Hello, Blockmason community! June has arrived, and what better way to celebrate than with a brand new Weekly Update? In this edition, we’ll share a sneak peek at our new Credit Protocol product video, some news about the fast-approaching Lndr v1.1 release, a video review of the Credit Protocol and Lndr, another panel discussion featuring our CEO Michael Chin and more.

Let’s get started!


Sneak peek: Blockmason’s new Credit Protocol product video

As you will recall from previous Weekly Updates or our Telegram chat, our team is working on a brand-new website that is set to go live later this month. The site will have a number of new features, including product videos for the Credit Protocol, Lndr and more.

We’re excited to offer our community members a preview of some of the video marketing that will be showcased on the new website. This video explains the Credit Protocol, how it works, key use cases and industries that can leverage our technological innovations.

Check out the video on YouTube here:

About that new website...

We're also excited to share that the design stage for our new website is complete and that we've moved into development. There isn't much else to report at this point, so keep your eyes on our Telegram group as that is the first place we will share screenshots and updates.


Lndr version 1.1 development update

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 has been hard at work on the next version of Lndr, v1.1. The two major features coming in v1.1 are multi-currency settlement and support for ten new languages (Arabic, Czech, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Russian, Turkish, Thai and Vietnamese).

If you're paying close attention to our Github, you may have seen some exciting news:

✔ Multi-currency settlement is tested and working perfectly! ✔

This means that we're very close to releasing v1.1 to the various app stores. Our development team is working on some additional user experience updates and performance improvements before the final release.

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.


Blockchain-enabled decentralization is the solution to Visa’s European failure

If you live in or are visiting Europe, you may have been a victim of Visa's massive outage on Friday, June 1 which left millions of businesses and consumers unable to pay for goods and services.
