Weekly Crown Update 27th November to 4th December 2017

First Commercial Hardware on Crown

We are proud to announce that we have secured a partnership with G-ME. G-ME is a tracking and communication device for children, families, elderly people and more that can enable them to register the device and its identity on the Crown blockchain. Our blockchain works as an immutable database, and the emergency information G-ME will provide cannot be counterfeited. This means that no one can change your blood type or emergency phone number. It is important to reiterate that personal information such as location, emergency phones, and diseases won't be available publically because it's not written to the blockchain in plaintext. It uses one-way encryption (hash) to do that, so the result cannot be decrypted and it doesn't reveal any information about personal data. This will be the first project built on Crown!





New Team Members

Two new team members have joined us starting today. The new developer has many years of experience in software engineering and architecture of different projects like enterprise security systems, forensics software, distributed systems etc. On previous projects, he worked as a senior developer, development coordinator and software architect. He will be working on governance part of Crown. Another team member will take the leading role of QA on the project. He also has many years of software testing experience and 2 ISTQB qualifications in testing. He worked as a senior quality analyst, and previously as a test manager and test team lead

We have worked with our marketing team to produce posts and ads that have been out since Tuesday. We have seen a great uptick in the community growth in just a few days since this effort has started and we expect the growth to continue.

Last week we visited blockchain summit in Kiev, and obtained direct contacts with some businesses such as Remme which could be helpful for the future. We prepared a video that can be found here: We also prepared a new proposal for the upcoming conference on the 15th of December. Some subtitles in Ua has done, improving social media

As well as working on getting ready for Crown exhibiting and sponsoring the Malta Blockchain Expo on 7th December, I've been working on cts.media's new push, #NodeKnowledge. Creating up to date node / network info for current node operators and also attract newcomers.
I've also submitted a joint proposal with Snoops to provide a free Systemnode. We're hoping to create a month long initiative, promoting a social media based prize draw, where the winner receives a free Systemnode and 12 months free hosting courtesy of Node-VPS

I have set up a coinscreen on on one of Perth's most popular Bitcoin ATMs which displays the live price of CRW/USD and CRW/BTC. This will incite public curiosity and attention. I've created infographics and a powerpoint in preparation for a presentation I will give this weekend on systemnodes.
I also created a twitter page which targets the Australian crypto community and am working towards attracting a much larger audience.
