Let's make the session as productive as possible!@everyone is welcome



Great news on GEX progress: @479305199710765071> has finished working on the governance page!
It is the last page of the platform and we made a huge step approaching its final release;
we are now left with the implementation of the new design we already shared with you, and smart contracts.

https://beta.giant.exchange/governance/create-voting

The Governance page will show you how much GEX is decentralized; you can play on the beta platform and create votes that can affect the Exchange at its core. Once the final release will be out,@everyone can propose to change the dividend percentage, for example, can start a voting for any funding initiative, or changing anything else related the options of trading or governance; it is also on this page where developers can upload new smart contracts for assets or oracles, or starting a vote to change the code of an existing one.

  • Bootstrap was added
  • Windows build fix (32/64 bit versions stability)
  • Unexpected quit errors fix
  • Min stake size was added and increased to 10

To update your wallets:

  1. Download the wallet for your OS:
    https://github.com/GiantPay/GiantCore/releases/tag/1.3.0.0
  2. Launch
  3. If you haven't changed the path to the Giant blockchain you won't need to reindex.

To update your masternodes on VPS:

  2. Type the following commands one by one:
    cd GiantMasternodeSetup
    git pull
    chmod +x GiantMasternodeUpdate.sh

We are updating the explorer and will notify you once we finish.
If you have any issues please use <#457933757018537996>.

GiantPay/GiantCore
Giant Coin. Contribute to GiantPay/GiantCore development by creating an account on GitHub.

We have a few updates for@everyone from the Giant Community:

🤝 Giant Coin will be listed on the Midas.Investments platform soon.
This collaboration was initiated due to high demand from Midas users to have Giant Coin on the platform.
The Midas CoreTeam notified us of this demand and we've quickly worked out the listing.
The Midas Project has a record of more than 6 months of active and transparent development.
We are happy to join their ecosystem and present Giant to Midas users!

⚙ Our Devs are working hard on improving network stability and fixing build errors. During this week we'll release the mandatory update.
Don't worry, you'll have a week to update your wallet and masternodes before it goes out of sync.

As we are get closer to the major releases (Giant Contract) the true value, and advantages, of our technology becomes clearer.
At the moment the information on giantpay.network, and in WPs, do not wholly reflect these findings. Due to that, we have a few tasks to complete:

  • Updating texts on Giantpay.network
  • Updating and Expanding the roadmap
  • Enhancement of WPs structure:
    • Replacing WP1 and WP2 with a new WP that includes our core ideas;
    • Writing a technical paper based on WP2.

You can contribute to these tasks in several ways:

  • By recommending a blockchain project that has a really simple explanation of complex technical stuff
  • Providing feedback on the contents in WP
  • Post in <#439070879335317525> your main questions or aspects of the project than remain unclear for you

Stay tuned and don't miss the mandatory update!


Dear users, we have a few important updates!

We are closing MN-owners channel for the following reasons:

  • Giant is aiming to reach out to non-masternodes audience that might not be using Discord. This makes sharing inside information with priveleged Discord users a poor business practice.
  • The CoreTeam doesn't want to act as a centralized authority when it comes to deciding whether Investors that stake coins or use shared services can get access to the channel.
  • On-chain governance can fulfill decision-making functions this private channel has and make it more transparent and advanced practice.

We hope that you share our vision that led to this decision.

⚙ Our Developers are currently working on the new wallet release to imrpove the network stability and user experience.
If your wallet stops working and showing errors, please let us know, so we could fix it in the new version.
Send the following data to admi@giantpay.network with the title "Bug-fix":

  • A version of your operational system
  • A verison of GiantCore you are using
  • Debug.log
  • Error message (optionally)

Otherwise, you can use <#505047249898831880> channel. Thanks@everyone for cooperation!


Despite the disturbances the masternodes market was going trough this week the Giant CoreTeam continues to perform as Giant Blockchain reaches 3000 masternodes. Thanks@everyone for the support!

We are ready to share with you finished design of the Dashboard page that has various features to analyse your performance. It displays data for traders, brokers and oracles.
Quite soon beta.giant.exchange will include these graphics to be all set for connecting to Giant Contracts.

