Halo Platform Weekly Newsletter
Week of: Nov. 25 – Dec. 1, 2018
Hello Halo Platform community. Thanks as always for following us on our journey through the cryptospace. Here are some of the happenings at Halo Platform this week:
Halo Platform & Exchange
The cryptocurrency markets have taken a wild ride over the past couple of weeks, but Halo is still going strong. Our team is working hard to add Horizon State (HST) and Bitcoin (BTC) wrappers to HaloDEX as we continue to grow our coin support. Otherwise, our main priorities are the coin split and v1.1 of the master node system, which is required to support the split and changes our minting rates. Essentially, the split is a hard fork and we need to make sure all of our current systems support the change. Extensive testing is providing assurance that our system is ironclad and airtight.
Thanks for supporting us as we build a bigger, better cryptocurrency platform.
As always, we’re working to improve the Halo Platform user experience. Over the past 2 weeks, we delivered the following new releases:
Chrome Extension Release v1.1.1:
Phrase verification words are now sorted
Main net RPC url has been changed to https://mainnet.haloplatform.tech
DEX Version 3.1.0:
Added new ticker component
Improved long text display in the total field with detailed information about the currently selected base/token
Fixed UI for multiple screen sizes down to iPhone5
Fixed a bug that caused the max value used when clicking the max button in an order
The Landing page will now properly show a progress loader in dark mode
During Thanksgiving week, we also released DEX versions 3.0.2 and 3.0.3, which:
Fixed display bug for prices on trade history
Fixed a bug that would cause balances to not update in real time
Fixed a bug that would cause order books to not update upon changing markets
Added VTHO coin support

The Halo Platform and Block and Chain Game Studios website developers are working hard to create new website content. This includes ongoing development of the Player Central platform for Block and Chain Games, which will serve as the primary user interface for the entire gaming platform. Player Central will be ready for testing shortly, so stay tuned for a testnet release. A Halo Platform website revamp is also in the works. Look for a detailed announcement regarding the new changes in December.
In our efforts to spread the word about all of the great things Halo Platform has to offer, Business Development Manager Matthew Dowd and Halo Platform VP of Operations Devin Seto attended the Blockchain Expo-North America, in California’s Silicon Valley. The event, which ran from the 28th through the 30th of November, focused on content from leading brands embracing and developing cutting edge blockchain technologies. This is exciting for both Halo Platform and Block and Chain Game Studios as the team met to evangelize the strengths and benefits of our superfast and low-cost platform. We have several follow up meetings with potential partners coming next week and Matt will be meeting in person with a number of companies based in New York.

Horizon State just celebrated another great milestone. The Opportunities Party (New Zealand) vote commenced this morning, enabling over 4000 members to vote for their next leader and board representative. The vote will run until 12:00 noon on the 8th of December, and is using the Halo Blockchain to manage the election.
