Moonstone current progress

As you know, blockchain technology is rapidly developing. People from the banking, music and many other industries are finding it can be a game-changer for them. This makes blockchain technology one of the most dynamic, unpredictable, and disruptive industries to be in. These are exciting times! And our Moonstone is trying to forge a way into the future.

We are developing blockchains for some time now, and it’s difficult to end up with an elegant piece of code. When utilizing the complex concepts from the financial world, software development and cryptography, in order to bring about functionality that has never been seen before, you end up with a lot of tangled up C++ code. And with the pace of development this industry has, overnight everything changes and you need to adapt. Refactoring of the codebase into something SOLID principles is also often out of the question once the code is up and running, due to the fear of disrupting the network. We have definitely experienced all of this with Moonstone.

Furthermore, very few people understand blockchains on a fundamental level, and those who say they do, have trouble explaining them. Few have actually used one in its raw sense. Even fewer people understand the nuanced functions of distributed ledgers, immutability, distributed or centralized time stamping, or optimisation requirements. Most throw all of these into a single bucket which they call “blockchain”.

Since Graphene got published on Github, we have been utilizing our resources to understand its range of capabilities. We originally planned to release Moonstone Alpha on Bitshares 1.0, but we decided to dive into Graphene.

Graphene, is still under development, nonetheless we have managed to integrate Moonstone with it. Currently we can: create markets and perform transactions successfully, create and search other users’ on-chain, transact with user-friendly names and public keys.
 
Moonstone’s mission is to be the intuitive one-stop interface for every blockchain out there, with a slick design and UX that can be easily integrated by every blockchain developer.
Buying, selling, exchanging, and transacting tokens all done in on the fly with an easy to use interface. We aim to keep it like that with every blockchain we integrate.


Features that we have been working on since the fundraiser:
  • Fluid asset pair search as well as market creation.
  • Transaction status icons: completed, pending and failed (color coded too). Checked on chain.
  • Transaction progress bar.
  • Advanced user search and auto-fill.
  • Advanced signup flow.

We are waiting for the final release of Bitshares 2.0 to do final testing of Moonstone.
 
We would like to thank everyone that has tested our demo interface and sent us feedback. Your comments and suggestions have been invaluable to us and have guided us in our market interface modifications as well as the signup flow!

It's really looking amazing Taulant bravo!
If I could make one suggestion, as far as branding goes. It seems to me that some of the terms we use have become Case Sensitive. This is how I see them most often:
 
BitShares
BitAssets
Smartcoins
bitUSD
bitEUR
bitCNY
 etc
Bitcoin
 
I'm probably wrong on a few of those, but that is how I see those words most often. Branding-wise it would be good to stick to our standards if they exist.
 
Other than Case, it really looks great so far Taulant!! +5% +5% +5% :)

Will/does the Bitshares 2.0 Moonstone wallet have support for local trades with QR codes (sending and receiving funds) like mycelium?

With the existing prediction market pieces in the blockchain, have you considered adding a prediction market to your wallet software? With Augur raising millions, it might be an opportunity for everyone that missed out on that one to jump in. It also promotes another use of your wallet and makes it unique.

On the bright side, they might release a 100% complete product. It's taking a while but it will be worth it if it's complete, fully functional and friendly.

Couldn't we time that with any of BitShares' releases? Like the Stealth or rate limited fees or Microsoft Azure? More impact.
