We’re almost in June! Can you believe it? Time has been flying extremely fast, there is still lots to be done.
About Us Page
CoinMath (formerly known as Mathy) has submitted his biography so he can be recognised as part of the team. If you do not already know he is our French Representative and is doing a ‘superb’ job so far. In the last few weeks Krizal was added to the About Us page but has since been in-active. If nothing happens soon we will look for another German Representative up to the task.
As of 2 weeks ago, www.worldcoinexplorer.com disappeared without warning, the owner nowhere to be seen. We are putting in place a plan of what to do, we have decided to build our own explorer. We are still negotiating with our assigned developer. The fundamentals will be put in place so that the crowdfund becomes functional and we will continue to raise money for the explorer completion. Of course the plan is not final, the decision may change because a few things have to fall into place. Nonetheless we are quite aware of how important this is to get done.
The console component is not finished yet, we needed more framework tweeking for it to become usable. The main change is that originally we planned to make two separate modules, one for local services and one for cloud services, but when developing the first component we realized that these modules don’t need to be separated, we just need to add one layer of abstraction to be fully integrated, so the first component will be finished next week.

The faucet has been fixed by the designer Alferz (Josh) but will remain non functional until an explorer with an API is established. The faucet used ‘worldcoinexplorer.com’ which now doesn’t exist and it is now clear what needs to happen.
It’s Wednesday, Wednesday, gotta get down on Wednesday, looking forward to… Thursday? As usual things have been happening and we are getting ever closer to our end goal.
The page has been completed which displays our growing list of multi lingual volunteers who speak on our behalf, telling the other half of the world what is going on with Worldcoin. The page has all the social media links, representative names, general report translation links and even dedicated fan pages for specific countries. Translation is very important, we are always looking for new recruits. If you wish to volunteer then please send us an email at email@example.com and we can point you in the correct direction.
Some tweaks are being made to log component and WDC framework, as we previously announced it will take one more week to finish the implementation of the Console component, we are still on track to this objective.
WDC framework design was changed a little, it will be composed of two parts:
Local services - Where all information is extracted from the block chain in the local computer (current wallet functionality and more, a lot more)
Network services - Information extracted from internet and various services providers
The key part is that developers won’t notice the difference from the programming point of view. For them it will all appear as if the data is coming from one place. For example if they want to develop a component showing the most well ranked sold items, they won’t need to connect to every shop integrated to the wallet, they won’t even need to know that they are connecting to somewhere, for them it will appear that all info is extracted from the local pc.
Internally the framework will establish the connection to Pulzar which will consolidate the information requested sending it back to the wallet, then the framework will ‘translate’ it to a predetermined standard table where the developer will be able to use the information and display it however he likes.
Worldcoin Web page
We have a internal discussion about the final layout web page should have.
Please vote if you like the new ‘hero slider’ at http://forum.worldcoin.global/index.php?/topic/101-worldcoinglobal-slider-yay-or-nay/
Bear in mind that what it is important right now is the layout and content, colours may change in the future.

The Committee is aware that a block explorer ‘worldcoinexplorer’ has shut down without warning. We are trying to contact the owner so we can host the page, if we are not able to do this, we will evaluate if we can open a space in our dev schedule to implement our own quickly. Some precautions were already taken so we have a quote for fast implementation in case it’s necessary. Bear in mind that sooner or later the wallet will have this service integrated.
About Current Price Committee won’t ever discuss price officially, opinions of individuals don’t necessary reflect official stance.
We are now in the first quarter of May, the parading is over and it’s time to tell you what has been going on this week.
New Website Complete
At long last, the website is finally complete featuring a completely new layout, revamped content and also numerous added FAQs and user friendly tutorials. We are moving away from the ‘Worldcoin Alliance’ and are slowly changing all assets to 'Worldcoin Global'. This will be the mark of a new era, it was said many months ago, almost a year actually that we would regroup officially into another organisation. We have done just that and have stepped up to improve Worldcoin as rapidly as possible. We are aware of the competition, what needs to be done. More information on the website is here.
Updated Log Panel
In the development front, we are implementing the log panel, this panel will contain a lot of messages from WBC and will be stored on hard disk by default (you can disable that if you want ), WBC will create one file per session for easy access and maintenance. This is very important for us to provide support and to understand what exactly the Business Center was doing.
We started to implement custom tables to view formatted data.
Lets give an example:
The log panel is composed by 4 columns: Code, Date, Time, Message. Each column has a specific custom data type. Code has ‘KeyType’, ‘Date haste’, ‘DateType’ and so on; WBC will use these data types to automatically give the correct format including the colour, alignment, width, background colour and various other properties. This will make easier to theme because it would be only necessary to define once the properties of DateType for example and this will affect every date in every module across WBC. These features will be complete for the next weekly news

