Monthly Progress Report - July 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.
  • Ongoing discussions and research around the idea of offering a certain level of decentralization to this forum by @emi_dm and @Leandrodimarco. Analysis and tests continue, and to date, we are following two lines of thought: the creation of a new plugin or the reuse/fork of a Discourse official plugin upon which we can modify and build the specific solution. The conclusion will depend on the subsequent tests. Once the possible implementation analysis is done, it will be presented in this forum for feedback and consideration.
  • Renewal of email service by @Leandrodimarco.
  • Renewal of domain by @Leandrodimarco following @fast_badger initiative and donation.

  • Define a policy for access to the server.
