A quick update from the tech team on their focus over the past week:
- Focus on ensuring all quantum swap related API are functioning correctly. Testing on the new wallet beta, the team were experimenting with making, taking and recalling swaps from the interface.
- The efsn code has been updated to 1.16 stable in our lab environment. The week-long tests have been really positive. This will enable us to eventually upgrade to 1.22 stable before main net release.
- The biggest challenge for the technical team has centred around the consensus mechanism for Proof of Stake and ensuring no new forks in the chain. The consensus code is isolated to the DaTong/Consensus directory in the Git repository, feel free to check it out and follow our tinkering. We are currently testing several methods for calculating difficulty and avoiding merle roots. Testing is ongoing.
The Lunar New Year holiday has slowed progress this week but we are revving up next week and expect to have the remaining few issues resolved shortly. The only item preventing the release of PSN 2.0 at this stage is the consensus engine refinements described above.
