ParcelX & Metaverse Announce Strategic Partnership

c6xdSQ5 - ParcelX & Metaverse Announce Strategic PartnershipParcelX and Metaverse have agreed to officially move forward with a robust strategic partnership as of May 2, 2018. Under the terms of this partnership, both parties will work together closely to establish the world’s first global, cross-border parcel delivery network using blockchain technology.

ParcelX will onboard Metaverse as their first dAPP on the Global ParcelX Network, and will fully utilize Metaverse’s expertise in self-sovereign digital identity on the platform. At the same time, Metaverse will open its powerful platform to ParcelX in order to deeply customize and streamline its service offerings.

Metaverse founder Eric Gu will join ParcelX’s advisory team, lending his numerous years of leadership and expertise in the Chinese blockchain ecosystem to the project. Metaverse’s experience in deploying its unique “Avatar” digital identity, devotion to developing on-chain enterprises, as well as development of its “smart assets freeze & transfer” functionality will be a distinct advantage for the development of the ParcelX network.

Furthermore, Metaverse will leverage its institutional investor network to assist in ParcelX’s private sale. It will also support the GPX(https://explorer.mvs.org/#!/asset/PARCELX.GPX) token’s ICO process and promote it before, during, and after the listing process via its own platforms, well-known blockchain and crypto media channels, and industry events.

Metaverse LightWallet Android version is now live on the Google Play store!

HsVw9nO - Metaverse LightWallet Android version is now live on the Google Play store!

We’re glad to announce that the Metaverse lightwallet (version name: Gamma Ray) is now available on the Google Play store. After an extended testing phase on the testnet together with community volunteers, we completed two rounds of debugging and improvements and are now ready to officially launch the app.

MyETPWallet is a light wallet that provides users with a much simpler alternative to full-node desktop wallets. It does not require users to download the entire blockchain to send and receive assets, and user’s private keys are not stored within a centralized server.

The features of MyETPWallet (Android version) are:

• ETP and Metaverse-based token transactions. Added QR scan function for sending assets.

• Transaction history checking

• Asset creation

• ETP deposit function

• Multiple themes available

• Seven languages supported (English, Chinese, Korean, Russian, French, German, Thai)

Do note that you must create an account at https://www.myetpwallet.com/ or on the full-node wallet first to be able to use the light wallet mobile app, as you have to import an existing account into the app.

To try MyETPWallet, please download it via https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.myetpwallet.app

Or go to Google Play store and search “MyETPWallet”.

Enjoy it!

Progress Report – (13th Nov. 2017 – 24th Nov. 2017)

Introduction

Metaverse is a public blockchain project that aims to provide decentralized services based on digital assets, digital identity and value intermediaries in order to build an open ecosystem in which digital value can be freely circulated. Detailed information can be found in our white paper http://newmetaverse.org/white-paper/Metaverse-white-paper-v2.1-EN.pdf

Fortnight in Review

Development

  • Light Wallet Development Progress

Metaverse has officially released a light wallet beta at https://www.myetpwallet.com/. The wallet is an SPV client and is accessible through your browser. Unlike the full node wallet, the Light Wallet does not require users to sync the entire blocks and has a simple user interface that allows users to easily manage their digital assets while on-the-go.

  • Metaverse full-node wallet

Enhancement of MVSD, Metaverse’s full-node wallet, continues. The following changes have been developed:

  • Added an offline transaction signing function. This function is unavailable through the MVSD GUI; it is only available for createrawtx/signrawtx/decoderawtx/sendrawtx RPC calls.
  • Accounts are no longer created when users input incorrect mnemonic words
  • Fixed issues with deposit unfreezing estimate date.

  • Optimized performance of the getnewaddress RPC call. Irrelevant to the MVSD GUI.

  • Add locked_height_range fields during transaction output of RPC calls to recognize the stored transaction

  • Metaverse Official Website Redesign

Metaverse has redesigned its official website. Two pages have been added: Metaverse Foundation and Development Documents. Please visit the official website at: https://mvs.org;

Metaverse Foundation Bounty Program

yIT6NXn - Metaverse Foundation Bounty Program

In accordance with the mission of the Metaverse Foundation, a portion of the ETP held by the foundation will be used to incentivize developers and marketing personnel who contribute to the development of the Metaverse community. Based on Metaverse’s development needs, core members of the Metaverse Foundation have designed a bounty program for developers and community contributors.

Developer Bounty (long-term):

Submit an MIP and have it accepted. (For details about the submission process, please refer to relevant information on Github: https://github.com/mvs-org/mips)

Actively participate in discussions about existing MIPs proposed by Metaverse’s core developers and provide proof of concepts, specific implementation plans or code during the development process.

Find a bug as well as an effective solution. Guidelines are as follows:

A. Provide a clear description of the bug and its properties, including the type of bug and how to reproduce it.

B. Provide a complete set of steps to reproduce the bug, including test code and test description.

C. Provide high-quality fixes for the bug, including the code and a clear description of the method

Community Contributor Bounty (tentative):

  1. Contributors must have sufficient knowledge about the Metaverse project, be able to help manage Metaverse communities on various social platforms and answer questions asked by users in a timely and accurate manner.
  2. Help Metaverse expand communities in non-English speaking countries and actively participate in their management.
  3. Translate official information provided by Metaverse to less common languages and disseminate it to non-English native speakers/non-Chinese users to make it easier for them to use Metaverse’s products.
  4. Create high-quality content according to official information provided by Metaverse, including but not limited to videos and articles, and attract relatively large amounts of traffic.

For details about how to contribute content to Metaverse, please refer to: https://medium.com/@mvs_org/metaverse-community-soliciting-articles-257990c67583

Bounty sizes:

The Foundation rewards participants based on the priority of the need and an assessment of the quality of the work. 1 point currently corresponds to 1 USD (payable in ETP), and the ETP/USD exchange rate used will be the 5-day average rate on Coinmarketcap on the day the reward is given.

Level 1: Provide an idea that helps the project to an extent.

Reward 1-20 points

Level 2: Provide important opinions and plans regarding existing problems and make an attempt to implement a solution.

Reward 21-200 points

Level 3: Assist in the resolution of problems and do everything in one’s power to provide help and resources.

Reward 201-500 points

Level 4: Propose innovative ideas about plans or solutions to a problem that speed up its resolution, contributing to community development.

Reward 501-1000 points

Level 5: Play a leading role in the resolution of specific problems, maintaining the environment and smooth operation of the community.

Reward 1001-1500 points

Level 6: Make significant contributions to community development and play a decisive role in key issues.

Reward 1501-6000 points

Notes:

  1. The Foundation will not award contributors if the bug or operational issue is known to the Metaverse team and has been addressed.
  2. Users who submit problems without providing a concrete plan that can be implemented will not be rewarded.
  3. In principle, we only reward the first person to propose a particular development or community operations solution. However, we will also consider rewarding users who propose better solutions or supplement the earlier proposal.
  4. Bounties will be payable in ETP. The specific bounty amount will be decided according to Metaverse’s development and the price of ETP. The Foundation reserves the right to adjust the reward plan and bounty amount at any time.
  5. All relevant activities of users who apply for bounties are bound by the law (including but not limited to the laws of the host country and relevant international treaties) throughout the course of participation. The Metaverse Foundation is not responsible for all legal risks arising in the course of the activity. Bounties will be awarded at the sole discretion of the Metaverse Foundation.
  6. The Foundation reserves the right not to reward contributors with good intentions whose actions resulted in negative outcomes.

Bounty query:

The reason, quantity and address for reward will be disclosed on the Metaverse Foundation’s official website. Users can query these transactions through the block explorer.
