Mainnet Schedule Announcement
On Wenchang’s Testnet #2, we continued to work hand-in-hand with our 17 industry-leading genesis validators to conduct an intensive vary of stress checks on personal and public chains. To this point, over 2,200,000 blocks have been mined on the testnet with zero downtime that handed all checks and edge circumstances to make sure the steadiness of the community with 50 validators taking part in whole!
The Section zero mainnet will roll out utilizing a three-stage strategy to make sure that our skilled genesis validators are onboarded easily and step by step increasing with extra community contributors together with ecosystem companions equivalent to wallets and exchanges. These steps have been taken to make sure the very best diploma of decentralization and stability upon deployment.
Section zero Tech Replace
bandcli command-line interface has been patched to assist the Cosmos ledger utility which went reside on Might 15. With this patch, customers will be capable of use the Cosmos app to retailer and stake native BAND tokens on BandChain.
For our Section zero mainnet, we additionally launched a brand new block explorer that’s suitable with any Cosmos-based blockchain known as CosmoScan. The explorer which is constructed on a cutting-edge know-how stack might be fully open-source to permit any blockchain on Cosmos leverage code and operation directions. After conducting quite a few consumer checks, we’ve improved the consumer expertise with notable updates to assist:
- Sending staking-related messages: delegate, undelegate, withdraw rewards.
- Community choice.
- Visibility for all Cosmos-SDK based mostly messages.
CosmoScan would be the official explorer for BandChain and be totally open-source for the complete Cosmos ecosystem.
Section 1 Tech Replace
Codenamed Guan Yu, Section 1 which incorporates oracle performance and creation of knowledge oracle scripts is already reside on the devnet for use for inner testing and auditing with our companions. We used Might to kickstart the analysis work on validator sampling with the objective of selecting a subset of validators to carry out oracle duties in a fashion that’s immune to manipulation.
Our analysis progress documentation could be discovered right here:
Moreover, for Section 1, now we have continued to investigate the relationships between Cosmos-SDK fuel and WebAssembly runtime fuel to higher perceive the way to compute fuel associated to BandChain oracle script capabilities.
The oracle information relayer utility instruments (codename: bandoracled2) have been re-implemented to be modular from the blockchain itself. This ensures that it helps parallelized information supply executions and information reviews.
WebAssembly runtime has additionally been migrated to Wasmer — the industry-standard runtime for WebAssembly written in Rust.
Moreover, 100% test-coverage has been added to all non-generated information in BandChain’s oracle module — it’s now prepared for exterior auditing.
Customized libraries have been launched for information serialization (OBI) with written specs. Test it out right here:
Bridge & CosmoScan
Evaluation on the fuel price to relay information from BandChain to Solidity has been accomplished. The result’s constructive and with the complete writeup to be printed quickly!
Moreover, the mixing code era tab has been added to simplify integration steps with documentation totally up to date to match the newest devnet launch. Try the BandChain documentation right here:
Band Protocol #5 In Improvement Exercise
Santiment, a cryptocurrency information feed for buyers equally to a Bloomberg for the blockchain area, has ranked Band Protocol #5 amongst all ERC-20 initiatives in Might. That is the third consecutive month after March and April that Band Protocol has been featured by Santiment.
Make sure to try their Might growth exercise recap beneath and keep tuned for June growth statistics of Band Protocol.
