Project A progress

So our first project will be relatively small, at least in scope.

All graphics for it were done by ourselves, mostly by downloading free stuff from the Internet :)

We will use this project to test our back-end code, which will be shared with the Project B, the bigger one. In particular PHP secure WebSockets server, communication with JS and user management: registration, authentication, deposits, withdrawals, etc., as well as automatic dividend payouts to investors.

We are also working to make sure the game will be compatible with mobile browsers on phones and tablets.

Started a private BitBucket repository today for better collaboration.

Also we run into some bug in the WebSockets server, need to debug it...

Bug fixed, it was a bug from the original version, not mine. I even left a comment, questioning that particular line of code :)

Anyway, Titulaer will now continue developing his part and I am back to Simcoin...

Titulaer made nice login and registration popups and they work over WebSockets!



You, guys, better start buying shares ;)

Last week we were working mostly on solving the problem of slow tasks, like, for example, deposit address generation.

WebSockets server's main loop must not be stalled for too long, because the server needs to service requests from all users quickly.

Initially we planned to use PHP threads, but it proved to be too cumbersome to even add this feature to PHP :)

So instead there's now a special table 'tasks' in the database and a separate PHP process, which handles all the slow tasks. So the database serves as a bridge that allows the two processes to communicate.

This took a bit of work, but now we have a universal solution to this problem and the main server loop can work without interruptions.

I wonder if you have thought about the future best niche market for Simcoin, the niche that Simcoin can fit best. It is better to start somewhere specifically and grow bigger. It seems that the macro-payment market is a good entry opportunity for cryptos and Neucoin is targeting it. That makes me wonder where Simcoin should be aiming.

Despite being quiet, we're still working on this behind the scenes :)

There are no new pics because most of the graphics for this project is done and now only the coding remains.

Titulaer has a full-time job and I am focused on Simcoin, so things are moving a bit slow, but they are moving.

I've created a private board for CryptoPlay investors, the beta-version will be announced there.

If I missed assigning you to the group, let me know.

Are you interested in C-f-B's Jinn tech - https://nxtforum.org/news-and-announcements/(ann)-jinn/msg169581/#msg169581

Jinn-powered Internet-of-Everything devices will be shipped with tech implementing another type of decentralized ledgers. The details are classified because this tech doesn't have such disadvantages of blockchain tech as necessity to store state transitions and to transmit big volumes of data.

You meant to say, "are you interested in CfB claims?" :D

Not particularly, no. If he finally realized that blockchain is not needed too - good for him.

Any news about Project A? When can we test it?
