Suggestions & Proposals

Jochem Herber, an Elastos Orchard team member, created a Suggestion on September 4, 2019. He seeks a small budget to allow International Creative Business students to use DMA’s E-Commerce Dapp “Uptick” in the real world.

With so many blockchain projects seeking to penetrate the music industry, the fastest movers with the strongest marketing are set to win the race. Jochem Herber, member of Elastos Orchard, has raised a Suggestion that could significantly expand Elastos’ exposure to important industry leaders.

CR Terminology

A minimum viable product (MVP) is a development technique in which a new product or website is developed with sufficient features to satisfy early adopters.

Usually, a developer requires a suite of code and specific instructions in order to start building an app on a mobile phone or computer. These resources are contained in an SDK or “Software Development Kit”.

 

Another tremendous two weeks of Cyber Republic and Elastos events!
