    July 6th, 2018

    Welcome to the Halo Platform bi-weekly newsletter. In today’s newsletter, we will take a look back a June 30th’s AMA with Devin Seto and provide an update from the recent release of Featherlite, version 1.0.2. June 30th was the end of quarter and we held a live AMA (ask me anything) session with Devin Seto on our Youtube channel. See the link below for the AMA video and a special sneak peek at one of the new games Block and Chain is currently developing! https://youtu.be/kuhte0-L0_0 Our next AMA will be later this month. Stay tuned in our various social media networks and community channels for more information on date and time. Featherlite — v1.0.2 Release Notes Early last week we released an update to the Featherlite wallet. Please be sure to update to the latest version of Featherlite here. Summary of Key New Features: Loading masternodes is much faster now (10 seconds to 3 minutes depending on the speed of your connection and whether or not you are using Lite or Full node). Masternode dapp: On the top action bar, there is now a loading bar and progress indicator to show the % progress in synching to the masternode system. Masternode dapp: On the top action bar, we added a Withdraw All button to withdraw your masternode rewards with a single click. Masternode dapp: On the top action bar, we added a Toggle View button to switch your masternode view between the previous card format and a summary list format. Masternode Monitoring screen: Graphs which show the total amount of active masternodes within the network, the current minting pool and current service fee pool. Masternode Marketplace: Pending Orders have been re-enabled so you can buy and sell masternode shares once again. Known Issues and Workarounds: It may take 15–20 seconds before the masternode sync begins — sometimes 2–3 mins. But it is working. The indicator (moving bar) and text will disappear if there is an error. Withdraw All Button: Only withdraws rewards for masternodes attached to current Halo Prime. Individual master nodes rewards can still be withdrawn the traditional way if they are not attached to your current Halo Prime wallet. Detailed release notes can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IWVxdAwPxPLRLD_05acOT1_GKhARiEvv/view?usp=sharing The wallet and masternode dapps are undergoing constant improvement, with most new features driven by community feedback. Here is a sneak peek at some of the updates coming in the next release: Wallet dapp will let you rename your halo accounts from inside the wallet dapp and the name will persist through to Account Control as well 2. Masternode dapp will show the tier inside the pending orders section. This will allow users to see what tier of masternode they are buying shares into without using the block explorer. 3. Price per share will also be fixed on both the marketplace and the detail view for masternodes (Active sell orders). 4. Masternode dapp will now show alias in the list view on Monitoring Featherlite 2.0 The next version of Featherlite is well underway, with much of the application already converted to the new design. During this process we are cleaning up post-launch code to be more efficient and performant. Below is a sneak peek of 2 existing dapps inside the new interface. Masternode: Below is the existing Masternode dapp within the new Featherlite structure. Navigation controls have been moved into a floating drawer and account controls to the top right of the application. Wallet: Similar to the Masternode dapp, here is the Wallet dapp within the new Featherlite structure. Customize your view: Here an example of the new interface in action. Animations have been cleaned up and the new structure provides an open canvas for creating new functionality. Exchange Update HaloDEX has made great headway with our finalized UI mockups and the front end implementation well underway, whilst the smart contracts and exchange protocol are being worked with the assistance of another recent hire. HaloX also saw great headway this sprint with further hardening and testing of the back end and the front end trading dashboard. At this stage it’s tough to say whether an exchange listing or one of the above will come first, but it’s certainly an exciting time and we cannot wait to see where the road will lead in the short term. Block & Chain Games Update While the Block & Chain team has been working on several games, we revealed one of them in a sneak peak during the AMA this past weekend. Draggin’ Dragons will be more than just a racing game. With breeding, trading, training, and collecting, players can build up their “stable” of dragons and earn Halo whenever their Dragon wins a race! This is just the beginning of the Block & Chain games slate! User Information Masternode Instructions Setting up and using a masternode is simple with the Halo Platform.

