Hello Blockmason community! It's a new week, and that means a new Weekly Update. Today we have some exciting news concerning the Lndr roadmap, video reviews and interviews and some additional hiring to expand our growing team.

Let's get started!


Lndr roadmap update through Q4 2018

As you know, Lndr is our peer-to-peer expense sharing app that uses the Credit Protocol and the Ethereum blockchain to create, manage and settle casual debts and IOUs between friends.

Our development team led by Will, Devin and Ethan have recently met to update and confirm the many features coming to Lndr in 2018.

Here's the updated Lndr roadmap:

  • June 2018 (Lndr v1.1): The next edition of Lndr will include multi-currency settlement and support for ten new languages (Arabic, Czech, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Russian, Turkish, Thai and Vietnamese)

  • 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 "credit worthy" someone is.

V1.1 is in final testing now, so you can expect this update to be released soon.

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.
