Technical and Weekly Updates

Bluzelle

  • Added a new version of code to the GitHub public repo that resolves issues for new validators to set up the proper state for Bluzelle’s storage services.
  • Relaunched the test network as a v10.0 fork of the existing mainnet, successfully. This is vital as it brings our test network up to parity with our mainnet & the test network is being used for GAMMA 4 testing.
  • Work is progressing on bringing up redundant new Big Dipper and new gateway sentry instances for the mainnet.
  • Added delegation & re-delegation to our Javascript SDK & Curium-CLI.
  • Added new sentry nodes to our mainnet that now enable snapshots. This has been tested.
  • With the addition of snapshots, new nodes can now turn on State Sync. State Sync allows a new node to sync up with our mainnet (now with over 3.5M blocks) in a matter of minutes, vs many days previously. This is a huge achievement that allows new nodes to join quickly.
  • Added & updated README for our public repo to assist in the deployment of new nodes by our community.

GAMMA 4

  • The next release of GAMMA 4 will be multiplayer — something everyone is asking for. Last Friday, we completed the PoC (testing the server communication times). It was successful!
  • The tasks left to complete are all in the backend and will require no POC:
  • Implement rank system
  • Implement Matchmaking rules (which rank player should be faced with the rank player)
  • Implement security and anti-cheating measures.
  • Implement UI and Screen flows for matchmaking.
  • Test and debugging.
