Okie dokie....@everyone provided we don't go to crazy, and overextend ourselves hosting, it looks like we now have a new fancy block explorer https://explorer.adultchain.me its locked down and ready to go, with an up to date blockchain, I can finally confirm everything looks about the same as it did before as far as I can see, so that's a good sign, now to the next few things... I now have the SQL for our platform, and its currently live, but only in house staging, so you don't get to play around yet, but things are finally moving along now, seems like this will go slow and steady but progress will be made, even if its just baby steps and drama the entire time, it seems even the mightiest of projects are not immune to these types of things we are experiencing. We are certainly way more organized and have a team in the making to fall back on now. I also reluctantly put this up but it seems like we have had a few generous offers to help donate to the server fund, and I turned them down having not really done anything for them but, should anyone feel motivated to help, please do, we will make this address public for donations BTC : 1CWMxumudvxfRB3nB1DPRZp8w7U4AdSTdZ trying to piece together as much free hosting as I can though, even exploring hosting decentralized. Thanks for all your support I cant say I saw much of this happening the way it all kind of did.
Let's continue to move forward and keep things positive despite the BS, were stronger working together as a community. Please make your voices heard I try and read as much as I can but keep pestering us and it should eventually be on my radar. I appreciate the people already helping me with this. Running a project from all aspects it's just mind-boggling never mind any coding lol I could talk all day in discord sometimes talking instead of working /facepalm.
Love you guys lets keep the positivity going, and lay the smack down on any negativity! Will update you soon, hopefully with a working platform soon.
PS: Funding the servers for all this has been absolutely out to lunch, but have recently learned snapshots apparently cost money when I was told at one point they didn't, so I hope to keep those costs down, but any help the community would help with would be appreciated. We have had one gracious donor a while ago, but the expensive hosting made short work of what we were given. Now that we have things sorted out I hope your donations if any will go WAY longer then before. We still have $75 dollars credit at Digital Ocean, for now, PM me if you would like to help, even $20 goes a long way. Im sorry this is super not my style but will keep track of donors in case I get to repay the favour.
Alright time for another update, I apologize for them not being as frequent as Id like, but I have good news finally, we finally got the .sql database we need to complete the platform, I'm being told there are a few other files pending delivery, but if our boy blue comes through we will finally have a platform we can get down to actually using...
That being said there are going to be many prerequisites to actually going live and onboarding as there is a bit of a legal aspect we need to explore to make sure we have a viable project that won't be rejected or denied any partnerships or other dealings. There are many things still pending on the roadmap and my internal to-do list, but I can assure you we will grind this out despite any negativity or some people rightly checking off red flags and bailing on us. I don't blame you guys no hard feelings to some of you, but despite my silence in the channel at times the team is coming together nicely, and some real collaboration is finally taking place. We now have 2 marketers, 5 developers, some consultants, and a project management lead.
I hope to see more of you step up and join us, those of you who are solid people and stayed with us, or even stayed with us so not to sell at a loss you guys all mean a great deal to me now at this point, despite the lurkers and other douche bags trying to take advantage of our good nature, and comradery.
just partnered with masternodes.pro we have our own channel there now that should hopefull help grow interested in out tiny little project.. https://discord.gg/Jprtq3r join channel #adultchain
@everyone ok by now everyone knows cryptopia is in a boat load of their own trouble I guess and we are moving forward none the less and have been made aware of a new PoS attack that could affect our chain, and if so plan to patch it right away as it looks like a lot of exchanges will be making things like this a requirement in the future which is kinda of a good thing but we will address it...
