After thorough testing of a non-official Alpha build for more than 6 weeks, MVP of a working Particl decentralized marketplace is rolling out. The launch is scheduled for May 31. The latest tested and proven stable build is 1016/7. The 2 issues concerning decimals not showing up in checkout process and multiple items in checkout caused problems when placing the order are both fixed.

Alpha build will be released on Particl Github page. The build is meant for the testnet only. As bugfixes, security patches, governance features and privacy enhancements come along the testing process, users will be able to download the client, create a store, post some items for sale and initiate the trade.

Particl is an open-source and decentralized privacy platform built on the blockchain specifically designed to work with any cryptocurrency. The mission of the project is to foster a new decentralized private and democratic economy supported by its platform and native currency. At the moment of publication, Particl market parameters are as follows:

Authorities to Study Bankrupt QuadrigaCX

Canada Revenue Agency sent a request for access to the tax info from Oct. 1 2015 to Sep. 30, 2018

The Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) intends to examine corporate declarations that ceased to exist as a result of the bankruptcy of the QuadrigaCX bitcoin exchange, The Globe and Mail reports.

CRA sent a request for access to the tax reporting of the exchange from October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2018, that is, on the date when QuadrigaCX tentatively began problems with the withdrawal of funds.

The E&Y auditor, acting as the trustee of the exchange, intends to discuss the tax request and obtain permission from the court to disclose information.

At the same time, the company noted that one way or another they are forced to comply with the CRA requirements, although this will take a lot of time and delay the payment of compensation to victims.

At the beginning of the year it became known that QuadrigaCX lost access to user funds by $ 190 million, and somewhat later, Indian authorities confirmed the death of the founder of the exchange, Gerald Cotten.
