STRAKS 7 for 7: Edition 1


Welcome to the first STRAKS 7 for 7. The 7 for 7 is intended to provide the cryptocurrency community at large with a quick and easy to read rundown of recent events related to STRAKS and the wider cryptocurrency sector at large.

Our intent is to use the 7 for 7 as a platform for keeping relevant topics easily accessible, that will serve to brief new community members of key STRAKS information instantly, and to inform and maintain dialogue with our dedicated and passionate existing follower base.

Note that key announcements in relation to the project will continue be made ad-hoc and via relevant media channels, and the team’s main point of contact, Discord.

The STRAKS Team is proud to announce the first major integration with an e-commerce plugin!

MyCryptoCheckout recently completed the integration of STRAKS into their payment gateway solution allowing STRAKS to be included as a payment option in their plugin https://mycryptocheckout.com/

Get the plugin at: https://wordpress.org/plugins/mycryptocheckout/

STRAKS Bounties
To encourage community involvement the STRAKS Team announced a bounty program in early June. We have extended the bounty program through July 31st, 2018. If found to be a successful means of growing the community we will consider extending the bounty program, and evaluate the rewards offered on a monthly basis. https://straks.tech/insight/straks-bounty-rewards.html

The STRAKS Team is also hard at work at creating a straightforward translation platform to allow community members fluent in multiple languages to assist in localizing the website and other resources into multiple languages. We will notify the community when this tool has been released.

 

Current Roadmap Updates:

Straks Vote will be ready for internal testing by the end of the week!
We apologize for the delays, there were some unforeseen circumstances that delayed the completion of the product in the intended timeframe, but development is back under active status, and we will update the community if there will be any further delays.

Straks Market is in active development
features and target release date will be updated in an upcoming weekly update.
