Having doubled the Band Protocol technical crew previously two months, our engineers proceed to work extensively on the performance of BandChain Section 1 which is stay on the devnet alongside quite a few companions who will likely be integrating upon Mainnet launch. As well as, we now have applied varied patches to oracle scripts and CosmoScan whereas additionally releasing a frontend utility software for initiatives to question knowledge immediately from BandChain.
BandChain Section 0: Genesis Ceremony
The BandChain mainnet launch is LIVE and absolutely purposeful with the variety of validators rising from the unique 17 skilled genesis validators to 48 energetic validators bonding over 80% of the overall BAND provide and producing over 1,000,000 blocks.
Stage 1, the Genesis Ceremony, was accomplished efficiently on June 10 and marked an necessary milestone for Band Protocol as we started to onboard extra ecosystem companions and allow staking to the general public.
BandChain Section 0: Finishing Stage 2, Commencing Stage 3
Two weeks after BandChain Section Zero launch, we now have onboarded quite a few exchanges, wallets, and early group validators which might be supporting the Mainnet — extra on this within the partnership growth part.
With the community secure and more and more rising every day, we’re able to start Stage Three of the BandChain launch which is able to permit anybody to run a validator node — a vital step in the direction of the entire decentralization of BandChain.

BandChain Section 1 Replace
The Guan Yu (Section 1) devnet with oracle performance has been patched to Cosmos model v0.38.four and varied elements have been up to date to make use of the OBI normal. Moreover, we now have improved REST endpoints for higher developer expertise, enabled Google Cloud assist for OWASM executors and enhanced oracle script execution with Wasmerio — the main WebAssembly Runtime supporting WASI and Emscripten.
Oracle Script Replace
The information oracle script on BandChain, which permits builders to create fine-tuned decentralized oracles in a permissionless setting has been upgraded to enhance safety by means of safeguards to examine import, export, and reminiscence restrict for WASM execution. We’ve additionally added reminiscence out-of-bound exams and improved the construct means of WASM runtime.
Extremely requested from the group, we now have additionally fast-tracked the event of CosmoScan, releasing the ‘redelegate’ performance function and including validator photos for visibility. The readability of error messages have additionally been improved with an up to date instance of Oracle Script integration code to adjust to the OBI normal.
Frontend Utility Instrument (bandchain.js)
We’ve added a software for any frontend to question knowledge from BandChain. This enables DApp person interfaces to leverage trusted oracles that Band Protocol provides to faucet into real-time worth feeds of selection and varied real-world knowledge factors with out trusting a centralized Third-party.
BAND Staking Information with Ledger Pockets
With Stage 2 enabling token switch and staking on BandChain, our crew has launched a information on easy methods to stake BAND immediately on CosmoScan utilizing a Ledger Pockets in addition to explaining some key terminologies and ideas behind staking.
