Monthly Progress Report - April 2021

Bitcoin Cash Research promotes and operates under a standard of transparency towards the ecosystem. This report works in the direction of that principle. It details relevant aspects of the operation and welcomes any feedback that helps to fulfill the proposed vision.

I. Activity Highlights

  • General maintenance and database backups by @emi_dm.
  • Migration to Discourse 2.7.0.beta8 on development environment and test by @emi_dm.
  • Migration to Discourse 2.7.0.beta8 on production environment by @emi_dm.

II. Activity Lowlights

  • Discussions and research around the idea of offering a certain level of decentralization to this forum on hold by @emi_dm and @Leandrodimarco. This is due to the high degree of activity from other tasks and projects during the reference month. Progress is thought to continue asap.

III. Next Steps

Proposed actions under analysis and consideration.

  • Increase the number of moderators under an expected userbase expansion.
  • Progress in the platform’s decentralization and build the necessary resources to make the platform even more capture resistant.
  • Define a policy for the release of periodic backups while protecting users’ private information.
  • Define a policy for access to the server.
