CRYPTO DEV DIGEST: Bitcoin Cash Node Fundraiser; Ripple DeFi “Band”; Kraken Cracks CoolWallet

TL;DR: Crypto Dev Digest (CDD) documents cryptocurrency development, highlighting the projects and persons working under the hood. Startup implementation Bitcoin Cash Node (BCHN) launches an April fundraiser. Ripple attempts to go DeFi. Kraken breaks CoolWallet; and so much more in this installment!

Bitcoin Cash Node Fundraiser

Bitcoin Cash Node (BCHN) announced its fundraiser for April 2020. “With this proposal,” the 26-page document explained, “we expect to gather the necessary resources not only to maintain code soundness and implement upgrades, with a focus on immediate ecosystem concerns, but also establish tools and infrastructure necessary to inspire confidence in Bitcoin Cash as a usable, promotable, reliable form of money.”

The team is determined to use Flipstarter for the campaign which, as with BCHN, was developed in direct response to the controversial Infrastructure Funding Plan for Bitcoin Cash (IFP). Both it and BCHN, however, have moved on from simply reactionaries and into full-fledged production mode, viable alternative mode. It’s one thing to complain, but quite another altogether to actually produce.

Bitcoin Cash Node – Flipstarter Proposal looks to raise slightly more than a quarter-million dollars, and a detailed line-item budget is laid out in nearly a dozen areas. For investors and BCH enthusiasts alike, the IFP has accomplished at least one positive: the bar for transparency has been upped, and BCHN shows the way. And with the recently announced Bitcoin ABC fundraiser and business plan, the community can avail itself of side-by-side comparisons.
