Summary of the weekly AMA with Dan
Q: Hi Dan, how confident are you for a Q2 release? Are there still some unknown factors?
A: Very confident.
Q: May I ask if you have had the opportunity to recieve feedback from the AiBB and The Lode folks-those seem to be very developed apps.
A: Lode lots of feedback yes. Aibb we aren’t as close w as they aren’t clients but we assume they are checking our testnet and will let us know if there is anything they are worried about there.
Q: Will the Archos wallet be ready for Sys4 as well and when how/when can they be ordered?
A: We are targeting it being ready, electrum will be and we will also be prepping a desktop wallet of some fashion (not sure if iit will be Fusion or BMD at this point, but one of the two) and archos will be very near to the release if not ready by release. it might be like a week after or something, we are working on electrum 4 right now and based on how complex adding the sys asset support is will be what drives the delivery date, we are shooting for everything by early June.
Q: How will we order the Archos wallet? Who will distribute it actually?
A: You will be able to order it thru BCF links, which we’d prefer if you’re in North America. We will get some kinda affiliate link going for non-NA customers, we’re trying to work the details out w Archos.
Q: Are there any plans to focus some marketing resources in Asia ? There seems to be a ton of great energy in SEAsia and it looks like a great environment to unleash this beast.
A: We have been talking to foundation about how to enable a solid marketing budget, so that is something we are going to try to make sure we have covered
Q: does sys4 june4 mean move cps out of alias also danosphere
A: It should be safe, it will just be assigned to the address backing your alias IF that asset is migrated. They are between sys3 and their own chain so we’ll coordinate with them to ensure if they plan on staying w sys, their asset is migrated. Lode and AIBB will be migrated of course.
