-Developer will deliver the updated code within the next two weeks

-Reverse Proxy configured and certs installed on App and RP server

-Our base code is now online, just finalizing some minor configurations and then we will start working on the software requirements documentation to cryptofy it. The codebase looks great, represents our brand well and has all the advanced features found in platforms such as UpWork with multi-milestone payments and hourly or firm fixed cost contracts. Once this platform is establish, we will force our devs to use our platform to bid on our work, we will be generating a fair amount of traffic ourselves.

VCPulse Market Analytics:

VCTrack (A component of VCPulse):
-Qedum has presented us with access to the code they have worked to date.
--FB/Google API account integration is completed
--Front page appears to be fairly completed
--Add coin appears to be fairly complete minus bulk entry options
--The system works now, you can add ETH but there are issues with multiple like wallets showing up on the front page and they havent gotten tokens ironed out yet.
--Just the basic framework is here, no charts or fancy stuff yet.

-Take a peek at http://vctrack.io

-Dev’s appear to be a little behind schedule but definitely on track to deliver a working product in a fairly timely fashion

-Site should be online and fully functional within the next 3 weeks

VCDepth (A component of VCPulse):
-Our Cudev Ukrainian development team is amazing! They ask all the right questions, they understand what we are telling them, most the time they understand what we didnt tell them and they are producing code at nearly an alarming rate. We anticipate having Cudev as an integral part of our development team for the foreseeable future.

-The dev team came back and asked for input, we provided 4 points we wanted them to adjust, 3 of the 4 are already knocked out.

-After a minor adjustment in the concatenation of global buy pressure and some minor adjustments in the top 3 stats, the initial site release is pretty much done other than the Admin panel.

-Take a peek: http://vcdepth.io (Note polling frequency and breadth of coins is low right now while under dev, stats update every hour at present)

VCHealth (A component of VCPulse):
-The VCHealth Software Requirement Specifications (SRS) went out for bid and is on upwork now. https://www.upwork.com/jobs/~019852d652fdb761c6

-We already have 22 developers express interest. Now that we have a favorable rating and have paid out some dollars, we are having more of the larger companies take interest. We have multiple million dollar revenue companies approaching us this round.

-We anticipate awarding this contract by next week



We are currently managing 5 development teams but we are going to use the additional responses from our VCHealth SRS to field our next big Dev team of which we will in turn over all the VCP2P MarketPlace sites over to. We have an array of tangible development progress that has occurred over the last week with 4 alpha sites online now. We have our final VCP2P platform base code online and the last VCPulse site out for bid. We have grown our team remarkably with some extremely top notch talent and character.

I am absolutely ecstatic to be on board. VantageCrypto is the solution that I was looking for to fill the voids in my life, both as a product and as a company. From the very minute Shawn and I talked for the first time, I could see that our passion for cyrpto was aligned. Upon hearing more about VC, I was hooked.

I'm glad to be on board, and I'm happy to state that I will be dedicating myself full-time to VantageCrypto.

My current focus lies on branding, to ensure that we have all of the brand materials ready and available prior to launch of each of the products of VC.

I'll be sure to provide further updates as we progress, but I wanted to take this time to properly introduce myself.
