Updates & Infrastructure

an update on our progress


As Blockstrap begins it’s full open beta release, we thought it was about time to let you know our progress over the last few weeks, and encourage you to have a look around and kick the tires a bit.

After our soft launch at TechCrunch Disrupt in London last month, we’ve been busy working on the infrastructure around Blockstrap to get it ready for a more widespread public beta. While most of the work has centered around improving our server architecture and back-end operations, we have also made a number of tweaks and updates to our HTML5 framework, as well as polishing our API calls to meet the standard we have set for ourselves.

Other improvements include the ability to run the Blockstrap HTML5 framework without needing a local httpd server, a plugin that shows current market conditions in our wallet framework, and corresponding documentation for every function available.

Now complete, the majority of our future efforts this coming month will be spent spreading the word about Blockstrap whilst continuing development on the framwework and additional API functionality.

In the meantime there will be a number of announcements from us with regards to new features, updates, and releases. To be kept up to date of these we recommend subscribing to our developer mailing list or alternatively following us on Twitter via @blockstrap.

As excited as we are to reach this milestone, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you that Blockstrap is still only V0.4 (the level we thought suitable for showing other people) and these are still early days. We have yet to start the more interesting and exciting tasks in our pipeline that we know our stack is capable of, and will be working on these ideas over the coming months.

We would also like to remind you that if you encounter any bugs, glitches, lack of functionality or any other problems using Blockstrap, please let us know immediately by raising an issue on GitHub so we can rectify these accordingly.

As a small team, your feedback in improving Blockstrap is massively appreciated and will help us shape future releases.

Thank you for being here, and happy coding!
