today I want to inform you about a thing we worked on over the past 2 months.
We will launch a new backend for Bitrad.io & Bitstre.am
After launching Bitstre.am and a lot of traffic on this second website, we decided to completely rewrite our backend. Due to a lot of users and a lot of connections to our database, it was necessary to rewrite the whole system from the scratch and also our database structure. Our frontend will remain as you know it and hopefully like it. Our main DEV worked the last 2 month very hard to get this done and we are now ready for further growth of Bitrad.io, Bitstre.am and other websites and apps which will follow.
This step was more than necessary because we believe that Bitstre.am is the next step for us to grow further and a lot more then with the radio website alone. Bitstre.am is our new service for streaming Videos from Youtube and streaming games from Twitch. If you don't know it goes to Bitstre.am after we relaunched the website.
We did not make a lot of promotion for Bitstream because this step is necessary for further growth and we decided that it will also have a higher priority than for example the Android App and other things we work on. We think that streaming videos and e-sports will grow much more in the next few years and we will be a part of this growth.
To launch the new backend we have to import all transactions we did, all user accounts and a lot more data and have to be sure to make everything correct without losing data.
We have over 50 GB in our database and have to make sure that the new backend will run as it should. For you, all it is important to know that there will be a downtime of Bitrad.io and Bitstre.am for approximately 24 hours (We hope we get it done quicker than that). We are now ready for this step.
We will release it today. (NOW)
As a user of Bitrad.io & Bitstream.am you don’t see changes because we only update the backend of our website.
After this release, we will make a promo as you know it. 48 hours 3 Times Earrings for you all.
We have secured all DATA and we can Rollback if there are any Problems. No worries.
But there is one more thing:
The new frontend and backend are ready for multi-language.
We will start with: English, Russian, Dutch, French, Turkish and German.
More languages to come.
I want also thank Dwarrel for testing a lot and helping us to get it done. Thanks also to the users which helped us to translate the Website to other languages (WlanWerner, Ulric Dwarrel and other users)
This Release is a new step and the biggest thing we did since launching Bitrad.io & Bitstre.am.
I will Post annother announcement this month with Informations about things we also work at the Moment. (Whitepaper, Roadmap, Wallet Update, Wallet redesign and more)
Keep on Streaming
Uwe & the Bitrad.io TEAM
