We have been considering a restructuring of the FT roadmap for a while now and we have finally come to a conclusion. Anyone following this project since the beginning of its development knows that we are constantly working on improving whatever it is that we are doing. More recently, we released TokenGen 3.0, not even 3 months after we released TokenGen 2.0.
We hadn’t really planned for the TokenGen 3.0 update in the old roadmap, but it is something that we thought we needed to do and so we did it. The reason behind this is the fact that, in this emerging blockchain industry, the opportunities are countless. Thus, smart businesses must not limit themselves to roadmaps set so far back in the past that they got dust on their letters.
This has led to us restructuring the Fabric Token roadmap as we felt the old one was extremely outdated – after all, we came up with it back in May 2017. The new roadmap is much simpler and better reflects what we’ve been focused on recently and the unplanned progress we have made so far.
Why We Restructured the Roadmap?
As mentioned in the quick intro above, we felt that the old roadmap was very much outdated and no longer fully reflected our vision for the Fabric Token platform development.
We have switched our focus from releasing MVP-level apps and incrementally improving them, to making our 1.0 product versions production ready for a wider set of use cases. This meant that some of the efforts we planned to dedicate to DApp Workbench early on were redirected into perfecting TokenGen, and we’re proud to say that the end result is the best automated crowdsale creator on the market.
The close to 40 TokenGen project creations before we have even started marketing it stand to reaffirm this conclusion. Оf course, the incremental improvements will still continue for years to come.
We have had discussions with interested parties, and our conclusion is that, DApp Workbench should follow suit. And so, we have decided to extend the scope of DApp Workbench features that will be part of the 1.0 version.
We will always strive to deliver high quality products but doing so in an industry where most of the technologies being used are still under heavy development themselves is not the easiest of tasks but most importantly, it is a very time-consuming task.
And we’d much rather prefer to take our time and perfect the products we have set out to make and then release fully-working software that will catch the attention of our target market instead of releasing a buggy app not fully tested that will just discourage potential customers and spectacularly lower the credibility of our project as a whole.
The New Fabric Token Roadmap
As you probably heard, a new developer joined our team this month. This increase in programming firepower has allowed us to improve our development schedule a lot as we are now working simultaneously on TokenGen, DApp Workbench, and the Fabric Store.
After the TokenGen 3.0 update, our main focus is now on DApp Workbench, but we will still be bringing improvements to TokenGen and we will also be developing the Fabric Store. Without further ado, here’s the new Fabric Token roadmap:
- Q4 2018 – TokenGen 4.0 official release.
- Q1 2019 – DApp Workbench 1.0 official release.
- Q2 2019 – Fabric Store 1.0 official release.
- Q3 2019 – TokenGen 5.0 official release.
- Q4 2019 – DApp Workbench 2.0 & Fabric Store 2.0 official releases.
As promised, extremely simple and straight to the point. Now, we are currently considering if we will be releasing a DApp Workbench beta so we could gather some valuable feedback before the 1.0 release. Once we reach a conclusion, we will let the community know. Or, we might just drop the beta by surprise. We’ll see what happens.
Specifications on each of these milestones will be published in blog posts as we near the release of each of these products. As usual, we will be as detailing as possible so the FT community knows what’s coming. On one final note, the new Fabric Token roadmap is now updated on the About page as well.
In the end, we are very happy with the development of the Fabric Token ecosystem so far. TokenGen has already surpassed our initial vision for the tool and with the next updates we have planned, it will certainly remain in a league of its own.
As for DApp Workbench and the Fabric Store, we can’t wait to show the blockchain industry how much these tools will improve the Fabric Token platform and speed up blockchain adoption on an enterprise level. Some really exciting times are ahead so stay tuned!