It's impossible to avoid the sensitive security topic. The recent situation shows that Developers and experienced users have to enlighten and to remind of basic security steps.
Following steps can dramatically decrease your chances of loosing crypto funds:

Be safe and have a good weekend!



Major updates, insight and changes haven't stopped us from day-to-day work.
Besides quaterly updates that addressed hot topics, we want to share with you the detailed picture.@everyone can now acknowledge what's going on in different parts of the project.
We switched to the new format of progress reports. Please, share how do you like it and leave comments!

March Results
The Giant CoreTeam now switches to the new format of progress reports. We are looking for a balance in delivering the overall picture…

One of the biggest challenges we face is to add clarity about the Giant Contract development.
During the past month I've been communicating with Devs in regard to Giant Contracts and researching smart contracts in general.
I learned what differentiates Giant from other smart contracts blockchains. I can't stress enough how important this is and what opportunities gives us.
It'll lead to White Papers update, non-masternodes marketing, contacts with blockchain experts.
The first result of my research is the detailed roadmap for Giant Contracts development.
Now@everyone can assess it and see the level of comprehension Giant Devs have:

https://giantpay.network/pages/giant-contract-q1-2019-update

Giant Contract Q1 2019 Update
Brief explanation of smart contracts and detailed roadmap of Giant Contracts development

We adopted the use of Masternode technology and entered this toxic market to launch the blockchain and start making progress from day one. Otherwise we’d have to spend too much valuable time on too many meetings, making buzz and shady partnerships. Instead, we started to perform our core tasks and many competent people joined the project because @everyone of you share our vision. Masternodes allowed us to decentralize the network fast and make it stable. However, the main value of Giant Blockchain is smart contracts with unique features, such as JavaScript usage, optimization solutions and spam control mechanisms. We want to keep up the current pace and make Giant one of the TOP 100 cryptocurrencies. I’ll move to South Korea to increase offline activities and learn from the fastest growing crypto industry there. Giant is stepping out of the masternodes only domain and is making Giant steps towards our ambitious goals and objectives.


The roadmap terms need additional clarifications. Our goal is to make the releases as soon as possible and anyone can see that by our Github commits. Nonetheless, at the end of Q4 2018 we explained why the concept of deadlines cannot be applicable to our situation, although all our web platforms updated the tasks to Q1 2019. This would be the perfect scenario if there were no unexpected challenges and additional tasks. Obviously, it’s not the case for IT, especially on the cutting edge of blockchain.

Our devs are extremely responsive to make the process transparent for@everyone and transparency in crypto is a quite controversial topic. The Core Team has various methods to make a project look good; I try to shed light on this and have dedicated a first article of my personal blog to this issue. It’s important to understand for any crypto investor. From the beginning Giant was following principles of decentralization. We made mistakes but not any that could jeopardize the future of the project, that’s why we are not afraid to speak about sensitive issues some other projects avoid to manipulate the market.

https://medium.com/@mirocheyz/the-dilemma-of-core-teams-in-decentralized-projects-4ef6b7b8053


The few weeks have been extremely productive in terms of development, management and general vision.
I, Mikhail Maximov, will become the project CEO, while Dmitry Filinberg is focusing on CTO responsibilities.
It is a reasonable and logical move for@everyone who’s been following our news and updates.
While Giant continues to build its ecosystem and reputation, it’s important to communicate with the crypto space more actively.
I will find a way to delegate part of my operational tasks and focus on overall business strategy, communications and media.

For those who’ve joined the project recently let me remind you, why it’s unique and has survived the bear market for the past 10 months:

  • Fair launch. Development at the expense of the Core Team
  • A high level of tech competences. The original idea and constant implementation
  • Business orientation. Parallel development of dApps

We also continue to stress how important it is to demonstrate that blockchain can add value and solve business tasks. Just like Bitcoin makes it possible, for 2 people, in any location, to exchange value directly. Giant is creating a safe environment for betting with no third party interference or control. One day a user will be able to open the Giant.Bet app on the phone, send a bet to the pool where any other user on earth can accept it. This is the future of betting with no third party control. Giant project has professionals who can make it work and to be adopted.


💳 You've probably known about the deal between Polis and MasterCard. It's a huge progress for the entire MN market which became more accessible.
Polis is giving away a free listing on PolisPay. Any project can benefit from it in terms of additional awareness. However, our case is unique.

