We are back at it again for the July 2018 monthly update. We hope you found our last update exciting and informative. We have some exciting news for you this month, so let’s get started!
Bitswift Ticker Change
Bitswift has received a ticker change on Wednesday June 20th on the Bittrex markets. The ticker was changed from SWIFT to BITS. News from Bittrex regarding this change can be found at the following link:
We have been notifying all 3rd parties supporting our market and blockchain statistics to update with the new ticker. Bittrex and Coinmarketcap have already completed the requested updates. We are confident that the ticker change will play a positive role in future marketing and promotion efforts. #BITS
Solar Powered Bitswift Bundlers
This is what Bitswift “mining”(bundling) may look like. Using a Raspberry Pi3 B+, solar panels, and an external battery to run a completely green Bitswift Blockchain node. Proof of Stake based Ardor child chains sure have their benefits.
It can be seen how the setup is so simple that even a group of garden gnomes can put it together. Garden gnomes use crypto don’t you know.

Comparing this fairly simple and efficient swift solar setup to the standard sha256 / scrypt setup that can be seen on Figure 3, it can be concluded that Bitswift is likely more energy efficient.
You can read more about solar powered Ardor nodes from our friend MrV’s post on medium:
We will be testing various hardware solar / battery / pi configurations in an effort to put together a Bitswift bundling kit which we are confident in. Perhaps you see this kit available on Bitswift.shop in a future update.
Bitswift.cash beta testing is still in progress and we are actively resolving bugs to try and release this gateway as soon as possible. As you all probably know by now, CASH token will be used as a digital currency on Bitswift blockchain and its purpose will be to create a gateway from CAD to Bitswift, making the ecosystem easily accessible. Currently we have successfully implemented Flexepin vouchers on the platform that can be used to purchase tokens.
Verified users will have the ability to claim up to 100 free CASH tokens daily on the Bitswift.cash platform. These CASH tokens may be traded between users on the decentralized asset exchange.
