STRAKS 7 for 7: Edition 2

Welcome to the second edition of the STRAKS 7 for 7.

For those new to the STRAKS 7 for 7 we are using this update as a platform for keeping relevant topics easily accessible that will serve to brief new community members of key STRAKS information instantly and to inform and maintain dialogue with our dedicated and passionate existing follower base.

Note that key announcements in relation to the project will continue be made ad-hoc and via relevant media channels, and the team’s main point of contact, Discord.

The STRAKS Development team has migrated to GITLAB!

GitLab is the first single application for all stages of the DevOps lifecycle. Only GitLab enables Concurrent DevOps, unlocking organizations from the constraints of the toolchain. GitLab provides unmatched visibility, higher levels of efficiency, and comprehensive governance. This makes the software lifecycle 3 times faster, radically improving the speed of business.

Our International Team of Developers will take advantage of the key features that GitLab is designed to facilitate. Allowing the team to collaborate more effectively despite the different parts of the world we reside in.

Current Roadmap Updates:

STRAKS Vote Has Entered Internal Testing!

STRAKS Vote has being tested by the STRAKS Team, and we will be asking community members to take it for a test run soon, and provide feedback. We have identified some opportunities to improve the experience prior to release. We will keep you updated as we get closer to an official release date!

Upcoming software updates
Electrum-Wallet 3.1.3 is entering internal testing
The upcoming update to the Electrum-Wallet is currently being tested. Since this update also requires changes to the Electrum Server software the testing period may last a week or longer in order to ensure that all functionality continues to work as expected.

Coming Soon
We are working on formalizing the STRAKS Market and PayStak Project Documentation to share with the community our vision of how these products will deliver value to the cryptocurrency marketplace.

STRAKS Translation Platform
Our web developers are hard at work on finalizing the translation platform! The custom translation platform will allow community members to contribute to our ongoing efforts to localize the STRAKS Project while simplifying the bounty rewards associated with the translations. All the features have been completed, and the platform is going through the first round of functionality testing. The Bounty Rewards for ongoing translations are being finalized and will be announced when the platform is release.