Unlike many other projects Giant relies on specific use cases. Its success depends on the competition with non-crypto companies from the gambling market. PolisPay is among other options of accessing non-crypto audience. We'll make steps in that directions anyways as it's in the best interests of both parties. However, voting for GIC in this challenge is worth it. All the details are available for@everyone:

https://twitter.com/polispayapp/status/1105559400406634496

✅ We remind you about the verification procedure that was introduced a few months ago. Users that performed it keep access to the private chat of MN owners.

Hey@everyone! We've been quiet for some time due to the re-evaluation of work processes in the CoreTeam and general vision. A resume of these processes is coming soon.

In the meantime @439032526535917569> is working on a simple and useful tool to target MN investors who might not know about Giant Coin. You could help him out by answering only 3 questions of the NPS survey. Your feedback is highly appreciated!

https://ru.surveymonkey.com/r/VNLJJHD


A few months ago we met the Gentarium Team at the Blockchain Life conference 2018 in Saint Petersburg.
We quickly recognized the many similarities between our projects.
Just like them, we started from scratch with no ICO or external investments.
However, they performed well and outcompeted many other MN hosting platforms. Gentarium are respected and trusted by investors and users constantly improving their service and creating new opportunities.
We are confident that our partnership will prove to be mutually beneficial.

Gentarium provides besides a quality service a great rate
for@everyone of Giant MN owners!
Due to our partnership Giant users get a discount of 33% from the standard price for the
hosting of any number of Giant masternodes.
The price is only 2,67 USD a month for an unlimited period of time.

Thanks to Gentarium Team for support!

To raise the Community Team structure quality, we are running a second survey among those who submitted the first one. This is how we are going to get to know@everyone better and we hope on your cooperation. @514125253769822229> ensured that you got the private link.

Let us remind you why we promote this initiative:

  • The Core Team can’t grasp all the marketing opportunities at once

  • The active participants can perform and gain reputation to fund their activities from the Treasury

  • The Core Team seeks to build a professional environment in many areas with people ready to participate in the project development

  • The Giant development strategy is a so-called Blue Ocean Strategy. We are creating a unique product with no growth limits. The creative potential of any participant can make a difference for Giant.

A quick heads-up for@everyone interested in the most recent Giant news.

⚙ Giant CEO Dmitry Filinberg is currently attending TeamLead Conf 2019 in Moscow, Russia.
This event is made exclusively for Team Leads to exchange experience and find together what it means to be a good administrator.

For instance, one lecture will be dedicated to the topic of responsibilities delegation by Skyeng.
Another one is directly connected with the way how we work — Team Lead Soft Skills Scrum Style by Orange Training Group.
And while Dmitry is gaining valuable insights, we continue our job to bring you a secure cutting-edge smart contracts system.
You can always suggest us what we can learn from other blockchain projects in <#439070879335317525> and <#465617944064557056>.

🛒 Another recent event: Giant Coin (GIC) is now accepted as a payment method by HumanAction.io — a libertarian online apparel shop. After visiting it, you may soon find yourself drinking coffee from a cup with Ludwig von Mizes while wearing a T-shirt with Rothbard or Hayek.
Giant founders fully support the concept of a free digital market without any state borders.

🚨🚨We are now accepting Giant coin as a form of payment in our store https://t.co/mtXPPW0Exu! $gic is one of the most promising projects with one of the most active and transparent dev teams out there! 🚨🚨 #buidl @giant_coin $gic

This news is for@everyone who speaks Russian in the Giant community. Recently the project's been explored by a popular Russian cryptocurrency blogger (248k subs) who added Giant Coin (GIC) to his investment portfolio. Quite interested in the classic Proof-of-Work hardware mining several years ago, Roman Tomera now believes that the future belongs to Proof-of-Stake and/or masternode projects. You don't have to own a special application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) to get more PoS coins.

https://youtu.be/VEdOCDF-G3w?t=801

Roman Tomera thinks that Giant Coin will become more capitalized because:

  • when released, our JavaScript smart contracts will be very popular among the biggest Devs community
  • our first dApp might be able to solve the problem of nefarious brokers in the bets industry

We are very pleased to hear that "there is no reason not to trust" our project.
Clearly, this is a result of our online development progress reports and the transparent approach we sustain.
