Secure your Expanse with OPOLO.IO

We are very happy to announce that The Opolo Wallet now accepts Expanse, this amazing hardware wallet works with 120+ Coins/Blockchains, has 6+ Certified EAL Secure Chip, with 200K+Tokens on 2 Crypto Exchanges. 

We will be announcing discounts specially for our community. 

Amazing Opolo Functionalities

  • Genuine Device Check: The OPOLO hardware wallet comes with a unique, private key that is known only to OPOLO and it can be used for genuine device verification. Don’t worry about dupes!
  • USB Communication: The USB communication between the OPOLO wallet and the desktop or mobile app is encrypted with one of the most secure encryption algorithms in use today i.e. AES CBC with 256 bit key length.
  • Coin Exchange: The OPOLO wallet app has two third-party coin exchange options integrated, so you can get the best conversion rates possible. Keep more of your money!
  • Anti Theft Protection: For the ultimate security and protection of your crypto assets, the OPOLO wallet gets bricked and deletes the wallet data if there are 7 or more password failures.
  • PCB Potting: OPOLO wallet PCBs are potted so that no-one can tamper with the device circuit and the chips, providing the most extreme protection available against any hardware-based attacks. Carry with confidence!
  • Seamless User Experience: A 3.2-inch touch panel with a TFT LCD gives the most intuitive user experience on the market today. The touch screen makes it very easy to enter mnemonics, passwords, and passphrases directly onto the secure device.
  • Randomized Keyboard: The keys always appear in a randomized order on the keyboard to protect and secure your password and passphrases. It also helps us to protect the device against a modification of the touch panel chip that gets data from the touch screen. This is an added layer of security you don’t regularly see on wallets.
  • Malware and Virus Free: OPOLO firmware is signed with OPOLO keys and encrypted when installed on the device. This helps us to protect the device from illegal firmware installations. The device will be bricked if any non-signed firmware installation attempt is made.

Luna Wallet

Honestly, for the first time in the life of Luna Wallet, I am using it and love it. When it was first introduced, the Windows version didn’t work for me, and I needed the Windows version due to lack of knowing how to use anything else. I’m pretty sure there hasn’t been any development since v2 was released three weeks ago. For you Windows guys who commiserated with me, come back. To download the new Luna wallet and take advantage of the great new features, go to https://github.com/expanse-org/luna-wallet/releases/tag/2.0.0.

LUNA Wallet

Luna Wallet v2 was released last week with great reviews. Tokenlab is now integrated, along with a new EXP price indicator, user interface enhancements, and miscellaneous bug fixes. Monitor the Luna Wallet Discord channel to follow the discussion.

Behind the Tech – Farina Ashfaq

Hello People!

In this edition of Behind the Tech, we are featuring Farina Ashfaq, a leader in the Islamabad office of Expanse.

Farina received her degree in Software Engineering from Capital University of Science and Technology, Islamabad, Pakistan. Pretty early in life, she decided to make a career in the technology field. Soon after completing high school, Farina joined the Bachelors program to learn software engineering. “I was so fascinated with what I was learning that I remember studying during my vacations when my friends were chilling out!” As a result, by the time Farina completed her 4-year course, she had also mastered many different programming languages.

When you are passionate about something, you are usually good at it. Farina worked as a freelancer during college and gained valuable experience while other students were learning whatever was needed to pass the exams. Soon after her graduation, she joined Team Expanse and started working as a Front-End Developer.

Farina first heard about Blockchain tech during her college days from her elder brother, Asim, Architect and Senior Developer at Expanse. “Frankly, I found it quite fascinating. I owe it to my brother for bringing me into this field,” says Farina.

It has been almost a year since Farina joined Expanse. Her responsibilities included being the frontend developer of Tokenlab.. She also worked as a frontend developer for Gander and full-stack developer for Luna Wallet. She was recently promoted as Project Manager of Tokenlab.

On being asked what is the one thing about Expanse that excites her, Farina says, “Everything about Expanse excites me – the technologies we use, the awesome learning environment and cutting-edge projects that we are working on.” She loves getting challenged at every step of the way. “What we are doing is an extremely challenging, yet fun process. The more challenges you face, the better you get at what you are doing. It is an opportunity to learn and be better than you were. Good is not enough, you need to aspire to be the best.”

On being asked about her future plans, Farina says that she enjoys being a blockchain professional. “In my opinion, blockchain technology holds the key for an explosion of innovations in the next few years. I am glad to be on the bleeding-edge of those advancements.” She plans to study further and maybe get a master’s degree in blockchain tech in the near future.

Farina is super-positive about the future of Expanse. There are so many good things about Expanse that she wishes to mention that she feels will drive its growth in the coming years. “The vision, the team, the camaraderie, the great learning atmosphere, the helpful nature of everyone in the team, the awesome community and a shared belief that we are building something extraordinary – I think all of these things will matter as we step into the new year and further. I see a brilliant future for blockchain tech and Expanse, in particular.”

I think Christopher is a great visionary and I thank him deeply for giving me the opportunity to be part of the Expanse team. All of us here at the Islamabad office might be miles and hours away from him, but his vision resonates with all of us and we are completely aligned with what he wants Expanse to be,” says Farina, as she signs off.


Islamabad Office Goes Hollywood

Asim, our Architect and Senior Developer, is a true-blue blockchain evangelist. His passion to educate people about the glory of blockchain tech in general and Expanse in particular has given rise to an exciting idea that is taking shape in the Islamabad office.

