NEW BLOCK EXPLORER
We are creating a new open source block explorer for Bulwark and will be releasing it on GitHub.
Tasks Assigned 2 of 2
BULWARK SECURE HOME NODE
Local Hosting and Home Security
We will be working with CAD specialists to design a small, self-contained, home Bulwark node. This node will allow users to host a turn-key onionized masternode out of their home. Users will be able to connect this to their home network.
Anonymous Transactions with BWKz
The Zerocoin protocol allows for users to mint BWKz in exchange for BWK and to transact that BWKz anonymously. Upon receipt of BWKz the receiver can convert it back into BWK. This allows for completely anonymous transactions.
The Bulwark Codebase is based on prior versions of the Bitcoin Core. We are working hard to bring our Codebase up to Bitcoin Core versions .14/.15 as part of our standardization initiatives.
THE BULWARK TOOL CHEST
Open Source and Accessibility
The Bulwark Team is working to deliver a collection of code snippets, APIs, libraries, scripts, and knowledge that will serve to encourage a bazaar-like environment where developers who may be seeking the addition of cryptocurrency support in their projects are free to exchange knowledge, information, and code. We believe that providing developers with these tools parallels providing a carpenter the tools they need to create exciting and masterful projects.
Let Masternodes Speak
Integrating LibTox into the Bulwark Platform will allow private, secure, communications between Masternode operators. Ultimately, this should help encourage participation in the Superblock proposal review and voting system that arrives at the end of the Proof of Work period.
Allowing users to move and control their Bulwark from a mobile platform will serve our long-term goals of having Bulwark serve as a store of value and means of transaction.
EXTENSION OF BRANDING
A Known Entity
We will continue to extend our brand and intend to work with hardware vendors and system integrators which share the same passion and ideals that we do. In five years we want the name ‘Bulwark’ to be synonymous with not just cryptocurrency but privacy, security, and the respect for a user’s freedom. Bulwark’s main purpose is to provide freedom of choice through privacy.
DESIGN & VISUAL
User Experience and the Arts
Through Research and Development, we aim to create a visual design language for Bulwark that sets it apart from its competition in the crypto market. Our design team plans to innovate and experiment with the current UI/UX/Branding to ultimately achieve design excellence by searching for a medium that allows the best user experience, and aesthetics that are innovative and beautiful. This will be done by researching our competitors, keeping on top of current technological trends & standards and continuously striving to bring new and exciting visuals to the end-users.
We will be developing a web based wallet for a more user friendly experience for web based users who do not feel like running a full desktop application off their home computers or phones. We are currently looking into how to implement this seamlessly and securely.
Masternodes are, essentially, a decentralized web of computers that serve the Bulwark network. Masternodes perform important network functions and receive part of the block rewards. They serve the Bulwark ecosystem by stabilizing coin supply, processing transactions, and securing the network. Masternodes require 5000 BWK and modest technical knowledge to operate. Any wallet controlling 5000 BWK can set up a masternode.
Masternodes were launched in conjunction with the launch of Bulwark on December 1st 2017.
