Welcome, all to December. With the year coming to a close and the holidays right around the corner, we expect a moderate slow in development and a lighter workload overall for this upcoming month. That being said, we want to give you all some insight into what has occurred in the past month, and what our plans are for December.
While we anticipated the payment gateway project finalization by this update, we are still working with CoinGate on our business account setup. Over the past two months, we have been working closely with CoinGate to finalize our application. The reason for the delay has been restrictions that exist in account setup that we have had to find workarounds for. Each submission takes approximately two weeks for CoinGate to review. In the last two attempts we have made, CoinGate has asked us to make changes to the application, which have caused us to have setbacks. We are still working with CoinGate, and once finalized, we will notify you all.
In addition to finalizing the business application with CoinGate, we have also made a few changes to the way our payment gateway will look. You can see the changes in the photo below.
Most notably, we have added a drop-down menu that allows users to select the amount of time that they wish to purchase, and our designer has better aligned the design with our current website designs.
Ease of use
Our development team is still in the process of finalizing the easy VPN. While that process is still in the works, we have noticed an uptick in the number of users commenting on our YouTube channel with questions or concerns with the ease of use of our products. As we move forward, we aim to polish our current products and make them as simple as possible to use. We have asked some of the users that have commented to provide us with details of how we can improve or have a meeting with us, so we can better understand what we can do to make using our products easy. If you have any feedback that you would like to share, feel free to reach out to us via email, Discord, or Telegram. We would love to hear your feedback.
Cost reduction methods
In addition to the above-mentioned aspects of our business that we have been working on over the past month, we have also been reviewing our monthly costs and finding areas of improvement, which will allow us to continue to work for a longer period of time, and with significant cost reductions.
Like always, we are keeping a close eye on the changes to Monero’s algorithm, and we are reviewing the implementation on our end. Once we have more details about our plans, we will notify our community. When code base changes occur, we notify our community in the form of a standalone update.
