Spent much of this week visiting family and traveling. Managed to squeeze a few things in still.
First, we had a Learning Bitcoin & Design call on Tuesday. Usually Stephen hosts these, but I hosted this one as it’s a topic I care about a lot - Open Design. We had a really good conversation and it’s clear that the term is very broad and means many things to many people. Hopefully we can, over time with more exchange, create a common understanding around both what it means in the bigger sense, and also how to practice it day-to-day.

Also spent a bit of time mocking-up explorer screens for the Bitcoin Core App. The first version of the app will focus on running a node and didn’t offer much functionality beyond that. Including a block explorer will make it more useful for developers, and casual users who want to check in on the status of a transaction. Next week, I’ll try to see if we can put together a good plan for the V1 and V2 releases and getting the project documentation (on the design side) up to par.

Another small success this week was that BlueWallet merged a PR to include recovery phrase import in multiple languages (10 in total now). Time to start chatting with a few other wallets about this feature, so it hopefully at some point it becomes a default (guide issue).
There’s an endless list of documents, issue and PRs to review next week, should be fun. Until then, have a good weekend.
Did you enjoy this issue? Yes No
