CPChain Community Update 4.0

Dear CPChain Community,
We are approaching the end of May and it is time to recap on the activities and progress CPChain has made in the past month.  There has been a lot of changes in both our community and official team since the last Community Update. We believe these changes have been positive and will continue on working towards more good news for our community.
Unlike the previous updates, we will be posting our Community Update directly on Medium so that our community can read it easily. We still have prepared the PDF version and if you’d like to download the latest CU, please feel free to contact us at the CPChain Official E-mail (info@cpchain.io).

Research and Development (R&D)

R&D is the soul of a good project and CPChain is lucky to have a few capable engineers dedicating themselves to developing our IoT-Blockchain Platform. In the past month we have open sourced the CPChain pre-alpha version. Our R&D team has made progress in the following aspects:

— Release of CPChain Platform Pre-Alpha Version

In the past month (May), one of the biggest announcements from the CPChain R&D team is the release of the Pre-Alpha version of the CPChain Platform. The code has been released as open source and we have shown a prototype of our wallet interface.

— Proxy

We have completed research to support a multi-proxy network which includes:
 1. Support master/slave network model, all slaves register themselves to a centralized tracker.
 2. Support DHT network model, a proxy instance joins the network as a DHT node.
 3. Record <proxy’s eth_addr, (ip, port)> pair both in tracker and DHT network.
 4. Ask tracker to get the (ip, port) for the given proxy’s eth_addr, or randomly pick a proxy
 5. If tracker was taken offline, get the (ip, port) for the given proxy’s eth_addr by querying the DHT network.

— Market

1. Team has developed 20+ Market API support wallet functions
 2. Team has finished design to support advanced query product from ElasticSearch
 3. Team has completed development to modify CI environment for Development

— Chain

1. Wrote a script to update market database with eventLogs in chain.
 2. Updated contracts to standard json input/output format.

— Wallet

1. Team is designing supporting feature of multiple accounts (buyers and sellers) logging in when using wallet.

2. Team has completed adding a social media function to the wallet client.

3. Team is customizing Tabwidget for switching between different tabs.

4. Team is working on integration of ui and market api.

5. Team is working on chain asynchronous communication.

6. Team is working on chain transaction Queuing design.

7. Team is working on chain transaction monitoring design.

— Wallet User Interface

R&D team has started developing an implementation of our User Interface (UI) in the past month which includes: 
 1. Customizing the layouts of five (5) functional tabs including Cloud Tab and Selling Tab. 
 2. Setting the stylesheets of more than 10 kinds of widgets and making the UI more user-friendly.
 3. Setting up several interfaces between the Market and UI, providing a solid foundation for further development.

Marketing

R&D will determine how far a project can go while marketing will determine how high a project can reach. While putting most of our emphasis on R&D, CPChain has never forgotten how vital marketing is to our future success. In the past month, we’ve made several developments as well as fulfilling promises we had made in CU 3.0.
