July recap
The month of July was primarily dedicated to the continued development of a production ready blockchain capable of supporting the growing needs of the XBridge, XRouter, and XCloud products. The work can be reviewed here: https://github.com/blocknetdx/bitcoin/commits/feature-servicenodes. Testnet builds here: https://gitlab.com/blocknetdx/bitcoin/pipelines/
I continued developing the underlying PoS system. I created the Service Node discovery protocol and began architecting the on-chain Governance System. I also wrote unit tests validating the PoS and Service Node code. On the existing chain, I submitted builds to QA for the upcoming 3.13.2 release, which includes XBridge support for newer chains and other bug fixes and security checks. That work can be reviewed here: https://github.com/blocknetdx/blocknet/commits/3.13.2. I did code reviews on code in the Block DX 1.2.0 release (the 13th release to date).

August Development Overview
The goals for August include continuing the effort to upgrade Blocknet’s core blockchain code. This involves completing the new on-chain Governance System and integrating XBridge, XRouter, and XCloud into the Service Node discovery protocol. The purpose of the new blockchain code (fork of v18 Bitcoin) is to make Blocknet an enterprise ready platform that companies and developers around the world can build on with confidence.

  • New basechain implementation (PoS - COMPLETE)
  • Governance system (in progress)
