STRAKS 7 for 7: Edition 6

Welcome to the Sixth edition of the STRAKS 7 for 7.

STRAKS 7 for 7 Weekly Recap

The previous week we released details on STRAKS Incubator, the response to the project details, and the ideas proposed within were received with a very positive response! We look forward to sharing progress and details as we progress to our Beta test, and release date.

We have posted further details on https://straks.tech/insight/
the Project outline is here: https://straks.co/t/project-straks-incubator/468
Review the Roadmap here: https://straks.co/t/roadmap-straks-incubator/471

We didn’t have any releases in the last week. This is to be expected, we do have a number of releases planned within the next two weeks, some are simple gui and functional updates to the wallets, the other releases slated in the next week or so are more substantial. Make sure you have your notifications turned on so you receive all the updates related to progress on the various STRAKS components.

The STRAKS Translator project has been completed and here is a screenshot of the custom translation program that will ensure we can reach the widest audience possible.

A more detailed write-up of the features, and how to use the platform will be published the middle of this week.

That about wraps up the last week. Thanks for taking the time to read our weekly recap. As indicated in the previous editions, some weeks will have more things to review than others, this week is one of the quieter weeks. Rest assured there are plenty of announcements coming over the next few weeks.
