There hasn't been any newsletters in a while, let's give an update on the project.
RChain token, one of the main components of the dappy ecosystem is constantly improved and worked on. We are now at release 12.0.1, the NFT expiration is 100% coded and tested. This means that it's ready to receive the dappy name system, the dappy name system will be a NFT contract, with 12 months expiration, you'll have to renew during the last month (approximately).
The team is now composed of 4 people, Nicolas (part time business development), Jean-Christophe (business development) and Paul (Electron/NodeJS/Kubernetes development). The goal is to reach the maturity stage as soon as possible, and to be confident for the launch of the name system, and on the commercial side, for the dappy network recruitment opening.
We have begun contacting companies to discuss the dappy project, and eventually them joining as a dappy network member, we plan to build a proto-network with 2, 3 or 4 companies to start with. Expansion can go further in later stages of development.
We have begun chatting with cybersecurity researchers and hackers, the goal is to switch from a 1 person project, to a more collaborative / opened way of working and improving the product.
Launch can't be done now because RChain has not done the state reset, we have to wait for the state reset, and will probably launch soon after.

Dappy's goal is to build an ultra-trustworthy name system, and to expand the security features of current browsers in order to allow for critical industries to safely and easily distribute public web applications.
Many web services are adopting models based on subscriptions or recurring payments, today the NFT blockchain standards cannot be used to express subscriptions, they do not expire, neither do they need renewal. At dappy we are building a NFT as a susbscription system, that will allow web companies and services to propose subscriptions that are managed by a unified NFT standard on the RChain smart contract platform.
Dappy is a first of its kind ultra-secure web browser and name system. It is a no-DNS system that has been built with a decentralized and zero-trust approach from the start.
