The Thursday Recap #8
A web version of Recap is coming, Bitfinex integration, and some industry news
Thu Nov 14 2019
Welcome to our latest Thursday Recap, our weekly update on the industry and what we’ve been up to here at Recap HQ. If you missed the previous instalment you can catch up here.
Recap is coming to the web!
Recap is currently a desktop application. This means users have to go through the process of downloading and installing the app, the annoyance of having to update, a disconnected signup and login flow, and they need to trust a third-party application on their PC or Mac. While this has some small benefits, it add too much pain and difficulty to using Recap.
We’ve managed to develop the same end-to-end encrypted approach in the browser. So in the coming weeks, in addition to the desktop application, you’ll be able to use Recap in the web. Any users who didn’t want to (or couldn’t) download and install an app will now be able to get all the benefits of Recap.
We’re making progress on our Bitfinex integration. It’s a difficult one but we’ll hopefully be able to share a release date soon.
Request an integration
We’re planning where to go next and so we would like to know which exchange integrations would be useful to you. Get in touch by email firstname.lastname@example.org or via social by replying to this tweet.
Europe may soon have it’s own version of Bitcoin
The Independent reports that the EU is considering developing its own cryptocurrency. China are getting in on the act too. After the rise of Bitcoin and other top cryptocurrencies, Governments are finally waking up to the potential of cryptocurrencies, but is it too late?
Samsung announce their Blockchain solution
Samsung believe that blockchain will be a revolutionary development. So much so that they’ve publicly announced an Ethereum-based blockchain platform that will be natively supported on their devices. Native support in mobile devices could be a big deal so it will be interesting to see what is built on the platform.
That wraps it up for this week, so please check back next Thursday for more Recap and crypto news and don't forget to keep an eye on our social media and join our Telegram group or leave a message via chat here on the website or in app.
