Development Update May 2018
In the Development Update April 2018 we look at vPax development coming to a close and the new site design.
vPax Game Code
The game is now undergoing security testing. Once complete it will be pushed live, to the Ethereum main-net, ready for players. This will be in June/July. Exact timing depends on the outcome of code security testing.
The architecture for this game represents a slight variation and experimentation aimed at improving bet processing times and efficiency. A schematic and visualization of the game architecture as below.
New Site Design
A new design is nearing completion for the vDice domain itself. Below is a sneak preview of the new site design.
Social Media and Chat
Please keep an eye out of all updates, including vPax release date, on official social media channels only. We have seen an increase in the number of fake channels, fake accounts and fake news related to the the project.
Also, we are not doing in any giveaways. So do not fall for these common fake giveaways from fake social media accounts. They are a plague on all ETH and crypto projects. Watch out for them. If you need to check if something is real, ask in our official Gitter channel.
Further, since the recent #boycottfacebook movement on social media, we have received a lot of requests to stop using Facebook as a social media channels.
The principles that underpin the move to boycott Facebook are good. They are in line with the ethos of privacy and open-source, that underpin the crypto community. So we are seriously considering these multiple requests to boycott Facebook, properly.
Also, please note that all chat is being migrated to Gitter, going forward. This is the channel you want to use for all discussions.
