Halo Platform Weekly Newsletter

Week of: Dec. 16 – Dec 22, 2018




Happy holidays from the Halo Platform team! 2018 has been a very active and exciting year for us and 2019 is shaping up to be even more eventful. We’re excited to show you what’s in store for the platform next year.

Here’s what we’ve got going on as the New Year approaches:

Halo Currency & Exchange

Just as planned, the currency split occurred successfully last Tuesday evening. All Halo balances now reflect the 800:1 split ratio. Featherlite wallets and the HaloDEX were brought back online immediately after the split, with the Masternode system turned back on Thursday. We were excited to bring a handful of new features to each of these systems as they were brought back online. The coin split went smoothly and we’re very proud of our team for making it happen!

A reminder, masternode rewards will begin again next week.

New Releases

It’s been a busy week and we’ve been fixing issues as fast as our community has been finding them. Last weekend, we addressed some issues causing connectivity problems on the chain. Users should find that our DAPPs now run a little faster.

Summary of release content:

Chrome Extension v1.2.3

  • Fixed account import error when importing from private key/phrase

  • Fixed bug that sometimes allowed users to view recovery phrase without verifying it first and user would be unable to verify phrase

  • Fixed UI issue where user appeared logged out after logging in when RPC requests fail

  • Improves UX of dialog popups throughout extension to be more visually consistent

Chrome Extension v1.2.4

  • Fixes issue causing errors with private key/seed phrase import

Chrome Extension v1.2.5

  • UI Issue causing whitelist permissions to not show up in the UI of feather settings.

Masternode DAPP v2.6.0

  • Remove locking accounts

  • Fixed Monitoring view loading

  • Fixed a bug when buying shares

  • Added new Address Book view/feature

  • Removed loading bar on Marketplace view

  • Updated to match new v1.1 masternode smart contracts


Wallet DAPP v1.2.0

  • UI updates to better match newer Halo DAPPs

  • Removed account locking/unlocking abilities

  • Auto add supported wrapper tokens

  • Fixed a bug when attempting to show all the supported wrapper tokens in token select drop down

  • Fixed a bug when renaming accounts from wallet


We also released version 2.2.0 of Glo to support the coin split and brought the Featherlite Client up to parity with the extension. While we encourage everyone to use the extension, we will continue to maintain the client software for the time being.

We’re continuing to focus on fixing HaloDEX bugs, rolling out the new version of the Halo Masternode system – which was released yesterday – and finishing the BTC wrapper for HaloDEX. We’re also working on a revamped version of the block explorer, which will be more informative and user friendly. Specific features will be announced as we get closer to release.

There is a new tutorial video available on our YouTube page detailing how to install and setup the Chrome Browser Extension: https://youtu.be/RgEIOwqelAE

Clearly, we’ve got a lot going. To see what the Halo Platform Team is working on at any given time, take a look at our Status Board.
