Aphelion Weekly Updates March 2 2018

It's been a very exciting week here at Aphelion inching closer and closer to fulfilling on our mission and vision.  In this weeks announcements we will be sharing a proof of concept (PoC) that verifies demonstrations of on-chain exchanges that we've conducted on testnet as well as several additional exciting updates.

Aphelion Weekly Updates March 2 2018

Proof of Concept (PoC):

We've been playing around with different Nep5/NEO/GAS exchange scenarios in our devnet for some time now, which is forming the basis for the APH smart contract we will releasing on mainnet and integrating with the APH Wallet that ultimately will house the APH DEX.  As part of that development we have created various exchange scenarios on testnet, which are fully documented and verifiable.  This is our initial PoC demonstrating on-chain exchanges.   The next release will be in mainnet and integrated into an updated APH wallet opening up NEO/GAS/Nep5 trading to the world and redistributing APH to all holders in the process.

We invite the community to follow the documentation below and explore these ground breaking exchanges and early steps forming the basis of the APH DEX.

Website:

We are pleased to announce the website development is under way and we expect a live launch next week.  We are very exciting to share our fresh look representing the next phase of the Aphelion movement.  To accomodate users worldwide, the website and whitepaper will be available in English, Russian, Japanese, Korean and Chinese.

Below is a peak of our beautiful new design that mirrors our wallet and overall rebranding and color palette.  We are very happy with how it has turned out and hope you are too.

Wallet:

Wallet dev continues to break new ground and is on track for a release this month just ahead of the APH exchange listing.  We are aiming to be the sharpest wallet in the industry and can't wait to show the community what they have contributed to.  

NEO Nodes:

We'd planned on launching public seed servers for NEO nodes as a way to give back to the project and strengthen the blockchain and so when we read this invitation from CoZ 

https://www.reddit.com/r/NEO/comments/7zx7ur/public_call_for_projects_launching_in_neo/?st=je1wv7xt&sh=f807d62c

we thought it was great timing to proceed and so we are pleased to announce we're deploying 4 nodes today and they should be fully live at any moment as seed1.aphelion.org through seed4.aphelion.org.

Marketing:

We are launching a campaign of paid search, social media and remarketing right now with a solid daily budget aimed at crypto traders worldwide.  The image you see at the top of the post is one of the banners we are releasing into the wild as part of the campaigns.

We really appreciated the outpouring of participation in our content suggestion program and these 3 banners below came as a direct result of that program so thank you to all that participated.  We are deploying these right now in various shapes and sizes across multiple channels and geographies.

We absolutely love community involvement and we will be continuing in that spirit every step of the way.  Aphelion is the community and the community is Aphelion.

APH AirDrop Program:

We have been taking some flak from the cryptosphere in regards to our small community, but the fact of the matter is that we have hundreds more in our community than those that actually hold APH or participated in the ICO.  We are a small community because we were a small ICO.  A lot of these other ICOs that have 20k members also had whitelists that big and so that makes sense for them.  But regardless we know we need to grow our community and we want to do it organically.  We think this will happen as we continue to release tech but we also want it to happen faster and in advance of our actual initial listing and so we are pleased to  announce an official APH airdrop program aimed at increasing our telegram group by at least 10k over a few short weeks.  The details of the program will be announced next week in conjunction with our website update.

Exchange Listings:

We really really really wanted to reveal at least 1 exchange name/date today but we are not able to just yet.  We are still listing APH Q1 as promised but we are at the mercy of the exchanges and have to do things they way they ask.  With that being said, I expect an announcement next week with the listing happening shortly thereafter.  The market has been down a bit as of late so it isn't necessarily a bad thing that we've remained patient.  The plan was always to release the PoC, market, announce listing, drop new wallet & list and that sequence is exactly what is happening.

Aphelion DEX:

This is really all that matters and after the new wallet release and listing the next big step is the actual Aphelion DEX release which will be an updated version of the new wallet but with built in peer-to-peer trading capabilities for all NEO/GAS/Nep5 pairs.  This will come in Q2 (hopefully early/mid), which is right around the corner.  We know you are thinking about cross-chain and we are as well, in fact we've already completed the scope of work and all the documentation for the MVP.  We'll dive head first into this immediately following the initial DEX release and expect this release in Q3, potentially Q4 depending on a number of factors.

Community Questions/Weekly AMA:

How can we as investors contribute to marketing Aphelion?

Anyone can get out there on the forums, telegram channels, social media, etc  Just a simple:  Hey, have you guys heard about Aphelion and the things they are doing?" Or "Aphelion's awesome new NEO wallet just dropped" placed in the right channels can have a big impact.  We are also looking at recruiting local community managers to help with those efforts and so if anyone in the community has the skills and resources to be able to do this professionally and consistently, especially in foreign language group please reach out to us.

What servers will the off-chain data be stored on and by whom? And what is the incentive to run a server?

Right now we are hosting the servers and already have them in place.  We will be releasing all the server code as open source so they can be replicated by anyone anywhere.  And we will be asking the community to contribute in this regard similar to how the NEO community is doing it now.  The incentive is to contribute to a faster and more decentralized APH.  We'll put some further thought into how to expand this in a strategic way in advance of the DEX release.

Is Aphelion launching any video tutorials?

Yes, 100% definitely.

Can Telegram be integrated into APH?

This is a brilliant idea and we are looking into it.

Is there future marketing plan for after DEX release?

Absolutely, we launching pre-listing and wallet release marketing now.  Then another phase just before the actual DEX release.

That is it for this week and as always a huge thank you to the best community in all of crypto we love you you all (even the troublemakers) and can't wait to make you proud of what you have helped fund and shape.  

-Aphelion
