Project Management Change

Equilibria is moving to an agile project management philosophy with 6-week sprints. Each sprint will have pre-defined tasks that various team members will be assigned. This will also allow the community to know exactly what is being worked on behind the scenes. A new Trello board focused on sprints will be created. The current Trello will still hold “long-term” or broad tasks. New team members start on Dec 1st.

Harrison will be on family vacation until Dec. 1st. Native side development will be slow until Dec 1st.

Team Structure Update

All new team members will be non-user-facing.

  • UI/UX Hire
  • Fullstack Hire
  • Pulling the trigger and training a C++ hire

Role breakdown

  • UI/UX: Create designs and seamless interactions for wallets and other sub-products.
  • Fullstack: Work on wallets (desktop, wallet, web) or other sub-products.
  • C++ hire: Will train on the Monero codebase. Their main objectives will be to help maintain, improve and innovate the native XEQ side.

Equilibria Wallet

With the recent and past issues with the current wallet, our new team members will be working on our own in-house light wallet. This wallet will hopefully be ported over to web and mobile. Here is a current roadmap on this:

  • Design wallet mockups
  • Create desktop application
  • Implement Equilibria backend (sending, receiving, staking)
  • User interaction feedback from the community
  • Fix user interactions from feedback
  • Maintain
  • Create a plan for web and mobile

The new Trello will be released shortly when all team members are onboarded and started.

Moving Forward

Over November the marketing content will continue to be expanded. More articles and guides to help the education process will be released, providing an easier way for users to learn about wallet installation, issues, and staking.

As we move closer to mainnet, we will be looking to implement and execute more items on the Trello marketing board, from paid advertising campaigns to influencers, as we strive to get more awareness and adoption for smart contracts utilizing our Equilibria ecosystem.