@everyone I forgot to show you guys this
@everyone ive also contacted cryptopia AGAIN and am awaiting a response back, as will hopefully have the platform up and actually working soon I hope... Just waiting for our dev to be available he mentioned he was a little busy this week but Im still hopeful... thanks guys
@everyone just wanted to let you guys know we have added two new team members that happen to be friends of mine from a few other projects some of you may or may not know, please welcome @316376779851956224> and @345274058394304513> please be nice and treat them with respect... they will be helping us in all aspects but mainly marketing, so please introduce yourself and if you have any ideas I may have either ignored or not even responded to please bring up in marketing now... I have to be honest a lot of marketing escapes my understanding so I certainly appreciate them being here...
alrighty guys sorry for the delay in announcements, just wanted to say happy new year, unfortunately cryptopia has yet to get their shit together, but I have been in talks finally with a dev to finally finish the platform for us... we spent a short time going over the source code and it turns out we actually got handed an almost 100% complete platform but not having written the code and just not being familure with it in general it was hard to tell... so with that being said we are working towards getting the source code back online so we can proceed anyways while we wait for cryptopia
@everyone alrighty I figured out a way to get the mac os x versions working the way I need them too, did some initial testing and ive just built an official release... we are now 100% working on all platforms, please download from https://github.com/AdultChain/AdultChain/releases/ ps linux and windows guys you will get an updated UI soon
it was built against Mac OS X 10.12.6
@everyone ok idk why but apparently there is two sierras? ones high the other isnt I guess? like the versioning scheme wasnt confusing as fuck already.... but somene please test this https://gitlab.adultchain.me/adultchain/AdultChain-v122-Dirty/raw/master/AdultChain-Qt.dmg
@everyone ok nobody get too excited yet... but can someone at least say whos your mac daddy? I made a mistake and I think this is on sierra, not high sierra but I now have a system for you mactards... I hate to say it you guys are converting me to the darkside and I swore Id never touch a mac
@everyone if I hadnt already said it, Ive contacted cryptopia so everyone dont worry Im just waiting for a response back from what I hear it typically takes them a week to confirm the changes to the code which is fine hopefully as long as they aprove everythig
@everyone ok what a gong show, github has actually apologized for their radio silence, were back up https://github.com/adultchain we can finally talk to cryptopia now that we have a repo that doesn't look sketchy as fuck cause its the official repo their used to seeing, been working on some snazzy graphics for a new adultchain bitcointalk page in the mean time, also following up a few more offers to get this platform rolling, I appreciate all the support, some of you guys have actually reached out asking for a btc address they could donate to, and normally I wouldn't, but you have no idea how much of a balancing act this currently is and love not having to dilute the market cap selling xxx so if anyone else feels the need bitcoin:1NjTpbyjSvYbb9TSsaXbdk5BCwe84XZNo3 will now be the official donation address for now... everything sent there is being chucked at vultr and buying other needed infrastructure. Still looking to get a mac osx build out but it looks like 1.2.2 is otherwise stable and working... will update you all asap with anything else that comes up... working hard...
@everyone OMG its so late I cant even see straight just added our test for Mac OS X - High Sierra, I guess the splash screen doesnt go away but if your ok with that it should be good to test with... Please let us know how it runs... you can download it here on our new static builds page for now... to make it a little simpler for now https://www.adultchain.me/downloads/
okay its not pretty yet but I put up all the available static binary builds on a static page for you guys.... you dont have to use a repo if your not that familiar https://www.adultchain.me/downloads/ will slowly be updating the website too@everyone
@everyone little past due, but please bear with me while I complete it, and or edit it, I have thrown up a tentitive roadmap that I am using more or less to keep track of our progress https://www.adultchain.me/roadmap/ also I am working on a page similar for downloads so theres no need to rely on 3rd parties
@everyone we are still looking for people qualified to be our front end developer so far Ive talked to quite a few people saying all kinds of things then no follow through and they dissapear. Still have another juniour web dev banging away on a secondary front end, but Id really like to find someone who talks the talk and walks the walk.... Will be putting more feelers out there on dev.to and sites like it, if anyone knows anyone who can pull their weight and not just their mouths please let me know ASAP, ps still asking around in my personal cirlces but those guys are all busy on other projects and generally grumpy and swamped as well lol
