Title: [ANN] SuperNET takes over MyNxt.info Hosting and Development
Post by: VanBreuk on November 01, 2015, 07:59:01 pm
Hello all,

The following update will be distributed through SuperNET channels. This is the first news release for the NxtForum community.




SuperNET to take over MyNxt hosting and development

From November, SuperNET will manage the MyNxt project, including the Block Explorer, Online Wallet and NxtAd service.

1 November 2015

SuperNET is to take over Nxt wallet and block explorer initiative, MyNxt.info, with immediate effect. The servers have already been migrated into the SuperNET infrastructure, and the lead development and operation are now in hands of Tosch and VanBreuk. Both have been involved in the Nxt community since its early days: Tosch as developer of php/js/python applications and VanBreuk as forum administrator and technician for several projects, including the Nxt Wiki and the Multigateway.        

Block Explorer

One of the greatest advantages of cryptocurrencies is that, while being available to anyone and offering a strong level of anonymity when used correctly, the blockchain remains fully transparent. Besides offering its Online Wallet and other tools, MyNxt provides a powerful overview of blockchain transactions on the Nxt network, and will do the same for other cryptocurrency networks in the future.

The MyNxt Block Explorer has been the most stable and reliable Transaction Explorer in the Nxt ecosystem for over a year. You can access it at https://www.mynxt.info/blockexplorer/

Nxt Wallet

MyNxt already does an outstanding job of bringing blockchain technology to new users. It offers a simple, secure and open-source Online Wallet. Registering requires only an email address and a password. The MyNxt Online Wallet makes accessing Nxt easy, and allows for a gradual learning curve for anyone who wants to start using cryptocurrencies. The wallet is available at https://wallet.mynxt.info/

Plug-ins

One of the most important features developed in the last year has been MyNxt’s plug-ins system, a straightforward way for users to activate additional tools in their online wallet. This plug-in architecture has huge potential but has not received yet the attention it deserves. This is why the new development plans for the service have a strong focus on MyNxt wallet plug-ins. SuperNET developments like the Multigateway, InstantDEX or Pangea Poker will be available as plug-ins.

Development roadmap

With the shift to SuperNET hosting and management, a new development roadmap has been created:

2015 November - December

2015 December - 2016 1st Quarter

2016 1st Quarter - 2nd Quarter

During this time, MyNxt will work to provide an easy accessible system for developers. You can learn more at https://www.mynxt.info/apidocs/

MyNxt wants to give developers good reasons to use the API, welcoming contributions and creating together the best documentation for both newcomers to the cryptocurrency world and advanced developers.




So we aim to do more than keeping a good service working: we want to make MyNxt an essential tool for everyone in the Nxt community, and other crypto communities active in SuperNET and beyond.

For this, we want now to invite everyone to bring on their feedback about other suggestions and improvements for MyNxt.

Since MyNxt now works under the SuperNET infrastructure, there will be new life for MyNxt in the Asset Exchange (https://www.mynxt.info/asset/2176003302076381931) (asset ID 2176003302076381931). James may post his part of the news soon :)

Thank you for posting :) I am looking forward to work with vanBreuk on this amazing project. I had been working together with abuelaue for a long time and think he has done astonishing work for MyNxt. The whole project has an immense potential and we hope to make it a reliable platform for users and developers from starters to more advanced crypto technology fans.

After three months being into development of MyNxt, it is time for an update from my side. I have put a lot of work into the Platform and hope you enjoy what is coming as much as I do. Some prospects of our Roadmap have been fulfilled, some might have changed or delayed but I think we are going a good path. The update to the new hard fork has majorly been smooth with a few bugs that have been fixed pretty quickly.

2015 November - December
  • Bring the Nxt Block Explorer more up-to-date with current Nxt developments. These include transparent forging, increased meta-data for the Asset Exchange, and explorer tools for the Monetary System, the Marketplace and the Alias system.
  • Promote coins community discussion to gather feedback for further improvement of the Block Explorer, and for continued development of MyNxt Tools such as the Charts, the Forging Calculator, NxtAd or the Alerter service.

We have done most things we planned to bring the Blockexplorer up-to-date. As you can see new Blocks and Transactions are now being updated in real time on the front page and on other mynxt pages. Transparent forging is also visible.
The front-page is in real time, displays new Transactions with detailed transaction information and a link to the asset or currency that is being used: https://www.mynxt.info
We have a new page with Meta-Data for the Asset Exchange: https://www.mynxt.info/assets/
For Shuffling:  https://www.mynxt.info/shuffles/

The Alerter page has been reworked to accept RS format and normal account format: https://www.mynxt.info/alerts.php
The forging calculator has also been updated: https://www.mynxt.info/forging_calculator.php

From our perspective what is missing are a page for Voting and a better overview for Data Cloud and the Marketplace. We are working on those and they should be available soon. If you are missing anything, feedback below is appreciated :)

2015 December - 2016 1st Quarter
  • Add powerful and reliable Blockchain Explorers for other active coins in the SuperNET community. First on the list is currently BitcoinDark.
  • Improve the MyNxt API to give developers easier access to a broad range of functionality.

Still, we are focussing on Nxt Blockexplorer. The BTCD Blockchain Explorer still seems to be down the road and has to be delayed.
We have done some improvements in the API but are working on new features that might enhance usability, also opening a (limited) Nxt API to non-users is being discussed. Nxt configuation files are making great progress to offer a good balanced version in the future.

Thanks for the update, Tosch.

In the wallet side, and besides all the due fork updates for both MyNxt nodes and plugins, we have very recently received access to the mobile wallet app code, which seemingly need some work. Temporarily the Android and iPhone apps are on hold and thus reflected in the wallet landing page, but we expect to be able to post proper updates soon.

Other than this, all the current features and plugins in the online wallet are in good shape.

Both the block explorer and the wallet servers are working, so it must be something in your end. There is cloudflare protection that might be triggered by certain proxies/VPNs if you use them, but that should result in a captcha verification, not in an error message.
