What’s new?

The remarkable internal DEMODAY took place several days ago, where developers demonstrated ready-made features of KICK v4.0. It was the first presentation of the platform functionalities, where components of the system interact with each other as it is contemplated within the framework of the KICK ECOSYSTEM. Already, it is possible to register and get authorized to access the platform via email, Facebook and Google.

DEVOPS

KICKICO company takes care not only of the functional components of the product but also of the thorough maintenance, scaling and firm delivery of new functions to industrial servers. The DevOps is employed within the corporation — such methodology enables close interplay between the developers and the operating IT unit involved in servicing cloud and server solutions, monitoring systems and ensuring uninterrupted availability of services. To improve a delivery process of new product updates, CI/CD (continuous integration and continuous delivery) have been embedded for all services, which is an automated pipeline that tests every change of the developer’s code and delivers it to the Kubernetes-based work environment. Kubernetes is an infrastructure based solution developed by Google. It allows to conduct continuous functioning of the ECOSYSTEM services and automate the delivery of new releases to users.

Implemented features:

Completed installation and setup of the equipment in the data centre for KICKEX Exchange.
Deploying KICKID; setting up a service of continuous delivery and testing of new functions (CI / CD pipeline) for the KICKID
Deployment of additional environments for KICK4.0 microservices
Deployment stage environment for accounting core
- CI/CD for KICKREF
Setting up traffic routing between microservices

Features in progress:

KICKREF

Every member in the KICK ecosystem can create their own personalized referral links to different parts of the network. If someone clicks a referral link, joins the KICK ecosystem, and then makes a transaction, the link creator earns a referral commission.
