24.March.2018: Regular Business Development Update

Post by shawn.gregg » Sat Mar 24, 2018 12:53 pm

VantageCrypto:

------------------------------------
-We changed our landing page website to vantagecrypto.com We also reconfigured all of our many supporting apps to run on the new name.

-We have re-branded our landing page and all of our internals services and starting to work some of our sites and services now.

-We filed for our new company name "VantageCrypto Services Group Inc" with the state of Texas and were denied due to what appears to be a investor adviser that works with a crypto hedgefund company name “"VANTAGE CRYPTO ASSETS LLC" albiet the co-founder has 12k followers on Twitter and established, our name request met the Texas requirement of being two names different. This scrutiny is likely due to Texas crack down on crytpo and bad actors doing things such as brand heisting the state feels our name is too similar for crypto and wont allow us to register it. We dont manage assets, we are not an asset company, this is like saying there cant be a diamond car sales and diamond car cleaners. We are working some potential addendum to our name and if need be we will register in a different state(we have options), we will retain VantageCrypto branding.

-Completed the first round draft of the full business plan, it is currently 80 pages long. Various members of the team are taking their turns working the document from here, we should have a polished product within the next couple of weeks.

-We are nearly done in some modifications to our back end infrastructure that will not only support infinite scalability and extensive availability, it will also kick off the development of our VCAPI product.

-Took advantage of name change to bring internal email services in house, building internal, sendmail integrated smtp servers allowing us to manage email for multiple domains on unified platform.

-Continue to scale out monitoring footprint, currently we have over 30 unique monitoring points throughout our landscape

-We have been evaluating the banking sector to identify the best bank to ensure safety of our fiat funds while also being in support of crypto transactions and crypto oriented business.

-Development of compliance framework underway

VCP2P MarketPlace:
Part of our business approach is to have extremely strong, agile and lean development teams working for us in parallel to produce much results fast. Finding a great dev team is not easy, they are not all the same. The VCP2P teams we have been using are on the low end of acceptable and certainly not the superstar teams we need and its seen daily when comparing them to our other developers. We are making changes to get VCP2P back in the fast lane by combining all 3 projects into a single developer with greater resources and capabilities but not so large that their processes and overhead impact our ability to deliver in a competitive market place. We believe we have an ideal dev team lined up to take over the projects and the array of features and fixes Grant has outlined on 2 of the 3 platforms.

VCREAL:

-We are wrapping up the last bit of development work with the current VCREAL devs and then will be preparing SRS documents for the initial work by our new devs

-The dev code will be put up on the main site sometime this week, its not great but it is crypto integrated… mostly.

-Continuing to research and develop first to market features


VCStay:
-We are wrapping up the last bit of development work with the current VCStay devs and then will be preparing SRS documents for the initial work by our new devs

-The dev code will be put up on the main site sometime this week, its not great but it is crypto integrated… mostly.

-Continuing to research and develop first to market features

VCFreeLance
-The software has been installed and all the initial bugs worked out, its online at vcfreelance.net. We have yet to do anything with it. We also need a PdM to help lead this project.


VCPulse Market Analytics:

VCTrack (A component of VCPulse):

-There were an array of issues on release from each individual wallet showing up on the home screen to totals not being right and most important, tokens not being tracked properly. We have worked extensively with the dev’s to outline all the issues and details.

-We almost have all of the issues worked out now, the initial release should come on line this week.

-We will have to integrate exchange API capabilities for the users in order to track their exchange holdings since exchanges move all coin to cold storage and use internal wallets for trades.



VCDepth (A component of VCPulse):

-Our Cudev Ukrainian development team is still amazing! The dev team wrapped up the control panel and the majority of the last of the work on VCDepth, its beta release is pretty much online now.

-We are currently tracking 72 coins over 287 markets on the 5 largest exchanges. This is producing about 600MB of data a day. On our next release we pick up all the major eastern exchanges and load up hundreds of coins. The throughput and storage requirements are real.

-We performed a simultaneous user test of 21000 users and the site held up like a champ

-Integrated Google Analytics



VCHealth (A component of VCPulse):

-We met and spoke with a large Russian firm twice and communicated back and forth with the other 3 bidders all the way up to the award of the contract last night.

-We spoke with Cudev, our dev team that can kick your dev teams ass and they felt comfortable working the VCDepth next release and VCHealth in parallel, this is handy since since we are using a lot of the same data.

-Work starts on Monday, delivery of fully working product in 90 day though knowing this team it may be less.


VCTools Crypto Toolbox

VCBlox (A component of VCTools):

-Prepared all the screen mockups and started the SRS. This will likely not go out for bid until we already have the data it needs available through an API interface.



--------------------

Roundup:

VCStay and VCREAL Alpha’s will be online this week.