    In today’s newsletter, we have some exciting details to cover on the launch of our decentralized exchange, HaloDex. HaloDex is nearly complete! With HaloDex, users will be able to trade HALO with other cryptocurrency pairs within the Featherlite wallet or dedicated web portal. There will be no need to download a 3rd party application, which is part of our vision of being the all-in-one crypto platform. Once HaloDex has launched, we will offer a project voting competition where the community can vote to have their favorite projects listed on the exchange. More details will be announced next week. Throughout next week, we will also provide regular updates to our community with information pertaining to the HaloDex launch. HaloDex — Features HaloDex will feature a brand new user interface that stands-out for its ease of use. The new UI will be fed by a fast back-end and powered by an elegant, intuitive user interface. Users will immediately experience an ultra-fast lazy loaded (loaded only when used) front-end. In addition, there will be no requirement to sign-up with an email in order to use the DEX. The only requirement will be a valid Halo address. Upon release, we will offer base trading with a handful of currencies and tokens, with new ones added regularly based on community selection. The main difference between HaloDex and most other Decentralized Exchanges is that they only allow trading of Ethereum and Ethereum ERC-20 Tokens. The HaloDex has the capacity to trade every coin, regardless of network or algorithm, USDT, DASH, EOS, XRP, XMR, with no limitations to our capacity for listing a coin. Also, running on the Halo Platform Network allows for a much greater execution speed and overall faster experience. Only pay gas or transaction fees on Deposit or Withdrawal, never on trades, which will reduce your overall cost per trade. Look for our more details on HaloDex next week. The satisfaction of most traders’ basic needs will be available, such as: buy and sell orders, price chart, price depth, transaction history, deposits/withdrawals, as well as volume data. We plan to submit community voting for other projects, so everyone can have the opportunity to weigh in on our next listed coins. Stay tuned for more information on community listing voting. Our HaloDex and HaloX logo competition is underway! Last week we had over 50 submissions enter the competition, which we have narrowed down for community selection. The winners of the HaloDex and HaloX logo competition will each receive 50 HALO. To cast your vote, add one reaction to your favorite logo in the #halodex-logo-contest channel in our Discord community. The selection ends quickly, so be sure to cast a vote for your favorite logo soon. Next week, we will also release our exchange whitepaper and HaloDex.io landing page to the community. The current trading page in HaloDex. HaloX Update Progress continues on the centralized exchange. This week the team focused on the API security implementation and we now have a very robust authentication procedure and policy in place. Focus right now is on the Peer-to-Peer margin implementation, after which we will be getting very close to feature completion and beginning work on hardening and testing. Look for the pre-registration site coming soon! Masternode System Earlier this week we released a patch for the Masternode DAPP. Please see below for a list of patch notes. To install the update, simply click the “Refresh” button while on the Masternode Monitoring page within Featherlite. Summary of Key New Features: All sorting and search text boxes should work (cannot currently sort by alias or pending sell orders) Watched masternodes (masternodes the halo prime account is not a joiner of) are now removable from card, list and detail view Added MN alias to monitoring list view Add sell orders table to monitoring list view Masternode detail view will disable all action buttons if account viewing is not a joiner/owner Monitoring card view shows number of sell orders Masternode Marketplace now has a loading bar to show sync progress Added MN tier to pending sell orders Price per share is corrected: total now correctly shows total price to two decimal places Fully Fund checkbox when joining a masternode now works correctly Masternode detail view Rewards Table now shows rewards/fees Block & Chain Games Update We are on track to release our first two games shortly after our exchange launches. While we are pending the formal announcement of these games and our team website, we are thrilled to share some teaser screenshots of our two launch titles: Draggin’ Dragons: Choose your track and race your dragon to victory!

    Welcome to the Halo Platform bi-weekly newsletter! Every two weeks, we provide the latest updates on our development in several departments. In this week’s newsletter, we want to focus your attention on the continued development of HaloDEX, Halo Platform’s decentralized exchange. HaloDEX Update We are pleased to announce that the public beta release of HaloDEX will begin on August 15. The first available trading pair will be HALO/ETH. After a few days of testing, BTC and other token pairs will be added and available for trade. Shortly after the launch of HaloDEX, we plan to start our Coin/Token Voting Competition. The competition will allow users to vote for their favorite projects to be listed on HaloDEX. Projects with the highest votes at the end of the competition will be reviewed and selected as the next coin/token added to HaloDEX. These votes will take place regularly, so vote early and often. If you want to see your project listed on the DEX, outside of the voting competition, you can inquire via email at listings@haloplatform.tech. The launch of HaloDEX is the next big step forward for Halo Platform. The Halo Platform team has poured everything they have into making HaloDEX a reality, and we are all very excited to see our vision unfold. But don’t think HaloDEX is all we have up our sleeves — we will have several more new cryptocurrency