Testnet 4 is now live, and you can begin testing the latest changes by updating your daemon to the latest master branch.
Quick Details: The HandyMiner CLI tool is out! If you’ve been itching to try mining with Handshake, you can now do so (Windows/Mac/and Linux, on both AMD and NVIDIA).
Next Meeting (TBD): As we get closer to the mainnet launch, these will form adhoc on a as-needed basis.
Alex Smith (HandyMiner): Miner needs to be tested on as many cards and platforms as possible. This is only the CLI release, the full release includes a GUI interface for Windows and Mac to simplify the process even more. McKie (me) will be building a guide for this on HandshakeAcademy.org once the revamped site is live that the Urkel team is working on.
HandyMiner Github (please star it :D): https://github.com/HandshakeAlliance/HandyMiner-CLI
Current Needs: Mark Tynes of Bcoin suggested xpub support so each new coinbase can be mined to a newly generated address. Alex is going to look into this.
Urkel Team: HandshakeAcademy.org update to be more refined and moving over resources to a cleaner new site. This is in preparation for the launch of mainnet. The Urkel team also completed a port of hStratum in Rust.
Current Needs: No needs at this time.
