On The Brink

The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you’ve gotta put up with the rain. — Dolly Parton

Greetings fellow ECC community members. First of all, we hope everyone has had a safe and happy holiday season, and you were able to spend time with family and friends. 2020 has been a year many of us would rather forget, but hopefully life will get back to relative normalcy a few months into 2021. It’s been a little while since our last update, and there is a lot of news to share. Let’s dive in!

Dev Update


We recently posted a preview of “ecchat” — an ECC based messaging app presented with an IRC style UI. You can check it out here.

So what’s next with Messaging? Have a look at the roadmap below:

1 . Chat (complete in dev environment)

Other Development

The dev team is also working on a decentralized SPV implementation of a wallet, which will eventually utilize messaging. The team is also creating a Dart (programming language developed by google) version of Eccoin-js. This will enable easy integration of a desktop client for messaging. Dart should also be a big improvement over JavaScript as far as long term maintenance is concerned. Due to decentralization of messaging there are still a few hurdles to overcome in regards to notifications on SPV wallets.

Marketing Update

Ultimately, the bulk of the marketing is currently being done by community members and through word of mouth. @Wim and others are holding off for a while until a viable product has been demonstrated as being usable by the masses. That being said, they are getting prepared for when the moment comes. There were lots of lessons learned from 2018, when marketing (and personal) funds were spent on videos, etc., for services that never came to fruition such as ANS.


Please note that ECC is no longer being traded on Txbit. Holders have until January 12th to remove your ECC from the exchange or else you risk losing them. If you are an unverified user, you are limited to removing 2.2 million ECC per 24 hour period.
