We are very pleased to announce our development is back on track and that the IMC platform is ready for a public beta release!
The development of the webplatform has taken huge steps since we decided to use the new system and we can finally say it was worth it. The web platform is running very smooth and we even added reddis for a frame session system. This also results in a very fast webloading improvements (see the GTmetrix rapport for all details)
Calculating rating system
In order to get honest feedback of our users the system makes use of a calculated review system. This way both client- & business users can share their experiences based on collaboration.
File upload functions on new request
Redis database added for frame session system
In order to make the platform working as smooth as possible we decided to work with frame sessions. When a user logs in the system auto generates a user session and writes the data to file (redis in this case) The advantage is that the framework reads the session from files but all data is still stored in the SQL, this provides a far better user experience.
Improved search box
Each user will receive notifications on their use in the platform like a succesfully placed request/bid, reactions on bids etc.
Working chat system
Personal Overview page
All users will have a personal overview page with information regarding their use on the platform (outstanding and completed requests/bids, rating score etc).
Platform development is still up and it is getting more complete by the day.
Bidding and request part is almost completely finished, these are the updates;
Open/Closed request with time indicator of request post
Tags are visible
Project location is added
Edit user request
Delete user request
Edit user bid
Delete & view user bid
Amount of views on request in request detail page (based op IP)
To give you an idea of how it functions within the platform;
Live request status in overview page
Disable edit bid after request owner accepted bid
The platform gives users the option to rate and review each other after a collaboration
After finish request make comment & rate
And last but not least, our beloved community member @crashbdx has delivered great work by making the IMC website fully responsive. Finally anyone who wants to use the website on their mobile/tablet will see the website as it is supposed to be.
Here is another update in between about our platform development
We finished function parts in mostly request and bidding part to make requests/bidding more complete. We also refined underlaying coding; json string database and edit functions converting and searching in json string. We added the date range picker upon the request/bidding part and added location option (will be completed by an auto-location button and will be implemented in the search function/filter). Location data is now coming directly from database concerning other languages in the future.
Date Range picker added
Database request table function added for multiple category and location
IMC payment option Request/Bidding part
Start & End date in request detail
Urgent ribbon in request overview added
The current IMC website has not been responsive up until now, our beloved community members are here! Members have offered help in order to get the website responsive, a big cheers for our helpfull, enthousiastic and long time supporters of our project! Website files have been sent over and are being looked at, it will be adapted and customized so we have a good look/view on all devices and browsers.
We are glad to bring some good news to the table!
Our development team has been working hard on the demo platform for quite some time now, the development of the platform started out with a laravel framework which did not suit our future plans of expanding the platform once the demo would be released.
In order to have smooth development in the future the new system is using Ajax for its backend functions, bootstrap 3 css and the platform will be responsive for mobile use.
The new system will also make use of a csrf token system and a module system to separate client- and business users for security purposes. We're content with the positive side of rewriting the backend to a more expandable, more secure and stable framework.
The IMC team will create a video on how the platform works in general which will be released the upcoming week. To provide a showcase a few more steps will be needed to grant users limited access and permissions regarding the use of the platform while it is still under development.
Below you will be able to see the overall progress and what we are working towards at the moment.
- New secure login and register process, with e-mail verification (front end not yet connected)
- Request overiew, the request page will show all requests including a category filter. Depending on the type of request the correct library is applied;
* Container buying/selling
- New editable profile page
- Create a new request part is fully functional for client & business users including project budget, start date and location a.o.
In the upcoming week the same functions will be written in order to let business users add their services including an overview page and category filter as well.
- Business users can make use of a bidding system. Users can send a bid directly upon the request, outstanding bids will be shown in an overview and client users will be notified of a new bidding.
Once a request is accepted by a client the bid status will automatically change from 'pending' to 'approved'.
The platform will stay under construction and new features will be added. To give you an idea what we will be working on the upcoming time;
At first we want the 'add request' part to be fully done, for example starting/end date (date range picker) & location need to be added. As soon as the request part is finished the backend of the bidding system will be built.
A part of more jobs to be completed;
Overview page of personal requests/services
Front end user profile page
We are planning to spotlight the progress of the development more in the upcoming weeks! The progression of implemented features will be shared more with our community through small updates on our website and social media.
The arrival of the new website is getting closer, with great work of our community members Jack & Jill Fleek who have been working around the clock to make the new site happen.
All main pages have been designed and are functional, the team is now working on the last parts that will be implemented in the website but details and small functionalities still need to be addressed.
A new graphic roadmap is being developed at the moment, the roadmap goals will not be changed as IMC has a clear vision for the future.
The new blog part for the website will be made more attractive and with better overview and details. IMC will keep posting the latest updates and news for concerning the Intermodal Coin project.
It will be possible to sign up through the website for receiving the latest news updates about the project also the contact form allows visitors to contact IMC.
After finishing all details, functions and adding of the main content the website will need a final review and the announcement of the release will be made.
Intermodal Coin has been added to Mycryptostats
Mycryptostats is a crypto currency portfolio and miner monitoring tool where you can easily view your crypto portfolio, coin prices, balances and mining/masternode activities.
The new website for Intermodal Coin is starting to take shape. First content and design has been written, upcoming week the team will discuss the future plan for the website and which features will be integrated. There has been a small delay because of the responsiveness of the website which is solved by now which means the new website will be ready for pc, tablet and mobile use.
From here we will start editing the design to our likes and also start to implement the content which has been prepared for the website.
Below you can find some previews of the website:
Besides the recent updates of our Mac & Linux wallets including the new bootstrap we now have updated our wallet in order to solve the annoying high cpu usage of the wallet.

