Syscoin and BCF News

Syscoin at Blocknorth’s ‘Block Party’ event

Syscoin had a virtual representation at educational partner Blocknorth’s recent Block Party event, in the form of an introductory video with voiceover explaining some of the key facts about Syscoin. Watch a video about the event here:

Amsterdam meetup

After meeting in a typical old Dutch bar, the community members, SCMT and Keyare went to a restaurant to chew the fat on past, present and future Syscoin. We want to thank everyone for joining and can’t wait for the next meetup! (maybe in summer?!)

Jag at Anarchapulco

Syscoin lead coder Jag Sidhu will be attending Anarchapulco in Acapulco, Mexico. Learn more about the event below and watch this space for updates from Jag!

Summary of the weekly AMA with Dan

Q: Do you still expect Q1 for TPS report?

A: Whiteblock has been working on it for a while. We just are trying to keep pumping the numbers up through iterative improvements as they identify bottlenecks, but I haven’t heard of new bottlenecks coming up in a week or so.

Q: Any ETA on the testnet? Would love to give it a try!

A: Working on getting testnet going soon, my goal was today, but perhaps early next week if not.

Q: So there’s a special “rule” that enables you to inflate any ERC 20 token as long as you follow certain steps? Do zdag assets have the same rule?

A: rules are part of the contract in the erc20. We have a special one we made that uses proofs from SYS to enable the inflating on the ERC20 side. It validates the proofs against another contract that ledgers the SYS block headers into the ETH chain more or less.
