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

STRAKS 7 for 7 Weekly Recap

This last week we annnounced the addition of another Web Developer to the Team. Please join us in welcoming Jeckziel He has extensive experience in web development, with a strong background in PHP and Javascript. He will be focusing on the STRAKS Marketplace a key road map project that is slated to be released this year.

We would also like to remind our community to be extra cautious when seeking support on setting up masternodes, and troubleshooting STRAKS wallet issues. If a member of the team requests your Private Keys or logs, in order to help troubleshoot your issue, we urge you to take extra steps to ensure that you are actually interacting with a member of the team, especially if the communication is taking place in a Direct Message in the Discord Server. Certain commands when ran against the STRAKS wallet can expose your private key information and put your funds at risk. We will post a guide on how you can validate that you are commmunicating with a member of the team, when working with sensitive data, using in the near future.
