On Wednesday April 13th several directors met to share updates on current projects and discuss new initiatives. With fewer than five directors in attendance no votes were cast but the discussions were productive on a number of subjects.
DIP 3 (enhancement to the platform allowing conversion of divisible tokens to non-divisible) is in testing phase which is expected to run for about two more weeks. Following testing the update will be added to the protocol and the web wallet. It will require another month to update the desktop wallet with this feature.
The final payment has been sent to vinDAX and the contract has been signed to add XDP to the exchange. Instructions have been sent and integration has begun with error checking and testing in progress.
Public announcements have been made to kick off the 2022 Dogeparty Hackathon. The submission window will be extended into May to provide ample time for submissions.
The XDP buyback program has been moving forward steadily with the Foundation having now acquired around 25,000 XDP.
With all of the new community members arriving regularly, the Foundation agreed that a “Featured Community Members” page on Dogeparty.net was needed. This page will feature profiles of moderators on the Telegram rooms and other helpful individuals who community members can reach out to with questions.
The community raised a concern about the warning message that Windows users experience when installing the desktop wallet for the first time. The developers will investigate whether a certificate update is needed and will pursue acquiring and adding it to the software to help avoid this issue.
There is an update to the blockchain explorer being developed that will add a page listing all of the official projects and links to their websites. The intent is to allow users to easily see the current active projects associated with the platform from the explorer site directly which will also link to the assets associated with each project.
The foundation agreed that a dedicated community manager will be needed to engage with the broader crypto community through social media, publish a newsletter, and host developer meetings, among other efforts to build the existing community and attract new members. A work agreement will be developed to outline the requirements and further updates will be discussed at the next meeting.
