Where we’re going
Cryptocurrencies are complicated, and it’s our mission to change that. The Nav Coin wallets are easy to use and have great built in privacy features.
Our upcoming projects continue on that journey of providing great software that does the heavy lifting so you don’t have to.
To simplify running a NAVTech node, we are looking to integrate Nav Coin and the Subchain into a single multi-chain wallet. This will make it easier for everyone to process anonymous transactions, and is the precursor to the next generation of the NAVTech system.
With the multi-chain wallet working, we will then begin to port the NAVTech scripts into the wallet itself. At this point we would also look at how we can open the cluster system up to being a trustless mesh network so anyone can easily participate and gain rewards.
Cold Staking Implementation
We are investigating ways to allow NAV held in cold storage to be used as a staking input. This will greatly increase the security of your funds as they stake, minimising the risk exposure of having large amounts of NAV in a hot wallet.
Nav Chain Prototype
With the R&D completed for the ADapp Platform we are moving this project onto its next phase which is a prototype of the platform used as a proof of concept and the backbone of NavTech 2.0.
Currently In Progress
Marketing Roadmap @ 75%
With the new additions to our marketing team we are focusing on our wider marketing strategy. The first step is to formalise a marketing roadmap and present our marketing plan.
NavTech Polymorph @ 60%
NAVTech Polymorph is a fusion of NAVTech’s Anon transactions and Changelly’s instant exchange. It will enable users to send any one of 80+ cryptocurrencies anonymously through the dual blockchain powered NAVTech anonymous transaction system.
Nav Pi 2.0 @ 25%
After the successful launch of NavPi, we are working towards streamlining the interface. This means a full redevelopment using Angular2 served by NodeJS. This also aims to improve the performance of the front end giving a smoother user experience.
Community Fund @ 20%
With the voting for the implementation of a Community Fund underway, we have started to work on the consensus changes necessary to implement the Community Fund if the network vote succeeds.
Mobile & Web Wallets
Anonymous DApps Planning
We are looking into the possibility of upgrading Nav Coin and the Subchain to implement smart contracts. The idea being this will enable people to build Anonymous Decentralized Apps (ADapps) on top of our existing dual blockchain system. This milestone for the feasibility phase of the project where we research Dapp platforms and frame up what ours will look like.
Rebuilding the Subchain
We have decided to halt the subchain rebuild and roll it up into the Nav Chain prototype scheduled to commence soon.
NavTech 1.2 will address the metadata inference of NavTech transactions when the system is running at low volume. We will be implementing multiple output addresses, variable fees, time delays and dummy transactions.
Nav Coin Core 4.0.4
This is an important update which includes all the updates necessary to be compatible with NavTech 1.2. Updating to this version is mandatory due to the major changes to how NavTech works
This is the software which the pre-built NavPi’s are shipping with from our store. This version still uses the same UI which was in 1.0.0 but the image has been rebuilt from the ground up with extra security features.
Copy of Pre Built NavPi's
We are working towards sourcing and supplying NAV branded NavPi units on the Nav Coin Store. These will ship with the image pre-loaded onto the memory card so all you will need to do is plug them in and send the coins.
We are reviewing and fully unit testing the NAVTech source code. First optimizing and testing the existing source and fixing some small bugs we have listed as issues on the github project
Nav Coin Core 4.0.0
We are rebuilding Nav Coin Core up to date with the Bitcoin 0.13 source. This will increase Nav Coin’s stability, capabilities and ability to integrate with other services. By updating to 0.13 we will get some great technical benefits including the capability to have a Nav Coin Insight API and Segregated Witness.
A low-energy Nav Coin staking solution based on the Raspberry-Pi platform. NAV’s highly anticipated web interface enabled staking unit, offers a more energy efficient way to earn Nav Coin rewards and participate in transaction verificaion.
We are redesigning the main Nav Coin website with the aim of giving a better experience to new and returning users. We have thoroughly mapped out the User Journey and hope this makes the site much easier to navigate and use.
The release of the new Navtech value-transfer system, was a key piece of the decentralization network implementation. The new architecture allows Navtech servers to operate in trusted clusters and form their own private mesh network of processing servers which anyone will be able to run and earn rewards from.
Anonymous Merchant Integration
Once we have finished the initial merchant gateway, we will integrate the merchant gateway with our anonymous network to allow for the anonymous purchasing of products.
Nav Coin has been added to Coin Payments merchant gateway system. This allows merchants to accept Nav Coin in their physical stores and also on their websites.
Rebuilding the Nav Coin Anonymous Tranasction System “Navtech” is a top priority for us. The redevelopment of the system allows for a smoother transition to a fully decentralised system.
Thin Client for Desktop
Our custom X13 Electrum server also enables us to build a thin client for desktop. This will be a great addition to the Nav Coin software suite and give people instant access to their Nav Coin without having to sync the entire block chain!
NAVTech Public Release
With the main block chain successfully hard forked, the network stabilised and the major exchanges successfully running on the new wallet we are able to move forward into the final stage of deployment. The double encrypted Navajo Anonymous network will be fully functional and open to the public from Monday 23rd of March 2015.
NAVTech Beta Test
The public beta test of our Nav Anonymous Transactions system will begin on the 1st of February 2015. It will run for two weeks at which point it will close and we will begin processing the beta results. During the testing phase there will be a bounty set for anyone who can successfully trace the transactions from origin to destination. The beta test will be unencrypted to help us with analysis and testing.
We will run a NAV faucet as well as the POS Wallet faucet. You will be able to register your wallet address with the faucet and be in the lottery to get sent free NAVs.
We have been added to the Cryptoid Block Explorer. The block explorer allows people to look up wallet addresses and see its public balance and transactions.
