📰 Blockmason Weekly Update: 2018–06–19


Welcome to the Blockmason Weekly Update!

Hello, Blockmason community! Another week is upon us, which means it’s time for another Weekly Update.

We’re excited to announce that our recent round of hiring is nearly complete. In the past month, we’ve welcomed a new Director of Growth, two new Community Managers, a Digital Marketing Specialist and a Business Development Manager.

Note that we’re still hunting for a Principal Software Engineer in North America. So if you know anyone who might be a fit, please encourage them to apply.

Now, on to the news! In this edition of the Weekly Update, we will give a quick update on Lndr v1.1, share a video review of Lndr and Blockmason and introduce you to the latest hire to join the Blockmason team.

Are you ready? Let’s get started!

Lndr version 1.1 is being quickly adopted

If you’ve been following along with our Weekly Updates you learned last week that Lndr version 1.1 was released to the major app stores. Lndr v1.1 was a significant milestone in our development roadmap and brings multi-currency recording and settlement to Lndr.

We’re excited to see that our user base has quickly adopted Lndr v1.1. In fact, more than 80% of iOS users and 60% of Android users have upgraded in the first week of availability, which is fantastic!

Our development team has now turned their attention to the next step in our roadmap, which is the addition of fiat currency settlement. As a reminder, here’s how our Lndr roadmap currently stands:

  • Late July/August 2018: Fiat currency settlement comes to Lndr. This means that you will be able to settle casual debts and IOUs between friends using fiat currencies.

  • August/September 2018: Group debt/IOU settlement comes to Lndr. For example, if you have a shared debt between a group of friends or want to split a large payment, you will be able to settle as a group.

  • October/November 2018: Other cryptocurrency settlement options come to Lndr, which means support for settling debts and IOUs in cryptocurrencies outside of ETH.

  • Late Q4 2018: Credit scoring based on on-chain and off-chain data comes to Lndr. This will allow for displaying a credit score for a user, based on a variety of factors, ensuring that you know how “creditworthy” someone is.

Remember, if you’re interested in staying up-to-date with Lndr development you can always view the latest Lndr development updates on Github.

You can download Lndr for iOS on the App Store and Lndr for Android on the Google Play Store.

Cryptosomniac’s video review of Lndr
