This post is to update our users on the progress of our technical development and on what we have been working recently. For the past several months our team has been developing Bytecoin Zero which was released for Beta testing last week.
The Bytecoin Team is proud to present Bytecoin Zero, a browser wallet for the Bytecoin platform. This software allows users to open their Bytecoin wallets and transfer BCNs straight in the browser without requiring desktop-class software. It is unique in that it bridges two technological aspects previously thought incompatible: the convenience of browser-side applications and the security of running a native desktop app. In this article we will look into why such technology is necessary, how it works and how users can benefit from it.
There are several convenient and easy ways to obtain BCN right now. As it is an important topic for our community, information regarding available exchanges will be presented in this article. These services allow you to buy and hold Bytecoin in your wallet or use it for trading.
This past week we have received an overwhelming amount of feedback on the Bytecoin Gateway, including a lot of interesting questions. For this week's article we have decided to answer the community’s top inquiries.
The Bytecoin Devs constantly monitor our software behavior and release fixes when necessary. Here is a list of fixes and optimisations in v3.5.1
Today marks an important day in the development of Bytecoin - we are releasing Bytecoin Gateway, a technical platform venturing Bytecoin into the Ethereum blockchain. We are enthusiastic about the project and hope you are as excited as we are.
Dear community, on this day seven years ago, July 4th 2012, the very first Bytecoin block was submitted to the blockchain. As the first cryptocurrency project based on CryptoNote technology, Bytecoin has travelled a long path, changed and become greater as a platform, and, along the way, gained the trust of the greatest and most talented community on the web.
On September 12th, 2019 the Copper v3.6.0 release is coming to Bytecoin. This release will bring an unconventional feature to the blockchain - messaging functionality. In this article we will describe the design of the system, the various aspects of it that make the technology secure, and share some insights into how the feature will look from a user’s perspective.
This release contains several convenient tweaks and optimizations:
The Bytecoin Team has been working on making hardware wallets a storage option for the Bytecoin community for quite some time. We admire the technology and would like to use this space to provide a preview of how Bytecoin can work with one of the most prevalent hardware wallets in the industry, the Ledger Nano S. First we will describe how Ledger devices manage keys, then how to install the Bytecoin app on a Ledger Nano S, and finally show how to use the device to send BCN.