The idea is to create an in-house studio to create videos that will inform and educate people (developers,blockchain enthusiasts and just about anybody who wants to know more about this exciting field) about Expanse – what it is and how it can be used to “create a world you wish to live in.”

Asim also plans to create tutorials, targeting the developer community, that will educate them on how to use Expanse to build high-quality disruptive and transformative dApps, as well as on core blockchain development. “These educational materials will publicize Expanse as well as help developers to easily implement business use case on blockchain,” explains Asim. We will have more info as this idea develops. Here’s a snap of how the studio is shaping up.


Gameboard Gets New Office Space

A new adventure begins!

While developing the technical aspects of Gameboard are a key focus now, the team is also planning the other vital issues of image, exposure and marketing. These are equally important to the success of the platform.

As part of the go-to-market positioning, Andres Garcia, the CFO of Gameboard, decided to found a new office in Guatemala. (Gameboard already has an established office in Florida for projects in the U.S. developed through Gameboard Corp, a company founded and established under the laws of Florida.)

After a thorough search, the team found the right spot in a location that is dubbed the “Silicon Valley Latino,” the TEC Campus Tecnologico in Guatemala City. TEC is a hub of technological innovation in Guatemala City  that seeks to recreate the platform of innovation and success of Silicon Valley in California.

The TEC, however, has its own concept, adapted to the realities of Guatemala and Latin America. The TEC offers an entire ecosystem – offices, library, co-working spaces, venues for events. It is located in 4 Grados Norte, in Zone 4 of Guatemala City. Cuatro Grados has been an area in the city that has always attracted new ideas and trends.

The TEC offers entrepreneurs, engineers, programmers, students, mentors, investors and anyone interested in technology, a platform where they can achieve their dreams of innovation and eventual business success.

The multiple resources present in the TEC, combined with the critical mass of people present innovating, training, investing, designing and inventing, make TEC the ideal point to launch our technology project. It seeks to turn Guatemala into a global Technology Hub by 2020. Soon TEC will expand to neighboring regions to this unique, integrated platform in neighboring countries.

We are pleased to tell you that the Gameboard office has been inaugurated into the TEC campus at the request of some large local companies we will start working with in January. (Stay tuned for more exciting news in this regard in the next issue of our newsletter).

Gameboard will use part of the EXP Grant awarded for the remodeling. Gameboard continues its march forward with the warm support from the Expanse community, You can be assured that there are some awesome things coming to market in the very near future.


Chinese Community Update

Although the Chinese community is small, it is busy and growing steadily! Alex reports that they are now 3000+ strong and planning to open the Expanse office in China on January 1, 2019.

For those of you engaged in the Chinese cryptosphere, you can now find Expanse information and updates on the followingsites:

Another recent accomplishment is the approval to post Expanse news on the following media sites. These posts have been approved by the Chinese government, which is a requirement:

Congrats to Alex and all of the Chinese team members. We look forward to further growth and visibility.

Welcome to the seventh edition of the Expanse Newsletter for 2018. This publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of each month to share happenings within our community.

EXPANSE BOOTH COLLISION 2018 TECH CONFERENCE

We have some very exciting news for our community: Expanse was accepted into Collision 2018! So we will be showing Expanse at our own private booth at this prestigious conference, April 30 – May 3rd. This is truly our time to shine, so please come join us if you can. If you want to go, make sure to get started with reservations now, as there will also be a Jazz Festival at the same time and Hotel space is quite limited.

The Collision Technology Conference in New Orleans will have a vast variety of technology companies that go well beyond Blockchain, so this means countless new opportunities for the Expanse project to show how we can provide them effective Blockchain-based solutions. One of our key partners, Gameboard, we met at Collision 2017, and now we are working together extremely closely, to the point they have a position on our team.

In fact, by far the most important conference we have attended, and we have been at a lot of them, was Collision 2017 — When we were accepted to present as an Alpha Start-Up. Now, Expanse is much stronger and in a way better position to really impress the people at the Collision Conference. Most of the team will also be there, and now we have a lot to show off with our brand refresh and accomplishments. This is a great place to meet us while we are presenting Expanse to the world.

NEW EXPANSE WALLET

Our team has been busy working on a new wallet with powerful and unique features, along with a cool look that fits with the Expanse colors and designs. Some of the new features of this wallet are that you can trade within the wallet and buy Tokens, almost like a decentralized built in exchange that could be expanded in the future. Beyond that, great features like ease of moving wallets to different machines with a QR code. Here is what the lead wallet dev Asim said about it. “Yes, I have 10 EXP accounts on a desktop machine. Now I want to import into my laptop; old way, I import all accounts one by one, With new wallet, I transfer all accounts from my desktop to laptop just by scanning a QR code.”

Below are some more of the screenshots of the Wallet under development, and it is really in the polishing up stages at this point; nearly ready as you can see:

He also provided shots of the new Block Explorer that can be accessed with the wallet, so here are those:

As for the exact release date, when it is absolutely 100% ready beyond any possible doubt, but it is on the way.

EXPANSE SPONSORS A JUNIOR BASEBALL TEAM

EXPANSE SPONSORS A JUNIOR BASEBALL TEAM

Expanse is the only crypto with a Baseball team! Yes, this is a team for kids and not major league, but it is very cost effective and it helps people out, and gives Expanse some real world exposure outside of the normal world of crypto. In the end, Christopher Franko just loves helping and charity, and this was something he really wanted to do. Here are a few photos of the Expanse team kids playing Baseball:
