Topping the charts

This week (really, the past 30 days) has undoubtedly been a whirlwind as Divi made multiple industry hotlists.

On Tuesday, Divi appeared on Bitrue's Top Gainers list as numero uno.

Growing and #BUIDLing

The Divi team is now building on four continents, in six countries, and continues to grow!

The Divi Crew has also expanded its reach into Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North, Central, and South America.

Essentially, the only place Divi is everywhere but Antarctica! 😅

MOCCI Updates

MOCCI underwent a massive update over the past week as we continue to optimize the efficiency of the software. More than a dozen changes to the MOCCI backend ensure that users continue to have a smooth experience when deploying masternodes with Divi Desktop. While most of these updates are not necessarily noticeable to users, the optimizations are critical when it comes to scaling MOCCI.

As the blockchain becomes larger and holds more transactions, the increased system requirements can cause masternodes to overload their servers. This overload results in the server stopping the divid process to preserve its memory.

While the scaling issues are no longer a concern for MOCCI users, those with manual masternode deployments may need to find a solution if they experience the same problems.

Trezor/Trust integration

After a month of discussion with the fantastic team at Trezor, our developer James Scaur has made the final pull request that will add Divi to Trezor's Blockbook. A necessary step toward adding Divi to both the Trezor hardware wallet as well as the Trust wallet.
