This report covers December 19, 2020 to January 18, 2021. Main visible event during that period was the public release of the “My Bismuth Wallet” mobile application, but there is more ongoing 🙂
For way too long, Bismuth had no proper mobile wallet. One historical reason is that – despite being the fastest growing language – Python on mobile still is not mainstream. Sure, you can run a fully functional Tornado wallet on Android, but that’s not a 2 click install.

In October 2020 Ubuntu released a desktop version (20.10) specifically for the Raspberry Pi 4 arm64-based computer.

This article describes the process of how to set up a Bismuth node on a Raspberry Pi 4 running Ubuntu desktop version 20.10.

During the past months, most of the crypto sphere has gone Uniswap crazy. Uniswap, based upon ETH smart contracts and running on Ethereum chain only, is a DEX allowing any token to be listed and exchanged, with a fast growing ecosystem and derivatives.The usual “when moon” on many discords were then replaced by “when Uniswap”?