tools, products, and services to showcase. The Halo Platform team has been hard at work developing new platform features and blockchain-based services that will be ready for launch very soon — particularly from our Block & Chain Game Studio. Centralized Exchange (HaloX) Update The peer-to-peer margin funding system that matches trades, manages risk, and implements accounts has been completed and tested. Our team has hardened some of the matching engine core functions to improve scalability. Currently, we are focused on continuous deployment procedures that will allow modules of the exchange to be hot upgraded to minimize downtime. Masternode System The masternode system is still receiving regular updates to improve speed and usability. A big change is coming to the statistics view, which will show a user’s personal distribution of masternode ownership and how much Halo they have invested in masternodes. Masternode owners will also soon be able to request to have their masternode terminated directly from the dapp. Finally, our new API system will provide a long-term solution to performance issues caused by chain size. Look for the latest update very soon. Portfolio The Portfolio’s interface is still in the early stages of development, but we’ve finished the dashboard layout system and are now working on creating great looking charts to display multiple datasets from multiple exchanges. Pretty soon, we’re going to have many different chart types including (but not limited to) candlestick, OLHC and pie charts to show information like portfolio holdings, price history and other portfolio/exchange data. Block & Chain Games Update In the last newsletter, we teased Blockfight! — Block & Chain Game Studios’ exciting turn-based creature battle game. In this immersive dice rolling game, players battle hi-res 3D monsters for guts, glory, and valuable rewards. Beat them all and fill your trophy room! Blockfight will launch hot on the heels of HaloDEX, but to keep stoking the fire of excitement behind this and the other blockchain-enabled games under development at Block & Chain, we are pleased to share a gameplay clip from Blockfight. Stay tuned for more updates, as additional information on the game platform and our first titles will be shared in the coming days.

    August 17th, 2018

    Welcome to the Halo Platform Bi-Weekly newsletter! This is where we provide updates on recent developments and announcements for upcoming news, products, and events. HaloDEX was released on testnet on August 16th. If you would like to test our new decentralized exchange, download and install the latest version of Featherlite here. We have also provided an instruction manual to help users become more familiar with the decentralized exchange and understand how HaloDEX works. You can find the instructions here. For more information, check out our FAQ. Support will be readily accessible in the #dex-testing channel on Discord or by email support@haloplatform.tech. Accessing HaloDEX on TestNet Featherlite Updates: In addition, there have been many updates on Halo Platform’s wallet Featherlite. See below for the full list.: Wallet 1.0 changelog: Transaction hex are not longer truncated Users can now create feather accounts from wallet Fixed sending validation Fixed some rounding and balance display errors Added true transaction history Fixed send all to always send all (used to leave .000000001 halo) Masternode Dapp 2.2.0 changelog: Fixed bug that sometimes caused funding address to disappear from provision form. Fixed overfund error message. Added new feature to select sell orders and buy all selected sell orders. Fixed bug that caused only the first card in monitoring card view to update when withdrawing all rewards. Updated UI for monitoring statistics and added new account-based statistics. Added new feature to request termination of masternodes. Added new feature for joining private masternodes to masternodes. Added new feature, prompts user to unlock account if they attempt an action with a locked account. Refactored masternode manage/detail view sell orders to include all sell orders for the masternode. Featherlite 1.1.0: Updated PP and ToS Block users from going forward while data.json is loading Fixed a bug where users were not blocked from blacklist accounts sometimes Added batch transactions Refactor confirmation messages to distinguish between transactions and contract interactions Added HaloDEX on testnet Configurable menu depending on network id Fix confirmation rejection not being passed down to dapps Be sure to set your calendar for August 26th at 1PM EST for our next AMA with Michael Quale, Halo Platform’s Chief Technology Officer and 25-year software development veteran. Michael has experience in software design, modeling, integration, and migration to meet highly available, scalable, and secure cloud solutions. Michael will be able to answer questions regarding security, performance, and scalability on Halo Platform. If you have questions, submit them using this form or tweet it to us at @HaloPlatform. Please use hashtag #AMA with your question. Another big date coming up is Monday, August 20th at 7–7:30 AM EST/PST. Halo Platform will be featured on AMC Networks’ NewsWatch. We are very excited to be featured on national television and get exposure on a great program like NewsWatch. Other Exchange Updates: It’s been a long, busy few weeks for the HaloDEX team, and we’ve been committing our best and brightest to launching our decentralized exchange. The amazing features available on HaloDEX, will certainly be worth the wait. This system provides a persistent websocket connection to our DEX API. What that means is that since Halo Platform’s chain is so fast, orders execute in near real-time and updates and price action movements will be almost instantaneous. We are aiming to please even the most demanding traders, so we built HaloDEX with everything active crypto traders need. Work on our centralized exchange (HaloX) continues to move forward in parallel with