A Look Into CCC Following Their Node Reward Proposals— What is the Community Developer Team Creating for NULS and Have You Voted?
We wanted to take a minute to let everyone know what our Code Craft Council developers are working on to help improve and expand the NULS ecosystem. As we come to the end of the critical vote for CCC node reward changes, we want the community to be able to make the most informed decisions about their vote. We hope this short synopsis can help provide useful information to aide in that purpose.
The importance of our team of CCC developers cannot be underestimated. All of the coding that goes into wallets, explorers, and even base blockchain architecture is a joint enterprise for our technical core team and CCC developers.
Because NULS is a truly open-sourced, community-driven project, it will become even more important in the years ahead of us to celebrate and support our CCC developers for their contributions. Together, we continue in our efforts to collectively grow our team of CCC members. The current node reward proposal vote is a part of the effort to support and commend their contributions. Please show your acknowledgement of the value of their work by participating in the vote and helping to determine the future of NULS community technical development.
We start with our celebrated CCC member — Moshe Malawach. Most of you already know him from the array of contributions he has provided to NULS, since one of his first creations — the nuls.world block explorer. Moshe’s explorer was extremely useful during the main net launch, while the official explorer still needed some work. As our core technical team worked around the clock to be sure the main net launch went as planned, nuls.world provided all of the useful network information and data to monitor blocks, nodes, consensus, and rewards.
Our community remains grateful to Moshe, and since mainnet he has added a NULS dApp through nuls.social, (which now has a blogging feature nuls.space) a community forum (nuls.community), and even a light wallet which also features the ability to vote and leave commentary. Moshe has also been instrumental in helping to progress our Ledger integration and will be completing its final stage of development in March.
Moshe attended the BitFwd hackathon in Sydney, Australia where he provided a basic software development kit for new developers to start building on NULS. His most recent contribution is Nytro, a desktop light wallet completed in January and currently going through the process of debugging. To help with language translation for documentation, or give feedback with debugging, you can find the desktop light wallet here: https://github.com/CCC-NULS/nytro-wallet/releases
Moshe is always active in the community and continues to help and support non-technical community members in the West. He aides in the understanding of various technical challenges, and applications or features and continually improves his products based on user feedback. Through this process he is always coming up with new tools for the community to use — blogging on the blockchain, a social dApp, wallets, SDKs, Ledger integration, and a block explorer — Moshe is the jack of all blockchain trades.

This renowned member of CCC is the author and inventor of NULStar, a framework for the NULS 2.0 design based on microservices systems. The construction of this underlying framework brings enourmous value to NULS and to the blockchain industry at large. To learn more about the innovative NULStar design, the basis for NULS 2.0, start here.
NULStar allows developers to build on NULS independently by constructing modules in any coding language. These modules are then collected into a repository. We think of the repository as a store which allows businesses to shop for features they want for their blockchain. Businesses can download the modules they need, add their own, or improve existing modules. In the future, Chain Factory will allow businesses to integrate any new module into their own customized blockchain immediately.
This versatility in modular design creates an easy development experience. The flexibility for both developers and businesses significantly reduces the developmental threshold and cost, and sets NULS apart as a technological leader by providing the underlying framework that companies like Netflix, Alibaba and Amazon already utilize. With the addition of Berzecks design, this valuable underlying framework will can be customized specifically for the blockchain industry.
The entire architecture of 2.0 will be built on top of this brilliant framework and will allow NULS to shine as a surviving project, and a thriving one that drives innovation in the sector continuously. The alpha release of NULStar is scheduled for the end of this month.
Berzeck has also helped to bring more CCC members to NULS. In January, Ray was voted in under the tutelage of Berzeck and has already begun to help in the construction of 2.0 components. Now, Berzeck has taken on another potential candidate, and continuously guides them through the initial stages of becoming a CCC member.
Even though he is busy with NULStar and 2.0, Berzeck also commits himself to growing CCC while still meeting his deadlines. Assembling a team this way allows for faster production of 2.0 and brings us closer to Chain Factory. For this reason Berzeck is an indispensable asset to the team and community. Through all of his leadership, dedication and endurance, the production and development environment of NULS continues to mature.

Josh has helped to create the framework for the governance model of the Code Craft Council and has contributed to documentation libraries for NULS. For community members like myself who are not developers, its important to understand the critical role documentation plays in ongoing development as the starting point for any developer to begin to work with NULS. In addition to documentation, Josh has also been responsible for creating proposals and handling administrative tasks.
Recently, Josh has taken on the development of the new NULS website. This is no easy task, since blockchain presents a number of challenges unique to the process. A successful website for a global blockchain project isn’t just nice to look at, or intuitive and easy to use. Several factors are involved which most users never consider; security for wallet downloads, content management in multiple languages for different markets, maintenance, presentation, portals and pages for documentation, other developer tools, targeting sectors of users as investors, businesses, or developers, search engine optimization, speed and performance, etc. The website is still in the early stages of design.

Angellilou created the Nuls.io bot to monitor node and consensus actions. The bot is used by all of the node operators in the community and helps to preserve the network by notifying them of yellow cards, lost stakers, new stakers, and credit upgrades and downgrades for their nodes. The user-friendly bot is easily added to Telegram chats and channels. Check out: @NulsIoBot on Telegram.

Claudio is our UI/UX designer who builds the interfaces for wallets, websites, dApps, etc. and provides the basis for the user experience with the display and design of buttons, icons, features, color schemes, images, wire frames, for wallets, dApps, websites, etc. Claudio’s work determines how content will be displayed and accessed. In October, he joined CCC after designing the interface for Moshe’s first light wallet.
Now that Claudio has completed the design for Moshe’s new Nytro desktop light wallet, he has started work on the new website. Once that is complete, he will begin work on the mobile wallet design, which is being developed by the potential upcoming CCC candidate, Tudor. The sneak peek of the new website design will be presented soon, and will necessitate some feedback from the community. Claudio has a lot of design work lined up in the near future and his work continues to be in high demand by other CCC developers.

Naveen is a CCC member working on the 2.0 architecture by helping to complete the Event Bus Module. This module sets up other modules to perform actions and delegate tasks to selective modules in the system. Naveen joined CCC in November and has shown the dedication and work ethic that helps to set a standard of production, which allows the NULS ecosystem to grow faster and expand over time.
Naveen attended the Singapore Blockchain Developers Event and presented to a group of aspiring blockchain developers and continues to work on NULS 2.0 components.
