Developers interested in working with decentralized networks may be interested to see that Status.im has announced an experimental API. Status is an open source messaging platform and mobile browser for the Ethereum network that allows users to use digital currency and interact with decentralized applications called DApps. The API is meant to allow developers to create decentralized chatbots as well as integrate their decentralized apps with the user interface of Status. To gather feedback on the API, Status is currently holding a virtual hackathon. Total prize money is $25,000 and the competition goes through June 10th. If you want to take part, don’t forget to read our advice on how to have a successful hackathon.

Moving to the ecommerce space, Ecomdash, provider of inventory management software announced that they have expanded their API offering. Changes are focused around inventory listings for a retailer’s products. The API allows developers to integrate the platform directly with third party software.

Lastly, Movesense has publicly launched a sensor and corresponding SDK to power motion sensing applications. The toolkit includes an open internal API, software libraries for building mobile apps for iOS and Android, the sensor software platform and code examples. When asked, Movesense said that there isn’t currently a JavaScript SDK but that customer feedback may make it a possibility in the future. Interested developers can access the API and sample code via a private Bitbucker project site. In July, when the firmware reaches Level 1 beta, the code will be moved to a public GitHub site.
