              Hi card collectors 

              Just a quick update for our trading card network Cardcodex.  I will be keeping things up to date through posts on here as we progress along with Cardcodex. 

              Everything is running really smoothly so far, both on PC and mobile devices. 

              We now have notifications running on the three main browers, Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge.  So this includes all Android phones, unfortunately IOS does not receive these push notifications though.  These are really important to get people using the site active and involved, especially once a lot of buying and selling starts happening. 

              A couple of other smaller issues on the backend have been sorted and tested. 

              How to set up Push Notifications

              • Visit the site on a browser either on PC or Android (Chrome, Firefox, Edge)
              • Create a free account
              • A notification box will appear, click/press Allow to accept notifications
              • Done!

              Notification Box
