The third week is complete and networking has had major strides made on it. I now have a good map of how the P2P network will be constructed and how nodes will communicate with each other. Major progress has been made and a lot of code written since last week on networking and verification. I am hoping to give nodes the capacity to sync over the network by the end of this week. From there I will start on wallet work and being able to create transactions that only one person can spend. Along with building the RPC so you can use a command line app to interface with the node.
On the large scale, I’m not sure we will have the complete xcv-alpha done by the end of Q1 - there is more complexity here then I anticipated, but don’t worry, we will have something that you’ll be able to download and play with Soon.