the current focus on back end development. With the back end functionality is complete, the codebase has undergone a major refactor to create a library of well documented and reusable functions to allow us to scale up quickly in the future. The final piece of the puzzle on HaloX is the API to connect the front and back end pieces which will be quickly followed with Unit Testing, Simulation Testing and rigorous software and hardware optimizations. Block & Chain Games Update: This sprint, we are working on wrapping up Blockfight (which we introduced to you in the last newsletter). We are also integrating it into the platform. The API’s created for HaloDEX and Featherlite will work with the game to make gameplay and currency flows as seamless as possible. In addition to cryptocurrency, Blockfight will also have a traditional soft currency, which can be purchased with Fiat and cannot be cashed out of the game. This will ensure the game has a free-to-play element, as soft currency will be given as daily rewards to loyal players. We won’t restrict players to only buy cryptocurrency in order to play our games. Rather, we want to introduce them to the Halo Platform through a system that is familiar to them. Most traditional gamers will likely use soft currency in our games and graduate to cryptocurrency as they become more familiar with it. This is a fundamental element to our growth strategy for Block & Chain games and the platform as a whole. Next week, we are going to launch our new website. That will also kick off a campaign of social media updates, videos and newsletters, much like we’re doing with the Halo Platform. We are going to reach beyond the US and establish a social media presence in numerous countries where social and crypto games are growing in popularity. Here is a sneak peek of our new home page: Halo Platform Resources: Masternode Instructions Setting up and using a masternode is simple with the Halo Platform.

  6. The concept of decentralization is pivotal to the blockchain and cryptocurrencies that run on it. The notion itself is pretty basic — a decentralized system simply operates without centralized control. But when it comes to secure exchanges for trading altcoins, is the difference between centralization and decentralization meaningful? And if so, should you look for decentralized exchange sites when selecting your next best crypto exchange? Centralized vs. Decentralized Exchanges Blockchain and cryptocurrency technology were built on the premise that secure transactions can be achieved without the need for a central authority.Unlike traditional third-party payment processors like PayPal or Mastercard, cryptocurrencies can self-verify every transaction made by the people who use them. Whether they are using digital coins to make purchases, accepting crypto as payment for goods and services, or trading altcoins, every transaction performed using a decentralized blockchain currency is performed trustlessly and securely. This avoids the time and expense of verifying transactions manually, which has been the standard for online transactions up until now. When it comes to cryptocurrency exchange websites, however, centralization remains a core concept. Just like PayPal, centralized exchanges are run by companies that manage and earn revenue from transactions on the platform. Decentralized cryptocoin markets, on the other hand, run through ablockchain relying on a peer-to-peer protocol. So, trading altcoins is done through dozens or even hundreds of independent nodes and masternodes. Transactions occur only when the nodes come to a consensus based on the exchange’s verification rules. This process typically takes more time than the near-instant transactions digital coin traders see on popular centralized exchanges, but decentralization carries with it several key benefits. Benefits of Decentralization The main benefit of decentralization is the security associated with operating on a trustless system. Since 2011, there have been at least 56 known cyberattacks on centralized cryptocurrency exchanges. Hackers have made off with hundreds of millions of dollars worth of digital coins owned by individual investors but maintained in wallets at centralized exchanges. This is possible because digital coin traders access their cryptocurrencies held on public exchanges using public-key encryption. Public-key encryption is very secure and reliable, but there’s no telling whether the centralized exchange holding the associated private key is following all of the necessary security measures. And once cybercriminals have gotten into a centralized crypto exchange, there’s little that can be done to stop them from pillaging coin wallets until there’s nothing left. Decentralized exchange users keep the private keys to their digital coin wallets. So, rather than trusting the company running the cryptocurrency exchange of your choosing to keep your funds safe, you can ensure your digital coins are protected. By simply following all of the proper best practices for private key management, you can make sure your assets are safe while you’re busy trading altcoins. What Makes for the Best Crypto Exchange? Decentralization is the newest wave in cryptocoin markets. However, that’s not to say that they trump centralized exchanges hands-down. In fact, there are benefits associated with both centralized and decentralized exchange sites. Halo Platform offers a wide array of blockchain and cryptocurrency services, including both a centralized and a decentralized exchange, which are nearing completion. Our centralized exchange, HaloX, will be the best exchange for powerful analysis tools and easy transactions, while our decentralized exchange, HaloDEX, will operate trustlessly and without a central settlement party. Of course, both HaloX and HaloDEX will afford users full access to the cryptocoin market through a secure exchange. All in all, both HaloX and HaloDEX will offer unique benefits that any member of the cryptocurrency community can take advantage of.
