Programs, progress, and potential

July just flew by! It seems like we just wrote June’s update and we’re already back with July’s update. Read on to see what happened what happened in July and what the AirToken by Airfox team as in store for the future.

July timeline of activities

Beware the Bugs!

Deciding if the Bug Hunter Program was a success is difficult, as every bug identified is both positive and somewhat negative. It may be considered negative in the sense that we missed something along the way; but, the positive implications are so much more important. These results mean that the community believes in the project enough to want to help make it the best it can be.

After careful consideration of a plethora of candidates, we narrowed down the field to 12 notable individuals. This group was a diverse cross section of the Airfox community and included users of all Airfox platforms including the Airfox app, dApp, and Airfox website. Bug Hunters were given all the tools they needed to scour the Airfox ecosystem for bugs including hunting guidelines, submission processes, information on legal pitfalls and how to avoid them, and full support from the Airfox team 24/7.

The Bug Hunters got to work immediately. In fact, we had minor fixes being submitted the day the forms were opened. It would appear that the community was ready, willing, and able to help perfect the project before we even invited them to be Bug Hunters. Most of the bugs submitted were very minor and could be rectified with ease. Notably, no security or privacy issues have been identified to date.

With the amount of success we’re seeing with the current Bug Hunter program, Airfox has decided to extend the submission dates and invite a more Bug Hunters to the program. With the announcement of an iOS update in the near future, we can undoubtedly expect a new round of bug hunting on that platform. Stay tuned!

James’ s thoughts

Don’t miss Billy’s recap of this month’s Telegram AMA with CTO James Seibel. James spent an afternoon in the Telegram channel with the AIR community and answered the questions, comments, and concerns.

Looking forward

This month represents a new outlook for Airfox. Airfox is inviting the world to interact more openly and intimately with its platforms. Beyond engagement and visibility, this month also brought good news and updates from the technical engineering team at Airfox.

Most notably, this month introduced a new feature to the Airfox app: lending. A select group of qualified users in Brazil will now have the option to borrow with the help of their Airfox credit. This milestone represents an increase in financial credibility for Airfox not only in Brazil, but around the globe.

One of the most exciting announcements that CTO James Seibel and his team made this month was the introduction of a plan for iOS adoption.

In Brazil, a majority of people use non-iOS devices, so the use of the Android operating system made sense. However, by introducing an iOS app, Airfox is staging itself to expand to new audiences and users.

The month of July was exciting for the Airfox. New programs mean new opportunities for the community to get involved. New technology means new opportunities for those in need of safe and reliable financial services around the world. All together, July represented not only results, but potential. The team is preparing to grow the project into what its original vision intended: a paradigm shift in the way the world looks at financial services for all. With the right combination of teamwork, effort, skill, and refinement, Airfox is ready to enter August with a refreshed sense of potential.

Can’t wait ’til next month for an update? Make sure you join the official Airfox Telegram to stay up-to-date on all things Airfox. Don’t forget to vote for Victor Santos to present at SXSW! If you need help, here are instructions to vote.