Other great news is that the Intermodal Coin will be listing on its second exchange called Bitexbay
Bitexbay is a newly founded exchange which is adding new coins on daily basis and is expanding their services rapidly. They will also start their promotion in the upcoming weeks to get more known and attract other projects. IMC will be added within the upcoming week, once we are listed trading IMC will be possible on BitexBay!

The IntermodalCoin team has recently started working on the development of the renewal of the intermodalcoin.online website. Our first progress is starting to show and the first designs have been made and currently we are in deliberation about graphics, features and content.
Besides the new website we are working on new graphics for the IMC timeline. The design of the new timeline will show the progress of the project with very attractive graphical features.
The platform development is also taking its course, most of the backend functions have been rewritten for a smooth flow of the system and responsiveness. Review functions have been written and expanded for a clear overview for each user after collaboration. Our developers are also looking into a chat functionality for the platform as where users can have direct contact and file uploading between parties as well.
In collaboration with community team members future plans are being worked out for decentralized database using IPFS and use case for IMC within the platform.
We have great news on the wallet part of IMC, we have uploaded new wallets for Linux & Mac and a new bootstrap in order to sync the wallet faster on our official Github page.
Our development for the IMC wallet made progress as well, the bug causing the high CPU usage is being tackled and will be solved with the new wallet update.

Further we have much more very exciting news!
IMC has been working on setting up a new marketing strategy as well for the past weeks and as the intermodal coin community is very valued it is also involved in the project.
This way we managed to set up a highly motivated marketing team with great help of the IMC community members.
On marketing level we made great progress;
- Set up a new bounty program consisting out of several attractive bounties and IMC give aways.
The bounty program will start from June 6th and will last until June 27th.
- The IMC logo has been rebranded
- New IMC banners for social media platforms have been designed:
- Multiple promotion videos soon to be released!
- Press releases on multiple websites
There has also been a radio interview by MasterNode Spotlight about IMC. During the interview one of our community members explains the goals and potential of IMC.
All this great work couln't have been achieved without the outstanding help of the community members, a special shout out goes out to Taegus, Trebor, Jack- & JilLFleek, and many others in the community that helped over the passed few weeks.
The past weeks we have been working on the design and UI of the IMC demo platform.
Main templates and designs are as good as finished now.
Add new Request
Add new Service
Below are some screenshots we posted on our Github server as a preview.
The upcoming week we will use to finish the design completely and getting the backend code as good as ready.
After releasing our 1.0.6 with the new v2 protocol about 2 weeks ago we encountered some small bugs.
Our devs have been working hard to solve these bugs (like the wallet's high CPU usage for example) and making some other improvements.
We plan to release the new 1.0.7 update end of this weekend / beginning next week.
But there is more positive news !
Although we did not plan to use the demo platform "live" with real companies and clients already but more as an initial showcase, it's as good as functional and we have several companies interested to test it out and do the first deals over the IMC network. We are considering and discussing to cooperate with a limited group in order to test the platform and see what can be improved from the demo version.
We believe by doing so it exposes IMC a little bit more, some real deals will be done and the most important we will receive feedback from real companies in this industry !
This week we have released our 1.0.6 IMC Wallet for Windows and Linux.
The new 1.0.6 release contains fixes for multiple vulnerabilities found in the sourcecode, a new masternode reward system and a protocol upgrade from 1101 to 1102. (It also includes the final fix for payouts on larger pools).
From block 150 000 on older wallets using a protocal version lower then 1102 will not be able to connect to the IMC blockchain anymore, we strongly advise you to update directly to 1.0.6.
IMC Wallet 1.0.6 - Win
IMC Wallet 1.0.6 - Linux
Finishing the last touches for the release of our 1.0.6 IMC Wallet next week, updated our website after ICO end and Exchange listing on CryptoBridge, Dev team started development of the IMC Platform where Intermodal businesses and clients can connect. We hope to be able to present you a demo shortly but before this we are planning a major wallet update (1.0.6) with a lot of fixes and improvements.
This week, after our ICO ended, we are listed on CryptoBridge Exchange. Here at IMC we like to finish our roadmap as quicky as possible and this is another point tackled down, we are exactly on schedule and finished every promised point in time.
ICO is about to finish, we updated our wallet to 1.0.5, it includes a fix for payouts on larger pools. We rushed this update out because we feared this problem in the 1.0.4 wallet could cause problems not even for pool payouts but possibily danger our exchange listing. Next week we are probably going to be listed on CryptoBridge Exchange, this was the prefered exchange of our IMC community according to the poll we had.
