The end of the year may be near but, for many projects across the Stratis blockchain, the action is only just beginning.
Read on for a summary of what Team Stratis has been working on this month, including an exciting new SDA adoption alert, the launch of the Stratisphere Wallet on iOS and Android, and all the latest information on Stratis’ in-person meetups in 2023.
The Stratisphere Wallet is now available on iOS and Android
The Stratisphere Wallet has landed for iOS and Android devices! This non-custodial wallet can interact with dApps on the Stratis Platform and is now available via the App Store and Google Play.
Team Stratis has been hard at work to bring the community a sustainable and accessible wallet through which users can store, buy, and send NFTs, and the launch of the Stratisphere Wallet App marks the culmination of these efforts.
SDA Adoption Alert: DevEX
Stratis is always looking out for ways to hone and streamline our tools to create the optimal user experience. The latest proposal to pass the SDA vote, DevEX, aims to do just that for smart contracts by creating a frictionless integrated interface for developing secure smart contracts using Visual Studio. Visual Studio is accessible and frequently used by enterprise developers, making it ideal for streamlining the development of smart contracts.
Security is crucial to the future of blockchain, which is why ensuring that smart contracts remain as protected against vulnerabilities as possible is so important. The voters were clearly in agreement, with the proposal receiving 125 ‘yes’ votes with 116 required.
Congratulations to Allister Beharry (@allisterbeharry) and DevEX on the successful proposal!
Stratis Meetups: Book now for January!
A highlight of 2022 has been bringing the Stratis community together in London for a series of dynamic and insightful meetups. From learning more about projects developed on the Stratis blockchain to meeting fellow blockchain creators and enthusiasts, it has been a pleasure to watch the community come together.
The popularity of the meetups continues, with the next event on 16th December already sold out. However, tickets for the first meetup of 2023 on 20th January are available on Eventbrite, along with four other dates for H1 of 2023.
You can sign up for your chosen meetup here — we look forward to seeing you at Tower Suites in the New Year!
Stratisphere Wallet Releases
The team at Stratis continue to further develop and integrate new features for their NFT Marketplace. Recent developments have seen full IPFS support, with IPFS now the default storage location for minted NFTs. For those unfamiliar with IPFS, it stands for InterPlantary File System and is a form of distributed storage. It enables files to be replicated worldwide and removes control from the creator. This enables NFTs to be stored indefinitely and not at risk of a storage owner deleting or changing the file.
It doesn’t stop at IPFS; there have been lots of new features added with the latest release with some of the highlights below:
- Like your favourite NFTs
- Email Notifications
- Enhanced Profile Descriptions
In addition to the IPFS support being introduced within the existing desktop wallets, support has also been added to the new Stratipshere Mobile Wallet offerings, now available on the respective App Stores. Just search for Stratisphere Wallet!
Corgi Dash launches timeline and website
Another SDA alum, Corgi Dash, continues to make strides with the launch of its website and the reveal of a Stratis blockchain integration timeline.
The timeline suggests that Corgi Dash, a P2E game that sees players dash and dodge their way through six levels of obstacle-filled routes, will submit contracts to the Cirrus Mainnet, deploy the server, and ready the game for launch in January 2023.
You can find the newly launched Corgi Dash website here for a glimpse into the upcoming game. Get ready to earn coins and beat all six levels when the game drops in the new year.
