The BitcoinPlus Network

BitcoinPlus operates on a purely peer-to-peer network, "The XBC Project" and the developers of BitcoinPlus have no power to disable the network or force changes on the network unless those changes are accepted by participants of the network. BitcoinPlus is not a business owned by anyone, it is an autonomous P2P network which will continue to operate on a global scale with or without "The XBC Project", dependent on active usage and global consensus among the entire XBC community.

Bitcoin Competitor

The XBC Project sees a future where multiple Digital Tokens will co-exist. Each serving a particular purpose. Each with their own strengths and weakness's.   BitcoinPlus is currently faster (10x faster block times) than Bitcoin. BitcoinPlus currently also has inbuilt TOR. The XBC Project are always looking at current trends especially those geared towards greated security and efficiency.

Community Driven

The XBC Project will always be guided by the XBC Community. The feelings of the XBC Community will be gauged using various methods including but not limited to the Roadmap Poll on this website, Bitcointalk Announcement Thread, Private Messages and Contact Form Emails. 

Sustainable

The XBC Project is funded by the Sustainability Plan. This provides The XBC Project with funds to Support the XBC Network for many years to come.

Priorities

During the first part of 2017 the XBC Project's main priority was increasing User Adoption. In June 2017 - The XBC Project hired Bushtar (Lead Developer of Feathercoin) to start developing the XBC Wallet. Bushtar is currently working on adding Segwit and CSV to BitcoinPlus. Running alongside Wallet Development The XBC Project will continue to increase User Awareness via –

  • Frequent updates to the Bitcointalk Forum Thread
  • Frequent Website Updates – Blog Posts, Coin Specs etc
  • Frequent Social Media Updates – Facebook and Twitter
  • Frequent Wallet Updates for all Platforms – Windows, Linux, IOS, Android etc
  • Marketing Campaigns – Paid and non paid – Articles, Banners etc
  • Getting XBC on more Exchanges
  • Getting XBC accepted by more merchants on Coinpayments and Cointopay

Time Frames

What The XBC Project can achieve is entirely dependable on the XBC Price as the funds from the Sustainability Plan are received in XBC. There is no guarantee of a future XBC Price and the XBC Project will not gamble on the future XBC Price and over commit or over spend. There is therefore no guarantees of what can be achieved and in what time frame. 

That said - The XBC Project are aiming for Segwit and CSV implementation in the first quarter of 2018. (Q1). Once that is released The BitcoinPlus Project will re-assess what is next on the agenda. Payment Channels and Lightning Networks are all likely to be considered. 

Roadmap Update - 2018 - Q1 has been and passed. The initial road map date in hindsight was too optimistic for this mammoth wallet upgrade. The Current anticipated date for Segwit Activation on XBC is August. The wallet is nearly complete and is currently undergoing extensive testing and auditing.
