Consortium unveils Tiananmen Square Commemorative note
A new One CloudCoin Note image has been released to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre , June 4, 1989.

Weeks of student-led protests culminated in the dramatic confrontation when a lone student, dubbed 'Tank Man,' blocked a column of Chinese tanks exiting Tianamen toward Chang'an Avenue, where much of the oppression and violence actually took place. Up to 10,000 protesters were killed by some accounts during violent crackdowns on protests in Beijing and other cities.

'Tank Man' was depicted on the very first One CloudCoin note, and this week, Consortium artist Chris Montgomery released the 30th Anniversary Commemorative edition.

CloudCoin codes are often embedded in images so that they look like traditional money, but can be stored in many other forms of digital media, including stack files or audio clips.

New software impresses testers
Programming on the 'advanced client' is nearly complete. Tests on multiple platforms (PC, Mac, Linux) have been positive.

Two key elements remain under development: a Change Server and adjustments to the Trusted Transfer protocols.

The Change Server will allow users to convert larger CloudCoin notes into many smaller ones, such as breaking a 250-coin note into 250 one-coin notes. This is important for CloudCoins for smart contracts and utility tokens. Trusted Transfer lets users quickly, securely and anonymously trade coins and is essential to exchanges, merchant applications and gateways to other RAIDA applications beyond CloudCoin.

Artistic refinements are also still in the works on colors, fonts and proportions. How-to-videos and guidebooks for the new software are under development.

Lightning speed on fixes

Sean Worthington was able to perform fix operations on 8,400 notes (2 million coins) in 4.3 minutes, which could have taken most of a day using older software.
"I am sure we can even get it faster once we have all the RAIDA working with multi-fix. But this is a exponential improvement!" Sean said.
Other features and new functionality

  • Enhanced UI/UX with similar look and user-experience across platforms (Windows, Android, Mac, etc.).
  • Optimized efficiency that reduces measured CPU usage to 0%
  • A vault to eliminate any possibility of theft
  • Ability to automatically recover coins by email
  • Allowing users to send CloudCoins to each other quickly and safely through Trusted Transfer
  • Easily make change/split notes
  • Support for collectibles, a decentralized exchange and ATM functionality
  • Support for merchant services and game portals
  • Multi-fix functionality that can fix thousands of fracked coins within seconds
  • Multi-language support/localization
Referral Program

A referral program will be part of the launch of the final software version. Plans include incentives for referring friends, for downloading the software and for correctly answering quiz questions about its functions and features. Tens of thousands of CloudCoins will potentially be given away, so stay tuned for more information about how you can join in to spread the word.

Naming Contest

The working title for the software has been "advanced client," but it still doesn't have an official name. Past versions have included Founders Edition & Consumers Edition.

Plans for new RAIDA-friendly exchanges announced

Software release ahead of schedule
The beta version of the CloudCoin 'advanced client' software will be delivered ahead of schedule and testing on some elements has already begun.

Development on the LostCoin Recovery Server is now complete, allowing people with lost coins to recover them by email after 24 months. Development is also being completed on a recover-by-email service that embeds a hash of their email address in each authenticity number so lost coins can be recovered without waiting 24 months and without filing a lost coin report.

Programmers are still working on backup elements and list serials. Artists are hard at work, too, to make the look and feel of the new program even better. The testing team, meanwhile, has prepared a form for volunteer testers (thanks to all the readers who volunteered last week!) to report feedback.

The latest software versions incorporate several features and new functionality, including:

  • Enhanced UI/UX with similar look and user-experience across platforms (Windows, Android, Mac, etc.).
  • Optimized efficiency that reduces measured CPU usage to 0%
  • A vault to eliminate any possibility of theft
  • Ability to automatically recover coins by email
  • Allowing users to send CloudCoins to each other quickly and safely through Trusted Transfer
  • Easily make change/split notes
  • Support for collectibles, a decentralized exchange and ATM functionality
  • Support for merchant services and game portals
  • Multi-fix functionality that can fix hundreds of fracked coins within seconds
  • Multi-language support/localization

May the RAIDA be with you!
Tomorrow May 25 is the 42nd anniversary of the first showing of Star Wars(aka A New Hope ) in 1977, showcasing an upstart band of rebels' heroic battle to bring down an oppressive, evil tyranny thus restoring hope, peace and freedom to the galaxy.

That sounds a lot like the CloudCoin Consortium!
Sean Worthington created CloudCoin to give everyone more personal freedom and privacy while overthrowing the oppressive existing monetary model.

And RAIDA is "the Force" that the Consortium's Jedi Knights will use to fight this epic battle against the Empire of obsolete, inefficient and unjust monetary systems.
RAIDA and CloudCoin allow a means of storing and exchanging value that's completely private, totally secure, fast, environmentally friendly and eliminates the cost and friction of needless intermediaries.

CloudCoins are light sabres that empowers everyone to be their own bank, their own investment manager and their own free person.
