We need better translations.
Our wallet is only half translated, please help improve it:
- join github.com and fork byteball project https://github.com/byteball/byteball
- edit the relevant language file at https://github.com/byteball/byteball/tree/master/i18n/po.  You can use any text editor or Poedit, which is a specialized very convenient tool.  If you translate only part of the strings, no problem, the wallet will still become better than before.
- submit a pull request


I recently updated the strings, now the .po files include the strings that describe recently added functions (bound payments, smart contracts, etc).

Version 1.8.0 released: https://github.com/byteball/byteball/releases


In this release:


- Option to save chat history.  It is done in the most privacy-centric way: chat history is saved only if both parties agree, and the setting can be changed in the middle of the conversation.  If at least one of the parties doesn't want the history to be saved, it is discarded when the app is closed (of course it can still be saved manually by copying and pasting).





Push notifications for chats / received payments on Android.  What's important, even alternative hubs can send push notifications, which makes us even better decentralized than Signal.  Alternative hub operators, please follow instructions at https://github.com/byteball/byteball-hub#push-notifications-for-android to enable push for your clients.





-  Ability to remove chat correspondents unless they are part of a multisig address or smart contract (thanks @vakar!)


-  Improved French and Portuguese translations


- Fixed a validation bug that caused crashes while syncing for many users.


Because of the above bugfix, upgrade is mandatory for all full clients.


I am happy to say that 2 of 5 above items were contributed by community members.

Byteball Grants Program
Today we are launching Byteball Grants Program. We’ll pay for work that improves the ecosystem. We want the contributors to both come up with new ideas and realize them.

Similar programs have worked or are still working within other projects such as Dash and Ethereum and proved their success, e.g. Casper and MetaMask came out of Ethereum DEVgrants program.

The grants will be paid from our Community Fund which is funded by donations and undistributed blackbytes.

The process of awarding the grants will be as public and transparent as possible. Below are the rules, they might be amended in the future and evolve as we gain experience. If you have any ideas how to make the platform better and ready to do it yourself or with your team, feel free to apply.

Byteball, a rather recent virtual currency, has been popping up everywhere on the web and in transactions, and the question remains – what is Byteball and how is it different from other cryptocurrencies?
