Please take 2min of your time and leave a mention about lux to Beaxy at:
Today mark the end of the summer "vacation" on my side for the family, i know i have been less present in the past week and with the family back to its normal routine you guys can expect more activities from me & the team. I still have a lot of communication to make but i would like to start with the announcement of a great addition to the team.
I want you guys to welcome Owen ( @323887571925073930> ) to the team!
Owen has a background in law (J.D., L.L.M.), search engine optimization (SEO), and legal marketing. He is the founder of an SEO agency tailored towards blockchain projects and law firms, and has helped everyone from crypto hardware wallets, to decentralized exchanges, all the way to leading law firms, create SEO-friendly content and copy that ranks.
He will help me with us lot with content creation but also to make sure we can reach out to the most people possible with every content we create.
We are honored to have you joining us!
@everyone Scammers are getting more bold and have bigger ideas. Recently a fake GitHub page was found that is impersonating lux and has wallets to download. Don’t be fooled and Don’t download them. Make sure you check <#367834186540646402> for proper links. We are still using 5.3.3. When in doubt come here, click on a team member with a color on the right hand side of the screen and ask or ask in <#548230283556683806>.
There has never been and never will be a 5.3.4 release.
After a long wait, coinexchange.io finally back up & running for LUX. I'm glad that they resolved everything for our community who had some coins stuck there for a while now. Friendly reminder, exchanges are not a place to store your coins 😉 Happy Friday!
I am back from my vacation and appreciate your patience as I took a much-needed break with my family, but now it's back to work! And while I was gone, development continued on Luxgate and other products we are working on. You can expect some exciting updates and announcements over the coming weeks. I did want to mention that we are currently investigating possible improvements to our PoW algorithm to improve distribution among miners. We keep a close eye on our own miners as well as general improvements in the crypto industry so we can keep LUX as competitive and fair as possible. Specifically, we are currently looking at the new RandomX algo. Stay tuned for more updates!
Just want to give you a quick heads up that i will be in vacation for the next 2 weeks with my family. I hope everyone took a little time for themself away from crypto to enjoy the summer. Please dont break everything while im gone 😃 Dont expect the same answering time for all dm’s as im really trying to reenergize myself to continue pushing Lux when i get back. Love you all & see you soon!
We are excited to reveal a new Luxcore product under development! LuxEdge is a decentralized software development platform and repository specifically built for developers embracing blockchain technology and decentralization. It is built as an application on top of the Luxcore Decentralized File System (DFS), using the DFS for its file storage and reliability. This shows one of many use cases of DFS that we are very excited about. LuxEdge is currently slated for Alpha testing to begin in Q4 of 2019. You can read more about the product here: https://luxcore.io/luxedge/
With Luxgate, Luxcore's DFS product, and the new LuxEdge platform, we believe we are truly distinguishing ourselves and building a family of core products to serve a large market. Thank you for being a part of this journey!
@everyone LUX has successfully implemented a major fork at block 828100. This fork brings changes to block rewards (which you can find more info about above) and implements various fixes and improvements which we will be talking more about soon. One major enhancement is Schnorr signature integration, which we may be only the 2nd coin to have implemented this (Bitcoin Cash and LUX - Bitcoin is expected to add this soon). Some next steps for our chain upgrades include a full upgrade to the Bitcoin 0.18 codebase. This will allow us to further integrate with partners and move forward with new advanced features.
Special thanks for all the hard work @380139003397275648> & @388487848451637249> and the entire Luxcore team. Also, we appreciate the community's support and we are excited about future developments!
FYI, if you did not upgrade your wallet, you can download the latest version at: https://github.com/LUX-Core/lux/releases/tag/v5.3.3
You may have to reset your local blocks (if you are on a bad chain), and you can find a guide for that process here: https://docs.luxcore.io/docs/user-guide-windows
And if you have already updated, we pushed out a minor update this morning. Nothing major, but if you have the time to upgrade again that would be great.
@everyone explorer.luxcore.io is going to be down for maintenance for a few minutes. thx!
We have just release a mandatory update (v5.3.3) for the Lux wallet, please update as soon as possible to avoid getting on a fork. Thank you!
This update brings a lot of changes, bug fixes, and new updates. For a full list, please see the change log on GitHub. Also included is the new rewards formula (see our previous announcement for more information). The fork block is set for 828100, which should be around Wednesday, July 24, 2019 (depending on your time zone).
Thank you for your support!
Coinrivet had me in an interview some time ago after we had our round of golf with Ron Pearlman, they just release it is today if you want to have a look at it: https://coinrivet.com/luxcore-snaps-up-hollywood-star-ron-perlman-to-bring-exposure-to-crypto-space/
Exchanges have been put in maintenance for the upcoming fork at block
828100 this is a mandatory update for everyone and we will announce here as soon as the release is ready and available for everyone. If you use the web / mobile wallet you dont have to do anything on your site, everything will be taken care of by us.
Lets get a little exposure here, if any of you have not voted yet please do 😃
Some changes have been made to the <#493455500466192424> channel so that the team can clearly see and focus on suggestions and they don't get washed away with chatting. If you have a suggestion please let us know by posting in <#493455500466192424>, if you want to chat about it please use <#548230283556683806>.
Thank you and sorry for any confusion.
There will be a better announcement later next week for the DFS / PMN, i unfortunately lost a couple of things for it last night with a computer crash and had to come back at the office this morning so i can show you the dfs in time 😃 Lot more and better information will be push out there in the coming days.
We will also unveil the new product that will sit on top of the DFS / PMN in the coming days as well, you guys shouldnt have to wait to long, it's a project i'm personally very excited about and i hope most of you will like the idea.
Have a nice weekend!

Special mention to @355685218981511179> for his constant hard work!
We at Luxcore have been hard at work developing our core product, LuxGate, which will empower cryptocurrency users to trade in a trustless, peer-to-peer process that is simple and safe. We are proud to announce that our Alpha testing has been successful and we are pushing ahead with our next stages. We have written an introduction to LuxGate answering some of the questions you may have, as well as a new video and screen shots showing the newly implemented UI. Please note, this is an Alpha version and there are still many improvements coming on the front and back end before final launch. We are working toward a Beta test which we will be announcing in the coming weeks, once the product is more developed and ready for a wider test audience. We look forward to getting LuxGate out to the masses when it's ready to launch! Stay tuned and thanks for your support!
LUX to be added on the next 1.1 update release. Thank you NextExchange for the support to our project and @256883507631095828> to have engaged with them.
