STRAKS 7 for 7: Edition 4

Welcome to the Fourth edition of the STRAKS 7 for 7.

For those new to the STRAKS 7 for 7 we are using this update as a platform for keeping relevant topics easily accessible that will serve to brief new community members of key STRAKS information instantly and to inform and maintain dialogue with our dedicated and passionate existing follower base.

Note that key announcements in relation to the project will continue be made ad-hoc and via relevant media channels.

Interesting STRAKS FACT!
Since last week, there are 2,180 new STRAKS Addresses! and 5 new Masternodes!

STRAKS 7 for 7 Weekly Recap

This last week Kasper let us know that his other obligations and responsibilities have increased to the point that he can no longer dedicate the time to the STRAKS project that he had hoped. We wish him well, and are glad he intends to remain in the community as an avid supporter of the STRAKS project. Due to the change in the team we are re-evaluating STRAKS Vote, while the development teams wrap up current projects. We will assign additional resources, release an enhanced road-map for STRAKS Vote, and a re-branding of the STRAKSVote project.

Swapotron is Live!
To get started start a conversation with Swapotron, and type help for instructions on how to sign a message to verify your swap address. Once you have verified you are the owner of your swap address you will be able to check your swap balance. Additional features will be released soon.

STRAKS Translation Platform

The STRAKS Translation Platform was slated to be finished last week! However, an unforeseen delay has caused this to slip by just a few more days. The custom translation platform will allow community members to contribute to our ongoing efforts to localize the STRAKS Project while simplifying the bounty rewards associated with the translations. All the features have been completed, and the platform is going through the first round of functionality testing. The Bounty Rewards for ongoing translations are being finalized and will be announced when the platform is completed.
