Oct 2019 Development Update

1) Waves Webclient

Waves recently updated its WebClient’s backend and some of its gateways. Since our WebClient is also connected to this backend, we immediately began experiencing technical issues. Fortunately, our developers were able to modify our WebClient so that it communicates properly with the updated Waves backend.

We’re currently testing this new webclient to ensure that all modifications can work properly with the updated backend. Once these tests are completed, we will make the new webclient available to the community.

2) XCITE Desktop

As our public Github repo reveals, we have begun creating a new version of the XCITE desktop client. This version includes a new backend code for XCITE, which is already used in our mobile client. In addition, it will also display a new user interface that is in line with our mobile client.

The goal of this new version is to update it to provide all the functionalities we already have with our mobile client in the new desktop client. These functionalities also include active wallets for XBY, XFUEL, and Testnet as well as passive wallets for BTC and ETH.

3) XCITE Mobile

We’ve been testing our mobile XCITE client for several months. Thanks to testers, we’ve been able to weed out most of the client-side bugs. However, we’re still working on perfecting the mobile client. As Apple and Google have new base requirements for mobile applications, we’ve had to update our code accordingly.


We have begun creating the network-based backend needed for X-CHAT. The backend allows users to connect to multiple nodes, allowing messages to be sent across the network.

Unlike other messaging applications, X-CHAT is not governed by a centralized entity. We already created a messaging client that interacts with this decentralized network, one that allows network users to easily send and receive messages. We are proud to say that we have successfully completed our first test with this decentralized messaging application.

Basic Test Interface

To accomplish this, we set up several nodes across the globe that work together to govern the messaging application. And we’ve succeeded in sending messages to each other while connected to the different nodes.

This is a huge step forward in the development of what will become X-CHAT. The next goal is to integrate this messaging client into XCITE so that we can test our decentralized network on a larger scale.

5) Team portal

Our developers have been working on a team portal, which makes it much easier to manage our decentralized team. This portal will help track the various tasks that are assigned to different team members. It will also allow team members to track the hours they contribute to the project (and help automate member payouts as well).

While the community might not have much use for this, it will help our teams operate more efficiently. It also highlights the skills of our developers as they’ve built it from scratch to fulfill our specific needs.
