Hey Nem Community,
We know things have been quiet around LocationCore but we have finally got a few minutes to breathe so I wanted to just update everyone as to how things are going and what we have been up to over the past couple of months.
It took a while following the closing of the vote for our first milestone to be evaluated and the milestone funding delivered, this was due to a number of factors not least the huge hack at Coincheck that had everyone at NEM working flat out, because of the uncertainty around this process at the time we had to focus on the many other projects we had going on at Digital2Go, it has allowed us to wrap up a couple of projects we had going on so we can focus on getting LocationCore up and running! Unfortunately this also coincided with the huge downturn in the markets meaning that the funding we did receive from NEM wasn’t able to cover the outgoing expenses at the time - this is in part the reason for the slow burn on progress updates.
The big news is that Digital2Go as a company recently completed our Series A round funding, this has allowed us to start seeking the extra resources we will need in order to accomplish everything we have on our roadmap for Digital2Go.
Off the back of this we have recently moved into new offices in WeWork Irvine CA and WeWork Melbourne, the primary business function will be based in California with platform development being handled in Australia and Mexico.
We have now hired some really high calibre developers, some amazing sales staff and some senior strategic hires who can help us move forward with all of the different facets of not only LocationCore but also our partnerships in Digital2Go. We have also launched the LocationCore website (https://www.locationcore.com), it is still very basic but will eventually contain links to our repositories and tutorials on how to integrate LocationCore with applications etc.
During March we were in Dallas where we met with Clayton and Matt of He3Labs to discuss tokenomics and development support of the API piece of LocationCore, we are super excited to be working with these guys, they have the knowledge and experience of NEM to help us push forward in the best possible way.
Finally I want to thank all of the community members who have kept in touch during this time, and for those who helped us throughout the process, there will likely be another month or so of relative radio silence but please be patient with us, we are working on lots of things that relate either directly or indirectly to LocationCore, once we get into a solid Blockchain development process we will be updating on our development process via Medium / Our blog etc.
Please join us on telegram (t.me/locationcore), things are fairly quiet there at the moment but I am sure as everything ramps up it will start to get busy.
