An eventful week at Nav Coin HQ. Let’s get you up to speed.
We have been making good progress on the 4.0.0 wallet. You can track our progress on the github repository if you’re interested in which particular issues have been resolved.
We have come to the hard decision to not renew Petros employment contract moving forward. He has been very helpful to Nav Coin and has got our coin added to many new exchanges and services. We are very grateful to him for his service to date and we part ways on good terms. The team feels we really need someone with a stronger digital strategy or marketing background to take the reigns to bring some ambitious marketing campaigns to life for us.
I have been reaching out some start up groups here in New Zealand this week and come up with 3 potential candidates to fill the role so far. These people either have previous experience on the marketing team of a blockchain business or work in advertising / marketing as digital strategists. I am interviewing them over the next few days and am hoping to have one of them on board by next week sometime.
I am personally really excited at what a strong marketing presence could do for Nav Coin and it is all happening at a really opportune time. March is shaping up to be a big month for Nav Coin and a good digital strategy will complement our development efforts perfectly.
In March we are hoping to combine and release the following:
- Nav Coin Core 4.0.0 wallet for Linux, OSX and Windows.
- NavTech 1.1 release with full unit test coverage and bug fixes.
- Nav Coin Website design update.
- Nav Coin Raspberry Pi Stake Box image (with 4.0.0 core).
At this point it is looking like the 3rd or 4th week of march for this release as we also want some time to plan our marketing campaign around the release of this new software suite.
These releases will put us in a great position to continue with the rest of the projects on our timeline.
We will keep you informed if we need to move these dates forward or backwards for whatever reason, even we can not predict the future. But I wanted to put this out there as our goal for the month so everyone is aware of what we are achieving.
We have also been thinking about how to fund Nav Coins future developments. We are having some interesting discussions around potentially altering the staking method in the new core to account for a small donation to a development fund. We haven’t figured out what it would look like yet, but I can assure you it would be nothing crazy like Z-Cash’s 10% founders reward. If you’re interested in having your say, join us on slack or telegram to discuss this further and let us know your ideas.
