2019 is ended, and it is an appropriate moment to reveal all the achievements of the FCE Blockchain team over the past year.
Happy New Year wishes to our fellow community! May the coming year bring you a lot of achievement and success. We are happy to have such a loyal and supporting community.
During this period, the company's product development has advanced far ahead. Back in April 2019, all the main components of the system were developed, and the team began testing and improving them.
At the moment, beta testing is being completed and the production version of the ecosystem is being prepared for release.
WALLOK is now available in the mobile versions for Android and IOS, as well as in the desktop version for Windows and MacOS, and now it is even more convenient to use after the redesign and improved usability. The tool was integrated with the DOCFLOC
e-signing system, and a billing system; the ability to leave feedback has been also added.
Wallet security and the ability to unlock via TaceID, TouchID, and password were also developed completely, and now WALLOK
can be used as an authorization tool in third-party applications and websites.
The system for working with users' personal data and verification via the DIGID
e-passport was also improved, and the ability to manage private data was added. Account in WALLOK can now be divided into business and private.
smart contract library has been implemented, and now it can be used through the WALLOK interface.
Payments in WALLOK can now go through the integrated DIPAY
system, which allows transactions in FOOD, Bitcoin, Ethereum, ERC20 Ethereum tokens. FOOD ERC20 tokens are prepared for transfer to coins of our own FOOD blockchain. The translation system is completed and is being tested.
The mining system has changed from a PoW concept to a licensed mining concept. All network participants, including Miners, must be known and verified. This concept does not need to constantly increase the volume of transactions and allows the network to work quickly and stably even with a small number of miners. In addition, a verification system is necessary for legal transactions and transactions, as well as for using the system as an electronic passport.
A working prototype of the BISTRA
system has been developed, which allows users to track the work of the company, identify hitches and get rid of them. BISTRA can be integrated through the API to work through the provider.
Integration with the Internet service 1000ecofarms has been made, and users can now try out the tools, making real purchases.
In addition, we have updated the website and made a rebranding. As the work progressed, it became clear that the project’ name should be broader in scope: the developed tools are useful not only within the food industry. FOODCOIN ECOSYSTEM now has a brief name FCE Blockchain, and a new neat logo.
