RISE is one of the first blockchain projects to have its core code base written in TypeScript. RISE aims to offer developers Software Development Kits to enable the creation of Decentralized Distributed Applications.

On April 11 RISE TypeScript developer Andrea Baccega has published an announcement on Medium reporting that TypeScript Core 1.0.0 is now available for download. The RISE Core was reportedly written so that the inner-code dependencies were easier to both manage and test. The developer reported that the team did their best to write less and more maintainable code, also updating all third party dependencies.

The development team of the project has already started working on 1.1.0 version, where they will try to push the boundaries and achieve a fair amount of theoretical transactions processed per second without giving up on security. Moreover, they plan to renew and improve RISE wallet.

It is also worth noting that the RISE blockchain was integrated into Ledger Nano S hardware wallet.

Social platform for petitions Change.org announced the launch of a screensaver that mines Monero on users' computers. All tokens will be transferred to the charity fund of Change.org. This is reported by Coindesk.

This initiative was launched in partnership with the marketing agency Tracelocke Brazil.

Representatives of Change.org report that the screensaver will consume resources only when users do not use the computer. According to their calculations, if 10 thousand computers will run the screensaver for 12 hours a day, the charity fund will be transferred $ 10 thousand monthly.

At the moment the program is available only for Windows users and the platform did not report on the release plans for the version for macOS.

Note that at the end of April, a similar action was launched by the Australian unit of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund; (UNICEF). The website "Page of Hope" mines Monero cryptocurrency.
