Dear Red Pulse Phoenix and APEX Network Community,

Many thanks for your patience over the last two weeks. We are excited to announce the logistics of the merger of the Red Pulse Phoenix and APEX Network token economies, infrastructure, project teams, and community. For background, please see previous announcements:

CPX:PHX swap ratio and conversion to PHB

Per the announcements, current CPX token holders will be airdropped 2.5 PHX for every 1 CPX that they hold. This PHX (NEP-5 token on NEO blockchain) can either be held in its current state, or can be converted to PHB (BEP-2 on…

Dear APEX Network community and partners,

After months of meticulous planning and discussion, APEX Network and Red Pulse Phoenix have made a calculated decision to take our projects, platforms, and ecosystems to the next stage through a merger that will create a comprehensive enterprise data blockchain platform. The merger will create a larger, more powerful infrastructure and ecosystem, effectively leveraging the best resources both projects have to offer (technology, platforms, token economies, token liquidity, human talent, community, and marketing).

The combined entity will become Phoenix Global, and CPX token holders will be granted PHB (BEP-2) tokens at a ratio calculated…

Below you will find an overview of development tasks performed over the last two weeks:

Week 38 — tasks completed

  • Reviewed desktop wallet source code and design documents to facilitate integration with ledger app.
  • Created specifications for numerical precision model — enhancements to instructions for handling of calculations, rounding, and comparisons.
  • Implemented event listening and optimised bandwidth for communication via blockchain since APEX Federated Learning can only be conducted through blockchain.

Week 39 — tasks competed

  • Completed approximately 70% of the work on Ledger wallet integration.

The CPX buyback program (Phase 1) has just commenced as of August 30, 2020 — we have not released much details as the plan and strategy is still in the process of optimization and refinement. However, we now feel that we are able to share more concrete plans for the buyback.

Buyback channels

  • Exchanges [Primary, will be used for the long term]
  • Private sale investors (OTC) [Secondary, will be used initially for batch trades]

Structure

APEX Network Core Development

A good portion of the buyback allocation will go to the team for long-term incentives, options, and/or investment. This portion includes Jimmy’s…

Another two weeks have passed, and we are happy to share the latest aspects of our blockchain related progress:

Week 34 — tasks completed

  • We have constructed the APEX Federated Learning register module using Vyber (contract language like Python). This register module is used with AFL’s to aid the data requestor in searching for relevant data providers and verifying their identity
  • Implemented the encryption module of the APEX Desktop Client
  • We also refactored the interaction logic of the light node mode and MongoDB to increase fault tolerance, increasing stability and sustained performance.

Week 35 — tasks completed

  • This week we continued with the refactoring of the communication between the light…
