Dear community, we’re happy to share with you two new essential features added to our experimental frontend.
The first one is a new wallet redesigned from top to toe. We plan to gradually implement both the classic frontend’s and the wallet’s functionalities to offer you a single, comfortable interface for all important operations. The first addition to the basic functionalities is liquid token transfers enabled. Other wallet operations are coming soon.
The extended wallet became possible thanks to WhaleVault, a key manager able to keep keys to many neighbouring chains such as EOS, Hive, Steemit, or Blurt. The main advantage of WhaleVault over traditional login forms is higher security, because the user’s password is not exposed during the login. After setting it up once, the rest of the time you just relax and only put your username to login forms, letting the tool supply the key that is needed, where needed, and when needed.
Another improvement is a curator section with curation tools to help find posts worth sharing. We are testing more curation tools including a “Save button”. The magic button will make the post’s off-chain version that could be easily found, easily included in thematic best post collections, and augmented with any additional content and functionality you can think of, from polls to image galleries to product showcases with instant payment .
This functionality also makes a good foundation for the coming WordPress sync plugin we’re working on. It will enable importing wls posts into regular blogs while keeping visible the comments and shares made on our platform.
Your feedback is needed to fix inevitable bugs and navigate in the most effective way. Comments, ideas, and suggestions will be highly appreciated!
And this is only the beginning. Keep your eye on the news! Follow / befriend our account to get news and updates and visit the project’s website. The feature roadmap counts hundreds of improvements, and we are already working on many of them.
We believe that all conditions are present to expect the WLS user base and token growth. Don’t let yourself miss this opportunity. The upcoming events coupled with general industry growth are in favour of the Whaleshares project. Let’s seize this wonderful opportunity and work together to make our dream true, to bring to the world a different, vision-driven platform where real human values matter more than mere money. Friendship, mutual aid, personal and collective growth, community support, an opportunity to take part in something as huge as building together a censorship free, new-generation platform made by people, for people.
