SpiderDAO announces the successful completion of all Q1 2021 Roadmap targets.

April 10th 2021 SpiderDAO is today delighted to report the completion of the Q1 2021 Roadmap as set out in our white paper in December 2020.

Coming on the heels of the Discord TestNet and the Spider Pro Connect router firmware upgrade this last week, SpiderDAO are happy to report the completion of major Q1 2021milestones set out at the beginning of the project, namely:

  • DAO Launch:Polkadot Testnet
  • Deep Development of dVPN OpenWRT
  • Testnet of Spider dVPN
  • Native App Development on iOS
  • Android App Beta Release

DAO Launch:Polkadot Testnet

We launched our DAO back in January 2021 and ported it to the Polkadot test net for live testing. Although we experienced some teething problems, in the beginning, these were eventually solved and the result is a working version of our hardware DAO that will shortly be released to the public in a firmware upgrade to conduct their own testing. (Watch this space!)

Deep Development of dVPN OpenWRT

Our Devs are very experienced and specialize in OpenWRT as it forms the basis of our Pro Connect router firmware and has been involved in its development for the last 4 years. All dVPN development is undertaken on the Polkadot Testnet using this protocol and the results have been spectacular as witnessed in our recent Discord Testnet and firmware upgrade featuring our SPDR wallet and hardware DAO functionality.

Testnet of Spider dVPN

In the latter part of the Quarter, we launched both a Discord TestNet and a firmware upgrade to our router, both of which have elements of decentralized VPN interacting with the blockchain. Although in its infancy, we continue to progress the development of the protocol and plan to release further upgrades on a regular basis.

Native App Development on iOS

The iOS app development has progressed more slowly than anticipated due to the lack of suitable developers, however, we have recently engaged a team of very experienced developers who have been given the task of completing the iOS app in a very short time and we are confident of their abilities and commitment.

Android App Beta Release

We will shortly be launching our Beta release to the wider public for testing and we invite our users to “take it for a spin”. As a little teaser, here are a few screenshots from the app:

Anas Sayed, CTO of SpiderDAO commented on the Q1 resultsMy Development team has exceeded all expectations when it comes to the rollout of our project. The dedication, professionalism, and sheer hard work have shone through in the results we can all witness today”

Nathan Varty, CEO of SpiderDAO commentedIt’s been a highly successful quarter for the whole team and I am truly proud and delighted with our progress. In a crowded field of dubious projects, SpiderDAO stands out as a real-world, viable project with tangible products and services that will benefit the wider community”. He continued “ I want to reach out to our loyal supporters and investors and reassure them that we are on target to complete the project as promised and roll out a world-class product.”

About SpiderDAO

SpiderVPN provides a decentralized router-based VPN service for its users by using a dual-governance model which brings together hardware and software tools with on-chain elements. The team aims to build a new set of standards for Decentralized Autonomous Organizations to counteract the unfair distribution of voting power. Combining hardware safeguards and leveraging the Polkadot consensus mechanism, SpiderDAO establishes a whale-resistant mechanism while creating a highly scalable, interoperable, and stable governance system.
