Development Activity

Check the activities with the following links for the main repos:

Note: This only includes a portion of the activity from the Burst Apps Team

  • Account Activation Service launched

    Newly created Burst accounts are considered insecure until the owner executes a transaction. Doing so, a public key is being assigned to the account and though securing the account. To execute a transaction the owner needs at least some minimum balance to pay the fee for his first transaction. This was handled through the faucet system, where users could get some burst automatically. Unfortunately, this faucet used to be abused by certain individuals.

    BAT member ohager created a way to assign a (matching) public key to an account without the need of an outgoing transaction. This is considered as account activation. The account activation can be done manually using the web application, or using the  web service to activate accounts programmatically.
  • Phoenix supporting Account Activation

    The new account activation was also integrated in Phoenix and will be released very soon with Version 1.0.0-beta.12

  • Deeplink specification (CIP22) implemented in BRS

    The recently presented specification for deep links (CIP22) was implemented in BRS Version 3 by BAT member ohager. The API was extended by two new endpoints (namely: generateDeeplink and generateDeeplinkQRCode) that allows consistent deep link generation as URL or QR Code. With deep links it’s possible to make applications interoperate better, e.g. sending messages from within one application using another.

  • New Version of Mobile Wallet for Android released

  • New Version of BurstJS (0.4.3) released

    The new version improved developer experience using interfaces instead of long argument lists. The API settings are simplified also, and the Http module (based on axios) supports additional configuration, making the it more versatile
  •  New spoiler from the upcoming Burst-DEX

120,000 BURST were paid for the IOS Apps roll-out.

The BMF50 Pool and the BMF100 Pool generated a bi-weekly income around 1,600 BURST.

  • BMF 0-100 Pool to help sustain marketing and development

    BMF has announced a new 0-100 pool with a 1% fee, which will be dedicated to BMF-related activities like hackathons, bounties, advertisements, etc. We encourage miners to mine some extra space against this pool, as this is going to a good cause and helps keep things running like this very Burst Bi-weekly Report.
  • NDS-A now paid by script – every 10 hours

    The BMF (BURST Marketing Fund) is paying now the NDS-Award (Networtk-Distribution-Strengthen) every 10 hours to the node operators with valid BURST- addresses, newest BRS version (current BRS 2.4.2) and was seen with the payment of the reward. The NDS-A will be paid from the BMF NDS-A Distributor account.The crawler from is used to identify the valid nodes for the NDS-A.The interval is setup as a subscription from the BMF account with 110 BURST every 10 hours. The payment is fully automated in that way that everyone can send BURST to BMF NDS-A Distributor to distribute the BURST to the node operators. This script was provided by BAT developer Zoh!

    To participate in the NDS-A, you only need to operate a full-node with the current BRS version 2.4.2.

    Set your P2P.myPlatform to your BURST account.

    In your BRS config file set “P2P.shareMyAddress = yes”.

    Your node is connectable tcp/8123 “P2P.Port = 8123”Download the Qbundle 2.5.3 here and read the manual for the installation.
