Welcome to Credits Q&A Session! Thank you for being eager to keep up to date with everything happening at the Credits project. Here are the latest questions from our community.Q1 What is left of all this https://developers.credits.com/documentation/introduction?
A1 All the documents describing work with Credits products are still relevant and up to date. However, as you know we keep updating and improving both blockchain and the node. So we will be correcting these files with the relevant information after the executor is released for public use. The changes will relate to:
2. Node types are splitted to normal and trusted and full description to be added. Normal node is a node with the primary task to build a block in the blockchain. Normal nodes are not aiming to become trusted and do not participate in consensus. Such nodes, in addition to the main functions, can have an extended API for exchanging information with monitor or wallet applications. Trusted nodes are nodes that in addition to the normal node functioning carry the task of block’s validation. Trusted nodes of one round can be randomly chosen to become a writer. Writer status means that this node is responsible for sending to everyone in the consensus message about the round change. The writer is getting re-selected when it fails. So any trusted node could become the writer, and being writer doesn’t mean to have an outstanding position in the consensus, it mainly functions as other trusted nodes;
3. The ongoing development is also focused on the API’s new functioning. The new API description will also be updated in the documentation accordingly. The descriptions provided above are short explanations and we will be updating the documents with more detailed information on each of the changes made in the blockchain as soon as a new executor is launched.
Q5 Since the iOS version of the wallet is already announced. When will Credits really start marketing? And what will Credits do?
Q6 When will the marketing start?A 4,5,6 Thanks for these questions regarding the wallet marketing. We are taking time to receive all the possible feedback from the users for the next two-three weeks. We are also expecting new functions to be added to the wallet in this timeframe and want to receive the feedback on the app after new features are added. This new set of functionalities are currently in the internal testing phase and should be moved to the publicly available version of wallet very soon.
As soon as we are confident in a positive user experience, we will be launching a marketing campaign for the wallet. Marketing will be done inhouse, we are not planning to reach out for external help. However, if we realize the need for an external agent for marketing, we will arrange it.
A7 Yes, we will be arranging video material for the Credits wallet, please stay tuned.
A8 Implementing loyalty rewards in CS is within this year's Credits wallet roadmap. So, yes, a loyalty rewards programme will be added to the wallet during 2022. Adding new banking products is also in the roadmap for this year.
