Digix Dev Update — Mar 10 2017

Since we last spoke just over a week ago, a lot has happened. As a solution to the Ropsten spam attacks, with the help of a few friends, deployed an entire new testnet called Kovan. With regards to Kovan, we helped write most of the documentation for users and validators, and have been helping out with the faucet service (simply sending those who request KETH to them when they need it).

We also redeployed our entire existing contract codebase to Kovan, with the addition of the Asset Vendor Interface (the contracts that allow gold bar vendors to register new bars). Thanks to the recent truffle upgrade, it was a simple as a minor config file update and we were good to go re-deploying and importing the contract metadata via NPM into any kind of app we wanted.

Amongst other Spectrum features, I’ve been working on the associated user interface to allow vendors to register bars. Web3-redux has helped out a lot in with writing the UI — getting data from the blockchain and creating transactions whilst transparently hooking into the signing UI based on the type of account that the address is associated with.
