The Etho team is meeting every Tuesday to review the progress done. So let’s get right to it and touch on: product development, naming, auxiliary development. And if you are interested to engage in an exciting project, reach out to us on discord.

Product development

Our development team gave an overview of the current status. Our current ETHOFS implementation and related contracts are very limited. On top the processing costs on the ETHO blockchain are too high. If we would have a high inflow of storage items this would create processing bottlenecks.

In order to improve the performance and also change characteristics such as length of storage etc new contracts have been developed. Currently they are tested on a local testnet and optimized. Dox has also started to develop a client to upload files, modify contract lengths etc, All that can be done using Metamask rather than a serial key as it is done today.

Testing and contract optimization is done during November, December would then potentially result into commits for a new geth version.

Naming

EthoFS is our old product name. We want to rebrand our product to represent something new and fresh.

As we are a community driven project, who would be the best to decide on the product naming than the community. Until this Sunday 18 CET you can vote on our discord . Here the product names you can vote on:

 

Wallet

Wallets are essential to have your coins stored off from exchanges. This weeks FTX story is a good example of “not your key, not your coin”. Allan has been working on get some traction on our wallets. Frank is looking at mobile wallet alternatives. You will see some movement in this area.

Until then you can always use Metamask or our own web wallet.

 

Please note that you always need to backup your wallets. No one from the team is able to support you if you loose access to the wallet and need to recreate your wallet.

 

Auxiliary development

 

We are looking into the possibility to allow the deployment of Etho IPFS nodes on Flux. Flux is a decentrlaized VPS crypto project. There are still some challenges, so development is ongoing. In that context we have also developed a docker image for IPFS deployment. So if you are familiar with docker and want to run it on a VPS, give it a try and provide us feedback. The officlal docker builds can be found here

Want to change the world?

 Etho Protocol is a community project with focus on the decentralization of content. We run a worldwide deployed network of IPFS nodes controlled by our own EVM capable blockchain. If you are a programmer, a tech enthusiast, a marketeer, a writer, a number cruncher or designer, we need you for the following areas:

Development

The development will be headed by Dox, the focus will be to drive the code development forward. Beside code development we will have the following areas to be covered:

Code maintenance, including github management, test and deployment of new code, running, maintaining and upgrading servers

Finance

Maybe a bit more straightforward, but we need to get more structure around our dev fund management, book keeping and of course want to get ideas how to grow the financial basis of ETHO. This includes also the management of our development funds. Work in some areas go hand in hand with the other teams.

Marketing

Marketing is about finding the right messages, for the right communities. Frank is doing what he can, but we clearly need more hands. We have several assets like Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, Facebook, and YouTube. Aim is to improve our messaging and engage with parties to scale our efforts. If you are a crypto influencer, even better. Get yourself invested, join the team and do the magic.

Business development

We want to build an ecosystem. Although we have already a strong team headed by Chris Terry, nothing is perfect and cannot be improved. If you like to develop business in the crypto space, you have come to the right place 

Don’t wait …

If you are interested in giving your career an interesting sidekick, do not look further. We are a terrific team and we have a product with a lot of opportunities. Check our other blogs here and you will understand that we are at a start of something new with a potential of a factor 100x. This is a lifetime opportunity. Reach to us on discord.