We need to change slogan, the current slogan “think outside the banks” does not represent accurately our goals. The new slogan needs to reflect the fact that we are targeting for legal business to use our coin as a viable alternative to fiat. So we will collect some ideas from our supporters and the best ones will be subject to a poll. Non acceptable ideas would be anything that might prove troublesome in the future, crypto currencies are still controversial and governments in some countries have taken action to prevent their usage.
Other things that we have been doing is gathering representatives to speak on our behalf and translate weekly reports or just communicate within the community in our native language. Please welcome Buggie (Peter) of Cryptodiggers who has stepped forward to translate in Slovakian our reports on Facebook and eventually Worldcoin.sk when it is ready.
It’s still April and we are still here! Last week there was significant progress regarding the website and it has been finished. We will be working towards adding some of the reports that appeared whilst building it and continue to port it over to the new domain. Definitely expect it to be out very soon, possibly next week.
The Worldcoin Business Center has made its first appearance after Mario posted some screenshots of the progress so far. Although it is not a final design and simply a rough layout, people seem to like it regardless. We would like to explain a little about what you have seen in the screenshots posted on sunday. If you haven’t seen any of them we’ll post one here just for you.
We’ll start with the top bar which is called the ‘Info Bar’, there you will receive some important information about the current state of the ‘Business Center’, like if your wallet is encrypted, if you have downloaded all of the chain, if you are connected to the network and some other interesting details. There are two panels in the bottom. The search panel is where there will be a display of the last transactions made depending on the component you have chosen, for example if you are working with the “Transfer Crypto” component, this panel will show the last sent transactions.
The other panel is the log panel where every single action will be displayed. These logs will be stored in hard drive if you want them to be. At first they will play a very important role to provide proper support and feedback. The left panel is called the module panel. It automatically adds all the Components (plugins) available, these Components are grouped in Modules. Modules are grouped in Areas establishing a 3 layer categorized system. Each component is codified with a colour specifying their role, for example module configuration Components will be coded with the colour White.
When you click on a component, for example 'Transfer Crypto' then a sub window will appear on the big center area which is called ‘The Workspace’, the Workspace can have many ‘Desktops’ and each Desktop can have many Components open. This way you can work with many Components at the same time. Also when you close the Business Center, it will save all you active Components so when you open it again, all the components will open again in the with the Desktops you were previously working with. The bottom thin bar is called the status bar, where some info about the activities currently being performed will be shown.
The future is looking promising! There is more information on the development thread.
Berzeck awarded Einstein award
Last week, the newest version of the Worldcoin wallet was released. So far there have been no critical issues although there is some confusion over what has actually changed. Nothing has changed in the wallet itself in V1.1.0 Chunky Monkey, how ever the configuration module has changed (WorldcoinBC Installer) which enables a faster initial hashed blockchain download. We’d like to point out that each update focus on just one area of development, in particular this update focused on the installation . When you update and think nothing has changed, IT HAS, but to the untrained eye is it difficult to put in perspective into something you cannot see fully. If you would like to know more about this update, read the release notes to gain further insight.
The interview was completed at the beginning of this week where we spoke to Briony Holmes from Bravenewcoin. She was very interested in Worldcoin just as much as the recent Water Well completion, so much that our conversation lasted well over an hour. We should be expecting an article very soon before the end of February.
You may have forgotten, remember the Martial Arts sponsorship programme that was led by Deane Parrott? Since then Worldcoin’s MYBJJ Sponsored Athletes Jonathon Wood competed and won the IBJJF Masters World Championship in America. Days ago another athlete won the IBJFF Abu Dhabi Championships in Sydney Australia, earning her an expenses paid trip to compete in the biggest grappling event in the world. Congratulations to Hope Douglas and all the best in Abu Dhabi! The flag has been around a bit since then and will be travelling further around the world. Pictures to follow in next mybjj update with Deane and crew for those who doubt us! T-shirts have not been printed yet, we’ll let you know when they are, stay tuned for more news on how the MyBJJ team gets on. Full article is here.
