Roadmap for FTC.

    @tmetaphysical re : roadmap to associated developments.

    The FTC team has core responsibility to the blockchain. Staff have researched, encouraged, planned and assisted potential developers (of any FTC associated technology) . In the case of Android wallet, “we” / Admin / @Wellenreiter has taken over long term management of the wallet, from the developer, in our own time for free.

    With the current situation with coins and FTC market cap, there is certainly more of an incentive to get a ios, bread wallet out. We would certainly assist or answer what we can, start a chat group to pass info around. Use our facilities -the forum or slack can be used to document projects, you can request the wallet be under FTC change control and have it hosted at Github, even be a moderator for that projects.

    Sorry the answer to every questions is go ahead and do it.

    @tmetaphysical said in Roadmap for FTC.:

    @wellenreiter Do these two points need to be implemented before creating a ios wallet - fork of loaf wallet for example ?

    It is a problem to find an IOS developer. We also never had one in our team, therefore we don’t have an IOS wallet.

    If any existing IOS Wallet from another coin can be forked, this can be done at any time.
    The major task to accomplish is to get the FTC specific hashing algorithms implemented, including the block numbers to switch from one algo to another, and to implement the difficulty calculations also with the corresponding block numbers that apply the new parameter to this calculation.

    The rollout of 0.13.2 does not contain a hard fork, so out current production releases will continue to work and if an IOS Wallet is created now, it also will continue to work.

    @wellenreiter Is there a site where reputable iOS developers monitor for extra work?

    @Mr_Metaphysical

    I have successfully forked BreadWallet and implemented the necessary stuff to get us to the neoScrypt HardFork.

    I just don’t have the C knowledge necessary to carry on. The encryption algo stuff is complex for me.

    right now I have a version of BreadWallet that compiles and runs successfully, gets to the NeoScrypt hardfork block…and then restarts it’s sync.

    I’m trying to get devs I know to look into the reset of the implementation of it…it’s hard and considering the amount of of work, they want me to pay them…which i’m looking into if I can afford it.

    @acidd Is there a way that could be crowd-sourced, make so that people could set a percentage of their mining profits to go to the devs automatically?

    Is this essential for the next upgrade in FTC? How much are they asking for?

    I can only speak for myself.

    With that being said, I don’t need a roadmap for FTC. I have seen, and continue to see the value of FTC. To anyone who doesn’t, I would challenge you to spend a little time in these forums, and observe who puts their time into FTC.

    In my somewhat uneducated opinion, I see no benefit of BTC or LTC’s blockchain over FTC’s when it comes to “store of value”. I would actually be more inclined to lean toward FTC due to the decentralization of neoscrypt.

    The difficulty is political and trusting parties with funds. Laws around Blockchain have been undefined and threatened actions mean FTC needs to run as a DAO. Foundations or other development teams can arise as the worth or usage in the FTC blockchain increases and as non volunteer run organization can integrate with local business laws. For instance, Feathercoin could become part of another foundation, like Litecoin Foundation, such that 0.5 of a programmer there works on Feathercoin and they deal with wages bank accounts and paperwork etc …

    With smart contracts a number of suggestions have been made, is it worth diverting FTC when it looks like being a successful “currency” and altcoins are required to deal with scaling at least for a while. I think it needs a very solid and worked out proposal that is cognizant of Feathercoins position as a long term surviving community driven coin.

    @acidd cost ?

    is bread wallet the best option?
    i am not fully knowledgeable on this so please forgive me if this sound ignorant, would loaf wallet not be better given ftc is derived from ltc ?

    I’m trying to get the time to put a proposal together for the dev. I need to lay out all my findings and then he needs to get the time to look at at.

    At this point it doesnt matter what SPV fork you use. It’s just the neoscrypt implementation. That needs to be done.
