After long months - working on Elastic, talking about new/old concepts, hopes and faith that we can create decentralized supercomputer we have done one of the major steps to final release.
Litewallet is live, it will be live as long as you (community) will secure it. Setup nodes and forge. More nodes = more secure network is. More forgers = more secure network is. More hallmarked forging nodes = more secure network is. If we will be in face of attack (DoS) and our network will not handle it will be your, mine (and everyone else interested in this project) fault.
You (all XEL donators) are eligible to secure XEL network (and your XEL). If we will not be able to stand back any DoS attack of course XEL will not die but we will lose trust and valueness.
You can exchange XEL coin now! I hope that couple of quality devs/minds join us during this initial exchange step.
If you want to launch a node here you have guides:
If you're working for exchange and you want to list XEL procedure in most part should be the same as NXT: https://nxtwiki.org/wiki/The_Nxt_API
If you just want to use XEL here you have online wallet: https://wallet.elasticexplorer.org
This wallet is hosted by me directly. Although I believe I secured this node best (Browser --SSL--> CF --SSL--> Node) it's always a better idea to create wallet on your own machine if you're paranoid. Also if you create an account in this wallet be sure to save your passphrase because it's brainwallet! You can access to your XEL with any node but only if you know your passphrase. Also remember that forging with this public wallet is disabled. If you want to forge create your own node.
Big thanks to all open source community, NXT especially. Thanks to them we have secure, reliable, solid, tested litewallet without years of coding. We can now focus on compute part of Elastic.
And of course @EK! Take a look where we have been a year ago and where are we now! Mostly it's your success.
Ideally we don't want to touch litewallet repo anymore. We only want to fix bugs (and we hope that there is no major bugs in litewallet). No more features. Compute part client will be developed on different repository.
Exchange/trade/buy/sell/secure the network and stay with our project and community. We just started.

Nothing to see here, back to work.
