August was a fruitful month. Decentralised exchanges such as 0x and Kyber.network rose to the spotlights and markets recovered consistently from June-July price drops. For Paratii, it’s been time to expand the team, accelerate development and put a lot of new material online. There’s a public version of our blueprint out, and contributions are actively sought. You can find more lively conversation in our Gitter room and follow development real time in Github.

Development status & Team updates
🔧 Our video player prototype now transacts ETH and PTI on a testnet, and an early iteration of pay-per-view is implemented. Streaming over IPFS is being improved, with promising performance being achieved via modified gateways. Some serious issues are to be resolved in js-ipfs, but collaboration with other open source contributors around the world is already bearing fruits in related public repositories.
🇪🇬 Yahya, an Egyptian peer to peer software engineer, is the newest arrival on the team (which now spawns 3 continents 🌎).
📜 Paratii’s Blueprint v0.2 is out on Github, outlining our business case, current tech stack, basic incentive structures and future plans.
