If you’ve been patiently waiting for ReddCoin (RDD) to release their public Beta platform, unfortunately you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with this cryptocurrency, we’ve covered it a few times before – mainly because it’s a blockchain-based project that we think a lot of people would and could actually use. It’s one of those platforms that would make mass adoption for at least one type of cryptocurrency a realistic possibility.
What is ReddCoin (RDD), you ask? It’s essentially a way for social media users on multiple platforms (such as Twitter and Facebook) to be able to send their friends on those networks RDD tokens without any fees. It would be embedded into those platforms, so that sending people coins would be super easy.
If you are one of the people hoping to see how the beta tests of this platform work out, you will – sadly – have to wait around until July 8th. Why?
Well, there are some issues that have led the team to decide that the private beta release needs about an extra week – so they can fix some issues before the public beta launch can happen.
Here is what they say about it:
“Testing revealed that our back-end needs to be made more robust and secure to accommodate the load from anticipated users. It has also revealed that while ID registration on the blockchain may be succeeding, the extension itself is having difficulty showing the right information to users to enable that process. We need to resolve both of these issues, and some other minor ones, including some encountered with Reddit’s just-released new design before we can be comfortable with the ReddHead community at large using and relying on an extension that will contain real funds. It is critical to us that the extension be as solidly built and reliable as possible, and for that reason, we need a bit more time to make the required updates and changes.”
It is all discussed by the team in this Reddit post – so take a look if you are interested.
