EXPANSE NEWSLETTER Vo. 1, No.6– 7/20/2016 Borderless GUI Launch

in #money5 years ago


Welcome to the sixth edition of the Expanse Newsletter! This publication is a bi-monthly Newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of each month (normally) to share news with our community. Keep in mind that breaking news can come at any time, but the Expanse Newsletter is a great overview of progress, news, and our current focus.


We are thrilled to announce the start of the public test of the Borderless GUI for Expanse! Thank you for your patience, and as you are likely aware the Newsletter was delayed this time so we could start the public test of Borderless the earliest. Delays can happen with software development, but the time has finally come for Borderless to begin alpha testing, and then later, practical use in the real world. This is an alpha test and there could be bugs, and some features are still being implemented. Go ahead and download it and try it out for yourself now, it is ready to test! Current features include: Marriages, Status updates, Web Of Trust, Notary, Citizenship, and many more features on the way soon!







We are extremely proud to announce our new partnership with Payu Vane and MAZA. The Expanse team will be building out Borderless tech for the Lakota Tribes people that Payu represents. MAZA will still be used as their currency, and Expanse Borderless will handle governmental services as needed by the Lakota.

The Lakota people are some of the poorest and most forgotten in America, with the greatest poverty and highest unemployment, and with the least access to technology they need to compete in the modern world.

Payu has been passionately fighting for years to bring his people into the modern world with technology, to offer his people independence, and we stand with Payu and will do everything in our power to make his amazing dream a reality.









Borderless isn’t the only thing going on inside the Expanse project! We’ve got all sorts of interesting things going on from improvements on existing technologies to exciting new features and components! Here are some of things upcoming for Expanse:

A. The Expanse Decentralized Autonomous Organization

We have been consistently developing our DAO platform over the last few months, and will soon start rolling it out progressively in modular phases. There has been a great deal of controversy over the term DAO ever since the recent attack on Ethereum’s “The DAO”. We want to assure users this recent security incident is not a negative reflect on the concept of DAO’s but a flaw in contract programming that could of been present in any non DAO contract and security has been taken at the utmost priority in its development..

B. Website and Block Explorer Update

We recently updated renovated our website with an amazing new design but have been slow to continuously populate it with new content. Along with publishing a new set of updates to the website, we will be implementing a new set of management and procedures to allow any community member to contribute to providing quick quality updates. In addition, we will be updating our block explorer to it’s newest version with a new theme matching the new site design, new features, and interactive tools such as those for managing and developing contracts.

C. Updates and expanding features of Borderless

This is just the start for Borderless; Its design and development goes far beyond was is demonstrated in the current release. As the flagship platform and toolset running on Expanse we have a great deal in the works for Borderless coming soon.

D. Improved Wallets with new looks, improvements, and custom features

New features are coming to the Expanse wallets, including extensible theme support such as customizable interface graphics and sound packs.

E. Community Documentation and Contribution Initiative

Expanse is a growing project with so much going on it can be hard to keep up. This documentation initiative has the goal to provide readily available documentation and guides covering a wide range of topics such as Community Contribution to the project, dApp development, and more, serving to formalize the practices and procedures used to manage and develop the project.


Nathan Patten completed additional wallets for PCs, Linux and Macs. These are easy basic wallets for those that just wish to send and receive EXP. We also still have the Mist based wallets, which are an easy option for some if they only want to send and receive. Note: In the future the visuals will be updated for these new wallets.




7/13/2016 Danny Sessoms interviews Christopher Franko about Expanse and Borderless. Danny always keeps it entertaining and informative so make sure and check out the interview.


6/09/2016 Jamie Redman of News.Bitcoin.com asked some great interview questions of our team, and this is the most in depth team interview to date:


5/23/2016 - We are proud to announce Expanse has Partnered with ‪#‎CenturyLink‬ to offer BaaS. Expanse is one of the very first blockchains to start a working relationship with Centurylink CTL. Centurylink is the third largest telecommunications company in the USA after Verizon and AT&T. So we are very proud to be among the first two blockchain projects working with them. As we are also among a select few blockchains on Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Bizspark plus, we have been successful seeking out new mutually beneficial partnerships and working relationships, and we will continue to do so.


5/15/2016 - NRpatten has started up a new Official Expanse mining pool. Check it out.


5/15/2016 - New Media

As part of our ongoing branding and media initiatives, the team recently contracted a professional voice actor to produce a professional voice over for the Expanse introductory video, as well as additional various sound bites as part of a publically available sound kit for dApps. These will be used as part of an upcoming theme for the dapp-wallet. This sound pack can be previewed on SoundCloud.


05/04/2016 - The first Expanse Newsletter seems to have inspired an article by Cointelegraph! Check it out if you like, and we appreciate the article and the people at Cointelegraph.

05/01/2016 - New article in French about Expanse by “Le Coin Coin”:


Expanse official DAO reserve is still at 10 million and in cold storage, untouched. This will not be used at all until the DAO is implemented, and then by design only a small amount at a time can be voted to fund various elements of development. The team reserve is at 482,704, and is planned to be used over the next year to fund development.

This is awsome. So basically the first implementation of borderless is pineridge. I'm really impressed by the dedication Payu is showing though I certainly feel he has a tough audience. It takes time to break old norms but doesnt look like hes one back down.
