order to develop the Happy Coin Entertainment which is the foundation of its business in term of entertainment and services in mobile payment under a brand Happy Coin Korea.
