Technical Updates for our blockchain-based marketplace beta 0.3

At BitBoost we’re always working hard to design a product that our users will enjoy. Our talented development team has made many improvements this summer and we will continue to innovate until we’re ready to bring our blockchain-based marketplace to the Etherium live blockchain in 2018. As our beta testing period is approaching fast, we’ve doubled our efforts to offer our users a positive first experience. Here are many of the technical updates we’ve implemented in recent weeks.
