What is in the works now and/or going to happen in near future?
(this is not even half or maybe even a quarter of what’s happening as I can’t keep up with everything!)
- Marketing team has started dicussions with more Chinese exchanges.
- Full language translation of pivx.org is in the works. (Chinese, Japanese, Korean etc)
- Japanese community building has started. Anyone who can assist or interested in this will be greatly appreciated!
- Chinese community is building up nicely. Nearly 1000 members in QQ and a hongico PIVX forum. http://www.hongico.com/forum.php?mod=forumdisplay&fid=56
- Increased adoption is also being worked on constantly. Debit Cards, Gift cards (e.g. bitcart.io), Payment processors, Bill Payments etc.
- Zerocoin implementation isn’t a quick 1 week job. But it is progressing and our devs are making sure we get it sooner than later.
