Luxcore November Development Update

Important Announcement! Cryptocurrency exchange CryptoBridge recently announced the delisting of 150 cryptocurrencies, Luxcore included. Make sure to withdraw your LUX before November 25th, 2019 or you’ll no longer have access to your tokens.

Coming hot off the heels of a giant September and October, the Luxcore team has been in a state of refining our recently implemented (and soon to be released) products and code. Our goal is to create a sustainable platform to act as a formidable bridge between the centralized and decentralized world. With several new listings to our upcoming decentralized exchange ‘Luxgate’, increased buzz on social media, and changes to our one-of-a-kind PoS web wallet, we’re firing on all cylinders and one step closer towards making the decentralized world accessible to all.

As Luxgate’s MVP approaches (after Beta testing is satisfied), make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, Discord to stay in the loop with announcements, release dates and other important Luxcore updates. Also, make sure to check out the Luxcore blog for educational articles and announcements!

Now, let’s take a look at what we’ve tackled and worked on this October and November.

Luxcore Network

Solidifying network security and efficacy, Luxcore developer ‘Giaki’ has:

  • Created a submodule based off the current RX2 parameters
  • Moved to a submodule-based configuration
  • Fixed most linking issues on Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX) platforms
  • Implemented a new flag detection function
  • Added warnings for users based off which flags they are running
  • Tested several forking scenarios
  • Threaded seed selection so the VM creation time isn’t wasted
  • Started working on a “larger stratum” to accomodate for the seed hash.

If you’re curious to learn more about smart contract scaling, Schnorr signatures, and decentralized storage (DFS), we recommend checking out an October podcast where Giaki sat down with YouTube channel Smart Reach.

Luxgate & Web Wallet

On the Luxgate end of things, Luxcore’s upcoming decentralized exchange, developer ‘Sebi’ has:

  • Created the Luxgate website which tracks each project’s LUX holdings, and
  • Shows their total earnings from staking or masternode rewards.

And, for users frustrated with occasional blank pages appearing on the Luxcore PoS web wallet, Sebi added loading indicators (a small spinner) to spin until a user’s LUX balance is loaded.

If you’re currently using our PoS web wallet (or considering it), we recommend checking out our latest announcement on its transition to a paid service (USD $1.50 per month paid in LUX) beginning December 7th, 2019. Do note that you don’t need to do anything to pay this new fee, as it will automatically be deducted from your balance.

Finally, have any blockchain projects in mind that you’d like to see listed on Luxgate? Let us know by shooting us a message on Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, or Discord.

Marketing

Since Jorik’s inauguration as head of PR for Luxcore, marketing efforts have been in full swing. Most notably, such efforts have yielded the attention and Luxgate listings of several promising blockchain projects, including:

We are also proud to announce that we have secured a Discord vanity URL to further branding initiatives and community accessibility. We’d especially like to thank the Luxcore community for all the boosts and make sure to spread the news on your respective social media accounts!
