Progress is looking spectacular this month as we continue to close issues and move toward the launch of Divi 2.0. Let's take a look at what tasks have been closed!
✅ Backward compatibility
Our users must experience a seamless transition from the current framework to the 2.0 application suite. This week, the implementation of full backward compatibility between wallets is complete. Users will have a frictionless path to recovering all of their funds, addresses, and even masternodes when moving from old to new.
✅ QR Code recovery
The best part about backward compatibility? All it takes is a quick scan of a QR code to recover. The QR code will be present in an upcoming update to the current Desktop Wallet. No hassle, just crypto made easy.
✅ Identity management
Creating and associating your identity in a way that is both considerate of user privacy and secured by the blockchain is a critical feature for the Divi 2.0 wallet. Now, that feature is ready for use.
🚀 Let the Beta Bashing commence
Our team of volunteer testers, called the Beta Bashers, have been anxiously anticipating the moment when they can get their hands on the app. That moment is finally here. Starting on April 29, 2020, the first beta tests will kick off in a move that brings us closer than ever to the launch of Divi 2.0.
🧹 More core cleanup
The mass cleanup of the Divi core continues this week with another merged pull request that includes 43 commits. This update removes Zerocoin from the codebase entirely. While Zerocoin has never technically been in use on the Divi blockchain, there were still dozens of unnecessary references to the library.
Divi added to Midas Investments Index Packages
DIVI is one of only four masternode coins included in the new Masternode Index launched by Midas.
The launch of the Midas Masternode Index signals a change in how investors can invest in masternodes. Gone are the days of market instability and price volatility. The masternode index exists to provide overall asset stability and peace of mind. Best of all, payouts are made directly in BTC!
The Masternode Index is excellent news for DIVI too...
◾️ New investors: Inclusion of DIVI to the Midas Masternode Index brings significant opportunity to bring new investments to DIVI. New investments = growth.
◾️ Project interest: The Midas Masternode Index creates awareness of Divi project from new audiences allowing us to increase our reach.
◾️ Coin stability: Through the portfolio rebalancing feature, the index opens cross-market stability opportunities to provide DIVI and the other coins included in the index with a stable platform for reduced volatility and sustainable growth.
Head over to Midas for more information and to invest in the Midas Masternode Index directly from the Midas platform.
The DRGN developers are now working with Divi's testnet to test the integration and prepare for the live interchain connection. This interoperability solution will enable smart contracts on the Divi blockchain. We can't wait to see what possibilities lie in wait with this collaboration. Stay tuned for more updates over the coming weeks.
